Boxer

Freeride/Foiling

Sizes: 3.5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16

WHO’S IT FOR?

Any rider looking to go out with a smaller kite than anyone else in marginal conditions for underpowered riding and foiling.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Flies and generates power in the lightest wind and has great bar feel and turning speed.

WHAT’S NEW?

Streamlined construction is lighter weight.

WHY IS IT UNIQUE?

Lightest kite on the market, and therefore exceptionally efficient in marginal conditions Amazing water relaunch in marginal conditions.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

With its light pull, light weight and light input, the Boxer is the ultimate kite for underpowered riding and foiling. The single luff strut and Quad-Tex construction create a lightweight framework that stays in the air easily—even in super light wind. This eliminates any struggle to keep the kite up, so you can keep your focus on foiling. When sheeting out, it quickly offers a lot of depower in a shorter throw. This keeps the kite from pulling too much and feels as if it almost disappears. Its lightweight load pulls more through the bar than through the harness, for more direct steering. And because it’s so responsive to lighter inputs, lighter riders and foilers can easily make micro-adjustments without being thrown off-balance. This year we worked on making the kite even lighter. Each size has saved up to 280 g, making the boxer the lightest kite on the market. All these precious grams saved translate to weight the wind does not need to carry anymore and creates a more efficient kite for your session. Available in sizes as small as 2.8 meters, the Boxer is built for foiling. It’s such a great all-around performer that larger sizes do really well during lightwind twin tip riding too! If you’re foiling, riding underpowered, or have lighter input, the Boxer will let you push the boundaries of light wind.

Single Luff Strut

Allows kite center to expand & contract freely for easy relaunch and high-end control


Reduced Leading Edge Taper

Solid feel + stability + control in high winds

High Flow Valve

One-way valve for reduced frictional force + easy inflation + immediate deflation

Technology

Swept Compact C

The swept compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control, and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal relaunch capabilities.

HD Radial Segmented Arc

The HD Radial Segmented shape uses twice the amount of short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s arc, resulting in increased arc definition and a more solid kite.

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.

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.

Anti-stiction Window

The wing tip features a flow-through window, which reduces static friction and allows for easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly.

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.

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.

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.
