Click here for Naish Helilx Review
The Helix returns to the Naish line-up in name only for 2009. The kite has been completely redesigned to clearly set it aside as Naish's top end, all-terrain performance kite. After all their testing, Naish say it's the fastest turning kite they have produced to date and it maintains all the other performance attributes required for an ultimate all-terrain kite.
Taking the 'Wow' factor off the charts would require an outline for a kite that was incredibly quick and nimble with a very direct bar feel. Firstly the number of struts was reduced, significantly lowering the aspect-ratio.
A new bridle platform was developed and the leading edge arc was reworked in the new Geo-Tech generated C shape. Along with the addition of the low drag wing-tip and direct response steering, the result is a super-fast turning, superior gliding kite with great upwind ability, easier water re-launching and a more direct bar feel. Beers all round for the design team then as mission accomplished! Naish are pitching this at intermediate to advanced riders searching for the highest level of all-round performance as well as those looking to course race.
