ALANA – Women’s Freeride-Freestyle-Wave
Sizes: 6m, 8m, 10m, 12m

Key Features:

– Static Bridle Platform = Improves forward flying & acceleration out of turns + direct bar feel
– Reduced Diameter Struts = Improves low-end power & handling + lightweight
– Responsive handling
– Easy water relaunch
– Unmatched versatility
OVERVIEW

The Alana is designed for women riders looking for an all-around kite with freeriding, freestyle and wave riding versatility.

Based on the Park design, the Alana features a Swept Compact C outline and three-strut shape for stability, responsive steering, maximum depower and easy water relaunch.

The Alana’s profile is the same as the Park for consistent pull over a wide range of wind speeds. It also features a Static Bridle Platform for forward flying, acceleration out of turns, stability, instant response and direct bar feel.

The Alana is the ideal kite for women that demand performance in a wide range of conditions.
TECHNOLOGY

NEW Static Bridle Platform
Eliminates the pulley and keeps the kite stable and driving forward.

Compact C
The Compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal re-launch capabilities.

Power Foil Canopy
The Power Foil Canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.

Evolutive Profile
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.

Radial Segmented Arc
The Radial Segmented shape uses short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s arc.

Low Drag Wing Tip
This wing tip geometry reduces the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, which greatly reduces drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.

Octopus Inflation System
This proven, quick and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. Naish’s exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure in the struts does not change during turns.

Solid Frame Construction
Every strut is attached to a frame of heavy duty Dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.

Radial Load Distribution
All wing tips are designed with seams running parallel to the load generated by the flying lines. These seams carry most of the load and spread it higher into the canopy. This construction avoids fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.

Anti-stiction Window
The wing tip features a flow-through window, which reduces static friction and allows for easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly.
Alana Control System

Women’s Performance 4-line Control System

Designed specifically for women, the Alana Control System features a reduced sized Smart Loop and bar throw. The bar width has also been reduced for more forgiving steering on smaller sized kites.

It also features a reduced diameter bar with a new Memory Core for a comfortable, ergonomic grip. The new V2 Bar Center has been re-designed, providing smoother line entry to reduce wear and tear.

The Vario Bar End Adjustment allows the rider to change the bar length from 16” to 18” (40 to 45 cm). The Low-V swivel with an integrated pulley connects the front flying lines at the lowest configuration possible to keep lines straight and provide a front line flagging leash.

Key Features:

– NEW Reduced sized Smart Loop optimized for smaller riders
– NEW Reduced bar throw optimized for smaller riders
– NEW Reduced bar width for more forgiving steering on smaller sized kites
– NEW Memory Core for comfortable, ergonomic grip
– NEW V2 Bar Center provides smoother line entry to reduce wear & tear
– Smart Loop with below-the-bar trim adjustment
– Auto positioning Smart Loop
– Graduated trimline marking
– Low-V swivel front line connection
– Through-the-bar flagging line
– Premium safety leash with quick release
– Back flying line adjustment under floaters
– Powerflex bar ends & floaters
– Vario Bar End Adjustment = 16”-18” (40-45 cm)
