Can someone put some information about the new line of product from Northkb.
Many people, friends are anxious for the day to present the new kites.
They're launching on 8 / 1/ 2019. You'll probably won't get many details until then.

What annoys me is that the new "North" does not resonate with me at all and I have to look at that for me now stupid name on my kites and apparel. I am not North! I hope they do well and push the industry forward/increase pay for team riders and give them more possibilites away from the contest route but couldn't you just take a different name :angryfire:

And here I was thinking I'm the only one selecting kites based on their name resonance!
A friendly tip, go to highly echoing cave and sing the names in a chanting manner, you'll find the resonances in no time. That's how I first ended up with Peter Lynn Fury followed by Escape models.

What do you consider the New North" ? Is it the old north that has a new name that has the same "old north" kites ? Or is it the "new north" that has the same name but has no products out yet but will soon be fielding kites similiar to old/new cabrinha kites? Will the name of the "old north ever be accepted by the masses or will it always be a bone of contention,unless you mean the "new north" that is using the name "north". Who really is the new North ? :-o

:o See what they did to us? :angryfire: :rollgrin:

I can't relate to or "like" the new north (apart from some team riders) and am now annoyed that the things I own from old north (now duotone) gear is branded with the same name and I get reminded of something I don't really like constantly. It is like having a little scratch on the sunglasses, I used to like those sunglasses and now all I see is this stupid scratch. Well for me at least, send help or money. :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :thumb:
