Naish Quad-Tex Kite Canopy Material

Posted September 19, 2017 by Naish Kiteboarding

The result of the collaboration between Teijin and Naish, Quad-Tex is the strongest, most responsive kite canopy material available on the market. Developed and tested over the course of 3 years, Quad-Tex turns the traditional method of canopy construction on its head. While other canopies start with a base layer of polyester yarn, Quad-Tex takes a “strength-first” approach constructing the matrix with 4x-reinforced ripstop, then balancing the grid with the optimal strength-to-weight ratio for heavy-duty rip protection. High tenacity polyester yarn fills out the framework and is reinforced with Teijin’s high-grade resin for increased water-resistance and longevity. Averaging 30% stronger, with the least elongation and stretch, Quad-Tex consistently outperforms all other leading canopy materials on the market. The result is a more rigid, responsive kite that you can count on day in and day out. Find out more at
