The position of the struts on the 2012 Naish Torch Kite makes the kite stiffer in the air, for an even more precise handling.
The 2012 Naish Torch Kite is equally at home winning heats on the world stage, as it is ripping up your home beach. The 2012 Naish Torch Kite features refinements to all elements of the package: reinforcements, strut positions and a shorter arc.

2012 Naish Torch Kite Designers Notes
What's New: This year the idea was to make the kite more stable and to add stiffness to the arc. To do this, we looked to the success of the Park and shortened the entire arc and moved both side struts down. This allows the center of the kite to be more full. The lower strut allows for a stiffer profile on the wing tip, making the kite more rigid in the air.
The Result: You get a kite that has a crisper feel in the bar and is more responsive to bar input. This makes overpowered riding smoother. The turns are also better, as the kite shoots back up faster in the kite loop, providing extra pull to land without making a hole in the ocean.

•Super thin LE and 3 struts for quick, direct turning
•Amazing low-end performance
2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Performance
The diameter of the leading edge is smaller than on an ordinary 12m kite. This creates extremely low drag and boosted torsional dynamics to produce a kite that cuts through the air at break-neck speeds without the usual sluggish feel of a bigger kite.
In mid and low AR kites, a three strut design allows steering forces to affect a larger portion of the canopy, re-sulting in quick response and faster turns.
Turning Axis-Mid Pivot Turn
The central turning axis allows medium pivot turns and allows the release of power as needed. This is one of the key characteristics that make it both a great all-around kite as well as ideal for wave riding.
The profile’s shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the tips. This optimizes performance for the different stages flight.
Steep Profile Shape
The new profile shape utilizes the power of the kite more efficiently for better pops and jumps. This also makes the jumping pattern more vertical, as opposed to horizontal, giving you more vertical power and less horizontal drag.
The aggressive profile shape forces the tips of the kite out of the water and to the edge of the window, so there is virtually no work to be done by the rider to get the kite back up in the air.
2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Construction
Additional valve reinforcements were added to firmly fix the patch to the bladder. One from below and one from above. We’ve also purpose-designed a new bladder adhesive to suit the unique requirements of kite construction.
Bridel Attachment Point
Internally constructed, the leading edge has twice as many reinforcement patches. That means larger LE impact loads resistance and additional protection from the constant wear and abrasion.
Molded LE Guards
Molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic and effectively protect the kite from all your outrageous wipeouts.
We know you like to ride hard. That’s why the Trigger has 25% more Insignia Tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE. You can be confident this kite will endure even the toughest impact.
Unique Dacron material used for the leading edge, struts and tips is considerably lighter, but efficiently stronger - thanks to our tried-and-tested, innovative box threading design, which has a more rigid construction and allows for a tighter weave.
Teijin Techno Force
Our top of the line Techno Force canopy material has been a mainstay of our product line for 4 years and has proven to be superior to anything else on the market.
Mad 2 Air Flor System
The specially-designed valve pieces on the Trigger’s one-pump system are 100% foolproof. Trust us, you’ll be pumped up and ready to ride in no time!

2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Q & A
What is your biggest accomplishment in the Fat Lady?
Three years ago when we first set out to make a light wind kite, we were determined to uphold our reputation of producing fast-turning, dynamic kites. The biggest challenge presented by the Fat Lady was the combination of the kite’s dominating size and the light wind conditions it was going to perform in. After extensive testing in light wind conditions, we designed an especially narrow leading edge. This creates the lively, dynamic ride we were looking for, but it wasn’t easy. We went through extensive engineering and first-hand testing before we produced a light wind kite that delivered usable power, a pronounced pop and efficient upwind performance.
What makes the Fat Lady different from most other light wind kites?
Almost everybody who tests the Fat Lady for the first time is blown away by her quick turning abilities. This is definitely the thing that sets it apart from other light wind kites. This kite genuinely surprises a lot of people when they discover they can perform all their ordinary tricks on such a big kite and in relatively light conditions. We don’t claim we can reproduce the same liveliness as you’d find in a 10m kite in the bigger model, but the Fat Lady proves you can still have bucket-loads of fun with a 17m kite.
What special features did you use?
It’s only when you get up close to the Fat Lady that you truly start to understand just how narrow the LE is. Compared to the Trigger, the LE is the same diameter as the 12m! As a result, there is a huge reduction in drag, creating a much smoother ride. The 3-strut design also isn’t common on a 17m kite and this contributes to the remarkable feeling of agility in the kite and its peerless qualities in performance.
