The Airush Dyneema Load Frame explained.

What is Dyneema?

Dyneema is indisputably the strongest known fibre in the world. On a weight to strength basis, Dyneema is 15 times stronger than steel. Some of its other uses apart from kite construction are protecting an individual or vehicle from threats like an improvised explosive device or shots from an AK47! Dyneema was invented by Albert Pennings in 1963 but made commercially available by DSM in 1990.

Load Frame Technology

The Airush Frame technology uses a framework of heavy duty cloth that reinforces the perimeter of the kite, dispersing load at critical connection points and damage-prone areas, such as the trailing edge and leading edge. This works with the Gradient load wingtips and the innovative Airush load frame to ensure maximum durability.

Load Aligned Construction 

By studying other kites, they have aligned the load frame to disperse forces directly from the center of effort to the wingtips, increasing both durability and response. This alignment considers the movement of the canopy under high impact, supporting the struts and the largest areas of open cloth.

Load Frame

Airush’s next generation Dyneema Load Frame significantly reduces load on the kite canopy. Strength-to-weight ratios for Dyneema are about 40% higher than for Aramid.
