Custom Kitesurf Package Deal 2021

Custom Kitesurf Package Deal

We can put together any custom kitesurf package deal with the latest & greatest kit or if you’re trying to keep within a budget, we often have equipment from the previous year(s) which can save a fortune.

PLEASE DON’T PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT, IT IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. 

We always make sure we offer the most competition prices available on any brand of equipment.

We, along with our experienced coaches, will be sure to suggest the most suitable equipment for YOU, rather than what’s in stock and needs selling. Not every kite or board is suitable for each individual, it’s a very personal sport, everyone is different and it’s expensive to make changes in 2 months time because it doesn’t work for you or doesn’t fit properly.

It’s always our suggestion to come in store so you are able to try items on and see them in the flesh, but we realise for some people this isn’t realistic which is why we offer a next day delivery service on most our products and a free returns / exchange policy.

We know kitesurfing can be expensive, which is why we also offer finance over a 12 month period to break down the outlay. The good news is that once you have your custom kitesurf package, there’s very little else to purchase and the sport is very cheap.

If you’ve found a quote elsewhere, we’ll beat it! contact us for full details.

North Reach Kite 2022

North Reach Kite 2022 – North Kiteboarding

Now with FREE 1 hour private lesson or Tricktionary (the ultimate progression book!) if you’re further afield with every North Reach Kite 2022.

north reach 2022

The North Reach is described as ‘The ultimate desert island kite, the Reach is back and it’s lighter than ever’

Is it marketing spiel or is it the truth? We take a look….

The North Reach kite 2022 has no boundaries with a lively and playful 3-strut design and unparalleled versatility and wind range.

It’s even lighter construction excels in lightwind, foil and surf, while the snappy, responsive steering and power delivery give rise to great boosting, looping and freestyle.

WHAT THEY SAY:

We tested the 2022 model early in it’s release and gave it a thorough pasting in the hands of a few students during lessons, and were really pleasantly surprised at how well it performed. It’s lightweight which sometimes means durability takes a back seat, but the North kites really are made well and we’re yet to see one be damaged in any way.

In the hands of a beginner it’s stable, really easy to relaunch, has a huge wind range and we could easily teach someone on the very first day of their kitesurfing lessons, it really is that easy to use.

BUT, North have managed to do what few are able to, and produce a kite which still has loads of performance.  The leading edge diameter is slender so it’s quick through the air which means it’s great on a foil and good for boosting while being efficient upwind. These attributes usually mean it’s awfully unstable and terrible at drifting down the line on a surfboard and constantly stalls or falls out the sky, but North have done a fantastic job at managing to create something that excels in literally every department.

The kite really is a one kite does everything, the ‘desert island kite’

 

Along with the F One Bandit and Duotone Evo, this has to be up there with these best all rounders on the market.

We see the North Reach 2022 being hugely popular and we’ll have plenty of demo kites available so come and give them a try.

 

North Reach 2022 Product Information

NEW HIGHEST QUALITY SHORT RESPONSIVE BRIDLE

Our new low-profile, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling. The end result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling. New tuning of the short responsive bridle gives the Reach quick, exponential depower, allowing you to ride it in an even wider range of conditions.

NEW LIGHTWEIGHT BLADDERS IN EVERY SIZE  

Lighter weight bladders have now been adopted into every size in the range. This additional weight reduction helps the new 2022 Reach fly more efficiently, and improves performance in lighter winds.

NEW LIGHTER WEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

Perfect for foiling and lightwind twintip riding, the Reach has a stable and balanced fuller profile for predictable, consistent power delivery in every condition, and exceptional performance at the low-end. The lightest kite in our range, the Reach’s lighter weight 3-strut construction and more powerful draft-forward profile helps you get up and going in light wind conditions.

NEW

NEW reduced construction weight helps the 2022 Reach fly more efficiently with even better performance in lighter winds. We’ve kept the weight down for optimal steering and performance without compromising strength or durability, using a small two-ply of canopy along the trailing edge instead of heavier Dacron materials. In the larger sizes we’ve also used a lighter dacron in all of the leading edges and struts.

BOOSTS AND LOOPS WITH A SMOOTH RELIABLE CATCH  

The Reach has superb loft and hangtime with a compact steering radius, thanks to its medium aspect ratio design with wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle. During a loop, many kites will pause before they climb back up, but the Reach has a smooth, consistent catch and doesn’t hesitate to come back around.

MASSIVE WINDRANGE AND UPWIND DRIVE  

A powerful draft-forward profile, in combination with optimised profile transition panels, give the Reach a very smooth and efficient profile entry and upwind drive.

INCREDIBLY POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT  

The Reach has a slightly higher aspect ratio design for superb loft and hangtime, while its wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle help to maintain a compact steering radius, ideal for kite-looping. During kiteloops the Reach has a smooth, consistent catch and doesn’t hesitate to come back around.

DIRECT AND RESPONSIVE STEERING  

Tactile handling with light bar pressure and steering impulse for a fast response and tight turning radius. The quick responsive steering and neutral static balance help you fire up your performance in the surf, without any surprises. The Reach drifts well and doesn’t fall over, front-stall or back-stall. The bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip, allowing you to fine tune the kite’s characteristics to your personal preference.

CONFIDENT RELAUNCH WITH SWEPT DESIGN  

The moderate leading edge diameter medium high aspect design allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and provides additional buoyancy, helping the kite to release quickly from the water in even the lightest conditions.

PRECISE DRAFT-FORWARD PROFILE  

The draft-forward profile, in combination with optimised profile transition panels, give the Reach a very smooth and efficient profile entry and upwind drive. For the Reach we’ve developed a longitudinal profile control that connects to the leading edge seam to ensure a precise profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible, creating a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy. This results in an even more aerodynamic and efficient airflow and less turbulence.

PROGRESSIVE FREESTYLE MEDIUM HIGH AR  

A forgiving kite with pop when you need it for freestyle manoeuvres. The medium high aspect ratio, combined with a powerful profile, gives the North Reach 2022 explosive pop. Good pop helps generate line slack for handle passes – simply load up, edge hard and pop off the water for easy Freestyle progression.

PREMIUM TEIJIN D2 TECHNO FORCE CANOPY

D2 Ripstop Fabric by Teijin. Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and endurance. Teijin Techno Force has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.

DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION  

Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protects the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.

KEVLAR REINFORCED STRUT SYSTEM WITH BRIDLE DEFLECTORS  

For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge. Bridle deflectors on the leading edge prevent the control lines catching on the struts.

HYPERFLOW RAPID SINGLE-POINT INFLATION 

High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adaptor required.

INCREDIBLE STABILITY FOR FOIL AND LIGHTWIND  

Boasting predictable, consistent power delivery in every condition, the North Reach 2022 has exceptional performance at the low-end – especially at slower speeds in lighter wind. Its moderate leading edge diameter provides additional buoyancy, helping the kite to release quickly from the water in even the lightest conditions.

WELL-BALANCED TACTILE SURF HANDLING   

Quick responsive steering and neutral static balance helps you fire up your performance in the surf, without any

FREERIDE / BIG AIR

Tested by nature and proven on the podium. 2020 Red Bull King of the Air Jesse Richman’s winning kite.

“Megaloops on a 12? I have so much trust in this kite, in every condition.” – Nick Jacobsen

North Orbit Kite 2021 – Our review

We used the Orbit a lot in 2020 as we have them available as demo kites all winter. We can hands down say that this kite has more lift than any kite on the market, or any kite we’ve ever used for that matter. They’re powerful for their size and in the hands of almost any level of rider, they’ll jump higher than they’ve ever done in the past.

The kites are quite powerful for their size as they’re reasonably flat so you can compare them to 0.5 – 1m bigger sizes.

The 2021 model is more refined, more stable and easier to use for less advanced riders, but it still has the lift! It’s no surprise that it was at the top of the King Of The Air and we expect it to be so again this coming year.

We can’t wait to get out on it again in the coming winter storms!

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Red Bull King of the Air Winner
  • Phenomenal loft and hangtime
  • Predictable in the unpredictable

WHERE IT THRIVES

  • Halfway between worlds

Committing to overpowered airs and megaloops in gusty conditions demands an unwavering trust in your kite. Our iconic premier 5-strut kite, delivers incredible top-end control and allows you to hold down more power than any other kite per square metre. Big jumps. Big hang time. Big wind range. This kite was designed to rocket you upwind fast, with effortless steering. Extreme boosting and hangtime guaranteed to take your breath away. Tested by nature, proven on the podium. The North Orbit 2021 has your back when the rules of gravity don’t apply. For 2021 we’ve modified the bridle for a more playful feel, and further improved the stability, while maintaining the kite’s high-end performance and kiteloop recovery. We’ve also strategically replaced the heavy dacron with lighter weight reinforcement material. So the kite feels even lighter and more responsive.

 

 

North Orbit Kite 2021 Features

PHENOMENAL LOFT AND HANGTIME

The Orbit has a wide flattened 2-stage arc supported by a reinforced exo-skeleton frame, ensuring glide that is guaranteed to take your breath away. The North Orbit 2021 makes the most use of its projected area. It has the best hangtime and power delivery for its size.

NEW LOW-DRAG, NO-PULLEY BRIDLE LINES

The NEW bridling provides an extremely direct feel in both bar pressure and steering initiation, with more intuitive feedback from the bar in both directions so you’ll always know where your kite is. The new bridling enables more responsive steering and pivoty turns, limiting the amount of power that is produced. You generate less speed in your bottom turns, and can ride closer to the pocket of the wave. Our NEW high quality spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling. The end result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling.

THINNER DIAMETER STRUTS

The Orbit’s five struts are surprisingly slender when inflated, helping to keep the weight of the kite down while providing canopy stability.

POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT 2-STAGE ARC DESIGN

Our two-stage arc design incorporates a flattened, more open arc shape through the central power-producing region of the kite, where the energy is most useful for you performance-wise. This gives you the highest amount of projected area and projected aspect ratio. It means the Orbit has the best hangtime and power delivery for its size. Pulling the wingtips in towards the rider gives the kite more responsive steering and the smoothest transition of the profile attack angles when it’s under load.

STABLE 5-STRUT PERFORMANCE

When you’re chasing a storm the Orbit provides incredible top-end control. The five strut design gives it an incredible amount of stability and wind range. You have a lot more control over the canopy movement at low attack angles. The North Orbit 2021 has the widest wind range of all our kites. The fixed, no-pulley bridle is a little bit longer, and combined with its placement on the kite gives us a very stable platform in all conditions.

NEW LIGHTER WEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

In 2021 we’ve replaced the heavier dacron on the trailing edge and at the very leading edge with a NEW  lighter weight strategic canopy reinforcement. This adds strength and elongation control, protecting the lighter inner main canopy body and producing a durable kite. It can hold its profile for increased performance and lift. Because the new fabric is more conforming to the inflated structure, it also helps creates a smoother, cleaner entry on the profiles.

NEW MODIFIED BRIDLING AND LIGHT BAR PRESSURE

In 2021 we’ve modified the bridle for controlled response and even faster steering. It gives the kite a more playful feel with increased depower. Chief Kite Designer Pat Goodman worked closely with team riders, in particular Marc Jacobs, to put the kite through hardcore testing in a lot of wind. This enabled us to further improve the stability, the feedback and the steering behaviour, and to give the kite a lighter, more responsive feel.

REDUCED LEADING-EDGE DIAMETER WITH SWEEP

Gives the Orbit a low drag profile, making it sit further forwards in the wind window for incredible upwind performance. The high aspect ratio swept design allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and easy roll to relaunch.

AERODYNAMIC PROFILE TRANSITION PANELS

We’ve added an extra panel that connects to the leading edge seam to ensure a precise lateral profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible, creating a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy so the profiles are more uniform throughout the entire wing. The panels reduce inconsistencies in the profile, resulting in a smoother, more efficient kite, with more aerodynamic airflow and less turbulence.

FREERIDE / BIG AIR

Tested by nature and proven on the podium. 2020 Red Bull King of the Air Jesse Richman’s winning kite.

“Megaloops on a 12? I have so much trust in this kite, in every condition.” – Nick Jacobsen

The North Orbit 2022 focuses on performance freeride, big air and kiteloops. This ‘King of Kites’ guarantees unprecedented hangtime and is also the most recent winner of the King of the Air. A super accessible performance kite for all kitesurfing levels that is guaranteed to take you to unknown heights.

  • Big Air | Freeride | kiteloop
  • Mega hang time
  • Five strut design
  • Lighter in weight
  • Direct steering behaviour

The third version of the North Orbit needs no introduction. This kite has earned its place at the absolute top of the big air and freeride kites on the market and can call itself proudly the current winner of the King of the Air (2020). Perhaps that is why the North Orbit 2022 is called the ‘king of kites’ by some.

The North Orbit 2022 has been improved and refined in several areas, taking it even further away from its competitors. That the North Orbit 2022 will take you to greater heights and your ‘next-level’ is not even a question, but a certainty!

DESIGN

The North Orbit 2022 stays true to its iconic five strut construction and super clean North design in three different colors: Marine Green, Pacific Blue and Red Sea. Of course, the beloved characteristics have also been preserved in this 2022 model of the North Orbit.

With the North Orbit 2022 you will still be able to jump to unkown heights with great ease. The open 5-strut design ensures that you slowly land back on earth with a lot of hang time. Plenty of time for single, double, or even three double backrolls. You think of it, the North Orbit 2022 will make it possible! Are you a more advanced kitesurfer and ready for your first kiteloops? Even then you will be surprised by the performance of the North Orbit 2022.

This five strut kite is surprisingly fast and pulls very comfortable kiteloops where you don’t have to worry that the North Orbit 2022 will drop you from the sky. Before you know it, the North Orbit 2022 complete the loop and is ready to catch you.

DETAILS

The upgrades of the new North Orbit 2022 are found in the details, but it is precisely the details that make the North Orbit 2022 such a great kite. That is why the bridle setup has been adjusted a little bit. In addition, the overall weight of the North Orbit 2022 has been reduced. This is due to a new lightweight N-75 construction and a lighter bladder material.

The combination of the modified bridle setup and the lighter weight of the new North Orbit 2022 improves the overall performance of the kite. You will also notice that the new 2022 Orbit steers faster, catches you better after a kiteloop and flies more easily in low-wind conditions. But of course the North Orbit loves strong winds and gigantic big air the most!

MATERIALS

Just like last year, the new North Orbit 2022 is made of a premium Teijin D2 Techno Force ripstop canopy. You can easily adjust the bar pressure of the Orbit on the tips. To extend the life of the Orbit, the Orbit is provided with Kevlar reinforcements in vulnerable places.

In short, are you looking for a kite with a focus on freeride, big air and kiteloops? Then the North Orbit 2022 is definitely a kite for you. The Orbit 2022 offers you more than enough hantime to add hooked tricks to your tricktionary and enough confidence to pull crazy kiteloops.

North Nova Surf Wing 2021

North Nova Surf Wing 2021

POWER UP

“The Nova helps me keep pushing boundaries. Jumping. Riding Waves. Landing backflips and 360s.” – Marley Franco

Maximum performance, minimum effort. No strings attached. Balanced and reactive, the Nova Wing generates more forward drive and upwind performance than anything you’ve ever ridden. At the heart of the Nova design is a super-stiff geometry for power and efficiency, enabling instant take-offs and a massive wind range. Intuitive transitions. Comfortable ergonomic handling. North have carefully positioned everything, from the XS Litevision panels to the low-profile handles, in the best place to trim the wing and make transitions safer and more intuitive. The tow-friendly wing shape with sweep and dihedral also helps keep it tracking when towing behind you on a wave. Whether your focus is on the flow of riding open ocean waves, carving or stomping out tricks, the North Nova Wing will help you make the most your local conditions. Load up. Pump up. Ride longer.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • GeoStrut controlled curvature exoskeleton
  • Radial panel cuts
  • XLT Joint large diameter connection

WHERE IT THRIVES

  • On and off the water

 

Includes
Wing, Wing Leash, Bag, Compression Strap, Repair Kit

 

North Nova Wing Features

 

GEOSTRUT CONTROLLED CURVATURE EXOSKELETON

The controlled curvature of the exoskeleton increases stiffness and performance, creating a more stable centre profile that can still depower and produce less lift when you’re towing the wing behind you riding waves. The concave side of the curve creates a stiffer frame, so there is less deflection and deformation in flight. The curved strut design also makes the wing more ergonomic and comfortable, bringing the forward handles closer to your body, and moving the rear handles away so you’re in a more natural position when sheeted in.

GRIPLOCK HANDLES AND INTUITIVE Y-HANDLES

Maintain a stiff and firm connection to your wing with ergonomic elliptical sandwich technology handles designed from a combination of multi-layer foam with reinforcement running through the centre. The internal reinforcement is sewn within the handle to the strut, creating a strong, wobble-free connection with just enough stiffness for the handle to maintain its shape. The elliptical/hexagonal foam shape is more twist-resistant to the webbing around it, and the softer webbing material is comfortable in your hands, has very little twist in the handle, but is still flexible enough to fold up and pack away easily. The low-profile handles are positioned in the prime location for centre of effort, and in the best place to trim the wing and make transitions more intuitive. The Y-handles allow you to move from kneeling to standing and perform transitions and tricks more intuitively.

PREMIUM TEIJIN D2 TECHNOFORCE CANOPY

High performance D2 Ripstop Fabric by Teijin. Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and endurance. Teijin TechnoForce has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.

DACRON CANOPY REINFORCEMENT

Chasing a stiffer rig, we moved to an ultra-strong Dacron canopy reinforcement that is different to that used in our kites and capable of high inflation pressure. We’ve also built stiffness into the design through the load distribution on the frame when it’s in flight.

DURALITE SCUFF GUARD

Durable STPU scuff protection on the wing tips and seams. This is the same fabric used in the DuraLite seam protection on our North Kites.

XLT JOINT LARGE DIAMETER CONNECTION

The extra-large T-Joint is the structural frame joining the leading edge and strut in the shape of the letter T. The T-joint has a larger diameter for optimum stiffness, enabling a lightweight and direct connection to the canopy without deformation to keep the profile flying in its intended shape.

wing surf

TOW-FRIENDLY DEPOWER

A soft knuckle-guard pad under the depower handle allows you to lock your knuckles up against the leading edge for extra stability when towing. A tow-friendly wing shape with sweep and dihedral also helps keep it tracking on the wave.

wing surf

KEVLAR STRUT CONNECTION

A biaxial kevlar (aramid) fibre layer provides internal strength and reinforcement to the connection between strut and leading edge. It is bias cut, so it can flex around the curvature of the strut, with a tight and accurate fit.

wing surf

LITEVISION XS SKYLITE PANELS

Safer XS skylite panels improve the rider’s field of vision – allowing you to see what’s downwind of you before transitions. The windows are positioned in just the right place for a safer riding experience, without adding unnecessary weight and complexity to the design.

wing surf

RADIAL PANEL CUTS

Radial cut panels at the end of the GeoStrut distribute large amounts of load across the canopy in defined load directions. The canopy is a woven fabric, least stable when loaded at 45 degrees to the thread line. Radial cut panels help align the stronger weave of the canopy to the stress pattern, creating a stronger, cleaner canopy with less external patching to prevent distortion and help keep the weight in check.

SURF/ STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

“When I’m on a wave all I have to think about is smacking the lip.” – Jesse Richman

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Two-stage arc with direct pivot steering
  • NEW evolved drift
  • NEW improved top end performance

WHERE IT THRIVES

  • Big waves, small waves and anything in between

Powerful, reactive and controllable, the North Carve 2021 provides instant drift with the flick of your wrist. This allows you to power on and off instantly, stay in the pocket for longer and out of the critical impact zone. Featuring a sensory pivot turn for control, and huge depower range, the Carve gives you the confidence to focus on surfing, in onshore to offshore, and anything in between. The strong surf-freestyle characteristics let you throw down strapless freestyle and perform lofty jumps with ease. Compared to the rest of our North range, the Carve sits further back in the wind window and enhances down the line drift. The Carve is perfect for carving and tucking into a barrel. 3 x Kitesurf World Champion Jalou Langeree’s kite of choice.

 

 

Kite Features

NEW EVOLVED DRIFT

New bridling ensures you’re able to maintain the drift when you’re sheeted in. The kite is responsive and goes down the line. But when it’s offshore or you’re riding overpowered, there’s now a lot more reaction from the kite when you sheet out.

NEW IMPROVED TOP END PERFORMANCE

Changes to the bridle have improved the top end wind range of the kite. We’ve traded a little from the bottom end for a considerable amount more top end depower. Now you can experience bigger jumps with better hang time in stronger conditions.

NEW LOW-DRAG, NO-PULLEY BRIDLE LINES

The NEW bridling provides an extremely direct feel in both bar pressure and steering initiation. More intuitive feedback from the bar in both directions so you’ll always know where your kite is. The new bridling enables more responsive steering and pivoty turns. This limits the amount of power that is produced so you generate less speed in your bottom turns, and can ride closer to the pocket of the wave. Our NEW high quality spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling. The end result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling.

HIGH BUOYANCY LEADING EDGE DIAMETER

For a rigid, stable kite frame which requires less inflation pressure. The high volume of air in the leading edge ensures the kite stays on top of the white water, and is not easily crushed by the waves. The larger leading edge diameter intentionally produces more drag and helps the kite sit deeper in the pocket. It also allows us to thin out the actual profile in the canopy itself. Less curve through the main body of the canopy and a larger leading edge design. Less canopy movement or deformation as you ride the kite at lower attack angles or sheeted out. The kite sits a little further back in the window, so that it will run with you as you steer towards it, rather than stop moving or flying forward and front stalling.

TWO-STAGE ARC WITH DIRECT PIVOT STEERING

The Carve’s responsive two-stage arc design enables tighter turns without excessive amounts of power. The two-stage arc allows the smooth curved efficient central region of the kite to produce power. The straighter wing tips provide a more dynamic steering response.

NEW EVOLVED DRIFT

The North Carve 2021 is a statically balanced, stable kite that resists nose diving. Down the line drift is most important when the wind’s onshore. The more offshore it gets, the more important it is for the kite to fly forward. New bridling ensures you’re able to maintain the drift when you’re sheeted in, the kite is responsive and goes down the line. But when it’s offshore or you’re riding overpowered, there’s now a lot more reaction from the kite when you sheet out, and its ability to fly forward is greatly improved.

NEW IMPROVED TOP END PERFORMANCE

Changes to the bridle have improved the top end wind range of the kite. It maintains linear power delivery and you can still ride it a size smaller, but we’ve traded a little from the bottom end for a considerable amount more top end depower. Now that we’ve improved the top end on this kite, you can experience bigger jumps with better hang time in stronger conditions. This gives strapless freestyle riders the ability to choose a bigger size kite than you’d use for wave riding yet still have the control and manageability you need for jumps and hang time for tricks.

TWO-STAGE ARC WITH DIRECT PIVOT STEERING

The Carve’s responsive two-stage arc design enables tighter turns without excessive amounts of power. As the arc shape becomes narrower the kite uses less of its projected area, giving it a smaller turning radius for tighter turns, and less pull or power in turns.

NEW LIGHTER SURF-TOUGH CONSTRUCTION

We’ve maintained the surf tough construction by replacing the dacron canopy panels with a NEW heavy duty lighter, stronger canopy reinforcement material. The reinforcement protects the lighter inner main canopy body and allows the kite to be more responsive in the steering and depower. This adds strength and elongation control, protecting the lighter inner main canopy body and producing a durable kite that can hold its profile for increased performance and lift. Because the new fabric is more conforming to the inflated structure, it creates a smoother, cleaner entry on the profiles.

REFINED AERODYNAMIC PROFILE TRANSITION PANELS

The profile transition panels on the North Carve 2021 ensure that as the leading edge expands, tension from the elongation doesn’t migrate into the canopy and a precise lateral profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible. This creates a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy so the profiles are more uniform throughout the entire wing. The panels reduce inconsistencies in the profile, resulting in a smoother, more efficient kite, with more aerodynamic airflow, drive and stability.

FAST-LAUNCHING SWEPT LEADING EDGE DESIGN

Allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and makes the kite easy to roll off the water during critical relaunch in the surf. The North Carve 2021 is not swept in the trailing edge like a bow kite, but it has a lot of curvature when viewed from the side, and the wingtips are not particularly wide. This puts a lot of the usable area in the center of the kite, rather than in the wing tip.

So even though the North Carve 2021 is lower aspect, it is still efficient for its size, and more importantly, the relaunch is super-quick. With less leading edge on the water it doesn’t lay flat, so for fast relaunch in most cases you don’t have to pull the rear line, simply rotate the bar. This really helps if you’re riding waves and need to relaunch your kite quickly when a set’s coming.

DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION

Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protects the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.

PERSONALISED PERFORMANCE TUNING OPTIONS

Bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip. This allows you to fine tune the kite’s characteristics to your personal preference.

The chase is on – Powerful, reactive and controllable, the Carve powers on and off instantly, so you can stay in the pocket for longer and out of the critical impact zone. Featuring a sensory pivot turn for control and huge depower range. The Carve gives you the confidence to focus on surfing – onshore, offshore and anything in between. Strong surf-freestyle characteristics help you perform strapless tricks and lofty jumps with ease, and enhanced down-the-line drift makes this versatile kite perfect for carving and tucking into a barrel.

For 2022 we’ve further reduced the weight and improved the behavior of the kite. Our new Active Load Distribution Bridle system is fine-tuned for the most direct pivot steering possible, and delivers a faster livelier feel, greater stability and wind range. The lighter weight surf-tough construction delivers improved static balance and light wind performance in surf and foil  conditions. And we’ve introduced a new lighter weight bladder material in sizes 9m and above.

North Carve 2022 Features:  

  • NEW finely-tuned Active Load Distribution Bridle System – Structurally designed so each tow point and cascade is individually controlled but interconnected as one unit, the new Carve bridling allows for loads to be more precisely distributed from the wing tip to the centre of the kite.  This has enabled us to focus the loading on the leading edge for the most direct pivot steering possible – limiting the amount of power that is produced so you generate less speed in your bottom turns and can ride closer to the pocket of the wave.With the new bridle the Carve flies faster. It also FEELS faster and livelier in the air because the bar pressure, steering impulse and pull from the harness are in harmony.
    The Carve provides an extremely direct feel in both bar pressure and steering initiation, with more intuitive feedback from the bar in both directions, so you’ll always know where your kite is.
  • NEW lighter weight surf-tough construction – For 2022 we’ve further reduced the weight of the kite for improved static balance and lightwind performance, without affecting the strength and durability. This re-engineered lighter construction helps with the drift and behaviour of the kite and reduces any tendency to front stall in lightwind conditions.
    The surf-tough exo-skeletal reinforcement still completely surrounds the inner canopy, with extra wide reinforcements at strut ends. This adds strength and elongation control, protects the lighter inner main canopy body, and allows the kite to be more responsive in the steering and depower. The result is a durable kite that can hold its profile shape for increased performance and drift.
  • Improved wind range – The new bridle load distribution combines with the Carve’s larger leading-edge diameter and low aspect ratio design for improved stability, and improved wind range. We’ve maintained the linear power delivery, ensuring the kite is rock solid when it needs to be. Strapless freestyle riders can go higher with better hangtime, yet still have the control and manageability you need for jumps and tricks.
    Because the Carve has such impressive power and efficiency, we still recommend going a size smaller for wave riding. So, when everyone’s on a 7m, you can pull out a 6m. A smaller kite means even less weight, faster steering and better drift.
  • Evolved drift – The Carve is a statically balanced, stable kite that resists nose diving. Down the line drift is most important when the wind is onshore. The more offshore it gets, the more important it is for the kite to fly forward. The Carve’s bridling ensures you’re able to maintain the drift when you’re sheeted in, the kite is responsive and goes down the line. But when it’s offshore or you’re riding overpowered, there’s more reaction from the kite when you sheet out, and its ability to fly forward is greatly improved.
  • Two-stage arc with direct pivot steering – The Carve’s responsive two-stage arc design enables tighter turns without excessive amounts of power. The two-stage arc allows the smooth-curved efficient central region of the kite to produce power, while straighter wing tips provide a more dynamic steering response. As the arc shape becomes narrower the kite uses less of its projected area, giving it a smaller turning radius for tighter turns, and less pull or power in turns. The Carve, a narrower span kite, is fast in flight, with less power overall.
  • Highest quality low-drag, no-pulley bridle lines –  Highest quality spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling. The result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling.
  • Refined aerodynamic profile transition panels –  The profile transition panels ensure that as the leading edge expands, tension from the elongation doesn’t migrate into the canopy and a precise lateral profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible. This creates a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy, so the profiles are more uniform throughout the entire wing. The panels reduce inconsistencies in the profile, resulting in a smoother, more efficient kite, with more aerodynamic airflow, drive and stability.
  • Fast-launching swept leading edge design – Allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and makes the kite easy to roll off the water during critical relaunch in the surf. The Carve is not swept in the trailing edge like a bow kite, but it has a lot of curvature when viewed from the side, and the wingtips are not particularly wide. This puts a lot of the usable area in the center of the kite, rather than in the wing tip.
    So even though the Carve is lower aspect, it is still efficient for its size, and more importantly, the relaunch is super-quick. With less leading edge on the water it doesn’t lay flat, so for fast relaunch in most cases you don’t have to pull the rear line, simply rotate the bar. This really helps if you’re riding waves and need to relaunch your kite quickly when a set’s coming.
  • High buoyancy leading edge diameter – For a rigid, stable kite frame which requires less inflation pressure. The high volume of air in the leading edge ensures the kite stays on top of the white water and is not easily crushed by the waves. The larger leading-edge diameter intentionally produces more drag and helps the kite sit deeper in the pocket. It also allows us to thin out the actual profile in the canopy itself.
    With less curve through the main body of the canopy and a larger leading-edge design, you end up with less canopy movement or deformation as you ride the kite at lower attack angles or sheeted out. The kite sits a little further back in the window, so that it will run with you as you steer towards it, rather than stop moving or flying forward and front stalling.
  • DuraLite seam protection – Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces and protects the stitching along the struts and leading-edge seams.
  • Personalised performance tuning options – Bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip, allowing you to fine tune the kite’s characteristics to your personal preference.
  • Kevlar reinforced strut system with bridle deflectors – For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge. Bridle deflectors on the leading edge prevent the control lines catching on the struts.
  • NEW HyperFlow rapid single-point inflation – New ergonomic high volume single point inflation system with large diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. The cap and valve base have been updated for more comfortable opening and closing in colder conditions (when your fingers are freezing). The bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed.
  • NEW recycled PET kite bag – Go Green. 33 recycled plastic bottles go into making every single North kite bag. Recycled PET Fabric meets Global Recycling Standard.
  • High Performance high tenacity ripstop canopy – All our kites are manufactured using high tenacity polyester yarn canopy material for lightness, high tear strength, zero porosity and longevity.

SURF/ STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

“When I’m on a wave all I have to think about is smacking the lip.” – Jesse Richman

TWO-STAGE ARC WITH DIRECT PIVOT STEERING

The Carve’s responsive two-stage arc design enables tighter turns without excessive amounts of power. As the arc shape becomes narrower the kite uses less of its projected area, giving it a smaller turning radius for tighter turns, and less pull or power in turns.

NEW LIGHTER SURF-TOUGH CONSTRUCTION

We’ve maintained the surf tough construction by replacing the dacron canopy panels with a NEW heavy duty lighter, stronger canopy reinforcement material. The reinforcement protects the lighter inner main canopy body and allows the kite to be more responsive in the steering and depower. This adds strength and elongation control, protecting the lighter inner main canopy body and producing a durable kite that can hold its profile for increased performance and lift. Because the new fabric is more conforming to the inflated structure, it creates a smoother, cleaner entry on the profiles.

REFINED AERODYNAMIC PROFILE TRANSITION PANELS

The profile transition panels on the North Carve 2022 ensure that as the leading edge expands, tension from the elongation doesn’t migrate into the canopy and a precise lateral profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible. This creates a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy so the profiles are more uniform throughout the entire wing. The panels reduce inconsistencies in the profile, resulting in a smoother, more efficient kite, with more aerodynamic airflow, drive and stability.

FAST-LAUNCHING SWEPT LEADING EDGE DESIGN

Allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and makes the kite easy to roll off the water during critical relaunch in the surf.
The North Carve 2022 is not swept in the trailing edge like a bow kite, but it has a lot of curvature when viewed from the side, and the wingtips are not particularly wide. This puts a lot of the usable area in the centre of the kite, rather than in the wing tip.

So even though the North Carve 2021 is lower aspect, it is still efficient for its size, and more importantly, the relaunch is super-quick. With less leading edge on the water it doesn’t lay flat, so for fast relaunch in most cases you don’t have to pull the rear line, simply rotate the bar. This really helps if you’re riding waves and need to relaunch your kite quickly when a set’s coming.

DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION

Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protects the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.

PERSONALISED PERFORMANCE TUNING OPTIONS

Bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip. This allows you to fine tune the kite’s characteristics to your personal preference.

North Kiteboarding Carve 2020

North Kiteboarding Carve 2020

Perfect condition, used just once for a magazine test

“The North Carve has an incredibly steady and consistent pull, with a super smooth drift so when I’m on a wave all I have to think about is smacking the lip.” – Jesse Richman

We tested the North Carve in Dakhla when they were first released, and the speed that it turns just blew us away. Nothing really compares. This is a really nice feature on a wave kite as the last thing you want is something that is sluggish that you’re waiting for when smacking a lip. The build quality is fantastic and overall feel is great. It flies well with the North Bar as it’s soft on the hand and arms, so you can concentrate on surfing the waves.

It’s worth noting that these kites are quite powerful for their size, especially compared to most wave specific kites which tend to be less powerful size for size than freeride or big air kites.

WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

Powerful, reactive and controllable, the Carve provides instant drift with the flick of your wrist, allowing you to power on and off instantly, stay in the pocket for longer and out of the critical impact zone. Featuring a sensory pivot turn for control and huge depower range, the Carve gives you the confidence to focus on surfing, in onshore to offshore, and anything in between, while strong surf-freestyle characteristics let you throw down strapless freestyle and perform lofty jumps with ease. Compared to the rest of our North range, the Carve sits further back in the wind window and enhances down the line drift, perfect for carving and tucking into a barrel. 3 x Kitesurf World Champion Jalou Langeree’s kite of choice.

Fine tune the turning speed of your kite. The North Navigator 2022 is available in three sizes 50-55cm (L), 45-50cm (M) and NEW bar size 38-43cm (S) – suited particularly to small freeride kites and freestylers.

NEW OMNIDIRECTIONAL GRIP WITH OFFSET FINGER BAR

Feel more connected. The Navigator is designed with a comfortable ergonomic grip for a natural grasp and the tactile offset finger bar is slightly oval, so you can feel when the control bar is orientated correctly. The colour-coded grip, leader tubing and line retainer pull tabs give a nod to our sailing heritage, port (red) and starboard (green).

NEW LARGER SPINNING LEASH ATTACHMENT RING

Our NEW oval-shaped leash pin ring has been elongated for easier fastening of the leash carabiner, and spins to help prevent your landing line from twisting.

PROTECTIVE PU COVERED LEADER LINES

To help prevent line abrasion from uncovered lines against your skin, we’ve used colour-coded PU tubing covers. The covers also help them remain rigid and out of the way when the flying lines aren’t under tension.

ADJUSTABLE CLEATED TRIM SYSTEM

Provides industry-proven line-adjustment when needed. The cleat base has been designed with NEW circular geometry for consistent bar spin, in other words, no jamming when you’re doing a barspin megaloop. In overpowered conditions the cleat allows you to shorten your front lines and adjust your body position.

DURABLE COVERED MAINLINE, WITH CUSTOMISED TPU TUBING

Symmetrical multibore landing line channel allows the landing line/flying line to pass through without snagging, regardless of the orientation when deploying or reloading. Crafted from a patented material specifically formulated for high abrasion flexible applications.

ADJUSTABLE LENGTH FLYING LINES 22M (12M + 10M)

22m lines have a split at 12m, which is far enough for the bar to travel to completely depower our largest kite when you flag out. Remove the standard 10m top section of flying line and 12m lines are ideal for schools to teach with and for foil racing. 8m and NEW 6m line extensions are available as an accessory for wave riding or tighter kiteloops.

KOOK-PROOF FLYING LINE CONNECTORS

Ensure you always set up your flying lines correctly. Designed to be exactly the same length so you can easily change the front (knotted end) and rear (lark’s head loop) connectors to match most other manufacturers’ kite configurations. Please familiarise yourself with the safety procedures and trimming instructions outlined in your kite’s user manual.

PREMIUM QUICK RELEASE LEASH – OPTIONAL

The Navigator Control System can be supplied with a premium quality North Freeride Leash with a high load carabiner. Also comes with soft neoprene cover and non-abrasive elasticised webbing. The NEW leash QR mechanism has been modified to ensure correct orientation is maintained when released for consistent, safe release and reload.

PREMIUM 100% DYNEEMA SK99 FLYING LINES

Strong, thinner profile, pre-stretched flying lines mean less parasitic drag and uncompromised direct performance. With 88m of flying lines in the air, you can really feel the difference thinner line creates. Our latest technology high-load LIROS DC-401 Pro flying lines have extreme stretch resistance and minimal diameter (1.6mm).

CONNECT QUICK RELEASE WITH INTUITIVE SINGLE-ACTION RELOAD

Fast, safe releases in a wide range of conditions. Our patented Connect Quick Release (QR) raises the bar in kite control system safety. The red QR handle has been ergonomically designed to fit in your hand comfortably for an industry-standard push away release. All loaded or running surfaces feature highly polished 316 stainless steel and low-friction components. The stretchy, larger diameter bungee inside the QR helps reduce accidental release.

TOOLLESS INTERLOOP SYSTEM WITH LOCKGUARD

We tested the 2022 Reach model early in it’s release and gave it a thorough pasting in the hands of a few students during lessons, and were really pleasantly surprised at how well it performed. It’s lightweight which sometimes means durability takes a back seat, but the North kites really are made well and we’re yet to see one be damaged in any way.

In the hands of a beginner it’s stable, really easy to relaunch, has a huge wind range and we could easily teach someone on the very first day of their kitesurfing lessons, it really is that easy to use.

BUT, North have managed to do what few are able to, and produce a kite which still has loads of performance.  The leading edge diameter is slender so it’s quick through the air which means it’s great on a foil and good for boosting while being efficient upwind. These attributes usually mean it’s awfully unstable and terrible at drifting down the line on a surfboard and constantly stalls or falls out the sky, but North have done a fantastic job at managing to create something that excels in literally every department.

The kite really is a one kite does everything, the ‘desert island kite’

North Navigator bar & lines

 We love the new safety release, it is so simple to rebuild,  simply click in like a car seat belt

North Reach 2022 Product Information

NEW HIGHEST QUALITY SHORT RESPONSIVE BRIDLE

Our new low-profile, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling. The end result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling. New tuning of the short responsive bridle gives the Reach quick, exponential depower, allowing you to ride it in an even wider range of conditions.

NEW LIGHTWEIGHT BLADDERS IN EVERY SIZE  

Lighter weight bladders have now been adopted into every size in the range. This additional weight reduction helps the new 2022 Reach fly more efficiently, and improves performance in lighter winds.

NEW LIGHTER WEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

Perfect for foiling and lightwind twintip riding, the Reach has a stable and balanced fuller profile for predictable, consistent power delivery in every condition, and exceptional performance at the low-end. The lightest kite in our range, the Reach’s lighter weight 3-strut construction and more powerful draft-forward profile helps you get up and going in light wind conditions. NEW reduced construction weight helps the 2022 Reach fly more efficiently with even better performance in lighter winds. We’ve kept the weight down for optimal steering and performance without compromising strength or durability, using a small two-ply of canopy along the trailing edge instead of heavier Dacron materials. In the larger sizes we’ve also used a lighter dacron in all of the leading edges and struts.

BOOSTS AND LOOPS WITH A SMOOTH RELIABLE CATCH  

The Reach has superb loft and hangtime with a compact steering radius, thanks to its medium aspect ratio design with wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle. During a loop, many kites will pause before they climb back up, but the Reach has a smooth, consistent catch and doesn’t hesitate to come back around.

MASSIVE WINDRANGE AND UPWIND DRIVE  

A powerful draft-forward profile, in combination with optimised profile transition panels, give the Reach a very smooth and efficient profile entry and upwind drive.

INCREDIBLY POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT  

The Reach has a slightly higher aspect ratio design for superb loft and hangtime, while its wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle help to maintain a compact steering radius, ideal for kite-looping. During kiteloops the Reach has a smooth, consistent catch and doesn’t hesitate to come back around.

DIRECT AND RESPONSIVE STEERING  

Tactile handling with light bar pressure and steering impulse for a fast response and tight turning radius. The quick responsive steering and neutral static balance help you fire up your performance in the surf, without any surprises. The Reach drifts well and doesn’t fall over, front-stall or back-stall. The bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip, allowing you to fine tune the kite’s characteristics to your personal preference.

CONFIDENT RELAUNCH WITH SWEPT DESIGN  

The moderate leading edge diameter medium high aspect design allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and provides additional buoyancy, helping the kite to release quickly from the water in even the lightest conditions.

PRECISE DRAFT-FORWARD PROFILE  

The draft-forward profile, in combination with optimised profile transition panels, give the Reach a very smooth and efficient profile entry and upwind drive. For the Reach we’ve developed a longitudinal profile control that connects to the leading edge seam to ensure a precise profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible, creating a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy. This results in an even more aerodynamic and efficient airflow and less turbulence.

PROGRESSIVE FREESTYLE MEDIUM HIGH AR  

A forgiving kite with pop when you need it for freestyle manoeuvres. The medium high aspect ratio, combined with a powerful profile, gives the Reach explosive pop. Good pop helps generate line slack for handle passes – simply load up, edge hard and pop off the water for easy Freestyle progression.

PREMIUM TEIJIN D2 TECHNO FORCE CANOPY

D2 Ripstop Fabric by Teijin. Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and endurance. Teijin Techno Force has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.

DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION  

Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protects the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.

KEVLAR REINFORCED STRUT SYSTEM WITH BRIDLE DEFLECTORS  

For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge. Bridle deflectors on the leading edge prevent the control lines catching on the struts.

HYPERFLOW RAPID SINGLE-POINT INFLATION 

High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adaptor required.

INCREDIBLE STABILITY FOR FOIL AND LIGHTWIND  

Boasting predictable, consistent power delivery in every condition, the Reach has exceptional performance at the low-end – especially at slower speeds in lighter wind. Its moderate leading edge diameter provides additional buoyancy, helping the kite to release quickly from the water in even the lightest conditions.

WELL-BALANCED TACTILE SURF HANDLING   

Quick responsive steering and neutral static balance helps you fire up your performance in the surf, without any surprises. The Reach drifts well and doesn’t fall over, front-stall or back-stall – making it your go-to kite for foiling and wave-riding.

 

North Flex Bindings 2021

North Kiteboarding Flex Bindings 2021

 

TWINTIP BINDINGS

“Cushions those big landings coming down from super high, with enough stiffness so you don’t bottom out.” – Bruna Kajiya

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Adjustable top-loading footstrap
  • KnitFlex seamless comfort and support
  • Impact resistant triple-density GripFlex footbeds

WHERE IT THRIVES

  • Chasing the horizon

The North Flex 2021 twintip bindings are engineered and refined for connection, comfort and performance. The Flex Bindings give you a locked-in feel and solid support. Extremely soft KnitFlex straps are fully adjustable, conforming to your whole foot with no stitching or bunching. Triple-density rubberized EVA footbeds provide lightweight cushioning and maintain grip underfoot when wet. Super quick three-point connection setup ensures a customised fit, and split inner velcro straps ensure maximum comfort for all foot shapes, sizes and rider styles.

 

Bindings Features

  ADJUSTABLE TOP-LOADING FOOTSTRAP

North Flex 2021 twintip bindings have a quick setup and a perfect fit for all sizes. The Flex Adjustors allow comfortable foot positioning, a secure feel and use of the toe bar. Simply drop the inner and outer Flex Adjustors into the baseplate from the top, move forward or backward then pull up into your desired position. For a more locked-in feeling set the inner two Flex Adjusters further apart. The patented rear eyelets have an outward kick to ensure your foot never comes in contact with the eyelet on hard landings.

KNEE-SAVING INWARD CANTING

The footpad is ergonomically angled to encourage optimised weight distribution and knee alignment, helping to minimise common rider injuries.

TWO SIZE OPTIONS

A good starting point would be Men’s US 9 (EU42.5) and above for binding size M/L but we highly recommend trying before purchase to guarantee the best fit. We have found it’s more to do with the shape and angle of your upper foot than foot length when aiming for the most effective fit.

6″ SCREW SPACING

To fit all North kiteboards. Can expand to fit 6.5″ spacing.

RECOMMENDED SIZING

A good starting point would be Men’s US 9 (EU42.5) and above for binding size M/L but we highly recommend trying before purchase to guarantee the best fit. We have found it’s more to do with the shape and angle of your upper foot than foot length when aiming for the most effective fit.

KNITFLEX SEAMLESS COMFORT AND SUPPORT

Our unique seamless KnitFlex inners are engineered for topside comfort and support. The NEW Knitflex fabric is pre-tensioned and laminated to the conforming foam inner, so it can create a 3D-curve without any bunching or creasing, and there’s no inner stitching to rub on your foot. NEW softer, thinner inner foam allows your foot to shuffle more easily into a locked-in position.

twintip binding

IMPACT RESISTANT TRIPLE-DENSITY GRIPFLEX FOOTBEDS

Lightweight, rubberized EVA provides soft cushioning and maintains grip underfoot when wet. The forward sloping grip pattern with ramped toe bar provides a good edge to get purchase on and prevents your foot from slipping out during high rotation tricks. High-density impact pads protect the heel from board contact on big landings, and are dual-moulded with a medium-density layer for serious impact protection. Another softer insert provides strategically-placed comfort under the ball of the foot.

PRECISION VELCRO STRAPS REDUCE WATER LIFT

Injection velcro decreases sand retention and extended top flaps increase hold and reduce water lift. The split inner-velcro design ensures a custom fit on top of the feet for all shapes, sizes and rider styles. Position the velcro straps wider apart for a more fixed feel, closer together for easy board-offs.

twintip binding

STANDARDISED M6 STANCE ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM

Our six-point connection system uses standardised M6x16mm screw hardware to fasten the binding to the board in various positions with easy stance adjustment to suit all riders. Move your bindings backwards (heelside) or forwards (toeside), set the position for a wide or narrow stance, and change your duck stance. The oval hole allows for both 6”- 6.5” industry standard screw spacings.

Includes
2 x Foot Straps, 2 x Foot Pads, 4 x M6x16mm screws
