Naish importers are asking the newssites to delete all info about the X3!! They have to act blind to all the news concurning the X3, hey guys it's a free world !!

What's the plan at Naish Kites?

what x3.

you mean that colour scheme test image that someone dug up.

guys, there is no current x3 in the pipeline anytime soon. not unless naish start sticking badges on x2's.


you've been had by naish's attempt to steal some glory from other kite companies releases by leaking out a picture of a kite that doesn't exist, thats why it had no distinguishable fetaures.

cos if it did exist naish wouldn't still be making x2's.

wake up and smell the coffee, you are being played.

good point, but why shouldn't Naish still sell X2 when the market requires it?
If they will have a new X3 we all know that it won't be out until summer!

But I wondered from the beginning about their strategy, since the X2 came out so late, now the X10 is coming and the Aero 2 is very good and close to the X2.

So for me the question is: where should be the X3 positioned?

More performance and you have the X10, less and you have the Aero2 ?!?!?!?!?

Can anyone explain it?

Thx
Toby

i think what he meant was there is no x3, not for 6 months at least, the x3 will be a straight x2 replacement, the x10 is probably never going to hit the market seriously.

the x10 is a marketing tool.

and claims that naish are asking people not to post about the x3 seems cycnical, or stupid, anything naish say on this subject just adds fuel to the fire.

if there is an x3 ready to go then they might ask news stands to hold back, but if its not ready then you bet your ass they want this rumour mill to go on until it is ready.

what the one thing worse than everybody talking about you? every not talking about you.


i don't think there's an x3 coming anytime soon. and having seen the flexifoils, i don't think many people will care either.

It has been the same when I published the first X2 infos. The distributors and Naish were scared that nobody would buy their AR-X anymore.

These days with a great X2 it's not worth to wait for an X3. But the AR-X was an old kite especially compared to the Airblast (at least one year behind), so they wanted not to have the information about the X2 published already.

Hi,

They asked me to remove the picture of the X3, but since the picture is posted on nearly every Forum on the web whats the sence of removing it? Everybody already knows the Naish R&D crew are working on the X3.

It will be a replacement of the X2 if we follow Toby's logic.

I will still purchase the X2, no problem kite...

Ciao, MO
