Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Yes. Remember, I work directly with the marketing department... And it can happen that they North Sails comes with its own kites. Or maybe license to another brand. But they need to go a long way to get where Duotone is. Yeah but you are dealing with the Duotone marketing dept. and not North-mother...

Re: What are the similarities between Cabrinha and RRD?

Re: Dropping the hook & slider, BRM bar and Ride Engine mod.

If you don't wanna drill, cut or weld anything, just get any of the current versions of the NP aluminum spreader bar, unscrew the 3 bolts and fix whatever you wish there.

Re: The Cabrinha Fireball (New Connector Safety Issues)
