But Delta is definitely the new BOW.
You're right we are being manipulated... :D

Looks cool from the limited pic...
...and the Wainman looks a "little" like the Naish R3 :allbegood:

Hi,

this kite uses my idea of straight delta less-segmented kite, called "Spider".

Image

This one is 4.5m proto which I've actually made in late 2007 for my 10 years boy to be able to kite in higher winds.
The design prooves to be great in relaunch (actually better than a sigma shape), extreme depower (huge depower in short arm throw). Due to different orientated panneling has better canopy shape when depowered. But that's it. No other advantages over other designs for me... and my latest designs are better than this one...

Maybe to mention, I have a design called "Birdy" laying somewhere :), it is actually a mix of rounded sigma LE and delta shape..

hahaha... hillarious...
sigma design will change everthing or what was the marketings blabla for the last 2 years...?!

so i guess the sigma design is so supirior that the transform it into a delta and call it new again!

watch out all other brands - naish got something new!

Yeah, well the Sigma shape is still in use so I don't get your point.

my point is - the evolution of sigma shape seems to be moving over to other designs...

As I see it, they have added a model based on the Delta outline to co-exist with the Sigma models Cult and Helix (who will look more C than last generation) and the C-shaped Torch. I would be surprised if they sat down and said "well, we found the final design last year so we won't bother making something new". But maybe you know something that I don't...

The Naish Charger photo is already out on the web and no secret anymore.
Kite Forum doesn't censor the rude and crude posts,
so why would you want to remove a legitimate public photo?

But what I really want to know,
Who is the intended rider for the Charger?
And has anybody flown it yet? :D

Maybe they have decided to rename it as there is already a kite coming out with the same name from another Brand. :lol:
