2020 IS HERE – FOILS – KITES – BOARDS
“Measured in the seconds shooting through an epic barrel; in the minutes shaved off your fastest downwinder; or in the hours taken
to finally pull off the next big trick—no matter how diverse, how thrilling, or how fleeting, each significant experience comes down
to one unforgettable moment. Whatever the reason, whatever the impulse, wherever the water takes you…this is your moment.
Make it extraordinary.”  Robby Naish 2019

2020 PIVOT

FREERIDE - WAVE

Who is it for?
Kiter’s seeking ultimate versatility & high performance characteristics.

What’s it do?
EVERYTHING! Tight “pivot-y” turns, super easy to jump, extremely forgiving, superior lowend & impressive highwind control.

Why is it unique?
The first dedicated freeride kite that became the kite of choice of Kevin Langeree that won him 2018 Red Bull King of the Air.

What’s new?
This year we have fine tuned the tension in the whole canopy by adding a seam that spreads the back line tension further towards the center of the kite for an even more powerful and balanced kite as well as the new OnePoint and SureLock Inflation System.

2 times winner of Red Bull King of the Air, the Pivot is direct, versatile and efficient, maintaining its standout performer status in the Naish kite line. Perfect for both novice and professional kiters alike, the Pivot provides plenty of sheet-in-and-go, predictable power, direct bar pressure, easy jumping and control in the air. The superior choice for versatile performance, the Pivot maintains a large wind range, proving dynamic and responsive in everything from waves to flat water.

It has earned an impressive reputation for its intuitive steering and tight, quick axis of rotation and this new generation continues to push its capabilities even further. With the Quad-Tex material, we have managed to remove heavy dacron panels along the struts—reducing weight while retaining canopy rigidity. The leading edge seam is made with our exclusive thread that has tested off the charts in overall strength. The Pivot also comes with our exclusive Bladder Lock, which eliminates the risk of bladder movement in the leading edge and struts to ensure they stay in place when inflating, deflating, crashing or  packing.

While the Pivot has received various tweaks and improvements that enhance the performance characteristics, it continues to stay true to its loyal following and remain as one of the most sought after kites worldwide.

2020 SLASH

PURE WAVE STRAPLESS

Who is it for?
Dedicated surfers & strapless kiters.

What’s it do?
Drifts amazingly in front of you while riding a wave, it also offers quick steering in order to be positioned in an instant and linear power delivery.

Why is it unique?
Tapered wing tips provide precision steering and it is also tuned to sit & stay further back in the window.

What’s new?
This year we have fine tuned the tension in the whole canopy by adding a seam that spreads the back line tension further towards the center of the kite for an even more powerful and balanced kite as well as the new OnePoint and SureLock Inflation System.

The ideal choice to stoke out dedicated wavekiters, the 2020 Slash delivers unmatched drift, a wide wind range and quicker reaction time.

The leading edge bladder is tapered through the wingtip, creating a small diameter for fast turning speed and response. Providing incredible low-end power and the best down-the-line drift in the Naish line, the bar pressure is light to help fight fatigue and keep kiters on the water even longer. Made to take a beating in heavy surf, the Quad-Tex canopy remains the strongest material in the industry, while the leading edge seam features our exclusive HT+ thread that tested off the charts in strength. Thanks to the strength that Quad-Tex provides, Dacron strut panels can be removed without a loss of canopy rigidity, allowing for further weight reduction. Our unique Bladder Lock ensures there is no movement in the leading edge bladder or struts when inflating, deflating, crashing or packing.

The Slash has established itself as Naish’s premier wave kite, providing incredible down-the-line drift and stable flight, perfect for park-and-ride style kitesurfing.

2020 DASH

FREESTYLE FREERIDE

WHO’S IT FOR?
Advanced kiters looking for a fast and engaging kite.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Flies and turns fast thanks to the C-shape, small leading edge, and relatively flat profile & size of the wingtip. This also makes the Dash great for kite loops (finishes the turn really well) and jumps high by creating an immediate and strong pull at the start delivering a powerful and “punchy” feel.

WHAT’S NEW?
Increased low end power thanks to a new bridle geometry.

WHY IS IT UNIQUE?
Compared to the Pivot, the Dash is more engaging, more “punchy” and turns faster. It also creates more drive when unhooked. Its power and forward flying ability delivers similar performance to the Torch—creating good pop and slack for kiters that like to ride unhooked.

Advanced kiters looking for a fast and powerful kite will be stoked on the Dash. Simply put, this kite flies fast, turns fast and has a powerful and “punchy” feel. The C-shape, small leading edge and relatively flat profile create strong pull immediately, which is a huge benefit for riders looking to jump high. The Dash not only turns fast, it completes them really nicely too. Anyone looking to pull off a killer kite loop will benefit from its superior turning performance. This newest model features a new bridle geometry creating much better low end for more consistent power in gusty conditions. Those looking to ride unhooked will find its forward flying ability and power to perform similar to a Torch, as it offers great pop and slack.

WHAT’S NEW
Reduced Weight = Quad-Tex enables the removal of the dacron reinforcement layer at
each strut, resulting in a further reduction in overall weight
Reduced Leading Edge Diameter = Produces even faster turning and explosive pull for
higher jumps and a more dynamic ride

2020 TRIAD

ALL AROUND FREERIDE

WHO’S IT FOR?
Easy to control, the Triad is great for kiters looking for a smooth-flying, easy-to-handle kite or anyone that wants to improve their skills.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Triad has a plethora of characteristics that make it ideal for your average kiter. Forgiving control, easy handling, great sheet-in-and-go with smooth power delivery, stable and neutral when not engaged, effortless water relaunch and amazing wing stability (when resting on the water) are a handful of these characteristics.

WHY IS IT UNIQUE?
This 3-strut platform makes it the easiest, most versatile kite around.

The new Triad, is much more than an evolution of the Ride, it’s been redesigned and re-engineered. We’ve taken the original iconic user-friendly design and developed it further to be even more versatile and provide a whole new riding experience. This new, three-strut frame provides greater stability. The center luff strut creates great low end power, allowing the kite to drift and providing great sheet-in-and-go. The stiffer center also increases the Triad’s wind range, providing improved handling in stronger winds and gusty conditions. It also allows us to move the two outer struts lower for a more direct bar feel and improved turning ability. Its low aspect ratio and gradual curve in the wingtip produce smooth turns and very predictable flying. This is perfect for anyone who prefers steady movements over a more punchy kite. Mistakes are minimal with the Triad, so no need to worry if you oversheet it, dive it too hard, or overfly your kite. It also has great wing stability when resting on the water—so you have plenty of time to make adjustments before relaunching. Smooth-flying, stable and forgiving, the Triad gives riders plenty of time to react and plenty of room to grow, so you’re in complete control at all times. From complete beginners, to kiters looking to improve, to those seeking an easy-riding experience, anyone looking for an easy to control kite will enjoy the Triad.

2020 BOXER

ALL AROUND FREERIDE & FOILING

WHO’S IT FOR?
Any rider looking to go out with a smaller kite than anyone else in marginal conditions for underpowered riding and foiling.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Flies and generates power in the lightest wind and has great bar feel and turning speed.

WHAT’S NEW?
Streamlined construction is lighter weight.

WHY IS IT UNIQUE?
Lightest kite on the market, and therefore exceptionally efficient in marginal conditions Amazing water relaunch in marginal conditions.

With its light pull, light weight and light input, the Boxer is the ultimate kite for underpowered riding and foiling. The single luff strut and Quad-Tex construction create a lightweight framework that stays in the air easily—even in super light wind. This eliminates any struggle to keep the kite up, so you can keep your focus on foiling. When sheeting out, it quickly offers a lot of depower in a shorter throw. This keeps the kite from pulling too much and feels as if it almost disappears. Its lightweight load pulls more through the bar than through the harness, for more direct steering. And because it’s so responsive to lighter inputs, lighter riders and foilers can easily make micro-adjustments without being thrown off-balance. This year we worked on making the kite even lighter. Each size has saved up to 280 g, making the boxer the lightest kite on the market. All these precious grams saved translate to weight the wind does not need to carry anymore and creates a more efficient kite for your session. Available in sizes as small as 2.8 meters, the Boxer is built for foiling. It’s such a great all-around performer that larger sizes do really well during lightwind twin tip riding too! If you’re foiling, riding underpowered, or have lighter input, the Boxer will let you push the boundaries of light wind.

WHAT’S NEW
Reduced Weight = Quad-Tex enables the removal of the dacron reinforcement layer at
each strut, resulting in a further reduction in overall weight

FOILDBOARDS 2019

CONTROL BARS 2020

The Torque Control Systems offer a function-rich design with the Torque Loop—the most advanced trim line system to date with a ball bearing swivel that keeps lines tangle-free. Extremely easy to release and reload, the patented Naish push-away quick release mechanism makes for consistently smooth operation regardless of line tension.

QUAD-TEX

A collaboration between Teijin and Naish, Quad-Tex continues its reign as the strongest, most responsive kite canopy material on the market. Taking a “strength-first” approach, Quad-Tex is constructed with a matrix of 4x-reinforced ripstop, which is balanced for the optimal strength-to-weight ratio for heavy-duty rip protection. Quad-Tex continues to outperform leading canopy materials, testing over 30% stronger with the least elongation and stretch. The result is a more rigid, responsive kite that you can count on, day in and day out.

2020 KITEBOARDS

REEL LEASH – Still the best alternative for a board leash. Eliminates the danger of the board catapulting toward the kiter. Leash webbing stays coiled away in the housing and out of the way. Reel Leash won’t drag in the water, wrap around the kiter or board, or get caught between toes. SEASPECS – Polarised Polycarbonate, 100% UVA & UVB protection. Secure strap system keeps Seaspecs in place. Seaspecs float in the ocean Protective microfi bre bag.
