The 2013 Airush Razor keeps the C-kite feel and performance that wakestyle and freestyle riders demand.

Kitedesigner tips

The Razor is perfect for freestyle – I designed it to give freestyle/wakestyle riders quite a bit of options to choose from when riding.  For everyday freestyle the best front line adjustment would be the blue pigtail.  This will allow for a lot more range or depower in the kite.  It’s pretty good setting for riders learning new tricks and letting go of the bar – you won’t get hammered as much!

For wakestyle riders and people who want more pop, go for the red pigtail on the front lines.  This will give you the most pop possible out of the Razor.  The trade off will be the range of the kite will decrease – you will need to start using your board to control your speed instead!

The back lines need to be adjusted accordingly to have the perfect balance when unhooking.  I would suggest if you are riding it in the freestyle mode to drop the back lines down 1-2 knots.  Depending on your speed preferences, bringing the back line closer to the front of the kite will slow it down – perfect for wakestyle, park and unhook tricks.  For kiteloops or just fun freestyle – I would suggest the last two points for an extremely aggressive and maneuverable kite.

Bar

The 2013 Smartbar 4 becomes the first and only bar on the market with four size options, fitting the smallest to the largest Airush kites. In addition to the 45-55cm push pin adjustment, the Smartbar 4 features an additional two sizes (52 and 62) of adjustment with the all-new PU rubber coated Airush bar ends. Maintaining its position as the definitive bar choice for all riders by integrating the industry-leading Brain Quick Release, the Smart Bar 4 remains simplistic yet highly intuitive. The 2013 Smartbar 4 is extremely tunable, safe and easy to use. Line combinations of 3/6/14m segments gives the rider more customization, allowing the Smartbar 4 to be flown on 24, 21, 18, 15, or 10m lines! Improvements include the new Low Y System, which integrates a single front-line flag out that ensures peace of mind and meets safety standards, while also increasing kite performance. Airush keeps the hardcore rider in mind with double PU coated line – the only choice for a durable sheeting line – which will give you years of usage. With these new additions to 2013, the Smartbar 4 is a truly smart package.
