2016/17 Naish Trip Kitesurfing Kite



2016/17 Naish Trip Kitesurfing Kite

Available Sizes: 8m, 10m, 12m

Foil/Underpowered Riding

Low wind; no problem! The Naish Trip excels in underpowered conditions. Perfect for dedicated intermediate-to-advanced riders, the incredibly lightweight, strutless design delivers the wind range of a larger kite while retaining the fast, precision turning of a smaller kite. An ideal fit for foiling, the Trip’s responsive depower and light weight—compared to other kites of this size—supports seamless transitions for a smooth ride.

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.

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.

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. 

Kite Construction

MOLDED BUMPERS

Large thermo-molded bumpers wrap around the leading edge, which provide seam protection when landing and launching the kite.

ARAMID PATCHES

Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.

CANOPY STABILIZER

Trailing edge reinforcement for reduced flutter and canopy sheer/wear.

2-PIECE LEADING EDGE

This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.

HIGH FLOW VALVE

One-way valve for reduced frictional force, easy inflation and immediate deflation.
