The Triad is an all-around freeride machine. This kite handles power extremely well, and is a reliable kite for smooth, predictable jumps, and forgiving steering. Its ease of control inspires confidence and makes it a great jumping kite giving even the Pivot a run for its money in most conditions. This three-strut kite has a center luff strut similar to the Boxer and provides a linear and forgiving power band with great sheet-in-and-go power. For anyone searching for a kite that does everything, the Triad is a great choice for you.
The Hero continues to push performance boundaries for a user-friendly board, featuring a wider shape to help with low wind glide and provides a stable platform to learn and progress on. Its flex pattern and rocker gives the rider a smooth ride through chop and easy landings. Don’t be fooled by the Hero’s beginner-friendly characteristics, it is these traits that make it the perfect board to learn tricks on and get out in a wide range of conditions. The full-length single concave provides speed and hold, while its medium freeride rocker gives you progressive edging and release. The Hero has morphed itself into a user-friendly board loved by riders of all levels, not to be underestimated in the freeride realm.
The Control Bar-
Naish has reimagined how riders connect to their kite. The Torque 2 bar takes the proven design of the original version and refines it with new grips and floaters, new PU-coated trim lines which feel smoother on your hands and reduce wear, a new slimmer one-piece trim cleat, and a new stopper ball to limit release throw.
The safety system is a massive jump forward in quick-release technology. Starting with a shortened overall length, the release stroke has been increased and the release collar has a more ergonomic shape, making it virtually impossible to accidentally release. When you do decide to release, it’s easy to re-connect the loop — just click it together like a seat belt so you can quickly put your kite back together in the water instead of swimming home.
