Who is it for?
Dedicated freestyle riders and megaloop enthusiasts.
What’s it do?
Unmatched unhooked riding thanks to amazing pop and slack characteristics. Also provides the most engaged megaloop that you can trust to finish the loop every time in the Naish range.
Why is it unique?
It is THE Reference for C-Kites and probably the best C-kite on the market.
This year we have fine tuned the tension in the whole canopy by adding a seam that spreads the back line tension further towards the center of the kite for an even more powerful and balanced kite as well as the new OnePoint and SureLock Inflation System.
The longest running kite in the Naish line, the Torch with ESP has kept freestyle and big-air specialists stoked for over a decade.
With input from Red Bull King of the Air Champions and top freestyle kiters, the Torch continues to be refined and tuned to deliver smoother power and precise handling for predictable flying. Adjustments to the leading edge and 5th line deliver marked improvements in low end power, ensuring maximum power delivery in marginal conditions.
The strength and rigidity of Quad-Tex contributes to overall weight reduction, enabling our designers to remove components that are no longer necessary. HT Plus—the leading edge thread reinforcement—continues to support the strength of our kites, ensuring the leading edge holds strong, beating after beating. Last, but not least, the ESP setting allows kiters to tune the flying angle for better control and easier depower.

Reduces weight while minimizing & dispersing canopy flutter
Streamlined valve + pump hose locks to valve
Super easy inflation & deflation of kite
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.
(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.
Front-loading zip bag = quick & convenient packing
Front & bottom drainage mesh = enhanced ventilation
Centipede strap = link multiple kite bags for hands-free carrying
Side pump attachment
Kiteboard carry straps
Solid feel + stability + control in high winds
This proven airframe design delivers maximum pop and lift. The non-swept outline aligns the center of effort with the tow point for perfect loading through the canopy at all times, resulting in power through the turn.
Greater angle of attack control for more instant depower
Kite flies more open for more direct bar feel & heightened stability
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.
The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s arc.
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.
Patches along LE segments to protect the seams.
This construction provides better twist control of the leading edge, and improves turning performance.
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.
