TARGET: Designed for competition freestyle, power freeriding and unhooked waveriding.
The Torch flies quickly through the air and will depower easily with a quick check of the board edge. The power is delivered smoothly, with depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of the kite's ability to fly fast. Hooked in or unhooked, the riding is effortless and precise. The position of the struts makes the kite stiffer in the air, for an even more precise handling.
The new Shift Control System is set up to support the arc and to provide easy water relaunch and excellent feel. New elements for 2012 are: a new covered single-line depower, above-the-bar trim adjustment and a new, comfortable color-coded EVA grip.
The Torch is equally at home winning heats on the world stage, as it is ripping up your home beach. The 2012 Torch features refinements to all elements of the package: new bar, reinforcements, strut positions and a shorter arc.
