As we mentioned yesterday regarding the topic of Join the Movement - Naish Kiteboarding 2017, the content of videos presenting Naish Kiteboarding 2017 products was revealed. Today we are presenting hot new stuff from Naish in a more detailed way. Quad-Tex - the strongest canopy material ever, Torque Control Systems and many more - everyone will find something to suit themselves. Join the Movement - Welcome to 2017 Naturally driven to shake things up, innovation is in our DNA and the 2017 season does not disappoint. The new line-up features Quad-Tex, the strongest canopy material ever made; function-rich Torque Control Systems; uber-intuitive kites; performance-enhanced boards and bindings so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing them. We’re always asking “how high, how fast, how far . . .” and we feed that insatiable curiosity by pushing the boundaries. 2017 marks the next era in kiting. Are you ready to get on board? 1). Naish Kiteboarding 2017 Gear Lineup Quad-Tex A collaboration between Teijin and Naish, Quad-Tex is 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 to the optimal strength-to-weight ratio for heavy-duty rip protection. Quad-Tex consistently outperforms 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. Learn More About Quad-Tex Pivot: Freeride/Wave Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 Predictable power development, direct bar feel, intuitive steering and plenty of “sheet-in-and-go” are just a few characteristics that make the Pivot one of the most sought-after kites on the market. Adapting to a wide variety of wind and wave conditions, this kite features a medium aspect ratio for substantial low-end power, easy jumping and great upwind performance. Dynamic and responsive, it pivots quickly and easily on a small axis of rotation—with minimal power increase through turns—for super-smooth carving through waves and enhanced control going into and out of kiteloops. Now constructed with Quad-Tex—the most advanced kite canopy material in existence—the Pivot is livelier and more responsive than ever. The stronger, stiffer fabric transfers energy more directly putting riders in complete control. Easy-handling, well-rounded and incredibly versatile, it’s clear to see how the Pivot has become the all-around choice for everyone, everywhere. View the Pivot Slash: Pure Wave/Strapless Sizes: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Developed with elite riders on the crest of the most legendary waves in the world—and tested to perform in even the most sloppy, onshore conditions—the Slash offers a smooth, yet responsive experience that adapts easily to a diversity of surf and trick riding. Born from the DNA of the renowned Pivot, the Slash features a lower aspect ratio and higher, wider wingtips for a compact overall outline which makes it easy to turn quickly and change direction. The swept wing tip delivers unmatched drifting ability, light bar pressure and quick relaunch. Perfectly balanced, the bridles and geometry are tuned to produce an incredibly stable shape and intuitive performance. Constructed with Quad-Tex—a revolutionary new 4x-reinforced ripstop that is 30% stronger and stiffer than any other kite canopy material on the market—the Slash is, easily, one of the strongest kites around. Intuitive, durable, dynamic. . . the Slash puts you in control to rip the most out of your session. View the Slash Torch with ESP: Pro Performance/Freestyle Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 From design and testing to incremental perfecting, the Torch is a product of years of collaboration with the top kiters in the world in the most demanding of conditions. Flown year after year on the world tour—consistently dominating the King of the Air—this kite has pushed the boundaries of what was ever conceived possible. Offering smooth power delivery, with depower similar to that of a bridled kite, the Torch delivers precision response for hooked and unhooked riding. Now available to a broader skillset, less experienced kiters can still ride like Jesse Richman, or Kevin Langeree with the Torch’s new ESP setting, which allows riders to adjust the depower for more forgiving controls with all the performance. Taking this sought-after C-kite to the next level, the addition of the Quad-Tex canopy makes this commanding kite practically indestructible. Already engineered for solid control and handling in strong winds, the addition of Quad-Tex’s 4x-reinforced ripstop and perfectly balanced weave matrix—testing 30% stronger and stiffer than any other around—heightens the stability and responsiveness of the Torch design. The pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the Torch. View the Torch with ESP Torque Control System The AFNOR* certified Torque Control Systems offer a function-rich design with the all-new 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—keeping you secure while freeing you up to focus on what you love.
