The Lithium Progression Kite
The Lithium Progression construction features an amazing number of features while still living up to its name of simplicity, durability, and performance. The Lithium Progression kite features the industry standard, Teijin T9600 Single Rip Stop Canopy, which is extremely resistant to UV, stretching and the abuse that kiters deliver on a daily basis.
The V2.1 Bridle System on the Progression offers a functional and stable setup when working together with the Delta Hybrid Design. This combination gives the most amount of wind range while riding and makes relaunching extremely fast.
Unique to the Lithium Progression is the multi-strut inflation system with 9mm Inflate Valves. Although simple, this inflation system has proved reliable over years of use throughout the industry. This multi-strut inflation system allows for easy maintenance and repairs, especially in scenarios where the kites are used extensively.
The Switch Progression Board
The Switch Progression takes the ever-popular design and construction of the Switch into a super easy and comfortable board to start and to continue your kiteboarding progression.
For all-round entry-level freeride, the Switch Progression features a parallel outline and a refined and smooth flex pattern combined with a flatter rocker for amazing easy planing and upwind ability.
The Switch Progression features the Airush Multi-zone Biotech construction - a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density using the natural material. The Progression range is constructed with an ABS rail to make sure that your board stays strong and can handle impact through the early stages of progression.
The Progression Kite Bar
The control bar for the kite. This bar has been finely honed over 6 years now and has a reliable and versatile reputation. Suitable on all kites from 6-14m2 with an adjustment mechanism for the rear line position it has a tried and tested safety system call the "brain" that has proven highly effective in schools and throughout the entire Airush range year after year. It's all compartmentalised should anything need replacing and offers the best geometry for all kites in the Airush range (and most mainstream hybrid 4 line kites).
Team Waist Kitesurfing Harness
The Airush Waist Harness was developed as a compact design for high freedom of movement, combined with a high level of support derived from the molded 3D inner and outer skin. Due to the improved load distribution, less thickness is required, which reduces the overall bulk of the harness. DUAL BELT SYSTEM The new Dual Belt can be used as a single stage or double stage belt, depending on the amount of support required by the rider. The primary stage of the belt is integrated into the inside skin of the harness for a quick internal membrane that tightens the inside layer. T-LOCK SPREADER BAR The new spreader bar features an innovative and functional T-Lock system that is easy to clip closed, with an additional safety lock to prevent the bar from accidentally releasing.
Airush Changing Poncho
The discreet and warm way to get in and out of your wetsuit at the beach. One size fits all with a warm toweling fabric, it is a must for beach life!
