DASH

Freestyle/Freeride

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

Designed for experienced kiters that like to push the limits, the Dash is THE fast-steering kite that delivers powerful pull and an engaging ride.

Built to move, the Dash generates powerful pull with ample bar pressure and more direct feel, which makes for incredibly fast turns. Active riders that like to keep their kite moving will appreciate the quick steering and dynamic feel.

For those that push the limits, for those that refuse to follow a straight line, for those that appreciate the huge payback from a little challenge, the Dash is dedicated to you.

KEY FEATURES

  • Quad Tex Ripstop Fabric = Most advanced Kite canopy on the market
  • Shark Teeth Trailing Edge = Reduces weight while minimizing and dispersing canopy flutter
  • Reduced Leading Edge Taper = Solid feel + stability + control in high winds
  • Direct Bar Feel
  • Easy Jumping & Long Gliding 
  • Unmatched Versatility
  • Super Fast Turning
  • 3-Strut Design

  
NEW FOR 2018/19:
  • Reduced Weight -  Quad-Tex enables the removal of the dacron reinforcement layer at each strut, resulting in a further reduction in overall weight
  • Reduced Leading Edge Diameter - Produces even faster turning and explosive pull for higher jumps and a more dynamic ride
  • Bladder Lock - Secures bladders ends and prevents slippage
  • HT Plus - Strong, high-tensile thread fortifies the leading edge

Shark Teeth Trailing Edge

Reduces weight while minimizing & dispersing canopy flutter


Bladder Lock

Secures bladders ends and prevents slippage

HT Plus

This high-tensile thread fortifies the leading edge along the seam, so you can confidently inflate to higher pressure for better flying characteristics.


Airmax Pump

(Sold Separately)

Making the experience of kite-inflation practically effortless, the all new Airmax Pump is the fastest and easiest on the market to date.

Dash Bag

Convenient top-zip big opening =  quick packing
Side pump attachment + vertical kite board carry straps
Mesh drainage patch along front and bottom

Reduced Leading Edge Taper

Solid feel + stability + control in high winds

Static Bridle Platform

Eliminates the pulley and keeps the kite stable and driving forward

High Flow Valve

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

Technology

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.

Compact C

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.

Square Wingtip

Delivers the most direct bar feel.

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.

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

Fiberglass reinforced plastic adds another level of protection and allows the leading edge to sustain very high pressure.
