Aloha – BIG NEWS going on at the Naish HQ’s! We just got the news that they’ve released the NEW Torque 2 control system, Boxer, Triad, Dash and Kite Foilboards, and we’ve got the details, pics and links, right here!
Torque 2 Control System
Naish has reimagined how riders connect to their kite. The all-new SnapLock quick-release puts safety and efficiency as the top priorities while adding click-in simplicity and modularity with different loop sizes. In addition, the Torque 2 bar takes the proven design of the original version and refines it with new grips and floaters, new PU-coated trim lines which feel smoother on your hands and reduce wear, a new slimmer one-piece trim cleat, and a new stopper ball to limit release throw.

Meet our new additions to our kite lineup – the Boxer, Triad, and Dash. The Boxer is the lightest, most responsive kite in our lineup and made to excel in light wind, waves, and on the foil. The Triad is our all-around freeride machine offering smooth and predictable jumps and forgiving steering. The Dash is for fast, aggressive riders and anyone who loves to push the limits. The Boxer, Dash, and Triad join the Torch, Pivot, and Slash for a complete kite lineup where every rider can find their perfect match.
The Boxer – All-around Freeride/Foiling
Sometimes less is more. Weight matters, and the Boxer is the lightest, most responsive kite in our lineup. Made to excel in light wind, waves, and foiling, the Boxer offers easy transitions and relaunch capabilities. Its unique luff strut design allows the kite to feather so you can hold it further back in the window and ride it there, which eliminates the problem of your kite overflying you in gusty winds. In addition, the single strut’s rotational inertia creates even better handling for underpowered riding. So if you’re looking to maximise your light wind kiting or get into foiling, the Boxer is the best option on the market.
- The Best One-Strut kite on the market
- Great low-end power and tons of depower in a short throw
- Floats in light wind
- Perfect for foiling, freeride, and waves
- Biggest size range 2.8-16

The Triad – All-around Freeride
The Triad is an all-around freeride machine. This kite handles power extremely well and is a reliable kite for smooth, predictable jumps and forgiving steering. Its ease of control inspires confidence and makes it a great jumping kite giving even the Pivot a run for its money in most conditions. This three-strut kite has a centre luff strut similar to the Boxer and provides a linear and forgiving powerband
with great sheet-in-and-go power. For anyone searching for a kite that does everything, the Triad is a great choice for you.
- Intuitive and stable with true sheet-in-and-go power
- Forgiving steering, so the kite does not overreact
- Super easy jumps
- Consistent & predictable power
- Effortless water relaunch

The Dash – Freestyle/Big Air
The kite will make your skills stand out from the rest. The Dash is for fast, aggressive riders and anyone who loves to push the limits. We’ve engineered this kite to be versatile for kite loops and unhooked moves, with lots of room to showcase your personal style. The Dash will stand out to riders with a need for speed and delivers powerful jumping and ultra-fast turning capabilities. In addition, we’ve adapted this year’s Dash with reduced panel count and seams to make for a lighter yet extremely durable kite.
- Fast and engaging kite for advanced kiters
- Great for kiteloops and unhooked riding
- Direct bar feel achieved through a pulley less bridle system
- Great top end because the kite flies forward in the window

Hover Kite – Kite foiling
Compact with medium volume, the Hover Kite takes full advantage of a minimalist design. This board delivers superior control in tight turns for a dynamic and responsive riding experience.

In addition, the dual-track system allows riders to instantly adjust where the foil sits on the board for a more customized riding experience.
