Naish 2014/15 Draft Kite

The Draft is a high-performance, freeride kite that generates powerful lift for boosting big airs and long, gliding jumps.

It features a state-of-the-art airfoil design that excels at hooked-in riding, upwind performance and competitive speed. The Draft’s reduced leading edge taper adds rigidity to the wing tip—placing the axis of rotation close to the center of the kite— resulting in sharp turning and precise bar feel.

The five struts on the 7, 9, 10.5, and 12 sizes optimize performance and increase control in strong winds, while the three struts on the 14 and 17 sizes are ideal for light wind performance, smooth power delivery, and faster turning.

This year, the wing tip shape has been changed in order to provide a more direct bar feel and quicker turning. And the bridles have been refined to provide faster turning, more aggressive jumps and bigger airs.

Swept Arc

Radial Load Distribution

Lightweight Solid Frame Construction

The arc generates maximum projected area for power and lift while the swept design provides precision turning, control and ideal relaunch capabilities. All wing tips are designed with seams running parallel to the load generated by the flying lines. These seams carry most of the load and spread it higher into the canopy. This design helps prevent fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area. Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavy-duty dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.

Octopus Inflation System

Low Drag Wing Tip

Radial Segmented Arc

This proven, quick, and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. Naish’s exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure within the struts does not change during turns

This wing tip geometry decreases the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, greatly reducing drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.

The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to a ccurately form the kite’s arc.


Evolutive Profile

Power Foil Canopy


The profile’s depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling. The center sections generate power thanks to a deeper profile, while the flatter profile in the tips minimizes drag and allows faster turning.

The power foil canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.
