Naish Says:

The 2015 Park is one kite that does it all for any rider, any style, in any condition. The powerful profile gives the rider outstanding low-end power and consistent pull over a wide range of wind speeds while the reduced leading edge taper and HD radial segmented arc provide a solid feel, extra stability and increased control. The Compact C outline and three-strut design create a stable and responsive kite. Designed with fun in mind, the Park provides an easy ride, the power to boost and outstanding freeride and freestyle performance.

Our Testers Say:

“Well built, stable all around kite, steady turning but the 10m felt like a kite size smaller,” Marko Barscherer.

“Great kite for load and pop, rig a bit bigger, but offers really good unhooked feel,” Alexis Rovira.

“Pulled like an 8m, not a super fast turner, I’d recommend the Pivot for big air boosting and waves,” Davey Beard.

NAISH-PARK-2015-GEAR-REVIEW-02

TKB Says:

The Park is a medium aspect 3-strut freeride kite that’s inspired by C-kite style performance. The Park inflates quickly with a new large diameter Boston valve that requires the standard large nozzle attachment; its struts inflate via Naish’s one-way internal Octopus distribution system while deflating is a two-step process in which the individual struts deflate independently from the leading edge. The Park features a single setting front bridle with no pulleys and three steering settings on the wingtip. Testers across the board commented on the Park’s sizing and suggested rigging a bigger kite in the line for an even comparison with other kites. The Park offers medium bar pressure and good steering response with medium turning speed. Testers were impressed by the Park’s quick relaunch and its user-friendly unhooked sheeting for freestyle. Testers would recommend the Park for those that are looking for the feel of a traditional C-kite, but recommend rigging one size larger.

NAISH-PARK-BAR-2015-GEAR-REVIEW-04

The Park comes with the redesigned Fusion Control Bar with dual adjustable length bar ends (45, 51cm and available in 20 or 24m lines) and features a single center-line safety depower, spectra sheeting/throw line, push away quick release with integrated below the bar tuning with a molded plastic loop and finger lock and above the bar swivel. The throw is adjustable by moving a fixed stopper with a fin key and the integrated foam bar ends feature a nifty retractable bungee and the ability to tune the outside lines. Testers commented on the bar’s overall light weight, comfortable, plush density, raised and textured ergonomic grip.
