First to the finish with the VXR race kite

Designer's goals

The VXR is perfect for seasoned competitors and everyday dragsters. Gaining results in the 2011 Female North American and European Championships and 2011 Male KTE France and Spain Grand Masters – the VXR has been a top contender on the national and international circuit. Mark Pattison takes the kite to new areas of possibility, having spent numerous hours developing with the Airush race division. The result: an even more refined and competitive machine that points higher upwind and speeds faster downwind in the lightest of conditions.

Kitedesigner tips

In my opinion, Racers all have their own preferences on how they tune the kite.  The VXR is a high aspect kite so pay attention to how it flies in lighter winds.  Secretly the VXR is a crazy boosting kite!


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.
