Product DescriptionAirush Lithium Zero
The Airush Lithium zero introduces a revolutionary new kite size and configuration to the range, taking the all-terrain performance of the name into the lightest of wind.
With no struts it weights the same as a Lithium 10m, but is nearly twice the size. The light weight, power and geometry make it incredibly stable in light winds; no overflying, no stalling, and takes light wind riding into a new dimension.
Powerful lightwind specialist for the lightest of conditions
Takes the concept of making lighter kites to a new level by eliminating all struts. With four years of development along side the Airush One, the result of reducing struts and overall weight highlights the obvious benefit, resulting in the most innovative light-win d kites on the market. At 3.4 kg the 18m Zero is comparable in weight to a regular 10m kite.
Large kites do not need to be sluggish and slow. Quick and lively, the Airush Lithium Zero, eliminates unnecessary material and drag, making response and steering effortless and fun. Boasting unbeatable power to weight ratio the Zeros jumping and hang-time capabilities are excellent for heavier riders.
Not only quick, the Zero is ideal for the lightest wind wave riding with minimal drag giving the words “drifting” and “stability” a whole new meaning. Just park your kite and watch the Zero follow you as you ride the wave down the line.
Who said pulleys are not a good idea?
The truth is, done right, they are essential with only gains in handling response and absolutely essential in maintaining handling characteristics throughout the depower range. Without the pulleys the kite will not steer on full depower. The V4 Bridle has a system developed over the past 4 years ensuring that the kite turns and feels the same on full depower as it does on full power, and more than this, the handling feel is so close to the direct connection kites that designers and testers consider the handling advantage of a direct connection kite as virtually non existent.
While you would think that no struts is a bad idea for water restarting, the truth is somewhat different. The leading edge sweeps back at the tips and as soon as the kite points down wind and there is enough wind to catch the canopy it fills the body and the kite hot launches easily. In winds of under 5kts, there is virtually no wind on the surface of the water and seeing as the will handle perfectly in the air in these winds, it’s not a good idea to ditch it, but saying this, there really is no other kite that will relaunch in these winds, ram airs included, yet the zero will handle properly in half the wind of a normal tube kite, and has been called a ‘flysurfer killer’ by many chasing super lightwind performance..
