Naish Ride 2016 Kite
The Ride is a great kite for everyday kiteboarders looking for ease and simplicity.
The incredibly lightweight, two-strut design provides superior low-end performance due to its fuller center section, creating a drifting effect while maintaining smooth power delivery throughout turning. It also has a slightly flatter arc compared to other kites, which gives it more punch when sheeting-in and provides easy jumping along with that nice “sheet-in-and-go” feel.
The reduced surface area of the wing tip allows the kite to rotate with minimal drag on the water—resulting in a very easy water relaunch.
In addition, fewer struts allow the Ride to inflate faster and pack smaller, so it can travel practically anywhere and be the first kite to get out on the water.
New for this year are re-oriented struts and seams—allowing for better airflow throughout the kite and improved efficiency.
