Airush AP V5 Control Bar
Airush AP V5 Control Bar
The key philosophy of the AP BAR was to create the most minimal design possible that focuses purely on function and bomb-proof durability. As freestyle and wakestyle riders, these philosophies are crucial for equipment that is constantly being used and abused while riding hooked or unhooked.
The AP Bar features a 21mm diameter bar that enables the rider to maintain a solid grip through the most power moves and landings. As this diameter bar is fully customizable, the bar can be cut and adjusted to meet a smaller width if needed.
Although the bar comes stock with a medium sized chickenloop for everyday riding, the AP Bar included an easy to install XL chickenloop strictly for unhooking. A shorter bar throw with a clean freestyle trim strap system gives the AP bar enough range while still remaining function. While doing big kiteloops or pop and slack tricks, it is essential for lines to be as strong as possible. With the AP Bar, a 400kg tested line with extensions has been installed to make this bar extremely durable and versatile.
The Modus 2.0 extendable bar end enables adjustments from 41cm to 51cm with a simple and reliable Allen Key adjustment.
Freestyle Trim Strap:
Approved by World Champion, Alex Pastor, the Freestyle Trim Strap is the hassle free system featured on the AP Bar. This trim strap removes all unwanted flapping parts, for riders doing freestyle or wakestyle tricks.
Brain 3.0 Quick Release:
An industry standard Brain quick release and color-coding on all parts makes the Airush system perfect and hassle free for all riders. The Brain 3.0 is a redesigned below-the-bar swivel making it extremely easy to grip and untwist the LOW-Y front flying lines while riding or stationary.
Modus Bar Ends:
The Modus 2.0 Bar End creates an extremely streamlined bar, with the recessed screw you can easily customize the bar setup with 10cm of width adjustment, to meet the needs of turning speed and response. An updated bombproof stainless steel insert is covered in nylon to allow quick and easy adjustment even when not adjusted for long periods. A soft EVA molded outer shell adds protection for the bar, rider, and equipment.
The Core Bar features a narrow 21mm Diameter grip for all-round comfort.
Low Y System:
The Low Y System allows for a single front line flag out system providing a safe way of killing the power of your kite. Along with improving safety, the Low Y also increases the angle of the front lines, avoiding unnecessary pinching or folding of the kite. By doing so, the wingtips become looser and move more independently, greatly increasing the maneuverability, turning speed and response of the kite.
The new Hard lines featured on the AP Bar include a 400KG breaking strain. Extensions provide a 22m or 20m options allowing the rider to customize their line length to their own style.
Freestyle Specific Leash:
A new freestyle leash designed with our team addresses and fixes some of the major problems that unhooked riders experience during their sessions. An overall longer length leash makes multiple passes and throwing the leash over-head even easier. The use of a larks-head attachment onto the chickenloop or 5th line replace the usual metal hook which prevents unwanted openings or breakage that can occur during missed tricks. It also is a lot easier on the riders’ hands when grabbing. Lastly, the end of the leash features a swivel to easily unwind the leash, which prevents coiling, and breakage.
22m Total = 1m Leader Lines + 19m Lower Lines + 2m Upper lines.
