The Naish Torch 2017 delivers the smooth power and aggressive turning that performance C-kite rider’s demand. The new Torch 2016 flies quickly through the air and will depower easily with a quick check of the board edge. Power is delivered smoothly, with depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of the kite’s ability to fly fast. Whether you are hooked in or unhooked, riding is effortless and precise. The position of the kite’s struts makes it stiffer in the air, for even more precise handling.
The Torch 2017 is designed for freestyle riders who demand a state-of-the-art, fast flying C-kite with precision response for hooked in and unhooked riding. Weight was reduced on the 2017 Torch by implementing reduced diameter struts, which increases the low-end power and improves handling. Power is delivered smoothly on the Torch, while the depower is similar to that of a bridled kite due to its ability to fly fast through the air.
