Naish 2014/15 Ride Kite

The Ride is a great kite for everyday kiteboarders looking for ease and simplicity.

The incredibly lightweight, two-strut design provides superior low-end performance due to its fuller center section, creating a drifting effect while maintaining smooth power delivery throughout turning. It also has a slightly flatter arc compared to other kites, which gives it more punch when sheeting-in and provides easy jumping along with that nice “sheet-in-and-go” feel.

The reduced surface area of the wing tip allows the kite to rotate with minimal drag on the water—resulting in a very easy water relaunch.

In addition, fewer struts allow the Ride to inflate faster and pack smaller, so it can travel practically anywhere and be the first kite to get out on the water.

New for this year are re-oriented struts and seams—allowing for better airflow throughout the kite and improved efficiency.

Solid Frame Construction

New HD Radial Segment

Compact C

Every strut is attatched to a frame of heavy duty Dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads The HD Radial Segmented shape uses twice the amount of short linear segments to accurately form the kite's arc, resulting in increased arc defenition and more solid kite. The compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control, and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal relaunch capabilities.i
 

Anti-striction Window

Radial Load Distribution

Octopus nflation System

The wing tip features a flow-through window, which reduces static friction and allows for easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly. 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. 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.
 

Low Drag Wing Tip

Evolutive Profile

Power Foil Canopy

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 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.
