New Naish Releases: Boxer, Dash, Foils and Surfboards


Boxer

All-around Freeride/Foiling
Sizes: 2.8, 3.4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16

“With great steering response and impeccable power control the Boxer nails down the perfect equation for foilboarding, but its power and handling make it much more than just a foil-head’s dream kite available in any size.” - The Kiteboarder

Designed for foil fanatics and wave riders alike, the Boxer is our one-strut kite, the lightest kite in our lineup, and offers the largest size range from 2.8 m - 16 m. The Boxer features a short depower bar throw and a luff strut design allowing the kite to float so it can be held back further in the window, eliminating the kite overflying in gusty winds. The Quad-Tex ripstop material is durable, delivering a lighter and more responsive kite. Whether you are looking for light wind kiting, down-the-line wave riding, or foiling, the Boxer has you covered.

Triad

All-around Freeride
Sizes: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14

“The Triad is the all-purpose kite in the Naish lineup that is geared to be super reliable and user-friendly with plug and play rigging that is ready to help you make the most out of your session.” - The Kiteboarder

The ultimate all-around wave riding machine, built to suit any rider’s needs, the Triad is intuitive, predictable, forgiving, and offers unmatched drift and control in any size surf. This three-strut kite has a center luff strut similar to the Boxer, which allows you to easily fly the Triad while overpowered. You can confidently pump up a Triad one to two sizes larger than you normally would, giving you lots of power with no compromises on control. The Quad-Tex ripstop material is durable, delivering a lighter and more responsive kite. If you are searching for a kite that does it all, the Triad will provide you just that, and more.

Wow - looks like the boss is back in charge with a low cost video production in the back of a room. Love it compared to the glitzy vids we get otherwise.

Anyone who can comment on this?
How does it work? and what does it do? Don't get it

Luff Strut
The luff strut provides an adaptable framework for better low-end power.

The canopy is not sewn directly onto the strut but there is a strip of cloth between both. That has been on the Boxer since it’s introduction a couple of years ago.
I think the effect is what is described in the video as „breathability“. The kite has a quite obvious sheet and go feel. In marginal conditions on a TT you can quite easily truck along by sheeting in. Interestingly the kite copes pretty well with stronger gust, so the range is not too bad for a 1-Strut kite.
I love it both for foiling and low wind TT riding and am waiting for my new 14m.

My boxer is my go-to foiling kite.
It also come to its own right in snow. The boxer is easily the best snow kite I have ever used. It is also decent in waves.

The 16m is my go to light wind TT kite.
I reckon that the 12-16 are awesome for surfing and a big TT.
I reckon that the 14&16m are a awesome light wind choice for TT and surfing probably more than for foiling. The lower sizes perfect for foiling IMO.
16m launches in 7 knots on and off the water.

Looks like that there are no changes to the kites. In the Instagram posts of the dealer meeting which is currently happening in Tarifa there were images of a new 5-strut kite called Phoenix. Possibly Naish‘s answer to all the other 5-strut big air kites. If it‘s fast turning with light bar pressure I am interested. I assume it will be launched with the rest of the line up (Pivot, Slash, Dash, Torch) later this year.
