Description

Freeride/Wave

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.

The Pivot continues its subtle evolution with an adapted profile, making it more balanced, reliable and predictable. Incorporating the Shark Teeth feature on the trailing edge gives the Pivot an even more aerodynamic profile. This makes the Pivot lighter while keeping it forgiving, with outstanding low-end power and direct bar feel.

Easy-handling, well-rounded and incredibly versatile, it’s clear to see how the Pivot has become the all-around choice.

Technology

  • 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.

Kite Construction

  • 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.
