"BY STARTING FROM SCRATCH WITH THE ALL-NEW KITE MODEL FOR 2016, THE UNION SETS OUT TO UNITE THE KEY FREESTYLE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE RAZOR, WITH THE KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE INDUSTRY LEADING WAVE KITE AND THE FREERIDE ABILITIES OF THE LITHIUM."

The all new Union is Airush's masterpiece in do it all versatility. From Wake, through freeride to unhooked freestyle, the new Union is designed size by size, adjusting to bring the most incredible de-power performance to the sport in an all new platform. The most exciting kite we have seen in 10 years.
Freeride Boosting with excellent freestyle ability. Quick turning, excellent for waveriding, superb bar feel, excellent drive round corners, good low end power and pushes forward well when loaded for supreme upwind ability. All sizes feel very similar - unique for this range in that the 16 is comparatively very fast, and the 9 quick, but the 6 steady when compared to other kite ranges. They are engineered this way so you can jump from size to size without having to completely adjust your style of riding. The large kites are exceptional this year - the finest mainstream large kites we have ever seen

- Boosts, turns, and responds to inputs very, very well.
- Athletic in feel, with efficiency and very direct handling
- Fantastic feel in ALL sizes - adjusted planshape to make every size feel the same - 16 to 6 - they look slightly different but all feel very similar. 16 is fast and energetic, 6m is solid and trusting - all filling the same role - multidiscipline.
- Engaging and alive to ride with. Have a fast but controlled feel, and constant power - no stopping through fast corners . Efficiency and drive at slower speeds is such that it has a huge ability to punch through lulls, giving it a HUGE sweet spot in power.
- It’s also un-naturally good upwind for a kite that creates so much power at slower speeds.

DYNEEMA LOAD FRAME.
This tech has been with Airush for 3 years now in various forms, but this year we'll see it rolled out right the way through the entire range. It's expensive - but it works - and Airush now have 3 years of proof to back it up. Put simply - it's a dyneema lattice placed on the canopy of the kite, after construction, that marks out a full structural framework to take the load of the kite instead of relying on the canopy cloth. Cloth that is Technofibre D2 - the most expensive and proven cloth in the industry, so unequivocally this IS the strongest canopy construction in the industry right now..
- No front to back splits - ever. At The Kitesurf Centre down in Kent (along with a lot of other testbeds the world over) we had a 9m kite with this technology on and in 250 hours of school use, day in, day out, not once did the canopy rip front to back. In three years we have not seen one kite with the load frame breach this reinforcement. You can tear a section inbetween if you pierce it, but though the dyneema - not possible without a very sharp knife.
- The kite is stiffer - which means more accurate handling, for the frame keeps the kite inside it's design parameters of load and stretch during aggressive movements.
- The kite doesn't suffer from long term stretch - Normal kites bag out very quickly, and this happens with even the highest cloth grades, it's alarming in spped and scope on the cheaper grades, believe me... within 5 uses depending on the cloth. The kite you buy is not the same kite that you bought 6 months earlier - Teijn is very good at not stretching, but it still stretches a lot through the life of the kite. Check out the images below for an accurate and true representation of the physical difference this technology makes.
Choose your kite - pay the money, and be assured that the kite you buy is the same kite you ride a year from now. It's a unique and brilliant technology.
AIRUSH PULLEY
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.
LEADING EDGE SEAM

Airush Core Bar 2016

It is the most versatile bar on the market, enabling riders to have the perfect setup straight out of the bag, or tweak and modify the bar where required. The Airush Core bar features a new directional grooving pattern that helps you hang on through all conditions with maximum grip and comfort.
Developed as the first ever bar that has four length adjustments, the Airush Core Bar can be changed from 45-55 or 52-62 with simple and easy changes. This allows the bar to be used from our absolutely smallest kite to the largest kite in the Airush range.
The PU coated depower line makes sheeting in and out effortless, with two minimal diameter tubing. This PU coated line extends the lifespan of the centerline increasing the reliability of all Airush bars.
The Airush Bars have safety as the first priority. An industry standard Brain Quick release and color-coding on all parts makes the Airush system perfect and hassle free for all riders. Continuing for 2016, the Low Y on the center–lines allows for a quick single line flag out for those situations where you need it the most.
