Design details

Sizes: 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

Style: Pure Wave / Strapless

While still maintaining its outstanding drift and consistent pull, the leading edge has been slightly reduced in diameter as well as restructuring the wing tip by adding taper to make it turn even faster, an important characteristic when making quick reactions in the waves. This gives the kite a better torque transfer from the tip to the leading edge. The swept wing tip delivers unmatched drifting ability, light bar pressure and quick relaunch. Perfectly balanced, the bridles and geometry are tuned to produce an incredibly stable shape and intuitive performance.

Constructed with Quad-Tex and featuring our Shark Teeth trailing edge, keeping the profile of the kite even, making it lighter and more balanced, the 2018 Naish Slash is, easily, one of the strongest kites around. Intuitive, durable, dynamic. . . the Naish Slash puts you in control to rip the most out of your session.
