THE BEST SELLING KITE ON THE MARKET
Winner of Red Bull King of the Air, the Pivot is direct, versatile and efficient, maintaining its standout performer status in the Naish kite line. Perfect for both novice and professional kiters alike, the Pivot provides plenty of sheet-in-and-go, predictable power, direct bar pressure, easy jumping and control in the air.
The superior choice for versatile performance, the Pivot maintains a large wind range, proving dynamic and responsive in everything from waves to flat water. It has earned an impressive reputation for its intuitive steering and tight, quick axis of rotation and this new generation continues to push its capabilities even further.
With the Quad-Tex material, we have managed to remove heavy dacron panels along the struts, reducing weight while retaining canopy rigidity. The leading edge seam is made with our exclusive thread that has tested off the charts in overall strength.
The Pivot also comes with our exclusive Bladder Lock, which eliminates the risk of bladder movement in the leading edge and struts to ensure they stay in place when inflating, deflating, crashing or packing.
While the Pivot has received various tweaks and improvements that enhance the performance characteristics, it continues to stay true to its loyal following and remain as one of the most sought after kites worldwide.
2020 PIVOT REVIEWS
The Kiteboarder| "The Pivot has once again impressed us with its big air performance while maintaining its all-around freeride user-friendly abilities. The Pivot has the kind of peaky but all-around performance that suits just about everyone, from the big air junkie to the cruise-oriented freerider to wave hounds. Its fast turning and quick responsiveness are its most notable features that make it a great kite for the confident beginner or someone who's looking to progress into advanced freeride kiting and plans to wring the fun out of every type of riding."
