  • Lightweight single strut geometry.
  • Increased canopy tension & rigidity to increase responsiveness.

 

Control bar Airush Ultra

Staying true to the Ultra name and philosophy, the Ultra Bar delivers a control system that is extremely simple, versatile, and lightweight for advanced riders. Having removed the ability to trim on demand by eliminating the bulky straps or cleats, the depower line is completely clear so that riders can utilize the full extension of their reach for the maximum amount of range.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Minimalist, versatile & lightweight.
  • Extended bar throw.
  • Compact pre-set trim system.
  • Lightweight control bar.
  • Set and forget trim system.

Comments:
We had a mid size hydrofoil kite test and this was my kite to go. I believe the most complete hydrofoil tube kite for light & moderate winds. The bar is super simple and light. Great complete set ups. Low end is great foiling from 10 knots with a 9m but the 9 was easy to handle in 20 knots so great wind range. If I would have a comment than it would be the relaunch. Single struts can have the problem that wat lays down on the canopy. Relaunching can be harder if that happens. especially if you riding in the waves. So that would be a point of consideration in the V4. Further, with now doubt the best single strut hydrofoil kite I have flown so-far.
