Pro Performance Freestyle 

From design and testing to incremental perfecting, the Torch is a product of years of collaboration with the top kiters in the world in the most demanding conditions. Flown year after year on the world tour—consistently dominating the King of the Air—this kite has pushed the boundaries of what was ever conceived possible. 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 Jesse Richman, or Kevin Langeree 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.

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.

ESP 

Greater angle of attack control for more instant depower

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.

Evolutive Profile 

The profile’s depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling. The center sections generate power thanks to a deeper profile, while the flatter profile in the tips minimizes drag and allows faster turning.

Radial Segmented Arc 

The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to a ccurately form the kite’s arc.

Octopus Inflation System 

This proven, quick, and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. Naish’s exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure within the struts does not change during turns.

Low-V, 5-line Platform 

Kite flies more open for more direct bar feel & heightened stability
