Re: North speedster GT ?

I have both, the Speedster and the GT. Have learned on a Speedster setup, it foils at very little speed, easy for learning, very good upwind, not fast, good for learning tacks, jibes. The GT version wings are a lot smaller, speed is better, but it needs more power and speed to rise, tacks and jibes ...

Re: North Prototype

Seems like NTG has bought Mystic, so every Mystic dealer will have to sell NKB now...

Re: North Rebel sizing for heavy rider

Rebel 14 2018 is a good kite, 4 lines, not very powerfull, but has great highend, with your weight you'll be riding it anyway not at 10 knots wind.
Forget the the Rebel 18 - that one was a disaster.

Re: 2018 North Evo, any thoughts?

Thanks for chiming in, it sounds good so far, what bar have you matched it with, I actually have a 12m 2018 evo waiting at home but I won’t be able to fly it until March, I was thinking of adding a 9m evo as well so I’m pretty much covered for all conditions, but before biting the bullet again I th...

Re: 2018 North Evo, any thoughts?

Have been flying the 12m for an hour with 22m lines on a waveboard at lighter winds. Light bar pressure (used to NEOs on hard setting), pretty quick turning for the size, though I think it would genarate more power on a 24m lines. Overall impresion - the kite flyes very easy and "on it's own". Next ...

Ask you nearest NKB dealer as they can order the fabric in desired color by the manufacturer.

Re: North Click Bar Official Unofficial Thread

Just remove the V-distributor completely and you'll have a bar with low V. Kite behavior will change though.
My question: has somebody tried the NKB ACE on an low V setting or any other traditional 4liner bar?

Re: ION CS Wave Harness, waiting but not sure now.

Sorry for the delay in responding... Was out for a few days. Here's a photo of a production CS Wave harness spreader along with a replacement C Bar with standard hook just under it. You'll note that the attachment is different. The replacement hook ships with the clip so if you get a CS wave and a ...

Re: WMFG Big Pump - does it work with 2016- North kites and Core kites?

The silicone o-ring to seal the airflow is easy to loose, but the pump works fine without it on NKB kites.

Re: Click Bar Highlights

Yes, I fully agree on the (NKB) theory, but in reality there is a difference how the kite feels when the 5th line is loaded just above the Y and when its loaded through the whole lenght. Thats why Rebel and Vegas fly perfectly with a new (out of the bag) 5th el. bar, but after some time (when the li...
