The Naish Torch 2021 is one of the last remaining hardcore C kites. That means huge slack for your unhooked tricks and the most extreme powerful kiteloops. Not the easiest kite on the market, but if you know how to tame this beast then you will love it.
The Naish Torch is the veteran among kites. There is no kite with more titles to its name. The only kite that has won the King of the Air, the World Championship freestyle, and the World Championship Kite Park League. Maybe not the easiest kite, but if you know how to tame this kite, there is no way back. The Naish Torch 2021 excels in unhooked freestyle and powered kiteloops. The 2021 model of the Torch has been improved in terms of more "smooth" power build-up and better handling. The gigantic slack that the Torch 2021 creates after loading for your pop remains unmatched, making handle passes a piece of cake.
The Naish Torch 2021 is one of the last remaining real C kites. And you can feel it. The Torch 2021 is direct and has a great high end. Thanks to that high end and its direct steering behavior, you will pull the sickest megaloops with the Torch 2021. The bar pressure is medium to hard, so you always know where the Torch 2021 is in the wind window. This is a kite that you can control with your eyes closed. The Naish Torch 2021 relaunch will be using a 5th line. Also this year the Naish Torch is equipped with the EPS system again if you would like a slightly friendlier Naish Torch 2021. The diagonal seam stitched through the fabric spreads the force better across the Torch 2021 making the Torch feel more balanced
Just like the other Naish kites, the Torch 2021 is made of the strongest canopy on the market: QuadTex. To make the Torch 2021 even more durable, vulnerable points have been reinforced with rubber-like bumpers and Aramid / Kevlar patches. In addition, extra strong yarn has been used in the Leading Edge so that you can pump up the Torch super hard. On the trailing edge you see the characteristic Naish "Shark Teeth Trailing Edge", this trailing edge prevents flapping in the trailing edge, making the Torch more stable in the air.
