The Pivot is the perfect fit for anyone who wants to do-it-all with one kite. This year, we have made performance changes that benefit the every day kiteboarder and pro riders alike. The new draft is optimized for performance based on kite size, providing more control and increased wind range. Aspect ratios have been fine tuned for a more comfortable all-around user experience. Utilizing Quad-Tex ripstop canopy material, we’ve been able to design a new Dacron construction on the wingtips to give improved responsiveness with less weight. After almost a decade of development, the Pivot continues to be at the top of the food chain.

NEW – SWIFT TIPS

The new wingtip construction is 30% stronger than previous versions while being lighter and using less dacron. The canopy now extends all the way to the Leading Edge, giving the kite a more streamlined look and performance benefits such as more direct turning

PROGRESSIVE PROFILE

Evolving the profile along the wingspan allows the center sections of the kite to generate power while the flatter tips minimize drag and allow for faster turning

DIAGONAL LOAD SEAM

Distributes kite tension for a more powerful and well-balanced kite

RADIAL SEGMENTED ARC

Short linear segments accurately form the kite’s arch – the kites have multiple panels to reduce sharp edges on the kite’s arc

BAG

Included bag fits your kite and helps carry all necessary accessories

QUAD-TEX RIPSTOP FABRIC

The Quad-Tex Ripstop fabric is an extremely durable material, creating a strong and stiff canopy. Quad-Tex withstands punishing conditions while maintaining high-performance characteristics over the long term.

HT PLUS SEAM

Our high-tenacity thread strengthens the leading edge along the seam, allowing you to confidently inflate your kite to a higher pressure for better flying performance.

MOLDED STRUT ENDS

The molded strut ends provide additional reinforcements to protect the struts from natural wear and tear.

ARAMID PATCHES

Provides protection and reinforcement to the seams on the leading edge

ONE POINT INFLATION SYSTEM

Our one point inflation system provides quick and easy inflation and deflation of the kite

SURELOCK VALVE

Streamlined valve and pump hose locks to the valve

LUFF STRUT

The luff strut provides an adaptable framework for better low-end power

TRAILING EDGE FLUTTER DISPERSION

The trailing edge has a 2-ply QuadTex construction with flutter dispersing triangles gives a tighter canopy and enhanced durability

THERMOFORMED BUMPERS

Protect your kite from wear and tear when launching and landing

BRIDLE ADJUSTMENT SETTING

This adjustment setting allows you to fly a bigger kite in higher winds comfortably and with control, or choose a more consistent low end power

“FOR 2024, OUR MAIN GOAL WAS TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE AND CONTROL OF OUR BELOVED PIVOT, WHILE NOT LOSING WHAT MAKES IT SUCH A GREAT ALL AROUND KITE. TO ACHIEVE THIS, WE BROKE DOWN THE RANGE SIZE BY SIZE, AND ANALYSED WHAT MAKES EACH SIZE SPECIAL, AND HONED IN ON THAT. IN DOING SO, NOW EACH KITE HAS OPTIMISED DESIGNS, BRINGING THE PERFECT BALANCE THROUGHOUT THE RANGE. THE MAIN GAINS WERE MADE IN THE OVERALL CONTROL AND FLYING SPEED OF THE PIVOT, MEANING THE 2024 PIVOT IS A HUGE STEP FORWARDS AND OUR BEST YET. NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, THE 2024 PIVOT MAKES YOU A BETTER KITEBOARDER FROM DAY ONE.”
