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. While still maintaining its outstanding drift and consistent pull, the leading edge has been slightly reduced in diameter as well as restructuring the wing tip by adding taper to make it turn even faster, an important characteristic when making quick reactions in the waves. This gives the kite a better torque transfer from the tip to the leading edge. 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 and featuring our Shark Teeth trailing edge, keeping the profile of the kite even, making it lighter and more balanced—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.
2018 Torch w/ ESP
The longest running kite in the Naish line, the Torch with ESP has kept freestyle and big-air specialists stoked for over a decade. With input from Red Bull King of the Air Champions and top freestyle kiters, the Torch continues to be refined and tuned to deliver smoother power and precise handling for predictable flying.
For 2019 the focus has been on improving its low end power. Each size has been overhauled, receiving adjustments to the leading edge diameter and profile along with adjustments to the 5th line to ensure that there is maximum power delivery in marginal conditions. Also receiving updates are the removal of the Dacron solid frame panels as the strength of Quad-Tex has proven this feature no longer necessary. The removal of these panels reduces the weight while retaining the rigidity of the canopy. Also enhancing the strength is a new thread material used on the leading edge, which tested off the charts in strength testing. With this you can have confidence your kite will hold strong, beating after beating. Bladder Lock is another new feature, securing the bladder in place and preventing slippage. The ESP setting allows kiters to tune the flying angle for better control and easier depower.
2018 GLOBAL | KITE
Although a great all-around performer, the Global is designed to be ridden fast and hard matching the speed and power of the world’s premiere waves.
The Global carries momentum through flat wave sections or when ridden under-powered. Its double bamboo sandwich deck keeps the board light and strong, giving the rider absolute confidence in even the heaviest situations. Featuring thinned-out rails, a unique bat-tail and increased rocker in the tail, the Global draws out long, smooth turns beautifully and is snappy and responsive when ridden vertically in the pocket. With a wider tail (than previous years) and thruster fin setup, the Global provides excellent grip and stability at speed—allowing riders to hold their lines regardless of wave size or wind conditions—and slices through chop with ease, especially when compared to most directionals.
