The 2019 Naish Pivot Kite is a freeride/wave kite with an impressive pedigree of accomplishments including its first place win in the 2018 Red Bull King of the Air. While the Pivot is a favorite of top-tier riders, it is user-friendly enough for beginners, too.

THE FORCE TAKEAWAY

Our coaches and local riders love this kite! It has amazing drift and lighting fast turning. In the waves, the Pivot is super fun with plenty of on-demand power to give you great control to put you just where you want to be on the wave. When you crash it in the waves, it gets back up in a hurry. For foiling, its drift and massive depower really let you experience the freedom of foiling without overpowering you or falling out of the sky while you execute downwind turns. For the beginner, the Pivot is remarkably stable and user-friendly. We recommend the Pivot to anyone who kitesurfs, kitefoils, or just wants a predictable and easy to handle kite

NAISH'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14
Winner of 2018 Red Bull’s King of the Air, the Pivot is direct, versatile and efficient, maintaining its stand out 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 the 2019 Pivot 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 has also been “beefed-up” with a new thread that has tested off the charts in overall strength. The new Pivot also comes with 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 remains as one of the most sought-after kites worldwide.
