Looks like an other freeride kite from Naish! When is it coming out? Looking good!
Naish posted the video but nothing on their website.

Did you see that directional board around 1:00 with the nose cut off?

Well...
another leak:

also, in last issue of iksurfmag (n.45), there is a photo of Kai Lenny riding with it (p.16).

I'd say according to the marketing mambo-jumbo that it is supposed to be a Park more wave-oriented.

Waiting to see what they would come up with for the Park 2015 before updating my 2012, hope this doesn't mean they would discontinue it..

Ah, nevermind, of course they will continue with the Torch and Park in 2015... (http://gokite.com.br/2014/06/naish-pivot-2015/)
So with the Ride, Drift, Trip, Fly, this would be another kite...
Does any one feels like adding one kite to the mix would give too much (confusing) choice?
I love my Parks, thought it is true that they lack in this "sheet-in & go" feeling...
I do freeride mainly, but started wave-riding strapless and freestyle, so how am I to choose between Park, Ride and this new Pivot?

On the wave, you want the kite to be quiet and stop pulling you around.
The Park is stronger and may pull you out of the sweet spot
or provide power when you don't want it.
The Ride is quieter and has less punch.
For strapless wave riding, I like the Ride.
Guess we will wait and see what the Pivot is all about.

@windyway, thanks for your info.
Well, I don't know why, because I hear only good things about the ride, but I did not like it when I tested the ride, and did only freeride when doing so... I remember that I did not like the way the power was delivered, and it felt like it was more difficult to go upwind with it: more power than a Park, but pulling you downwind with it... I guess I am too accustomed to the Park already.
As you say, let wait and see what the Pivot is about...

The shop says that the Pivot should be in stock from July 15th.
if you read the infos, from what I assume is the press text of Naish, there is also a "high flow valve" mentioned. Seems that Naish finally felt the pressure of the competitors.
Just wondering why they did not bring it on the new Rides and Drafts? :jump:

So I hope the new Parks will also have it.
