Re: North launches all-new Wing, Kite, SUP and Surf Foil, Reach kite and Freestyle Collection 2021

I'm looking at reach 15/17 for those 12-15kn days in the summer to progress my unhooked riding. Did they change anything from 2020 to 2021 on the 15m? How does the 15 compare to the 17? Am roughly 90kg with gear. cheers low end is about the same, the 17 will have more pull that could be tough to ho...

Re: Help? How to Rebuild a LF Mission Control Bar?

the depower line runs through the PU tube and ends at the cube just above the quick release. If you open up the cube you will see a metal ring that the power line loops around locking it into the PU tube.
