Airush Compact 2013 Review

Some gear emerges as we query each individual element of kiteboarding and discussion how to give riders just what they need, whilst other products and services are just simply the offspring of what they journey.

Airush have focused on acquiring a spread of kit that appeals towards your exceptional conditions and offers you the applications to just take your kiting to new stages. The Airush tactic is usually to use diverse configurations that very best satisfies the individual rider as a result avoiding any one state of mind that might blind us.

The Lithium can be described as reasonably reduced element a few strut delta hybrid kite which received very favorable recommendations from your tests workforce. Some of the most noticeable change for 2014 is a Poly Load Body which provides reinforcement throughout the kite’s canopy, which Airush tells us helps make a more good link and prevents stretching all through the canopy. The critique team located the Lithium to get a fun, easy to use freeride kite that does most pretty much everything clearly. Supplying medium bar stress and immediate steering response, the Lithium offers a pivot model transform that created incredibly predictable electric power, and relaunched well from lifeless downwind. The Lithium doesn’t have the explosive boosting ability in the Varial X, but is a superb performer for that all around kiter that enjoys freeriding, waves and casual freestyle.

The Lithium arrives together with the Smart Bar five which attributes spectacular telescoping bar size adjustability, plastic depower/throw line, sliding stopper, higher than the bar depower strap with extension handles together with a clean up and crisp push away quick launch. This bar is just about the couple of that mixes the longevity of the plastic coated depower/throw line using an adjustable stopper. Some reviewers noted the world near the handles appeared a tad fast paced, however the tuning controls worked quite properly and permit for a more substantial adjustable length toss. The telescoping bar is tremendously easy to regulate but we advocate creating alterations when you are on land as the bar finishes is often entirely removed. Woman testers commented within the bar humps not fitting their smaller sized fingers though the textured EVA had just the ideal density for consolation and management. In general, this bar received extremely substantial marks for its benefits, perform and luxury.
