Blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, the Swept Compact C-shape also provides ideal relaunch capabilities.
The Power Foil Canopy has horizontal seam shaping instead of vertical, which makes the canopy looser than with Geo-Tech construction. The result is a kite that creates more instant lift.
The profile's depth and shape evolves along the airfoil. The center sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
This wing tip geometry reduces the overall surface on the non-lifting portion, and greatly reduces drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air, which allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.
The angle-of-attack on the wing tips has been increased to keep them more actively engaged. When bar input is added, the wing tip instantly reacts and produces drag, while the opposite wing tip instantly accelerates. This allows the kite to turn quicker.
The wing tip features a flow-through window, which reduces static friction and allows easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly.
This proven, quick and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. The Naish exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure in the struts does not change during turns.
Every strut is attached to a frame of heavy duty Dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.
All wing tips are designed with seams running parallel to the load generated by the flying lines. These seams carry most of the load, and spread it higher into the canopy. This construction avoids fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.
With all the new options available in light wind boards, riders are pushing the envelope of what is considered rideable. The new LWR (Light Wind Relaunch) gives the rider complete confidence when going out in the lightest of wind. This system lifts the wing tip independent of the rear leader line, and cups the trailing edge for instant relaunch. The LWR works when nothing else will.
Target: Designed with fun in mind, the Park is the one kite that does it all – any rider, any style, any condition.
The Park's 3-strut design and Swept Compact C outline provides a stable and responsive kite. The powerful profile and leading edge give the rider good low-end power and consistent pull over a wide wind range.
The Park utilizes just enough sweep to maximize depower and allow easy relaunch. The Swept Compact C platform remains very close to a real C-shape in order to provide the crispness and feel in the bar that you really need.
Designed with fun in mind, the Park provides the rider with the power to boost, the handling to hit the lip with style and the ability to feel good in any condition.
- Super easy handling
- Effortless water relaunch
- Power to boost
- Superior low-end performance
Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14
What's New: We focused on the low-end power delivery without losing any of the light, crisp feel. LE percentage and profile depth have been tuned to improve the low-end pull. We also slightly reduced the sweep in order to get the overall platform closer to a real classic C-shape. To maintain the relaunch characteristics, we slightly extended the wing tips, to keep the same leverage on the overall kite when the rider pulls on the back line.
The Result: The rider can expect earlier planing without sacrificing handling. The bar feel is crisper, which means the rider can better feel what the kite is doing and can steer it with precision. The relaunch is also improved over last year’s edition.
