With its proven performance legacy, the Naish Torch is the perfect choice of kite for riders looking for a ride equally at home on the competition circuit as it is when riding unhooked in the waves. A benchmark in the Ckite family, the Torch is powerful through turns, has an unmatched bar feel and 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 and the Shift control system allows easy water relaunch and arc support capabilities. Kevin Langeree stormed his way to the PKRA world title in '09 using the Torch and, for 2011, the kite looks set to continue to perform to the highest standards with polished refinements for those wanting to go to the next level.
SIZES: 14, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 and 5m
For riders who demand performance over the broadest range of conditions, the Bolt incorporates the newest design DNA for incredible stability, direct bar feel, fast turning, and easy jumping. Built on Naish's Sigma foundation and, featuring the new evolution profile, the Bolt is power-oriented in the large sizes and control-focused in the smaller ones. Geo-Tech construction maintains the designed shape even in the gustiest conditions and ensures a long lasting kite. Riders looking for an all-round kite with superior stability will feel right at home with the Bolt, which is also LWR compatible.
SIZES: 16, 14, 12, 10.5, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 and 3m
