Naish has reimagined how riders connect to their kite. The all-new SnapLock quick-release puts safety and efficiency as the top priorities while adding click-in simplicity and modularity with different loop sizes. The Torque 2 bar takes the proven design of the original version and refines it with new grips and floaters, new PU-coated trim lines which feel smoother on your hands and reduce wear, a new slimmer one-piece trim cleat, and a new stopper ball to limit release throw.

SNAPLOCK QUICK RELEASE TECHNICAL FEATURES

One-Click Reload
Effortlessly reload your quick release with one simple motion.

Instantaneous Loop Change
Swap between four different loop styles in an instant. Whether you are sharing kites with a friend, or want to change up your riding style, it is now easier than ever.

Release on Demand
An ergonomic design paired with an increased quick release throw keeps you clicked in securely and releases on demand.

Shortened System
We have brought everything within reach and enhanced your feeling of control by cutting over 3 cm off of the complete safety system.

MODULAR LOOP SYSTEM

The SnapLock safety system is a massive jump forward in quick-release technology. Starting with a shortened overall length, the release stroke has been increased and the release collar has a more ergonomic shape, making it virtually impossible to accidentally release. When you do decide to release, it’s easy to re-connect the loop — just click it together like a seat belt so you can quickly put your kite back together in the water instead of swimming home. Because the connection is so simple, it’s also easy to change loops. Naish has included 3 different loop styles in the box: a conventionally-sized standard loop, a new micro-sized loop, and a slider-loop for rope harnesses. A fourth large freestyle loop is available as an accessory.

Micro Loop
Leveraging the completely new loop attachment system, we’ve created the most compact loop on the market. The Micro Loop provides an incredibly locked-in and controlled experience, significantly reducing the distance between the rider and the trim cleat. The seamless transition between the kiter and the kite ensures the most direct kite connection available. Through countless iterations, we’ve developed a unique chicken finger to make attaching and detaching the loop effortless. If you’re not looking to unhook, this is undoubtedly the perfect loop for you.
Medium Loop
Playing off of the proven size of our previous QR, the Medium Loop offers a locked in feel while still allowing you to go unhooked at a moments notice.
Slider Loop
Built from incredibly strong and durable stainless steel, our carabiner-style Slider Loop provides the ideal low-friction attachment for rope slider harnesses. If you’re looking for the purest surf feeling or just loving riding toeside, this is the loop for you.
