AIRUSH DIAMOND TEAM KITEBOARD 2018
135CM x 40CM
The Diamond Team expands the women’s board collection with wakestyle performance in mind. Having taken Bruna Kajiya to her second World Champion title, Airush decided to release this board to elevate female riding.
With over a year of development, the Diamond Pro takes a lot of the components of the hardcore Livewire into a design specifically for lighter riders with narrower outlines and stance, and a softer flex pattern. Featuring a full carbon deck combined with our groundbreaking new Nano Rod Technology, the Diamond Team gives female riders the benefits of perfect torsional responsiveness.
The Diamond Team is an industry leader as the only female board on the market with a .4mm HD Grindrite sintered grind base for insane durability at the beach and at the cable park.
Multi-zone Biotech Core Nano Rod Technology HD Grindrite Base
MULTIZONE BIOTECH CORE
The Airush Multizone Biotech construction is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, for all-round performance and durability.
Nano Rod Technology
The Nano Rod Tech, the biggest innovation in twintips, utilizes 3mm di- ameter carbon rods embedded through the paulownia wood core. This allows the board to have amazing torsional response and strength with- out needing to change core thicknesses and adding excessive layers of composite.
The unique arch formation featured in Nano Rod Tech allows the board to have torsional twist. This torsional twist makes for a smoother ride, increased responsiveness, and improves load and pop while increasing durability in the core by distributing and absorbing the exerted load.
HD Grindrite Base
The HD Grindrite base featured on the Livewire and Diamond Team is our ultra durable multipurpose sintered base. The dual composite bottom sheet is self-lubricating, self-healing and highly abrasion resistant. This Grindrite base makes the Livewire and Diamond Pro the perfect cross- over board for competition wakestyle as well as for sliders and kickers.
FULL CARBON TORSION CONTROL
Airush Full Carbon Torsion Control creates a unique performance advantage developed specifically for our high performance carbon boards. Traditionally carbon fiber boards are incredibly stiff causing a harsh and at times uncomfortable ride. The full Carbon torsion control features biaxial oriented high modulus carbon fiber allowing torsional flexibility while maintaining the fast responsiveness and aggressive pop everyone has come to expect and enjoy from high quality carbon fiber boards.
ABS REINFORCED INSERTS 2.0
No more pulled or broken inserts from hard landings or crashes. New for version 2.0 is added adhesives throughout the insert block for increased durability. Featured on all Airush boards, the ABS Reinforced Inserts 2.0 create the ultimate amount of durability whether riding with boots or straps.
Dura-Tech Response Glass
This technology is the most durable and responsive technology we offer. Built for the more aggressive rider, this Dura-Tech Response construction features our latest Nano Rod Technology and our HD Grindrite sintered grind- base for hardcore wakestyle and freestyle performance.
A: The core thickness runs throughout the boards 3D shape, from tip to tip and across the entire center. This creates our stiffest flex pattern.
B: The Tri-Rocker Channel Tips is designed to create 3 different rockers through the boards’ tips. This allows for maximum control and comfort when landing powered maneuvers.
C: The intermediate tip to width ratio sits in-between the Apex and B the Switch outlines. The slightly pulled in tips on the Livewire allows for more controlled pop when transitioning into complex rotations and also an easy correction on landings.
Freestyle/Wakestyle High rocker
This is the most pronounced rocker line in our range. Designed to soften landings and create extra pop for huge powered maneuvers while creating ultimate control when riding with boots and in overpowered conditions.
FMS FLEX RATING
AIRUSH INTRODUCED FMS RATING 6 YEARS AGO AS THE FIRST BRAND TO QUANTIFY HOW MUCH A TWINTIP FLEXES. INSTEAD OF THE GOOD OLD “FEEL” TEST, WHICH CAN BE VERY DECEPTIVE DUE TO THE IMPACT OF THE LENGTH ON THE OVERALL STIFFNESS, FMS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE BOARD’S LENGTH AND DEFLECTION. A LOWER RATING INDICATES A SOFTER BOARD MORE SUITED TO FREERIDE, WHILE HIGHER RATED STIFFER BOARDS ARE MORE SUITED TO FREESTYLE.
