INFORMATION SUR LE PRODUIT

YOUR DESERT ISLAND KITE


Lively and playful, this 3-strut allrounder has unparalleled versatility and wind range. Easy jumps. Upwind performance. Effortless relaunch. For 2024 the Reach is lighter overall. We’ve improved the canopy tension for faster flying, and revised the arc design for a crisper, snappier response, more direct steering and more dynamic recovery. Still nimble and easy to ride, but now with a cleaner profile entry and smoother more aerodynamic shape that’s even more stable in kite loops, the Reach is your go-to kite in all conditions. The lighter construction excels in lightwind, foil and surf, without compromising the kite’s durability. Its fast, responsive steering and efficient power delivery give rise to confident boosts, loops and freestyle, while the short responsive bridle provides quick, exponential depower. 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.

FEATURES


1/13

Boosts and loops with a smooth reliable catch

The Reach has superb loft and hangtime with a compact steering radius, thanks to its medium-high 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.

2/13

Incredible stability for foil and light wind

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.

3/13

Well-balanced tactile surf handling

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 - making it your go-to kite for foiling and wave-riding.

4/13

New segmented curve arc for improved canopy tension

Where nature meets technology. We’ve revised the Reach arc shape so tension can transition more evenly through the canopy, as you would see in a catenary shape in nature. The new segmented curve arc gives the kite a cleaner profile that is more stable in kite loops. The kite remains light and fast but now has a crisper, more snappy feel.

5/13

Reduced Dacron for lighter weight

Using a lighter weight Dacron on the leading edge and struts saves a significant amount of weight. For 2024 we’ve reduced the total amount of Dacron used on the kite, making what is already the lightest kite in our range even lighter.

6/13

Progressive freestyle medium-high AR

A forgiving kite with pop when you need it for freestyle manoeuvres. The medium high aspect ratio, combined with the 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.

7/13

Direct and Responsive Steering

Tactile handling with light bar pressure and steering impulse for a fast response and tight turning radius. Refined tuning of the short responsive bridle gives the Reach quick, exponential depower, allowing you to ride it in an even wider range of conditions

8/13

Durable, higher tensile leading edge seams

There is a large amount of force on the closing seam of the leading edge due to inflation and steering movement.

9/13

Highest Quality no pulley bridle lines

Our 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.

10/13

High Performance N-HTRS canopy

All our kites are manufactured using high tenacity polyester yarn canopy material for lightness, high tear strength, zero porosity and longevity.

11/13

Duralite seam protection

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. Markcloth seam protectors on the canopy also help to protect the stitching.

12/13

HyperFlow rapid single-point inflation

Ergonomic high volume single point inflation system with large diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. The cap and valve base geometry has been optimised for more comfortable opening and closing in colder conditions (when your fingers are freezing). The bayonet style main inflation valve is compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed.

13/13

Recycled PET kite bag

Recycled materials are also used to make our own custom webbing. It’s generously sized to fit your packed-down kite easily, with corrosion-free zippers, stash pockets and air-vents in the bottom and sides of the bag. North kite bags also have an external Control System pocket, Kite Pump attachment and ergonomic shoulder and chest straps.
