The success of the VXR v2 has been the perfect platform to develop the next evolution. The all-new wingtip construction is a longer design for increased aerodynamics throughout the canopy. Two new designs have been added for wind condition specific racing, adding a greater advantage over the competitor. For extreme light wind, the VXR v2 18 incorporates new, skinnier, lightweight bridles, which decrease turbulence throughout the kite for better flying characteristics, no single inflation system and a 3 strut design for 15-20% lighter kite, for 5-12 knot racing. The VXR v2 8m has been adapted to a slightly lower aspect design, taking into account gusty and high winds used in Course and Slalom.
The VXR v2 works best with the Smartbar 5.
Featured on all the 2014 Airush Kites, with the exception of the Razor Team and DNA, the V3 Bridle System adds not only to the safety benefits, but also contributes significantly to the feeling and performance of the kites. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, gives a very smooth and responsive de-power. This allows for steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding. This also enables the kite to be steered and controlled when the kite is completely de-powered which is ideal for wave riding.
The Supported Leading Edge C-Kite, or SL-C, is dedicated to riders who want the most out of a 4-line. The SL-C concept gives a C-Shape arc, which delivers great turning and direct response in combination with Support Leading edge range and relaunching.
We put a lot of focus on the VXR v2. As the popularity of racing grew, we were able to receive more feedback and data to improve the kites. By observing the wind range that these kites are being used in, we have added two completely new sizes, which focus on extremely light and high winds. In addition to this, we redesigned the wingtips adding greater balance. As the performance base of the VXR v2 has increased – Tuning and Adjusting to the wind conditions are absolutely essential. You can read all about this throughout the VXR v2 webpage and in the booklet located inside the kite.
