The new Lithium is for the rider looking for a kite that provides an endless amount of fun on the water, the Lithium is the ultimate in all-around hooked-in freeride performance kite.
Versatile in the surf, easy to ride, and light at the bar, the Lithium is predictable and stable in the air, and has incredible park ability.
The powerful three strut delta hybrid design enjoys a huge wind range and, combined with the wingtip shape and strut layout, ensures the quickest response through the window as well as instant relaunch.
The Lithium is equipped with the V3 Bridle System. The key benefit of the V3 bridle system is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered, increasing the usable wind range and overall performance significantly while adding immense safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys result in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding.
Year after year, the Lithium has been refined to meet the needs of riders who simply just love to kite.
The changes are significant yet still hold true to those who have been following the Lithium range through its progression. You will find that the Lithium has improved jumping and hangtime, lighter, more balanced bar feeling, and overall faster steering due to the change in planform and leading edge design.
The Lithium features Techno Force D2 canopy material. 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.
With the easy-to-use design of the Lithium, it is clear why it’s the World’s favorite freeride kite!
The Lithium has certainly been a shop favorite for all-around freeride and for teaching. Airush kites certainly hold up well to the abuse seen in a school setting, which says a lot about durability and the shape of the canopy after seasons of hard riding. If you're looking for a kite to do it all and last as long as possible, we'd all point you to the Airush Lithium for the pinnacle of durability in freeride thanks to the Techno Force D2 canopy.
