Naish Dash 2 2018/2019 Review

Postby LorenzoS » Wed Mar 28, 2018 6:50 pm

Hi kiters,

According to some of my friends the kite is a bit more rigid and has a smaller leading edge than last year, which makes it fly forwards faster.

When boasting the kite climbs a lot faster and gives you a harder pull off the water; so you definitely get some more height! It's seams that hangtime is about the same though which is fine.

Has anyone had a go on the new Naish Dash? The marketing material is one thing but real world review are more pragmatic :) I'm debating on the GTS4/5 Core or the new dash. I'm mostly interested in big-air and kite loops.

Thanks guys!

-Lorenzo

Nice. Please report back. I have last years 10 and love it, but it is a tad too aggressive for my riding. Fantastic for onshore waves and TT.

Got my 9 as an early Easter egg. But we have snow on the ground and lousy 2 degrees. Hopefully I can give it run on the weekend.

Rode it few times already.
Coming from Torches the kite is awesome.
Needed time to get dialed though... Tends to overfly little bit, if left unattended.
It slacks more than my old torch, hangs and jumps amazing, better low end yet lighter to steer.

Hi Ludmil,

Thanks for your review! What year Torches were you riding as the latest were significantly lagging low end?

:) 2015 and it was quite good in this regard.
Dash is different per se, more on/off. It's lighter, and as I'm used to the constant grunt from Torch I was initially disappointed. Than, after few sessions it just clicked, everything came together.
Dash is a very special kite for me (so far). :)

Would you say the new dash has more lift than the Torch 2015 (I loved that kite too)? I'm also debating changing as I want a little more friendly kite in our super gusty south of France conditions!
