WHO’S IT FOR?
Advanced kiters looking for a fast and engaging kite.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Flies and turns fast thanks to the C-shape, small leading edge, and relatively flat profile & size of the wingtip. This also makes the Dash great for kite loops (finishes the turn really well) and jumps high by creating an immediate and strong pull at the start delivering a powerful and “punchy” feel.
Increased low end power thanks to a new bridle geometry.
WHY IS IT UNIQUE?
Compared to the Pivot, the Dash is more engaging, more “punchy” and turns faster. It also creates more drive when unhooked. Its power and forward flying ability delivers similar performance to the Torch—creating good pop and slack for kiters that like to ride unhooked.
Advanced kiters looking for a fast and powerful kite will be stoked on the Dash. Simply put, this kite flies fast, turns fast and has a powerful and “punchy” feel. The C-shape, small leading edge and relatively flat profile create strong pull immediately, which is a huge benefit for riders looking to jump high. The Dash not only turns fast, it completes them really nicely too. Anyone looking to pull off a killer kite loop will benefit from its superior turning performance. This newest model features a new bridle geometry creating much better low end for more consistent power in gusty conditions. Those looking to ride unhooked will find its forward flying ability and power to perform similar to a Torch, as it offers great pop and slack.

Reduces weight while minimizing & dispersing canopy flutter
Secures bladders ends and prevents slippage
This high-tensile thread fortifies the leading edge along the seam, so you can confidently inflate to higher pressure for better flying characteristics.
Convenient top-zip big opening = quick packing
Side pump attachment + vertical kite board carry straps
Mesh drainage patch along front and bottom
Solid feel + stability + control in high winds
Eliminates the pulley and keeps the kite stable and driving forward
One-way valve for reduced frictional force + easy inflation + immediate deflation
Centipede strap = link multiple kite bags for hands-free carrying
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.
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.
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.
The 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.
Delivers the most direct bar feel.
Extremely easy access to the internal valve when replacing bladders.
Optimal trailing edge protection with a molded reinforcement at the end of each strut.
Large thermo-molded bumpers wrap around the leading edge, which provide seam protection when landing and launching the kite.
Buffers and disperses canopy flutter to reduce wear and enhance durability
This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.
The deflate valve has a double-Velcro closure design to ensure closure during impact.
A double-Velcro flat enclosure ensures that the zipper will not fail under load.
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.
