North Mono 2018

The Mono is a simple one-strut Allrounder with a focus on performance and handling. It is perfect for travelling and can perform on a twin tip, directional or foilboard. The smaller sizes are ideal for fast progression, freeriders, wave riders and foil boarders alike. The kite has amazing low-end performance, and it flies upwind with ease. The relaunch is very fast and easy; thanks to the Delta design the kite doesn’t stick to the water. The bar pressure is light, while there is a progressive power development as you sheet in, making it very easy to ride. Handling on the Mono is very dynamic, with fast, reactive steering the kite works well in all situations, also on foil boards. While the weight of the kite has been kept to a minimum, there are plenty of reinforcements in the right places to ensure it is very robust too. If you want a great all rounder with an incredible low-end for easy freeriding duties, the Mono is it!

I don't know anyone other than team guys who have actually ridden the 2018, but there's a bit of info in a short interview with Ken Winner, the designer: ... lUt41_OvaA

Hope that helps, and if you get a chance to test out the new Mono feel free to post thoughts here.

Sounds like they made some subtle shape improvement. The 2016 Mono is very well powered and grunty.
