Airush Razor Team 2016
The 2016 Airush Razor keeps the dedicated C-Kite feel and performance that wakestyle and freestyle riders demand. Working closely with World Champion Alex Pastor we relentlessly focus on increasing the performance characteristics, specifically mind-blowing pop, unhooked ability and kite looping. The Razor has great range, along with comfort for everyday freestyle riders.
The next generation Aramid Load Frame takes the biggest innovation in kite construction to a whole new level and is combined with the Technoforce D2 by Teijin, for the ultimate combination of durability and lightweight performance.
Considering size specific changes for 2016, the 5.5 m has been refined to add better stability and gust response by lowering aspect ratio and increasing profile depth. A new 15m size has been added, this extra large size has been tweaked to have lower weight by optimizing the size of the reinforcement panels and the LE diameter to make it feel like a smaller kite.
NEXT GENERATION DYNEEMA LOAD FRAME
This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Dyneema Load Frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and UV stability, along with highest long-term reliability of any materials.
TECHNOFORCE D2 BY TEIJIN
This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Aramid Load frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and highest long-term reliability of any materials available.
All Airush kites feature the Hardcore Construction, a focus and commitment to structural integrity.
1. AIRUSH FRAME TECHNOLOGY
Airush Frame technology distributes the load off all stitched lines on all main panels of the canopy area on impact during a crash, while the outer frame features gradient load wingtips that integrates progressive density cloth in the high load areas radiating from the attachment points.
2. ONE PUMP VALVES
Increased wall thickness and oversized diameter of the tubing eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, which facilitates quick and easy inflation.
3. GRADIENT LOAD WINGTIPS
Gradient load wingtips integrate progressive density cloth in the high load areas radiating from the attachment points.
4. FOUR PIECE STRUTS
The new 4-piece strut has added a double folded straight stitch seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce point of wearing. This increases durability and rigidness of the struts in all Airush kites.
5. STRUT CONNECTION
The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point connection from strut to leading egded to create a stiff structure which helps in performance and relaunching. The Unity Strut Connection working in conjunction with the 4 Piece Struts allows for a thinner and lighter strut.
7. LEADING EDGE SEAM
A Leading Edge connection seam with a slick 19mm soft webbing reinforcement to handle harder crashes. Increased mark cloth sections at the front of all canopy seams at the leading edge to stop stitching and seam wear points.
Featured on the Airush Razor Team, the 5th line allows for a simple, safe and effective support system. Ideal for a thinner leading edge and a C-shape arc.
TIPS & TUNING
“The Razor kite has continued to be the premium C-Kite on the market. We have worked with the Pro Team to give them and you what is needed for perfect freestyle and wakestyle performance. We have added a 15m size, which has been an ongoing development over the past few years with our team riders. It has been a weapon during lighter PKRA heats and now we deliver it to the everyday rider who wants to get as much time on the water to learn their freestyle or wakestyle tricks.” – Mark Pattison: Airush Kite Designer
This is a 5 Line kite and works best on the AP bar. The Razor is quite tolerant of being flown on other brands low V 5 line bars as long as you set the 5th line tension up correctly, although why you would want to do this is beyond me ;)
