Re: North Atmos or North Focus

Not sure if you've pulled the trigger on a purchase yet, but I'd be happy to help offer my advice. I've ridden all the Atmos and Focus in both constructions, and am partial to the Atmos in the standard construction. Sidenote - the Asylum is one of my favorite boards as well. I think you'll be happi...

Re: North Atmos or North Focus

Yeah, I am not fan of any brand. I buy anything that I feel comfortable riding. I have mostly Slingshot at the moment. But I did ride on Naish, Cabrinha and Switch kite gears before. Haven't tried Duotone or Core kites actually just because I have to change bar and lines as well.

Re: North Atmos or North Focus

Thanks Luca and Mike for your feedback. I was thinking similar about Atmos at this stage of my riding. Looks like it ticks all my requirements. We get choppy water and light to medium winds here mostly. So, upwind is important as well as smoother riding. From characteristic looks like both boards ar...

Re: North navigator control bar

I bought the north navigator at last. Really great bar, super happy about it. It is so comfortable compared to my Slingshot bar. Only issue was the line management bungee retracts to the floats sometime hard to get out. Overall very good bar, recommended. I would prefer if the bar came with 20m line...

Re: North navigator control bar

I use both Ozone and North bars and both are excellent however the North is my favourite though, the bar is super comfy even after hours on the water, simple RED port side, and both depower and safety are inside the PU tube so no safety line to constantly watch for wear. That sounds good. How do yo...

Re: North navigator control bar

Thanks everyone for feedback. Yes, I forgot to mention about the PU tubing for center lines. I think that is a great feature. Currently I am using Slingshot 50cm bar 23m lines. I also have a 55cm Cabrinha recoil. Slingshot bar is very robust, I like it's construction. I found QR is not easy to re-lo...

North navigator control bar

Reliable and easy re-loadable QR 4. Easy kite lines and bar maintenance (in case to replace lines) Lo...

Ride engine 2019 Elite harness: Is there any specific place for knife?

Hi,
I just got a Ride engine 2019 elite harness and Ion C spreader bar. None of them got a space for a hook knife. I am using the side space in harness where the webbing goes through.

Anyone has any idea better way to keep a knife?

Thanks
Ben
