The Naish Bolt 2012 is versatile, stable and predictable. The Bolt 2012 is for riders who are looking for an all-around kite, with superior stability.
The Bolt is built on the Naish Sigma foundation, to provide stability, fast turning and solid bar feel. Featuring the new Evolutive Profile, the Bolt is power-oriented in the large sizes and control-focused in the smaller sizes.
The Geo-Tech construction maintains the designed shape even in the gustiest of conditions — ensuring a long-lasting kite.
The Naish Bolt 2012 is for riders who demand performance over the broadest of conditions. It incorporates the newest design DNA for incredible stability, direct bar feel, fast turning and easy jumping.
For 2012, Naish have concentrated on improving control over the kite's wind range in three ways. The wing tip angles (direct response steering) have been reworked in all sizes, to create less drag on the kite. The arc in the centre area has been rounded out. This increases the surface in the middle of the kite and allows the trailing edge curve to match the leading edge shape perfectly and Naish have developed a new automated application involving the calculations of the leading edge's moment of inertia, Young modulus, and air pressure, to generate the perfect LE diameter for each kite size.
The result is a kite that is able to fly faster and further forward in the window, providing more lift efficiency, better low-end and all-around stability, generates more power in the low end and is more lift efficient and each kite size has ideal LE rigidity and the smallest drag possible, to fly as far forward as possible.
The new simplified bridles provide direct and light bar feel, and the degree of Naish Sigma angle has been increased to improve turning characteristics and linear bar feel.
Designed for beginner through to advanced riders seeking a stable, easy-handling kite. The Naish Bolt 2012 now boasts an even larger sweet spot, ideal pull through the turns, and enhanced smoothness.
Beginners will enjoy the smooth and responsive steering, light bar pressure, and depower capability. Advanced riders will appreciate the balanced feel hooked-in or unhooked. The easy re-launch will help beginner to advanced rider get back up and going in a moment.
For 2012"Geo-Tech Generated C-Shape" and simplified bridles provide a more direct bar feel. The amount of Naish Sigma has been increased to improve turning characteristics and linear bar feel.
Naish’s new Sigma design concepts and Geo-Tech construction define the natural evolution of using new technologies to adapt to the ever-changing performance requirements of modern kites.
Visually striking while providing amazing canopy tension, these kites have unmatched stability and wind range, precise handling, light and linear bar pressure, and unbelievably easy water re-launch capabilities. One glimpse, one ride, and you will never look at Kiteboarding the same again.
The Naish Bolt uses two new patented design
features: Sigma Outline and Geotech. Both increase performance
at different levels, and their combination creates an amazing
step forward in kite performance.
Power Foil Canopy in the centre of the kite for increased power. Geo-Tech is used on the lower arc where angle-of-attack on the foil is low. This provides superior stability, less drag and a solid feel in the air.
The profile's depth and shape evolves along the airfoil. The center sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.

Naish Sigma Outline
The Naish Sigma Outline is a radically re-shaped leading edge that moves a large portion of the centre canopy behind the tow point. The result is a perfectly balanced kite that delivers significant performance improvements in the areas of overall stability, bar pressure and feel, turning, and relaunch.
The performance of Sigma Outline kites combined with the Geo-Tech design is far superior to any bow concept in that the keeps the kite more stable than any bow, there is no inversion with Sigma Series kites, and they have a wider wind range due to more efficient profiles.
Overall, the Sigma design produces a balanced, linear power band combined with bar pressure that remains light but steady through a wide range of trim angles, creating a nearly perfect feedback loop between rider and kite.
The Naish Sigma leading edge
enables the rider to turn the kite at any speed with absolute
control. This Naish Sigma leading edge produces a ‘hinge’
point at the centre of the kite.
Naish Sigma Water
During water relaunch the kite pivots on either shoulder point. The rapid recovery gives the rider confidence to try new moves with out the worry of losing time and ground.
The Naish Sigma kites offer the easiest relaunch in kiteboarding history.
The illustration above shows how the area in contact with the water has been greatly reduced, and how the kite is able to pivot off either ‘shoulder’ for relaunch.
Geo-Tech Design >
The Geo-Tech concept provides constant tension in the kites canopy by incorporating straight line segments in the leading edge. With the constant canopy tension, the overall foil profile is perfectly controlled and defined, which allows the kite to remain extremely stable through the entire range of depower and considerably increases the wind range.
Wind pressure is not necessary to maintain the canopy profile, and at low angles of attack Geo-Tech keeps the canopy from collapsing. By maintaining a consistent aerodynamic leading edge Geo-Tech provides a wrinkle free canopy, large depower range, and stability at broad angles of attack where historically kites with a large depower range have experienced distortion.
Combined with Sigma shape, Geo-Tech creates the most precise and controllable kites ever, which maintain this feeling and control through an amazingly broad wind range.

Depower Control Bar
Naish Universal Control Bar System
Build quality on this kite is superb as with my previous Naish kites. The ‘one pump’ system works well as expected.
Tested a deep water relaunch and I have to say even in 4-6 feet swells the kite was easy to get off the water.
