What We Like:
The Pivot feels fast and nimble in the air. Medium bar pressure and smooth power delivery add to the mix to make the Pivot a joy to fly.

We found that the hangtime and float was exceptional with the Pivot which definitely makes it a superb choice for "freeriders".

Another major positive was that this kite maintained back line tension even with full depower pulled on.

What we don't like:
We had a little trouble when rolling the kite during a big crash. Not a big deal as most kites will do strange things when you roll them but worth noting.

Why you want the Naish Pivot:
In the search for a kite that will do everything, the Pivot is a great choice. This kite is especially good for those of you who divide your time between cruising/jumping and riding waves!
Naish Description:
The Pivot emerges in the lineup as a smooth, all-around freeride/wave kite for a wide range of riders and styles. Its overall structure and ability to pivot on a small axis of rotation provides quick and easy turning, intuitive steering and predictable power development. It features a medium aspect ratio for substantial low-end power, a “sheet-in and go” feel, easy jumping and great upwind performance. Thanks to its ability to make precision turns on a small axis with minimum power increase in the turn, the Pivot is also the perfect tool for smooth kite loops.

Aside from being a fantastic freeride kite, the Pivot’s characteristics also make it a great wave kite. Its lightweight design delivers smooth power, controlled turns and superior drifting in a variety of wind and wave conditions. The ABS bridle also helps decrease the amount of pull on the harness for forgiving strapless riding.

    These are the best kites I've owned ! Worth the price ! Does it all well not just in the waves. Great construction ! Great drift ! Great turning ! Good low end ! Med bar pressure. Still getting used to the oversize valve though . Every time I deflate it,it sounds like I blew up my kite ! Haha

    The PERFECT Beginner Kite

    by Tim on Aug 8, 2014

    155lb novice, had NO problem going upwind in lots of oceanside chop in Virginia Beach. This kite is the consummate "set it and forget" style wave kite, you get into the wave, put it up overhead out of the way, surf down the line, then dive it towards the lineup and pull yourself back to the outside. The best way to describe this kite is simply to verify that everything said in the Naish and Real reviews is accurate. It does EXACTLY what they say it does. It's a very light kite that's easy to pump up as well, which makes getting rigged and riding a total snap. If you leave your bar connected to your kite, you can literally be in the water within 5 minutes of hitting the beach.
