Intriguing claim: "the right kite for the 99.9% of the world population" !

is this new kite going to replace of their current ones? slash, pivot, ride, boxer, dash ? :lol:

My assumption is that it is going to replace the Ride. Same user profile but with 3 Struts instead of 2.

I think it would replace the Ride as alround freeride kite and the pivot would be placed more at the Big Air area. I also think, most of the people are looking for a three strut kite and 2 Strut is a little bit to strange for the most of the people out there

imo naish and the other top companies now realise that their marketing of many different specialist kites actually damaged kiteboarding.

It confused those that dont need to be confused, as far as perceived value, sure a few wealthy middle aged riders pay a premium for specialist top end perceived value that has grown in kiteboarding but the truth is we have seen a big downturn in the number of young riders involved in kiteboarding and that is going to damage it long term.. no grassroots

1. doesnt deathloop easily 2. relaunch easily 3. fly easily 4. doenst fall apart - that is what we need

When a sport relies on expensive specialist equipment to stay competitive it becomes classist.

Agree with your first statement. Core fans were almost heart broken when they strayed from their two kite lineup and branched out to a myriad of specialist offerings.

Triad meaning 3, Freeride, Wave, Freestyle.

Will probably be Naish's version of the Ozone Enduro, being able to be adjusted to each discipline.

Hmmm...except doesn’t the Pivot kind of already cover that?? Although I guess not really for freestyle..but nobody doing freestyle is likely to buy it anyway...
