Naish Pivot Kite test review – 7, 8 and 9m

“This is a kite that stands out very uniquely in a sea of hybrid all-rounders, thanks to its instant power combined with almost total depower.”

Tested by Jim Gaunt and Kyle Cabano

FULL REVIEW EXTRACT – SHEETING:

We’re going to jump straight into the standout aspect of the Pivot and that’s the sheeting throw which provides a massive, usable wind range. It’s huge. Very few kites can depower that much at full sheeting and then deliver so much power when you sheet in; all the while maintaining beautifully smooth incremental power changes throughout that entire bar throw.
