SLASH

Pure Wave/Strapless

Sizes: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Known for its outstanding drift and consistent pull, the next generation of the Slash features subtle modifications for improved all-around performance. Constructed with Quad-Tex, the strongest kite canopy material available on the market featuring 4x-reinforced ripstop, this kite is built to last. A smaller leading edge and tapered wing tip delivers faster turning—a helpful feature for quick reactions in waves. The Shark Teeth Trailing edge enhances durability, lightens and balances the kite overall and further supports faster turns by providing better torque transfer from the leading edge to the trailing edge. The addition of 11 m and 12 m sizes mean you can now ride in lighter winds and start perfecting those strapless airs.

Technology

Swept Arc

The arc generates maximum projected area for power and lift while the swept design provides precision turning, control and ideal relaunch capabilities.

Lightweight Solid Frame Construction

Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavy-duty dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.

Extra-reinforced Wingtip Construction

Strength in wipeouts/surf-ready

Evolutive Profile

The profile’s depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling. The center sections generate power thanks to a deeper profile, while the flatter profile in the tips minimizes drag and allows faster turning.

Radial Segmented Arc

The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s arc.

Low Drag Wing Tip

This wing tip geometry decreases the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, greatly reducing drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.

Octopus Inflation System

This proven, quick, and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. Naish’s exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure within the struts does not change during turns.

Radial Load Distribution

All wing tips are designed with seams running parallel to the load generated by the flying lines. These seams carry most of the load and spread it higher into the canopy. This design helps prevent fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.

Kite Construction

EASY ACCESS ZIPPER PLACEMENT

Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.

MOLDED TE REINFORCEMENT

Optimal trailing edge protection with a molded reinforcement at the end of each strut.

MOLDED BUMPERS

Large thermo-molded bumpers wrap around the leading edge, which provide seam protection when landing and launching the kite.

ARAMID PATCHES

Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.

SHARK TEETH TRAILING EDGE

Buffers and disperses canopy flutter to reduce wear and enhance durability

2-PIECE LEADING EDGE

This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.

DEFLATE VALVE DOUBLE VELCRO CLOSURE

The deflate valve has a double-Velcro closure design to ensure closure during impact.

REINFORCED STRUT ZIPPERS

A double-Velcro flat enclosure ensures that the zipper will not fail under load.

VERTICAL SEAM STRUTS

A reduction in the number of pieces used in the struts means more precision in defining the canopy profile. The seams are also reinforced with an extra layer of webbing, and double zigzag stitches to avoid breakage.

HIGH FLOW VALVE

One-way valve for reduced frictional force, easy inflation and immediate deflation.
