The ideal choice to stoke out dedicated wavekiters, the S26 Slash delivers unmatched drift, a wide wind range and quicker reaction time.
The Naish S26 Slash is the ideal choice to stoke out dedicated wave riders, the Slash delivers unmatched drift and a wide wind range. Establishing itself as Naish’s premier wave kite, the Slash provides incredible down-the-line drift and stable flight. Made to take a beating in heavy surf, you can focus on pushing your limits without having to worry about your gear. With the Slash, you can forget about the kite and become one with the wave.
Providing incredible low-end power and the best down-the-line drift in the Naish line, the bar pressure is light to help fi ght fatigue and keep kiters on the water even longer. Made to take a beating in heavy surf, the Quad-Tex canopy remains the strongest material in the industry, while the leading edge seam features
an exclusive HT+ thread that tested off the charts in strength.
Thanks to the strength that Quad-Tex provides, Dacron strut panels can be removed without a loss of canopy rigidity, allowing for further weight reduction.
The unique Bladder Lock ensures there is no movement in the leading edge bladder or struts when inflating, deflating, crashing or packing.
The Slash has established itself as Naish’s premier wave kite, providing incredible down-the-line drift and stable flight, perfect for park-and-ride style kitesurfing
Taking this sought-after C-kite to the next level, the addition of the Quad-Tex canopy makes the Pivot practically indestructible. Already engineered for solid control and handling in strong winds, the addition of Quad-Tex’s 4x-reinforced ripstop and perfectly balanced weave matrix—testing 30% stronger and stiffer than any other around heightens the stability and responsiveness of the Slash design. The pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the Slash.
Shark Teeth Trailing Edge:
Strategically placed triangular swaths work with Quad-Tex to reduce weight on the kite while minimizing and dispersing canopy flutter.
Naish Slash Depower:
The Naish Slash is a kite that depowers by flying to the edge of the window. Compared to other kites, the Pivot’s foil profile is thinner, and its Leading Edge diameter is smaller.
These two characteristics allow the kite to fly further forward in the window, and get there fast. This gives it the ability to depower quickly.
- Quad-Tex Ripstop Fabric
- Shark Teeth Trailing Edge
- Precision turns on a small axis with minimum power increase in the turn
- ABS Bridle
- Unmatched drifting ability
- Ultra-reinforced wingtip construction
- Quick water relaunch
- Constant leading edge taper
- SureLock Valve
- One Point Inflation System
The arc generates maximum projected area for power and lift while the swept design provides precision turning, control and ideal relaunch capabilities.
The profile’s depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
The centre 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 accurately 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.
Naish Torque Control Bar System
Riders of all levels, from pros to newcomers, will all gain substantial advantages from the new Naish Torque 2 System.
The Torque 2 bar takes the proven design of the original version and refines it with new grips and floaters, new PU-coated trim lines which feel smoother on your hands and reduce wear, a new slimmer one-piece trim cleat, and a new stopper ball to limit release throw.
The all new SnapLock quick release puts safety and efficiency as the top priorities, while adding click in simplicity and modularity with different loop sizes. The Torque 2 bar takes the proven design of the original version and refines it with new grips and floaters, new PU coated trim lines which feel smoother on your hands and reduce wear, a new slimmer one piece trim cleat, and a new stopper ball to limit release throw.
A 4-line or 5-line control system in a simple ergonomic layout. The 3m single centre line split allows the removal of heavy parts and allows the front line flagging leash and optional 5th Line Kit to function efficiently.
The Naish Control bar comes standard with the Smart Loop, auto-orienting sheeting loop, and optional sliding stopper.
The result is a simple and functional control system that provides the rider with greater confidence in its functionality in all situations.
With a greatly improved “through the bar” front line leash system, and new larger floaters, the ATB Control System is more streamlined and functional than ever before.
All kite sizes can be flown with the same bar.
