The Naish Pivot kite, is our #1 selling Naish kite. It’s predictable power development, direct bar feel, intuitive steering and plenty of “sheet-in-and-go” are just a few characteristics that make the Pivot one of the most sought-after kites on the market. Adapting to a wide variety of wind and wave conditions, this kite features a medium aspect ratio for substantial low-end power, easy jumping and great upwind performance. Dynamic and responsive, it pivots quickly and easily on a small axis of rotation—with minimal power increase through turns—for super-smooth carving through waves and enhanced control going into and out of kiteloops.
Two-time King of the Air Champion, the Pivot, is unrivaled in terms of performance and versatility. It is famous for its jumping ability, incredible wave riding performance, amazing response and tight, pivoting turns.
Backed by Naish’s legendary construction, the Pivot uses only the best materials available. The Pivot has a wide wind range and incredible power generation for fast riding and huge boosts.
The Pivot has a new adjustment system for the bridle to give the Pivot even more range. It was inspired by the KOTA (King of the Air contest) riders who want to ride the biggest kite possible in super strong winds. It is also beneficial for strapless wave riders who don’t need the super strong pull. Naish’s flagship kite, the Pivot continues to lead the charge in innovation and performance.
Easy-handling, well-rounded and incredibly versatile, it’s clear to see how the Pivot has become the all-around choice for beginners to experts.
Different sizes have been optimized for the S26 2022 Pivot for better performance and handling, this is especially reflected in the 12 and 14 meter Pivot. These two sizes now have an even better low-end for the best lightwind performance. In addition, all 2022 Naish Pivots are equipped with a new, lightweight, trailing edge. The leading edge has also been made slightly thinner in diameter so that you can boost even better with this S26 Naish Pivot. Naish has chosen for a new bridle setup: one for extreme conditions (including big air, freeride) and one for strapless riding (on your surfboard). With the strapless bridle setup you will experience a little less bar pressure and a little more drift. While with the extreme condition setup you can boost better and have more bar pressure.
Of course, a number of things have also remained unchanged about the new Naish Pivot 2022 kite. For example, the S26 Naish Pivot still has the strongest quad-tex ripstop canopy, and an HT Plus seam, which ensures that the Naish Pivot 2022 is one of the most solidly byild kites on the market. All around, the Naish Pivot 2022 is provided with protected Aramid patches at vulnerable places. The diagonal seam ensures perfect tension of the QuadTex canopy and therefore a consistent power transmission to you as a kite surfer. Just like the past few years, the Naish Pivot 2022 also uses a One-Pump system with SUP valve.
All in all, the Naish Pivot 2022 S26 is an awesome high performance freeride kite with which you can easily jump high and have playfull freeride sessions. If you are a more advanced kitesurfer you can use the height the Naish Pivot 2022 gives you to practice your first kiteloops on awesome hooked tricks.
