"Goes big and stays there!"
This advanced freeride kite offers incredible boosting capabilities thanks to its 2-stage arc design, kiters will be astounded by the huge hang times reinforced by a stiff exo-skeletal frame that provides a strong platform to help with overpowered airs and megaloops even in gusty conditions.
The reduced leading edge diameter results in low drag profiling provide enhanced upwind-ability unlike any other kite on the market!
With a high aspect sweep design and a 5-strut design, the North Kiteboarding Orbit offers incredible stability whilst still remaining super-efficient in the air and is an ease to relaunch off the water. Lastly light bar pressure allows for effortless steering that remains perfectly precise all with a massive sweet spot!
This is a completely new kitesurfing kite built from the ground up that will boost you into the stratosphere, and fire upwind! A new breed of kite optimised for all conditions, a kite developed to remain predictable even in the unpredictable! Prepare yourself to feel lift like never before!
2-Stage Arc Design: With a flattened 2-stage arc the kite is capable of having a curved central region in order to generate more power, while straighter wingtips mean more dynamic steering
Widest Span: With the widest span in the range the Orbit delivers amazing power for its size and unbeatable hangtime thanks to the opened up the flattened arc of the kite
Profile Transition Panels: North have added an extra panel connecting from the leading edge seam to maintain their precise lateral profile shape, this creates a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy. All the equates to a more aerodynamic shape with more efficient airflow and significantly less turbulence.
Kevlar Reinforced Strut System: By using this incredibly robust material means North can provide an accurate and durable connection between the struts to the leading edge
Exo-Skeleton Structure: A reinforced frame around the perimeter of the kite built from Techno Force 160gsm Dacron, placed to help ease the transition from the Kevlar strut system to the lighter canopy material. The use of this stretch-resistant material adds durability and strength while protecting the canopy and providing elongation control. Ultimately making the North kite more responsive with increased performance and lift yet still very flexible and dynamic.
Duralite Seam Protection: Foam padding is inserted along the leading edge to slightly lift the struts off the ground creating an lightweight protective barrier thats ensures the lifespan of the stitching and leading-edge by keeping them out of contact with abrasive beaches
Steering Impulse Option: The bar pressure/steering impulse wing tuning options allow the rider to finetune the kites performance to their own personal preference
Low Drag Pre-stretched Bridle Lines: A completely new manufacturing technique that allows the factory to pre-load the lines before cutting them, that means, first of all, they are much more consistent between kite to kite with a much-improved longevity thanks to a very low change in shrinkage or elongation.
No Pulley Bridles: A simplified system that ensures there are fewer potentials for breakages by removing the plastic pulleys for the load-bearing part of the bridle this not only improves the safety of the kite but results in lower drag, greater accuracy through the turns and a direct feeling from the kite itself
Teijin Techno Force: High density D2 Ripstop material made in japan using a high tenacity yarn for its lightness, high tearing strength and lasting endurance. Teijin is renowned for having the highest strength to weight ratio in the industry
Hyperflow Inflation System: This bayonet style main valve is compatible with most pumps, and thanks to its high volume inflation system means rapid inflation and deflation
