The ideal choice to stoke out dedicated wavekiters, the S26 Slash delivers unmatched drift, a wide wind range and quicker reaction time.
The Naish S26 Slash is the ideal choice to stoke out dedicated wave riders, the Slash delivers unmatched drift and a wide wind range. Establishing itself as Naish’s premier wave kite, the Slash provides incredible down-the-line drift and stable flight. Made to take a beating in heavy surf, you can focus on pushing your limits without having to worry about your gear. With the Slash, you can forget about the kite and become one with the wave.
Providing incredible low-end power and the best down-the-line drift in the Naish line, the bar pressure is light to help fi ght fatigue and keep kiters on the water even longer. Made to take a beating in heavy surf, the Quad-Tex canopy remains the strongest material in the industry, while the leading edge seam features
an exclusive HT+ thread that tested off the charts in strength.
Thanks to the strength that Quad-Tex provides, Dacron strut panels can be removed without a loss of canopy rigidity, allowing for further weight reduction.
The unique Bladder Lock ensures there is no movement in the leading edge bladder or struts when inflating, deflating, crashing or packing.
The Slash has established itself as Naish’s premier wave kite, providing incredible down-the-line drift and stable flight, perfect for park-and-ride style kitesurfing
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 Slash design. The pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the Slash.
Shark Teeth Trailing Edge:
Strategically placed triangular swaths work with Quad-Tex to reduce weight on the kite while minimizing and dispersing canopy flutter.
Naish Slash Depower:
The Naish Slash is a kite that depowers by flying to the edge of the window. Compared to other kites, the Pivot’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.
