Naish’s Matador LT enters its second generation with several technical details and shaping upgrades. The LT remains compact, lightweight and powerful. It is still targeted towards wing-foilers that want to use as small a wing as possible for the prevailing wind conditions, focusing on riding swells and waves. It maintains the same outline and dihedral as the original, with its slightly pointed leading edge at the centre and pronounced dihedral across the wingspan. But the new LT has more pre-load in its windowless canopy than its predecessor, creating even better “sheet-in-and-go” power with a more balanced and linear power delivery, less front-hand pressure, and improved top-end stability. This creates a wing that drives upwind well, even with heavy riders, then flags in neutral with amazing stability and balance for riding waves, swells, and downwinders.
The firm, rounded and ergonomic handles provide just the right amount of rigidity while still being soft to the touch. New rubber inlay grip stripes make the handles even more comfortable and require less rider effort to hang on to, making them easy on the hands.
Overall the new Matador LT is a lightweight, easy-handling, powerful wing with great flagging characteristics that provides exceptional riding for all skill levels.
