Introducing the new Naish Boxer


Naish 1.jpg

We are stoked to introduce the NEW Boxer Kite at Naish! Built with our industry leading construction, Naish Kiteboarding continues to fly forward and progress the sport the same way we have for the past 21 years: making every day on the water a good one, no matter what the conditions.

The Naish Boxer, 2x winner of The Kite Mag’s Ultimate Test One-Strut Category, delivers both incredible low-end power, as well as controlled top-end handling. Originally designed for foiling, the Boxer has a wide range of power, quick turns and great downwind drift.

Whether you're looking for light-wind foiling or down-the-line wave riding, the Boxer is the kite for you.

For more information visit www.naishkiteboarding.com

MORE THAN JUST THE ULTIMATE ONE PUNCH KITE
Sizes: 2.8, 3.4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16

2x Winner of The Kite Mag's Ultimate Test.
The Boxer is amazing for light wind freeriding and down-the-line wave riding

Curious how the dialog went in hiring a new kite designer for Naish.
"Hello new kite designer, welcome to Naish. So as you know, world famous kite designer Damien Girardin designed all of our kites and they all function perfectly. Your job is to smile and wave at the camera and under no circumstances change the kite design at all. In time people will think you designed them"
Sounds like a pretty sweet gig. :lol:

The new Boxer just implemented the same changes as the 2020 Pivot made from 2019.

1) The valve has changed from a "Boston Valve" (external to kite) to a "SureLock Valve" (internal to kite)

2) Octopus inflation system changed to One Point Inflation System with 8 mm hoses.

In my opinion both of these are negative changes. I prefer Boston valve and Octopus inflation. So I'm glad I bought last years models of Pivot and Boxers!

hah. I love the new inflation system.
No more of the pump nozzle popping out, also having it flush alleviate any of my worry that the nozzle will puncture the canopy...I mean it never happened, so it was a silly worry. I probably have a slight preference for the octo system, but for no other reason than it was hidden...the new system seems to work fine and I have had no issues with it so far. I guess my attitude is still that I prefer to have a one pump system.

The small boxer is a great kite for foiling. The 6 is just such a smooth kite.
