Plug & play for ease of use.
Instant depower, large wind range & simple relaunch.
Single strut kite design for gusty or lighter winds.
The One is a lightweight single strut kite that has incredible relaunch capabilities. Made with lightweight components and durable D2 cloth, keeping the One surprisingly light in the air and forgiving at the bar. With a huge wind range the One is a fantastic kite for safe lightwind, and fast progression kiteboarding.
D2 HD Cloth – stronger canopy.
Single strut design to reduce weight.
Extra perimeter reinforcing for use in schools.
Airush One v2 version details
After over a decade of research with single struts designs, the One v2 brings the simplicity and key performance benefits of the Ultra into an amazing Freeride kite perfect for those progressing in the sport.
The One has been designed around a lower aspect ratio platform, resulting in a more plug & play, low end feel through the bar with positive feedback.
The One v2 features a minimalized V2.2 Bridle. The bridle system provides support to the slightly larger leading edge to increase the stability,and wind range of the Delta Hybrid design. The Bridle also keeps steering tension at all times, ideal for entry level and intermediate users requiring full control while riding completely depowered.
Over a decade of single strut development has built our knowledge of what these types of kite can do. At first, this design was synonymous with foiling and lightwind riding but we have been able to expand the performance to meet everyday riders need.
We broke down all the key necessities that new riders are looking for in a kite. Simple, stable, easy, and intuitive is what we focused on while developing the One v2.
The single strut in conjunction with a larger leading edge and swept tips increase the relaunching capabilities of the kite, especially in light wind conditions.
Forgiving at the bar and light in the air, the One has a huge wind range, ideal for lightwind freeride conditions and fast progression on a twintip and foil.
The key to its fun and ease of use is the low aspect ratio, rounded wingtip and deep cord to handle gustier and unpredictable conditions.
By reducing the material used on the One V2, we are able to focus on reinforcing the kite in key strategic areas making it robust for all kiteboarding disciplines.
For the V2, we have introduced the Techno Force D2 canopy material into the range. This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using high tenacity double-coated polyester yarn in a double ripstop configuration. The double coating protects the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage. This ensures the canopy remains as crisp and responsive for as long as possible.
The stable and predictable nature of the kite, along with extra reinforced perimeter, makes
the One ideal for riders at any level.
One V2 Bridle Developement
DK: There is a huge scope to change the feel and performance of any bridled kite through bridle tuning. With Mark very busy with designing the rest of the new range of kites, along with the Starboard x Airush FreeWing program, we are all keen to help out wherever possible, especially with travel being a problem through the entire development season. – I put my hand up to assist with tuning and testing the One v2.
I have recently been developing some software that uses powerful physics-based simulation, combined with goal-based genetic solvers to find just the right alignment of lines and loading for any given kite chassis.
The goal with the One was threefold, we wanted to improve the bar feel and kite handling; shorten the overall length of the bridle to reduce wingtip tangles; and reduce the number of pulleys used.
On the outcome, and the kite that is now in the market, we managed to hit all three goals, which is honestly amazing!
