The veteran kite in the Naish line, the Naish S26 Torch has continually kept freestyle and big-air specialists stoked for more than a decade. The only kite that has won King of the Air, Freestyle World Championships and the Kite Park League World Title, the Torch remains tried and true in quality and performance.
This year’s model has been improved and fine-tuned to deliver smoother power and precise handling for predictable flying. Ideal for freestyle, the Torch creates slack after loading, making handle passes a breeze. Open up a new world in the park with the Torch’s top-notch stability and drift. For those ready to take kiting to the next level - grab a Torch.
With input from Red Bull King of the Air Champions and top freestyle kiters, the Torch continues to be refined and tuned to deliver smoother power and precise handling for predictable fl ying. Adjustments to the leading edge and 5th line deliver marked improvements in low end power, ensuring maximum power delivery in
The tension in the whole canopy has been fine tuned by adding a seam that spreads the back line tension further towards the center of the kite for an even more powerful and balanced kite as well as the new OnePoint and SureLock Infl ation System.The strength and rigidity of Quad-Tex contributes to overall weight reduction, enabling our designers to remove components that are no longer necessary. HT Plus—the leading edge thread reinforcement—continues to support the strength of our kites, ensuring the leading edge holds strong, beating after beating. Last, but not least, the ESP setting allows kiters to tune the fl ying angle for better control and easier depower.
Perhaps the ultimate, fastest-flying C-kite around, the Torch delivers precision response for hooked and unhooked riding. Its ESP setting allows riders to adjust the depower for more forgiving control while maintaining performance.
Offering smooth power delivery, with depower similar to that of a bridled kite, the Torch delivers precision response for hooked and unhooked riding.
Now available to a broader skillset, less experienced kiters can still ride like the pro's with the Torch’s new ESP setting, which allows riders to adjust the depower to have more forgiving control with all the performance.
Taking this sought-after C-kite to the next level, the addition of the Quad-Tex canopy makes the Torch 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 Torch design. The pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the Torch.
Naish Torch Depower:
The Naish Torch ESP is a kite that depowers by flying to the edge of the window. Compared to other kites, the Torch’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.
