2011 Airush Varial Kitesurfing Kite

Optimal kite performance, research and development for the 2011 Varial focused on increased turning speed, power delivery, and bar feel to provide unsurpassed performance and effortless appeal that will continue to thrill riders at every level. Maintaining the stability, lift, and safety of its predecessor, the 2011 Varial goes beyond exceptional, with improved parked power, better relaunch faster turning speed and improved frame stability making the foundation of a great kite, even better. For an entirely new perspective on what superiority feels like in a kite, the Varial 2011 takes the rider to new heights each and every time.

For 2011, ACTive Engineering (Active Conical Tension) is again incorporated into the entire Varial line. This innovative design concept allows the control surfaces of the kite to change their profile in direct response to airflow and kite speed, while leaving the power generating surfaces undisturbed and maintaining a clean airflow over the canopy. This translates into unmatched drift-back stability in dynamic situations such as wave riding or light gusty winds, offering a very stable and forgiving platform that allows the rider to focus more on their riding and less on their kite.

2011 Airush ONE simplicity in performance the power of one

2011 AIRUSH ONE KITESURFING KITE

Airush One Kitesurf Kite 2011

A revolutionary breakthrough for kiteboarding, the Airush ONE incorporates a single strut design that delivers exceptional stability, amazing lightwind performance, and incredible ease of use and safety in a kite that is remarkably simple and fun. With more than 12 months spent on development and fine-tuning, we introduce the AIRUSH ONE kite as a premium Hybrid Delta design for 2011. Airush has made it possible to reduce the weight of the kite by 25-30% lighter than a kite of equal size.

As you set up the ONE for the first time, you will see that it is fast and easy, a no-brainer to rig. With only one strut, there is no need for a one-pump system. A short and simple V1 bridle and sweep of the LE make it nearly impossible to snag your bridle on the wingtip in a crash/inversion situation and allows for full-flag-out safety system enabling the kite to be steered and controllable when the kite is completely depowered. This works extremely well for the emerging surf market.

With its patent-pending single strut design, the AIRUSH ONE boasts a very lightweight canopy that maximizes both the turning surfaces and power generating surfaces, for an increased power-toweight ratio. This results in a kite that has the feel and turning speed of a smaller kite with the power and command of a larger kite.
When you fly the AIRUSH ONE, you will notice that the kite is very lively and you will feel how quickly it pivots around the axis of the strut for immediate response with input from the bar. This pivotal turning makes the AIRUSH ONE an ideal kite in both waves and freeride conditions. Thanks to increased sweep in the LE combined with a proportional increase in diameter of the frame of the kite, relaunch is virtually effortless.

Clocking in around 25-30% lighter than a kite of equal size, along with an increased diameter leading edge and a deep profile, the AIRUSH ONE is incredibly efficient and stable in light wind conditions. With, quite literally, zero back stall, this is a kite that both advanced riders and rank beginners will enjoy, as it is not only forgiving, but steady and predictable as well. In the larger sizes, you will immediately notice the benefits of the turning speed in lighter wind conditions.

The ONE is also extremely easy to tune to your preference with the adjustable bar pressure and bar throw. The 3 wingtip settings allows for a Low, Medium and High bar pressure to meet the your preference.

COMES WITH AIRUSH SMART BAR.

Arxio XR50 Kart engine could be a big hit for future Paramotor Designs

Wankel Rotary engines have been around for many years in some form or another as with all engines there are positives and negatives, BUT with many advances in technology the basic design gets pushed to new limits, costs come down and a new market niche is found. In this case karting. In the past kart engines have proven popular paramotor engines, small, light and fast, but with high service rates.

Lets hope this German built 50hp rotary finds its way into the paramotor market. Quick specs. 17kg – 50cc (294cc rotary) producing 50hp at 8750rpm – 39Nm torque at 7500rpm – max rpm 10400, Electric start – Bing Carb, More information at http://www.woelfle-engineering.com/
