For the rider looking for a kite that provides an endless amount of fun on the water, the Airush Lithium V13 is the ultimate all-around freeride performance kite. Versatile in the surf, easy to ride, and light at the bar, the Lithium is predictable and stable in the air, and has incredible park ability. The powerful three-strut delta-hybrid design enjoys a huge wind range and, combined with the wingtip shape and strut layout, ensures the quickest response through the window as well as instant relaunch.

The Airush Lithium V13 is equipped with the V3 Bridle System. The key benefit of the V3 bridle system is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered, increasing the usable wind range and overall performance significantly while adding immense safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys result in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding.

The Lithium features Techno Force D2 canopy material. This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using high tenacity double-coated polyester yarn in a double ripstop configuration. The double coating protects the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage. This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive for as long as possible.

The Single Point System on the Lithium V13 features a XL Boston Inflate/Deflate valve making inflation effortless. While the V3.2 Bridle improves the steering when overpowered or sheeted out, ideal for Wave riding or riding more powered up. The focus of wingtip and strut layout in conjunction with the Delta Hybrid design ensures the quickest response through the air as well as instant relaunch. With amazing park power, stability, and ease of use, the Lithium is simply the perfect kite.

Airush Unit Control Bar:

For a premium all-around control system that is precise, reliable, and has an expansive trim range, look no further than the Unit Bar.

In surf or Big Air, the depower line gives you uncluttered confidence. In hand, you can feel the reduced diameter tubing make sheeting-out reliable and effortless while remaining neat, compact, and durable.

Even though the Airush Lithium is very user friendly and has a smooth flight capable of delivering extra power and boost when needed. When you require extra power, simply pull in the bar and send the kite over head. The kite will act just like a turbo button is pushed and will become more powerful!

The Airush Lithium V13 has a comfortable bar pressure and direct feel and allows the rider to perform any trick without worrying about losing control. It is the perfect all round flying machine for all types of riders and it performs great in a wide range of wind conditions.

Airush Load Frame:

The Airush Load Frame featuring WebTech has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability, without compromising on weight.

By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we are able to minimize or completely remove the heavier fabric and utilize the Ballistic high-modulus polyethylene web fibers instead – increasing strength and minimizing weight.

 
High Modulus Yarns:

Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which each single yarn can carry 40kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider web.

These yarns are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate when under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that traditionally would have run through the canopy. At the same time, they carry the primary load of the canopy, preventing stretch and increasing long-term performance.

 
Technoforce D2:

This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using high tenacity double-coated polyester yarn in a double ripstop configuration. The double coating protects the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage. This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive for as long as possible.

This exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.

 
XL Inflate / Deflate Valve:

The XL inflate/deflate valve features an insanely easy and fast way to inflate and deflate your kite.

The large opening creates maximum flow of air and reduces fatigue and stress on your pump.

This in conjunction with the Airush high-velocity pump makes inflating your kite extremely fast to get you on the water as quickly as possible.

 
Airush Bumpers:

Airush bumpers are found throughout the leading edge of the kites to reduce wear and increase durability on rough surfaces.

These bumpers are key for increasing the lifespan of Airush kites.

 
Kevlar Reinforcement:

Kevlar, found in bulletproof vests, is found throughout the Airush kites.

These Kevlar reinforcements are only put in the most critical areas to protect from wear and tear while still minimizing weight that affects the kites performance.

 
SPS and FBI:

The oversized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimizes inflation and deflation.

The Fast Bladder Inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing, thus eliminating tube kink, reducing stress on your pump, and enabling quick and easy inflation.

The SPS cover supports the tubing, further limiting UV damage to the material and preventing over flexing when packing.

 
Rear Line Adjustment:

The Rear Line Adjustment featured on all Airush kites allows for quick changes in the kites bar pressure and response.

With adjustment towards "High" the kite will have increase bar pressure and decrease turning speed. Moving back towards the rear of the wingtip will decrease bar pressure and increase turning speed.

Smaller kites have 3 Bar Pressure settings, Larger kites only have Medium and Low Bar Pressure options available.

 
V3.2  Bridle System:

The V3.2 bridle system, now 10% shorter, contributes significantly to the turning speed and performance of supported leading edge kites. In addition, the total depower adds immensely to the safety benefits.

The Airush Pulleys are made of tough Zytel material for high strength and resistance to abrasion and impact, the Airush Pulley has the pigtails hole directionally correct to eliminate bridle wear. With a breaking strength of 550 kg, the Airush pulley was designed specifically for use on all Airush kites.

Airush Unit Control Bar System

The Airush Unit bar features all the features we could put into a single bar. Starting at the bottom -The Unit bar has a new v2 freestyle leash ring which allows for freestyle mode with the leash connection now behind the IQR rather than hanging off the side. This makes the whole quick release much more compact in freestyle mode and has also increased the strength and reliability in freestyle mode. The Unit bar features a new premium leash with an elasticated webbing bungee and a new quick-release system that’s proven to be much more reliable in the field.

Moving up from the IQR, the Unit bar features a multi-bore tubing PU tube which accommodates both the depower mainline and the landing line, allowing for just a single line to go through the center fitting on the bar. The bar itself features the same stainless steel center fitting with an oversized or enlarged center hole that comes on the Ride bar. The Unit bar is 50 centimeters long with a full 10-centimeter width adjustment available with our modus bar ends taking it out to a 60-centimeter bar when required, by just using a standard fin key. The unit bar features the same 20 increase in floatation EVA bar-ends and increased rear line adjustment available under these bar ends. Coming up to the cleat fitting. This is a custom cleat fitting designed specifically for use with multi-bore tubing and allows for easy access for the landing line into the channel through the multi-bore tube.

The landing line set up on the Unit bar is quite unique it is a high frontside landing line where you have, what appears to be, three lines at the depower bracket

Two of those – your landing line and one front line, go up to the nine-meter position where the bungee that keeps your landing line tight is also located. The reason to do this system is, it gives you all the advantages of kite handling with a low v but allows the landing line to be continuous from your leash attachment all the way to the nine-meter mark meaning no knot being pulled through the multi-bore tubing. This allows the tubing to be much smaller and also much more reliable in the field.

50cm – 60cm Adjustable.
