2016/17 Naish Ride Kitesurfing Kite

Available Sizes: 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 11m, 14m

All-around Freeride 

Effortless and accessible, the Naish Ride is a fast favorite among riders of all levels. Ideal for those looking to progress their skills quickly, the open center section of this lightweight, two-strut design delivers superior low-end performance and maintains smooth power delivery through turns. Easy water relaunch provides added convenience while a slightly flattened arc generates more lift for easy jumping and “sheet-in-and-go” feel. A consistent performer with incredible control, its versatility will have both new and experienced kiters choosing the Ride as their “go-to” kite for a wide range of styles.

Swept Compact C 

The swept compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control, and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal relaunch capabilities.

Lightweight Solid Frame Construction 

Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavy-duty dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.

NEW Tough Tips 

Added reinforcement on the wing tip area spreads the heavy load perfectly throughout the entire canopy of the kite.

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 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.

Low Drag Wing Tip 

This wing tip geometry decreases the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, greatly reducing drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.

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.

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 design helps prevent fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.

Anti-stiction Window 

The wing tip features a flow-through window, which reduces static friction and allows for easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly.
