Naish Pivot 2017

R 21,000.00

FREERIDE / WAVE

Predictable power development, direct bar feel, intuitive steering and plenty of “sheet-in-and-go” are just a few characteristics that make the Pivot one of the most sought-after kites on the market. Adapting to a wide variety of wind and wave conditions, this kite features a medium aspect ratio for substantial low-end power, easy jumping and great upwind performance. Dynamic and responsive, it pivots quickly and easily on a small axis of rotation—with minimal power increase through turns—for super-smooth carving through waves and enhanced control going into and out of kiteloops.

Now constructed with Quad-Tex—the most advanced kite canopy material in existence—the Pivot is livelier and more responsive than ever. The stronger, stiffer fabric transfers energy more directly putting riders in complete control.

Easy-handling, well-rounded and incredibly versatile, it’s clear to see how the Pivot has become the all-around choice for everyone, everywhere.

  • Quad-Tex - strongest kite canopy material on the market featuring 4x-reinforced ripstop.
  • “Sheet-in-and-go” feel + easy jumping.
  • Quick water relaunch.
  • Canopy Stabilizer.
  • High-flow Valve.
  • Precision turns on a small axis with minimal power increase in the turn.
  • ABS Bridle for consistent forward drive + maximum depower + no back-stalling.
  • Natural drifting effect.
  • Constant leading edge taper.

KITE SPECIFICATIONS

KITE TECH

Swept Arc:

  • The arc generates maximum projected area for power and lift while the swept design provides precision turning, control and ideal relaunch capabilities.

Lightweight Solid Frame Construction:

  • Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavy-duty dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.

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.

    Radial Segmented Arc: 

    • The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to a ccurately 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.

        KITE CONSTRUCTION

        EASY ACCESS ZIPPER PLACEMENT:

        • Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.

        MOLDED TE REINFORCEMENT:

        • Optimal trailing edge protection with a molded reinforcement at the end of each strut.

        MOLDED BUMPERS:

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

        ARAMID PATCHES:

        • Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.

        CANOPY STABILIZER:

        • Trailing edge reinforcement for reduced flutter and canopy sheer/wear.

        2-PIECE LEADING EDGE:

        • This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.

        DEFLATE VALVE DOUBLE VELCRO CLOSURE:

        • The deflate valve has a double-Velcro closure design to ensure closure during impact.

        REINFORCED STRUT ZIPPERS:

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

        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.

          HIGH FLOW VALVE:

          • One way valve for reduced frictional force, easy inflation and immediate deflation.
