    AIRUSH FRAME TECHNOLOGY

    Airush Frame Technology distributes the load off all stitch lines on all main panels of the canopy area during impact in 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.

    AIRUSH PULLEY

    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 kites.

    4-PIECE STRUTS

    The 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.

    SPS VALVE

    Airush has added the all new SPS (single inflation system) to all kites to allow for a quick and easy inflate to start the session and an even quicker deflate to end the session.

    UNITY STRUT CONNECTION

    The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point from strut to leading edged 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.

    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.

    F.B.I ONE PUMP VALVES

    Featured in all 2015 kites, except the DNA, the new Fast Bladder Inflation (FBI) features a new Angled Plastic Unit for reduce wear, increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing that eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, resulting in a quick and easy inflation.

Description

The Varial X has been an ongoing development to meet the needs of high performance riders looking to do everything from boosting, wakestyle and waves. For 2015, the Varial X has a complete redesign while maintaining its character of quick, powerful and versatile. The SL-C concept behind the Varial X has remained while everything else has changed to meet a more demanding customer. A focus on wider windrange, a secure gust response, and easier relaunch was the outcome of a newer tip to chord ratio, a dynamic new wingtip layout and strut placement.

Bridging the gap between high-end performance and everyday riding, the Varial X is the kite to choose.

The Varial X durability has been increased further with the Technoforce D2 by Teijin along with the Airush signature Poly Load Frame to give an amazing rigidity and strength throughout the entire Airush canopy.

The Lab

TECHNOFORCE D2 BY TEIJIN

the-lab-icon-placeholder

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.

SLC DESIGN

the-lab-icon-placeholder

The Supported Leading Edge c-kite or SLC is dedicated to riders who want everything from a 5 line C-kite in a 4 line format. The SLC concept gives a C-shape arc and squarer wingtips, which delivers great turning and direct response in combination with the bridle that supports the leading edge, great range, depower and relaunching abilities.

V3 Bridle

the-lab-icon-placeholder

The V3 bridle system contributes significantly to the feeling and performance of supported leading edge kites, in addition the total depower adds immensely to the safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, give a range of movement. The result is 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.

Poly Load Frame

the-lab-icon-placeholder

With the overwhelming positive response of the Aramid Load Frame being used in the Razor and Wave. Airush has decided to implement the same concept of structural integrity and performance into the Lithium, Varial X, and Diamond with the all new Poly Load Frame. Durable Polyester Fibers are used just like Aramid, strategically placed along the kite to give a more solid connection and prevent stretching throughout the canopy. This proven technique is one of a kind and only used with Airush kites.

Tips & Tuning

“We had a lot of feedback on the 2014 Varial X, which indeed was an amazing kite. With this feedback we had to make a hard decision whether to try to tweak our current platform, or approach from a different direction to meet the requirements of the riders. We decided to do a redesign of the kite taking quite a few characteristics from the Lithium such as a more low-end feel and quicker relaunch, while keeping the Varial X boosting, turning and bar feeling which was very important to keep. “
