TKB Review: 2014 AIRUSH Lithium

The Lithium is a moderately low aspect three strut delta hybrid kite offering medium bar pressure and direct steering response with a pivot style turn that generated very predictable power and relaunched well from dead downwind.

TKB Review: 2013 Airush Lithium

The Lithium has been a popular kite for the past few years and remains a fairly low-aspect 3-strut kite targeted as an all-around performer for 2013. Overall the kite is very similar to the 2012 model with some small refinements including flexible trailing edge battens to address trailing edge flutter and bridle adjustments to change the kite's turning speed and bar pressure.
