PRODUCT INFORMATION
PRODUCT INFORMATION

Performance Wing


For high-speed performance, efficiency is key. The Mode, 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. 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.


TECHNONOLGY


N-Weave Technology: 3x stiffer, 40% lighter.

North developed N-Weave, a new low-elongation, high tensile strength woven fibre, to help reduce geometric compromise in our inflated structures. N-Weave creates a stiffer, lighter rig that holds its shape when under load and has a highly efficient power delivery. 3x stiffer than a polyester of the same weight, N-Weave reduces structural deflection and transfers wind energy into greater forward speed, explosive boost and hangtime for freestyle tricks.


FEATURES


Compact outline with reduced wingspan

Balanced lower aspect ratio design with rounded wingtips to reduce tip strike.

Freestyle and Freeride performance

We designed the Mode for high-speed performance, but the stiffer airframe also translates into an unprecedented loft for higher jumps and forward momentum on landings.

New Panel Layout

Stabilizes the wingtips and increases tension under load


VMG-Optimised Design

Our primary design 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-optimized 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.

Dual inflation valves

There are two main valves, one on the LE and one on 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-Weave material also has a higher inflation pressure capacity, which enables you to 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 positions to control the wing’s pitch, yaw and roll, while keeping your body positioned perfectly over the foil.


WHAT RIDERS SAY


"The Mode is the definition of freedom. It's insane how you don’t feel any friction when riding - nothing is holding you back"
  - Chucho Nonnet


DESIGN


Maximum strength. Minimum weight. Wing Designer Dano See talks to Mike Raper about the Mode design.
