I just bought the 14m and 12m pivots I love em ! Only 14m kite I've ever owned that actually drifts. Goes up wind really good too. Rode the 14m yesterday in 14-16mph and then it picked up to15-16.5mph and I pumped up the 12m. They both turn really fast for their sizes.

Recently bought a 9 Pivot, and do not miss my 8 and 10 Rides. Jumps and floats great. Bar pressure at least as light if not lighter, even on middle setting of steering lines. Really fun kite !

I will for sure. I have ridden the 10 and 14 so far :-)
Today was pretty good with biggish waves and nuking winds.

We just got our Pivots in the UK. Some nice wind in the last couple of days so I put a 10m on demo. In the sky the kite feels quicker than the Ride, it's very agile in the turns and flies forward keeping it's speed out of turns really well. The power stays very constant in the turn, which is very nice strapless, it doesn't pull in the turn like a 2014 park will. Running towards the kite at speed out of a kite loop or a turn on the chop it drifts back and picks up the line tension with no drama. Actually for kite loops the smooth pull and forward flying work a treat and the pivot would be good for intermediates looking to gain confidence, without getting too much of a yank in the loop.

Upwind seems good, I think a tad better than park or ride, not so powerful at the edge of the window as the Draft though, but waaaay easier to live with strapless! Boosting on a twin tip is also very good, but hang time is less than Draft as you would expect. For a 'wave' kite the pivot is actually a very competent all rounder!

From a shop point of view, based on my demo experience of park, ride, draft, pivot, I would expect to sell more pivots than any other model of Naish kite.... I've not tested the light wind relaunch, but I think most guys on the Ride will find the pivot easy enough and with better all round performance. Kiters using the park and not unhooking would probably get more out of the pivot as well. Just my initial thoughts on it. I guess time will tell.

I suspect the design of the new Pivot does not favor unhooking but, for those who tried, is unhooking any good with the Pivot?
I guess it will depend on where the kite sits at the edge of the wind window...
Would it be comparable to unhooking with, say, the North Evo or the Airush Lithium, or better?

Bought the 12M Pivot, great kite, BUT

Bar pressure is greater than my 2011 12m cult and 2012 12m park

My son , 26yo also rides my kites and he also found bar pressure heavier.

Then I texted a Naish Pro in Maui and he concurred with my assessment

Any others?

I have a 2013 9m park, and was thinking to get a 9m pivot but bar pressure has me worried.

Don't want arm fatigue after a couple hrs in water

Thanks for input. Max
