Looking forward to see reviews of the Orbit. It seemed to have some very specific issues before that they now might have fixed. If so I am expecting it to be an amazing kite and quite potentially one I could buy.

And just to mess with your customers you changed to green from red so if they have different model years that have to get used to it,
I think that comes from Cabrinha haha, every year a new bar color for left hand side. Marketing, same same but looks different.

Personally I prefer red in the left as standard, and it’s good to have red in the back of the bar as well.

I have always teaching to begginers that remarkable color always go on the left side of the bar to have a systematic behavior, I thought that it was a rule for all brands as quick release in red color, that was mandatory last year.

Finally I realise that I was wrong... Or not? mystake of North in my opinion, it was totally innecesary.

On the contrary, I like to see one more kite brand with puleyless concept in their kites.

Too bad, I guess I won't be buying a North bar after all. Black and green? Almost as bad as Reedin (white and white)

People have been talking about this for only 10-12 years by now. You wouldn’t want kite companies to actually listen to their customers?

Nice. Sounds like they fixed that stability issue some have mentioned with the previous version. Especially for someone like me who wouldn't be world class at landing jumps that is a positive sign. Looking forward to more reviews.
