With its light pull, light weight and light input, the Naish S27 Boxer is the ultimate kite for underpowered riding and foiling. The single luff strut and Quad-Tex construction create a lightweight framework that stays in the air easily—even in super light wind. This eliminates any struggle to keep the kite up, so you can keep your focus on foiling. When sheeting out, it quickly offers a lot of depower in a shorter throw. This keeps the kite from pulling too much and feels as if it almost disappears.
These kites now sit deeper in the window, giving you a more solid feel while foiling. The panel count is also optimized by size, meaning all kites in the range have a similar feel due to the larger sizes having more panels and the smaller sizes having fewer. This brings the ultimate balance of structure and weight per size. The Dacron layout has also been redesigned to keep weight down.
Along with a new lightweight/streamlined TLS 500 bridle lines, the Boxer now flies better than ever in light air. The huge size range from 2.8-16.0m means the Boxer has the largest range in the Naish lineup, with the bigger sizes being great light wind twin tip options, the middle sizes being great for all-around light wind riding (surfboard, foil, twin tip) and the smaller sizes excelling at kite foiling.
A point which may be overlooked by most riders, the Boxer shines at light wind and down-the-line wave riding, drifting better than almost anything due to its lightweight single luff strut design.
An outstanding underpowered kite, the Boxer is incredibly easy to relaunch, light to the touch, responsive but gentle. Very easy to sheet in and go, this kite is quick, easy to control and generates power quickly. It’s light and lively feel at the fingertips makes it approachable and forgiving. In short, the Boxer is the proverbial “yes man”—eager to please, easy to control and supportive enough to explore your own style.
It is also ideal for intermediate to advanced riders who want one compact kite for travelling, freeriding, wave riding and snow kiting.
Taking this sought-after C-kite to the next level, the addition of the Quad-Tex canopy makes the Pivot practically indestructible. Already engineered for solid control and handling in strong winds, the addition of Quad-Tex’s 4x-reinforced ripstop and perfectly balanced weave matrix—testing 30% stronger and stiffer than any other around heightens the stability and responsiveness of the Boxer design. The pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the Boxer.
Naish Boxer Depower:
The Naish Boxer is a kite that depowers by flying to the edge of the window. Compared to other kites, the Boxer’s 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.
