For those who are interested in finding out more about the 2022 Airush product range, here are a couple of videos from the annual Board Sports Expo AWSI event (Association of Wind and Watersports Industries) in Hood River, Oregon USA.

Do you know if the hookipa is similar to the SLS material of duotone or the allula? As challenge is a provider of duotone too apparently I assume it's similar to SLS.
It will be interesting to see what kind of weight gain we can expect from it.

Hi Loris, I don't believe I'm allowed to share this info just yet. I'm actually surprised they showed that kite during the AWSI event. There should be a public release of the Ultra Team kite with all the specs in a couple of weeks.

After binging on loads of video over the weekend from the annual AWSI event at Hood River, this was the most interesting takeout:www.challengesailcloth.com/hookipa

The Tkb interviewer said he'd been to an AWSI seminar on the new material from Challenge Sailcloth... I wish that seminar had been shared to the masses!

It would be great to know strength, weight, cost, durability, stiffness, how much extra PSI in leading edge without the sales pitch/marketing hype...

Looks like my 2015 kites will get upgraded next season to Aluula or Hookipa. How exotic!

Hey Cbulota!

Very excited about the new airush hookipa, team ultra and nitro wing ding. Any idea how long before they hit the market in Oz?

Giving you a date would be pure speculation at this stage as production has not yet started for those. Based on my discussions with Airush I would say absolute best case scenario we would get those in Australia around Feb 2022. There are so many factors that could delay this much further.

We'll be placing a small order for some Ultra Team kites as soon as they become available to order. Anyone who wishes to place an order for the Ultra Team or Nitro Wing is welcome to contact us: www.kitebud.com.au/contact-us/

Thanks

Damn! Just at the end of summer! Oh well all good things are worth waiting for.

I haven't even seen any official info on the new products so I know I am frothing out a bit early!

An 8m ultra team in cross off solid down the line waves, that would be a new experience in drift!
