The Perfect Kite? The 2015 Airush Lithium builds upon unparalleled stability and re-launch capability, while maintaining performance characteristics to meet requirements of riders looking to do a bit of everything.
For 2015, the Lithium has retained it's name as the do-all kite in the Airush range. If you're looking for a bit of everything but haven't found a kite that fits all your needs you need to take a look at the 2015 Lithium. From mowing the grass, freeride, jumping, looping and even in the waves the 2015 Lithium combines industry leading construction into a kite ideal for everyday free-riders looking to incorporate waves and jumping into their riding.
As a new member to the sport the Lithium has some unique characteristics that will make your learning experiance simple and easy. The Delta Hybrid Design allows the Lithium to re-launch with ease while providing a great amount of stability yet still maintains performance to progress your skills. Unlike most entry level kites, you will NOT outgrow the Lithium once you begin to ride.
Most kiteboarders are in the intermediate stage with very few amateurs needing a high performance kite. If you can stay upwind, pop jumps, throw a few back rolls here and there, the Lithium has enough performance to satisfy your needs. The focus on wingtip design and strut layout for 2015 insures the quickest turning and direct response with a good amount of pull and low end.

Poly Load Frame (PLF):
Much like the Aramid Load Frame used in 2015 Airush Team kites, the Poly Load Frame uses a different material to achieve the same results. Poly Load Frame is a polyester fiber that is strategically sewn along the canopy of the kite to prevent stretching. Not only will this increase the longevity of your Airush kite, it creates a solid connection panel to panel to retain the kite's shape while turning.
V3 Bridle System: The bridle system is the key to Supported Leading Edge (SLE) kites and by combining the V3 with 2015 Airush Kites it has deliverd a bar feel that is light but responsive even when depowered and gives the kites enourmous ranges of depower.
New for 2015:
- Refinements in canopy for smaller sizes
- All New XL Inflate/ Deflate Valve and FBI System
- Reinforced Technoforce D2 Canopy
- Trailing Edge Reinforcements
