TorchThe worlds leading C-kite
Design aim: Riders looking for power through the turns, unmatched bar feel in a fast-flying kite.
The world views the Torch as the benchmark in C-kites. Its proven legacy of performance makes it the perfect choice for riders looking for a kite that is equally at home on the competition circuit, or when riding unhooked in the waves.
The Torch has depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of its ability to fly quickly to the edge of the window. The smooth power delivery and easy handling make hooked or unhooked riding effortless.
The Shift Control System allows easy water relaunch and arc support.
Kevin Langeree marched to the top of the podium and earned the World Championship Title using the Torch. For 2011, the Torch continues its unsurpassed performance with polished refinements that will take all riders to the next level.

Design aim: Riders looking for simple, no-fuss perfor-mance. The Park is a performance-focused kite con-densed into an easy, simple package.
The Parks three-strut design is stable and responsive. This configuration, combined with a powerful profile and full outline gives the Park the consistent pull of a C type kite and the power control of a swept kite.
The swept leading edge positions the wingtips behind the center of the kite, which gives the kite easy relaunch capabilities and maximizes depower.
The do everything nature of the Park opens up a huge range of performance options for the rider. It is the perfect tool whether you are focusing on sticking that handle-pass rotation, bashing the lip, or maximizing your freeride time on the water.
The Park is LWR compatible.

Versatile Stable PredictableBolt
Design aim: Riders looking for an all around kite with superior stability.
The Bolt is built on our Sigma foundation to provide stability, fast turning, and solid bar feel. Featuring the new Evolutive Profile, the Bolt is power-oriented in the large sizes and control-focused in the smaller sizes.
The Geo-Tech construction maintains the designed shape even in the gustiest conditions and ensures
a long lasting kite. The Bolt is for riders who demand performance over the broadest range of conditions. It incorporates the newest design DNA for incredible stability, direct bar feel, fast turning, and easy jumping. The Bolt is LWR compatible.

Design aim: All-terrain riders who seek effortless water relaunch and added low-end lift.
Totally re-engineered, the all new Charger continues its pedigree of all terrain performance with added focus on stability and range of use.
Naish has implemented a new outline that is both fast turning and very stable. Added sweep in the wingtips increases depower and improves water relaunch capa-bilities.
The 5 struts frame provides the needed support to keep the Charger incredibly stable through a wide wind range.
The Charger is the ideal choice for riders who demand a fast, highly stable kite with superior upwind ability.
The Charger is LWR compatible.

Kite TechnologyKite Outlines
swept Compact C C-shape
Power Foil Canopy
evolutive Profileradial segmented C-shape
The Sigma Outline is an aerodynamic bird-in-flight shape that moves much of the center canopy area behind the tow point, resulting in a kite that has unmatched stability even at an extremely low angle of attack. The Sigma Outline also provides a linear power band and bar pressure, with very easy water relaunch.
Blending the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power control and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, the Swept Compact C-shape also provides ideal relaunch capabilities.
This proven airframe design delivers maximum pop and lift. The non-swept outline aligns the cen-ter of effort with the tow point for perfect loading through the canopy at all times resulting in power through the turn.
The curved leading edge and swept tips offer a unique blend of auto-relaunch and excellent de-power. These kites are quick turning at most bar positions, which provides for excellent control.
The Power Foil Canopy has hori-zontal seam shaping instead of vertical, which makes the canopy looser than with Geo Tech con-struction. The result is a kite that creates more instant lift.
The profiles depth and shape evolves along the airfoil. The cen-ter sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
Radial Segment C-Shape gener-ates the C-arc using short linear segments to accurately form the kites arc.
Power Foil canopy in the center of the kite for increased power. Geo-Tech is used on the lower arc where angle of attack on the foil is low. This provides superior sta-bility, less drag and solid feel in the air.
Straight segments along the lead-ing edge provide constant tension on the canopy. This forms per-fect foil definition. It maintains a stable foil profile at any flying angle. The result is an unbeliev-ably smooth and stable kite with superior control.
