Comparisson between the Naish Pivots vs Core Nexus

Postby k2thiago » Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:39 pm

Hi, have anyone flew these two side by side (Naish Pivots 2018/19 Vs Core Nexus), or, even better, owned both of them?
How is the flying behavior? Which one is overral more stable? Potential use for foil? Why would you choose one against the other? Totally biased opinions are welcome (at the end we are all humans), as also impartial ones ( if there is such a thing).
Thanks

Ridden them both. Both are good kites.

Pivot turns a bit faster and has a lighter feel in the air. Nexus is stable and predictable, it turns quick but I would not call it fast.

For me and my riding style, the Pivot wins out. When I am on a Pivot, the kite just goes where I want it, when I want it there, almost intuitively. Pretty much every other kite, I have to put it where I want it. i know that sounds weird, but the Pivot flies like it knows what I am doing and gets ready for it.

Thanks for the answer!
What about the potential for foiling? Would you say that both are suitable?

I'd say go for the Pivot ! Much more versatile and if you like big air this is the kite to go for !

You can use either for foiling, I have only foiled with the Pivot. But I would go for a foiling kite like the Boxer or the Ultra, they excel for foiling.
