The Naish Trip is a cutting-edge, strutless kite that is ideal for intermediate-to-advanced riders who want a versatile kite that surpasses expectations.

Design details

Travel/Freeride/Wave

Size: 8, 10, 12

Its simple, no-strut design delivers the wind range of a larger kite while retaining the fast, precision turning of a smaller kite. It provides incredible low-end, yet manageable power, while its immediate and direct bar feel allows effortless jumping, wave riding, and cruising.

In addition, the Trip packs up 30% smaller than a kite with struts, so it makes the perfect travel companion.

Now available in 8, 10 and 12m sizes to accommodate different rider sizes and weights.

  • No-strut design
  • Wind range of a larger kite
  • Precision turning of a smaller kite
  • Direct bar feel
  • Compact storage

Technology

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Power Foil Canopy
The power foil canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.

Kite Construction

EASY ACCESS ZIPPER PLACEMENT
Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.

INFLATION PRESSURE GAUGE
All Naish pumps include a built-in inflation pressure gauge. This provides optimum bladder pressure to maximize the kite’s performance.

VERTICAL SEAM STRUTS
A reduction in the number of pieces used in the struts means more precision in defining the canopy profile. The seams are also reinforced with an extra layer of webbing, and double zigzag stitches to avoid breakage.

ONE-WAY INFLATION VALVES
All LE inflation valves incorporate a ball system to eliminate air escape when removing the pump nozzle.

REINFORCED STRUT ZIPPERS
A double-Velcro flat enclosure ensures that the zipper will not fail under load.

DEFLATE VALVE DOUBLE VELCRO CLOSURE
The deflate valve has a double-Velcro closure design to ensure closure during impact.

2-PIECE LEADING EDGE
This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.

ARAMID PATCHES
Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.

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

MOLDED TE REINFORCEMENT
Optimal trailing edge protection with a molded reinforcement at the end of each strut.
