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. Year after year, the Torch with ESP continues to set the bar as the pinnacle of freestyle performance and the 2019 model further strengthens its legacy.
