State-of-the-art C-kite for competition freestyle, power freeriding and unhooked waveriding.

The Torch 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’s ability to fly fast. Whether you are hooked in or unhooked, riding is effortless and precise. The position of the kite’s struts makes it stiffer in the air, for even more precise handling.

The Torch is equally at home winning heats on the world stage as it is ripping up your home beach.

Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14

Key Features:
  • Precise bar feel
  • Unmatched unhooked qualities
  • Fast response flying
  • Solid power through the turns
  • Kite of choice for pro riders

New On The Torch

1. Bigger LE diameter on sizes 5 to 8:

  • Reduced LE torsion
  • Slower turning speed

2. 3D LE definition on sizes 9 to 14:
  • Allows for easier LE torsion
  • Faster turning speed

3. Smaller diameter and shorter control bar:
  • Better handling and a forgiving feel


Technology

  • C-Shape: 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.
  • Power Foil Canopy: The Power Foil Canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.
  • Evolutive Profile: The profile’s depth and shape evolves along B-B the airfoil. The center sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
  • Radial Segmented C-Shape: The Radial Segmented C-shape generates the C-arc using short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s arc.
  • 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.
  • Octopus Inflation System: This proven, quick and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. 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 Platform: 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.

Construction

From bladders to stitching, every Naish kite has been meticulously checked to pass the highest quality control in the industry. Every detail is scrutinized before the kite leaves the factory, to produce a product you can trust.

  • Easy access zipper placement: Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.
  • Aramid Patches: Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.
  • Molded TE reiforcement: Optimal trailing edge protection with a molded reinforcement at the end of each strut.
  • Molded bumpers: Large thermo-molded bumpers wrap around the leading edge, which provide seam protection when landing and launching the kite.
  • 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.
  • 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: 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.
  • Inflation pressure guage: All Naish pumps include a built-in inflation pressure gauge. This provides optimum bladder pressure to maximize the kite’s performance.
