The 2019 Airush Lithium V10 is a freeride and wave kiteboarding kite with a Delta Hybrid architecture. Featuring Teijin Technoforce D2 Double Ripstop construction and Airush's exclusive Load Frame with WebTech, the Lithium V10 is highly durable for freeriders who ride long and hard and waveriders who want a kite that can come out of the wave rinse cycle unscathed and ready for the next down the line slash session.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
We recommend the Lithium V10 to freeriders and wave riders of all skill levels who want a responsive, tough, and well-built kite with a speedy relaunch and power delivery, excellent drift and stability, and exceptional ease of use.
AIRUSH'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The most premium construction in the Lithium range, the Lithium Core uses the Teijin Technoforce D2 Double Ripstop Canopy and our exclusive Airush Load Frame with WebTech, a combination that makes this kite by far the strongest kite we have ever designed. For riders who spend countless hours on the water, the Lithium Core construction is ideal.
The Single Point System on the Lithium Core features an 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 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.
Included in this premium package is the Deluxe Bag, made using recycled materials. This bag has ample features and pockets to keep everything organized, accessible and clean.

AIRUSH LOAD FRAME V4 featuring WebTech
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.
INTEGRATED HIGH MODULUS POLYETHYLENE 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.
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 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, 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 & 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 kite
RECYCLED POLYESTER KITEBAG
Around 36 billion plastic bottles are produced every year, and more than 30% of non-recycled plastics will end up in the rivers or oceans. Consider this, and remember that these waterways are our playground. We have teamed up with one of the leaders in recycled plastic, and now we produce many of our kitebags and key accessories in collaboration with Waste 2 Wear.
Waste 2 Wear recycle 100% post-consumer plastic bottles into eco-friendly fabrics. This unique process involves turning environmentally damaging waste into useable, sustainable yarns. The recycled yarns are then combined with natural fibers to be woven or knitted into eco-friendly fabrics, suitable for garments, home textiles and accessories.
