TIME AND TIDE WAIT FOR NO-ONE
What are you willing to reach for? The 2021 Reach has no boundaries. Lively and playful, this 3-strut allrounder has unparalleled versatility and wind range. Big jumps. Upwind performance. Effortless relaunch. Its even lighter construction excels in lightwind, foil and surf, without compromising the kite’s durability. Its snappy, responsive steering and power delivery give rise to great boosts, loops and freestyle moves. Your go-to kite in all conditions. The Reach is nimble and easy to ride, with high-performance attributes that guarantee you’ll never grow out of it. Its fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while its 3-strut construction delivers quick, responsive steering in even the lightest wind. In the three larger sizes, the Reach is a powerful lightwind kite designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in. For 2021 North introduced new highest quality low-profile, low-elongation bridle lines for an even more direct response. We’ve adopted lighter weight bladders across all sizes in the range, refined the shape and retuned the short responsive bridle for quick, exponential depower, so you can fly faster, and more efficiently, in an even wider range of conditions. This is the one kite you’ll always reach for.
“This is the kite I’ll reach for when I’m not really sure what the day will bring. It's almost like four kites in one” – Jalou Langeree
Boosts and loops with a smooth reliable catch
The Reach has superb loft and hangtime with a compact steering radius and smooth, consistent catch, thanks to its medium aspect ratio design with wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle.
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.
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 stall - making it your go-to kite for foiling and wave-riding.

2022 North Atmos Hybrid TT Board
Powerful upwind tracking, carving and Big Air sends.
Our most popular high-performance Freeride board for explosive boosting, looping and stable, predictable landings. The Atmos is powerful upwind with precise edge control. Strategically placed layers of unidirectional carbon tape in the hybrid construction help deliver a well-balanced dynamic flex. Designed to ride overpowered with ease and control, yet still enabling early planing and low-end performance. The harmony between medium rocker, progressive outline and flex makes this the ultimate all-terrain board to take you to the next level, in all conditions. Edge harder and release into Earth's atmosphere.
Allows for early planing and great low-end performance with rapid response & explosive pop.
Absorbs impact by breaking the water surface tension, and ensures stable and predictable landings.
Strategically placed layers of unidirectional carbon tape reinforce the E-glass laminate in high load areas. This layup is sandwiched with a Paulownia wood core to deliver a well-balanced, more forgiving flex so you can ride for longer, with flow and form.
Delivers easy carving through turns and always provides optimised grip.
Balanced rocker, outline and flex for excellent upwind tracking.
The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.
Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios. Ultra lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance, Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.
For long-lasting, impact-resistant performance.
Standardised SS316 M6x16mm hardware across all twin tip boards and accessories enables the use of the same PH3 screwdriver for assembly and makes replacement of parts super easy.
Integrated into deck shape to provide easy grip for board-offs.
Lightweight and ergonomic TPE material with ultimate grip when wet.
Strong, abrasion resistant composite fins with dogbone washers and M6x16mm standardised screws.
Soft cushioning with just the right amount of grip underfoot. Pure-comfort seamless KnitFlex inners and triple-density GripFlex footbeds are combined with customised size and stance adjustments for a locked-in feel and dependable support. Sold separately in sizes S/M or M/L.

THINK LESS, FEEL MORE
Release and reload faster with the intuitive single-action reload Connect Quick Release, and switch effortlessly between disciplines with the Toolless Interloop, our no-tools required modular harness loop replacement system. The Navigator Control System connects you intuitively to your kite, using premium leading technology Dyneema lines for precise performance. For 2021 we’ve widened the range with a new smaller bar size, and we’ve refined the ergonomic design even further for greater durability, increased tactile control and comfort. Sensing your kite’s position just became second nature.
“Simple, refined and intuitive. Right down to the sound of the closure. Push and click.” – Hugh Pinfold
Premium 100% Dyneema SK99 flying lines
Strong, thinner profile, pre-stretched flying lines mean less parasitic drag and uncompromised direct performance.
Adjustable bar length options with NEW smaller bar size
Fine tune the turning speed of your kite. The Navigator 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).
2022 North Flex TT Bindings
For quick setup and a perfect fit for all sizes. Our fully re-engineered top flap gives a strong hold without compromising strap flexibility. The Flex Adjusters allow comfortable foot positioning, a secure feel and use of the toe bar. Simply drop the inner and outer Flex Adjusters 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 rear eyelets have an outward kick to ensure your foot never comes in contact with the edge of the eyelet on hard landings.
Engineered for connection, comfort and performance, our 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. In 2022 we’ve further refined the Flex Bindings to provide an even more secure comfort-fit with increased lateral support.
Our unique seamless KnitFlex inners are engineered for topside comfort and support. The 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. The soft inner foam allows your foot to shuffle more easily into a locked-in position.
Lightweight, rubberized EVA provides soft cushioning and maintains grip underfoot when wet, while the finer grip pattern helps keep your foot locked in on various angles. The ramped toe bar has been engineered with a more angled tactile edge to get purchase on and prevent 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.
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.
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.
The footpad is ergonomically angled to encourage optimised weight distribution and knee alignment, helping to minimise common rider injuries. Outer angled heel inserts give increased lateral support.
New strap outline shaping and styling to ensure a tighter more comfortable fit
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.
To fit all North kiteboards. Can expand to fit 6.5' spacing.
