What Naish has to say about the Slash
Developed with elite riders on the crest of the most legendary waves in the world - and tested to perform even the most sloppy, onshore conditions - the Slash offers a smooth, yet responsive experience that adapts to a diversity of surf and trick riding.
Born from the DNA of the renowned Pivot, the Slash features a lower aspect ratio and higher, wider wingtips for a compact overall outline which makes it easy to turn quickly and change direction. The swept wing tip delivers unmatched drifting ability, light bar pressure, and quick relaunch. Perfectly balanced, the bridles and geometry are tuned to produce an incredibly stable shape and intuitive performance.
- Now constructed with Quad-Tex - the most advanced kite canopy material in existence. Quad-Tex take a "strength-first" approach constructing the base layer with 4x-reinforced ripstop, then balancing the grid with the optimal strength-to-weight ratio for heavy-duty rip protection. High tenacity polyester yarn fills out the framework and is reinforced with high-grade resin for increased water-resistance and longevity.
- The Pivot's profile depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast-flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
- The wing tip construction is extra-reinforced to make your kite surf-ready and have strength in wipe outs.
