- Shark Teeth Trailing Edge
Strategically placed triangular swaths work with Quad-Tex to reduce weight on the kite while minimizing and dispersing canopy flutter.
- Angled Wing Tip
Torsion transmission to entire LE and low drag on water for relaunch
- ABS Bridle
Consistent forward drive + maximum depower + no back-stalling
- Constant Leading Edge Taper
Increased rigidity in wing tip for sharper turning
- Three-strut Design
Lightweight, light wind performance + faster turning
- High Flow Valve
One-way valve for reduced frictional force + easy inflation + immediate deflation
- Swept Arc
The arc generates maximum projected area for power and lift while the swept design provides precision turning, control and ideal relaunch capabilities.
- Lightweight Solid Frame Construction
Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavy-duty dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.
- Evolutive Profile
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 kite’s arc.
- 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.
- 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.
- EASY ACCESS ZIPPER PLACEMENT
Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.
- MOLDED TE REINFORCEMENT
Optimal trailing edge protection with a molded reinforcement at the end of each strut.
- MOLDED BUMPERS
Large thermo-molded bumpers wrap around the leading edge, which provide seam protection when landing and launching the kite.
- ARAMID PATCHES
Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.
- SHARK TEETH TRAILING EDGE
Buffers and disperses canopy flutter to reduce wear and enhance durability
- 2-PIECE LEADING EDGE
This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.
- DEFLATE VALVE DOUBLE VELCRO CLOSURE
The deflate valve has a double-Velcro closure design to ensure closure during impact.
- REINFORCED STRUT ZIPPERS
A double-Velcro flat enclosure ensures that the zipper will not fail under load.
- VERTICAL SEAM STRUTS
A reduction in the number of pieces used in the struts means more precision in defining the canopy profile. The seams are also reinforced with an extra layer of webbing, and double zigzag stitches to avoid breakage.
- HIGH FLOW VALVE
One-way valve for reduced frictional force, easy inflation and immediate deflation.
