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.
All Airush kites feature the Hardcore Construction, a focus and commitment to structural integrity.
- This includes a 4 piece strut with bomb proof double sandwich centre seam to reduce the amount of stitching points for reduce wear as well as increased rigidity.
- 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.
Featured on all the 2013 Airush Kites, with the exception of the Razor, the V 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, give a very smooth and responsive depower this allows for steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is. This also enables the kite to be steered and controllable when the kite is completely depowered.
The Supported Leading Edge C-Kite, or SL-C, is dedicated to riders who want everything from 4-line unhooked performance to high depower. 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 characteristics. The SL-C gives the benefits of both worlds in one concept.
"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!"
