NEW Reduced Leading Edge Taper
Increased rigidity in wing tip for sharper turning.
Reduced Diameter Struts
Improves low-end power & handling + reduces weight
Static Bridle Platform
More precise bar feel + keeps kite stable & moving forward
Five Struts on the 7, 9, 10.5, 12
Control for windward performance in higher winds
Three Struts on the 14 & 17
Lightweight, light wind performance + faster turning
Swept Open C
The swept open C-shape maximizes the lift of the C-kite airframe. Its open arc delivers more power on demand than other kites of the same size and provides unmatched upwind performance. The swept profile balances the kite for better turning.
Power Foil Canopy
The power foil canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.
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.
Radial Segmented Arc
The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to accurately form the
Low Drag Wing Tip
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.
Octopus Inflation System
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.
NEW Lightweight Solid Frame Construction
Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavyduty
dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear
and heavy loads.
Radial Load Distribution
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.
