Naish Torch 6m 2013 with bar and lines
New on the 2013 Torch model
The Naish Torch 2013 delivers the smooth power and aggressive turning that performance C-kite rider‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs demand. The Torch 2012 flies quickly through the air and will depower easily with a quick check of the board edge. Power is delivered smoothly, with depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of the kite‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs ability to fly fast. Whether you are hooked in or unhooked, riding is effortless and precise. The position of the kite‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs struts makes it stiffer in the air, for even more precise handling.
The Torch 2013 is designed for freestyle riders who demand a state-of-the-art, fast flying C-kite with precision response for hooked in and unhooked riding. Weight was reduced on the 2012 Torch by implementing reduced diameter struts, which increases the low-end power and improves handling. Power is delivered smoothly on the Torch, while the depower is similar to that of a bridled kite due to its ability to fly fast through the air.
C-kites still continue to dominate the PKRA tour. Rugged, predictable and reliable, no other C-Kite handles as good as the Naish Torch, which is why more top riders choose it over any other C-kite on the market. The Torch is equally at home winning heats on the world stage, as it is ripping up your home beach. The 2012 Torch features refinements to all elements of the package: new bar, reinforcements, strut positions and a shorter arc.
Whether your goal is to win competitions, or just take your freestyle riding to the next level, the Naish Torch 2012 is your answer. Super smooth, easy handling, hooked-in, unhooked, impressive depower, and fantastic re-launch.
These characteristics allow riders of all levels to take advantage of the Naish Torch unsurpassed performance.
One glimpse, one ride, and you will never look at Freestyle Kiteboarding the same again.
The Naish Torch 2012 uses patented design features including Power Foil Canopy. This increase performance at different levels and creates an amazing step forward in kite performance.í«
With the 2012 Torch, you get a kite that has a crisper feel in the bar and is more responsive to bar input. This makes overpowered riding smoother. The turns are also better, as the kite shoots back up faster in the kite loop, providing extra pull to land without making a hole in the ocean.
With the Naish Torch 2013, you will get a more aggressive and more power throughout the turns than ever before!
This proven airframe design delivers maximum pop and lift. The non-swept outline aligns the center of effort with the tow point for perfect loading through the canopy at all times, resulting in power through the turn.
Naish Kiteboarding Direct Response Steering:
The angle of attack on the wing tips has been increased to keep them more actively engaged. When bar input is added, the wing tip instantly reacts and produces drag, while the opposite wing tip instantly accelerates. This allows the kite to turn quicker.
Low Drag Wing Tip:
This wing tip geometry reduces the overall surface of the non-lifting portion and greatly reduces drag.
The more efficient the lift / drag ratiobecomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air, which allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.
Radial Segmented C-Shape:
Radial Segment C-Shape generates the C-arc using short linear segments to accurately form the kite's arc.
Octopus Inflation System:
Proven, quick and easy singly point inflation system creating uniform pressure in the struts.í«ÌÎ_
The Naish exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure in the struts does not change during turns.
Solid Frame Construction:
Every strut is attached to a frame of heavy duty Dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads
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 construction avoids fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.
Shift System :
The Shift System has the 5th line locked in one direction (at the split of the front line) so that it can only be pulled from the rider's side. This depowers the kite instantly. It also supports the arc, allowing the Torch to have a small leading-edge diameter for superior performance.
Naish Torch C-Kite Water Relaunch >
Rider's input on the shift line and back line makes the kite roll on it's side to launch.
Naish Torch 2012 Depower :
The Naish Torch 2012 is a kite that depowers by flying to the edge of the window. Compared to other kites, the Torch‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs foil profile is thinner, and its Leading Edge diameter is smaller.
These two characteristics allow the kite to fly further forward in the window, and get there fast. This gives it the ability to depower quickly.
Naish Kiteboarding Power Foil Canopy:
The Naish Power Foil Canopy has horizontal seam shaping instead of vertical, which makes the canopy looser than with the Geo-Tech construction resulting in a kite that creates more instant lift.
