Effortless and accessible, the Naish Ride is a fast favorite among riders of all levels. Ideal for those looking to progress their skills quickly, the open center section of this lightweight, two-strut design delivers superior low-end performance and maintains smooth power delivery through turns. Easy water relaunch provides added convenience while a slightly flattened arc generates more lift for easy jumping and sheet-in-and-go feel. A consistent performer with incredible control, its versatility will have both new and experienced kiters choosing the Ride as their go-to kite for a wide range of styles.

Making the experience of kite-inflation practically effortless, the all new Airmax Pump is the fastest and easiest on the market to date.
Open top drawstring design = quick packing
Mesh drainage patch at bottom
External loops + adjustable straps = hold pump + extra gear
High Flow Valve:
One-way valve for reduced frictional force + easy inflation + immediate deflation
Lightweight + amazing low-end power
Profile stability at low angle of attack
Center of Effort/Tow Point Alignment:
Stability at different angles of attack for consistent forward drive and lift
Swept Compact C:
The swept compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control, and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal relaunch capabilities.
The profile 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 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 exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure within the struts does not change during turns.
The wing tip features a flow-through window, which reduces static friction and allows for easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly.
Easy access zipper placement:
Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.
Large thermo-molded bumpers wrap around the leading edge, which provide seam protection when landing and launching the kite.
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:åÊ
A double-Velcro flat enclosure ensures that the zipper will not fail under load.
One-Way inflation valves:
All LE inflation valves incorporate a ball system to eliminate air escape when removing the pump nozzle.
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.
