DetailsWhilst being a BRILLIANT kite for learning and progressing still, this new One is also damn good for foiling. Ok, it's not exactly the Ultra - slightly heavier, and slightly fuller, sitting a bit further back in the window, so not quite as fast and athletic, but it's damn close. In fact, I wager the extra grunt on tap actually makes foiling easier for beginners, whilst the total depower and light wind performance is right up there with the Ultra.
We are offering it with the Switch Progression 2019 (a much slicker version of the Vox) and the 2019 Switch Core - our premium freeride board (think Monk equivalent). The Teamharness is also included - a top of the line harness than many advanced riders still use. I think the price is excellent, certainly, the kit IS excellent. Furthermore, you are selling it from the point of view that it's a super easy kite to learn and progress with, yet in a year's time, you will be foiling on it. Let's face it - most keen riders now also foil too. It's a big part of our landscape when you talk through the DNA of our sport.The One Progression and the Switch Progression package.

The One Progression kite
The One Progression is a new kite for 2020 that the technology and draws on the sucess of the Airush Ultra. This one strut Ultra platform has gained a huge following in the kiting industry. It offers a new performance level for foiling and medium power freeride. In a sport obsessed by big air the Ultra, and this lithium progression sibling reminds high level riders just how much agility, fun and feedback has been lost in the pursuit of extreme power handling.
With regard to your first few sessions, the One progression is also used by schools. Extremely stable overhead, it's progressive, easy to re-start and has huge amounts of depower. Handling is direct and agile without being nervous or unpredictable. After you master the One, you may be tempted to upgrade to something destined for more agressive riding style as your tastes diversify, but the Lithium one, like the Ultra, has a trick up it's sleeve. It is a perfect kite for foiling.
There are few recreational riders who do not foil these days, it is a whole new world for less windy days and ensures that you get a lot more out of the year when you cant pick and choose your conditions. The light wind ability, agility, stability and handling of the One is perfect for foiling, so it will stay in your quiver for a long time.
Sizes; 8, 9, 10, 12, 14m

The Progression bar

The bar is supplied with the safety leash to attach to your harness.
Team Waist Harness;
This package is also supplied with the Airush team harness. It has a very impressive blend of support and comfort using an ergonomic load plate with a 3D moulded internal and external construction. A full neoprene soft edge and neoprene inner belt maximises the comfort of the harness while the lumbar support battens stiffen the harness vertically, allowing maximum freedom of movement while riding. This is essential in providing the support your spine needs for sustained use, whilst not being uncomfortable around the edges of the harness. A dual stage belt system allows the rider to set the level of belt support by adjusting or bypassing the secondary belt if preferred. The T Lock spreader bar relaease is easy to engage due to the compact hook design, with a rotating clip holding the hook in place to prevent accidental releases. It's a top of the line harness, and will not need replacing for an advanced model at any point.
The package also comes with a large capacity pump, with multple nozzles for this and any future kites that use different systems.
The only thing you will need that are not supplied in this kit is a wetsuit. Boots perhaps if you are riding somewhere rocky, and a helmet and an impact vest if wish to be cautious. Board leashes are a choice if you are not happy with your skill at upwind body dragging, but you may want to speak to your instructor about this.
This complete package is designed to get you on the water at a fantastic price with top of the line quality, and a performance that will maximise your learning curve, whilst still being relevant to your advanced wave and foil riding in the future.
