North Mode Wing
The North Mode Wing, our new high-speed performance wing, incorporates N-Weave woven fibre technology, 3x stiffer and 40% lighter than traditional leading-edge materials, for the most efficient power delivery on the market. For high-speed performance, efficiency is key.
N-Weave reduces structural deflection and transfers wind energy into greater forward speed, explosive boost and hangtime for freestyle tricks. Development of this new material technology has allowed us to create a stiffer, lighter and more durable wing without geometric compromise (and without the high-performance price tag).
The Mode has a fast, VMG-optimized design, which lets you sail closer to the wind, on higher upwind angles, and reduces your need to tack or gybe, so you reach the mark as quickly as possible. We designed the Mode primarily for high-speed performance, but the stiffer airframe also translates into unprecedented loft for higher jumps and forward momentum on landings. With incredible high-end stability, the 4.2 and 5.5m are ideal for use in stronger winds, while the 7m is optimised for greater power in lighter air.
The wing has a balanced lower aspect ratio with rounded wingtips to reduce tip strike, and the new panel layout delivers wingtip stability and increased tension under load. Featuring rigid GripLock micro-trim control handles for immediate response, and new race-window positioning to help you keep a close eye on your opponents.

N-Weave Technology: 3x stiffer, 40% lighter.
Almost half the weight of traditional dacron, the N-Weave makes the overall weight of the wing about 25% lighter. This weight savings translates into greater performance, more efficient power delivery in light air, and makes the wing easier to handle in all conditions. N-Weave also has very high cut and abrasion resistance. The UPE fibres that make up N-Weave are known for their resistance to water, moisture, most chemicals, UV and microorganisms. UPE is also known for its durability and toughness.
Our primary objectives for the Mode were speed and VMG, or Velocity Made Good, which indicates your speed towards or from the direction of the wind. The wing’s fast, VMG-optimised design enables you to sail closer to the wind , on higher upwind angles, reducing your need to tack or gybe, so you reach the mark as quickly as possible.
Freestyle and Freeride Performance
We designed the Mode for high speed performance but the stiffer airframe also translates into unprecedented loft for higher jumps and forward momentum on landings
High end Stability and impressive wind range
The Mode has incredible high-end stability. The 4.2 and 5.5 are designed for high end, stronger winds, while the 7m is optimised for greater power in lighter air. The wing also has excellent range – that’s why there is only 3 in the the whole quiver. Any rider will benefit from the wing’s stability and tensioning. Once you’re up on the foil its design for stability at the high end – whereas the Nova and Nova Light Wind are design for better performance in the low end.
New panel layout
Stabilises the wingtips and increases tension under load
Compact outline with reduced wingspan
Balanced lower aspect ratio design with rounded wingtips to reduced tip strike
Dual inflation valves
There are two main valves, one on the LE and one the strut, with an interlinking valve and hose. This enables you to inflate the strut to a higher pressure than the leading edge. The N-Wave material also has a higher inflation pressure capacity, which enables you to use a smaller wing size, without sacrificing power.
Rigid GripLock handles
Rigid GripLock micro-trim control handles for immediate response and intuitive transitions. The rigid handles radically transform the way you ride, with instant control and reduced hand-fatigue. The two long handlebars are wrapped in a soft EVA grip for comfort, and enable you to slide your hands into optimum trimming position to control the wing’s pitch, yaw and roll, while keeping your body positioned perfectly over the foil. More freedom in your hand placement lets you choose the best feel based on the conditions, your arm length, and your body size.
Gybe-friendly window positioning
New race-window positioning for keeping an eye on your opponents. We’ve placed two smaller windows in front of you so you can see down wind . We’ve also placed a window towards the end of the strut for a visual on what’s behind you.
