Since 2001 North Kiteboarding is involved in the development of kites, kiteboards and accessories. From the very beginning North Kiteboarding became a leading brand on the market thanks to both the innovative design and high quality.
The NKB team strives to create pioneering and high quality products, always one step ahead at the forefront of the kiteboarding industry. In order to integrate the latest global trends, our products are tested and developed by NKB team-riders and designers. North Kiteboarding immediately assimilates new trends and styles, and has set new standards from the very outset, thanks to the high level of both team riders and designers. Amongst these innovations and standards are the patented Fifth-line-system, several security features as well as top-level shapes of kites and boards. That is why ION CLUB is the number 1 school partner of North Kiteboarding from the beginning.
The Evo is the ultimate all round kite in the North Kiteboarding range and a completely new interpretation of a freestyle/freeride kite.
The Evo is at home no matter what the conditions. No matter what type of rideing the Evo will deliver.The kite feels like an easy to use C-Shaped kite in terms of its handling. It has a smooth predictable nature and direct and responsive turning characteristics. The hangtime and lift delivered when jumping is impressive, the kite really accelerates through the window to generate huge amounts of power and lift, perfect for oldschoool manoeuvres. Due to the 5 struts, the Evo is stable even in biggest gusts or steering mistakes.
The Dice is a brand new kite for 2014, aimed at the rider wanting a do it all machine with C-Shape flying characteristics.
Airton Cozzolino and Tom Court are using the Dice, showing you just how versatile it is. Happy performing wakestyle, freestyle or in the waves – the kite entertains on all levels. It is based around a C-Shape profile, using a lightweight three strut construction. The kite feels lively in your hands, very direct and predictable in the air. The bar feedback is instinctive and riders find the kite easy to fly right out of the bag. If you want a kite that will give you the maximum amount of fun in any conditions, choose the Dice.
In the spirit of keeping things fresh, North Kiteboarding introduces the new Juice!
The set of goals to achieve were clearly defined. It had to be fast, fly upwind with ease and deliver smooth power in the lightest of winds. Traditionally big kites haven’t managed to achieve these things; large race kites have the power but not the handling, large airstyle kites have good wind range but are often slow to turn. NKB managed to infuse the great handling of a small three-strut kite with the power and efficiency of the bigger race kites, but in a simpler, easier to handle package. Built around a three-strut platform North Kiteboarding created a light wind kite that is fast, efficient and exiting to fly. It’s the perfect antidote to those summer days when the wind doesn’t quite deliver.
If you like riding waves, but don´t want to miss comfort freeriding, the Neo is the kite for you.
The Neo is the dedicated wave-freeride kite in the line up, aimed at the rider who values quality waves and needs a kite to perform. This year the Neo comes with a floating strut and the structure of the kite is a little softer to enable the Neo to absorb gusts, giving a smoother power development and allowing the rider even more control on the wave. The Neo is extremely responsive to rider input on the bar, making it easy to manoeuvre on the wave. The lightweight construction makes the kite very lively in the air, but also means there is even less chance of the kite dropping back in the window as you race down the line. If you like riding waves, but don´t want to miss comfort freeriding, the Neo is the kite for you.
North Kiteboarding spent years refining the Buzz to create the ultimate “School Kite”. It’s really easy to fly, relaunches automatically and is very predictable in the sky, making it the ultimate kite to learn on.
The power is soft and steady and the kite is designed not to surge forwards in gusty winds making it very controllable. The auto relaunch allows for simple hands free relaunch, meaning you spendmore of your time flying the kite and learning the basic skills you need to progress. When riders are learning they crash kites, pure and simple, these kites get a tough life. To ensure they survive more than one season NKB has used the highest quality and most indestructible materials they could find. Crash it, launch it, crash it again the Buzz will keep coming back for more!
