The veteran kite in the Naish line, the Naish S26 Torch has continually kept freestyle and big-air specialists stoked for more than a decade. The only kite that has won King of the Air, Freestyle World Championships and the Kite Park League World Title, the Torch remains tried and true in quality and performance.
This year’s model has been improved and fine-tuned to deliver smoother power and precise handling for predictable flying. Ideal for freestyle, the Torch creates slack after loading, making handle passes a breeze. Open up a new world in the park with the Torch’s top-notch stability and drift. For those ready to take kiting to the next level - grab a Torch.
With input from Red Bull King of the Air Champions and top freestyle kiters, the Torch continues to be refined and tuned to deliver smoother power and precise handling for predictable fl ying. Adjustments to the leading edge and 5th line deliver marked improvements in low end power, ensuring maximum power delivery in
The tension in the whole canopy has been fine tuned by adding a seam that spreads the back line tension further towards the center of the kite for an even more powerful and balanced kite as well as the new OnePoint and SureLock Infl ation System.The strength and rigidity of Quad-Tex contributes to overall weight reduction, enabling our designers to remove components that are no longer necessary. HT Plus—the leading edge thread reinforcement—continues to support the strength of our kites, ensuring the leading edge holds strong, beating after beating. Last, but not least, the ESP setting allows kiters to tune the fl ying angle for better control and easier depower.
Perhaps the ultimate, fastest-flying C-kite around, the Torch delivers precision response for hooked and unhooked riding. Its ESP setting allows riders to adjust the depower for more forgiving control while maintaining performance.
Offering smooth power delivery, with depower similar to that of a bridled kite, the Torch delivers precision response for hooked and unhooked riding.
Now available to a broader skillset, less experienced kiters can still ride like the pro's with the Torch’s new ESP setting, which allows riders to adjust the depower to have more forgiving control with all the performance.
Taking this sought-after C-kite to the next level, the addition of the Quad-Tex canopy makes the Torch 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 Torch design. The pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the Torch.
Naish Torch Depower:
The Naish Torch ESP is a kite that depowers by flying to the edge of the window. Compared to other kites, the Torch’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.

This proven airframe design delivers maximum pop and lift.
The non-swept outline aligns the center of effort with the tow point for perfect loading through the canopy at all times, resulting in power through the turn.
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.
Square Wing Tip:
Delivering the most direct bar feel.
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 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.
