The new TS Hadlow has had a radical redesign. It aims to bridge the gap between Team Series and Gambler giving you the best of both worlds. Aaron concentrates on competition wakestyle, but also spends a lot of time hitting rails and kickers.
The new design features a grind base with a new channel system, but combines a reactive carbon flex pattern for a snappy, responsive pop. The board keeps some of its roots from the previous year but we looked to improved the flex pattern by adding slightly stiffer tip for a more explosive pop. We have kept the same rounded outline thought the rails and also kept a strong rocker line, but combined with a new deep double concave. It’s fast but softens even the hardest of landings.
Adding channels along the heel and toe edge has produced more grip through the center of the board and also gives you a more centered carve and pop. TheTrack system is positioned in one line, so boots can be ridden on both edges to increase the lifecycle of the board. This board really has everything a modern wakestyler can want!

NTT + THE TRACK
The NTT has been designed and tested for use with the The Track system. “The Track” is an innovative mounting system on North twintips in its third generation. Together with The Track, the NTT unfolds its full potential of individual settings. The NTT can be mounted on any board with standard inserts from the product generation 2011 onwards, however, the range of individual settings is then limited.
NTT CONTACT FRAME
The Contact Frame is the intelligent basis of the entire footpad. The construction perfectly adapts to the shape of North boards and does not interfere with the flex characteristics.
The NTT Contact Pad consists of the time-tested EVA footpad and the NTT Contact Frame. The footbed is ergonomically shaped and perfectly combines fit, control and comfort. The footpad is enveloped by the Contact Frame, which reliably transfers the forces directly to the board. The direct contact between Contact Pad and board enhances the board feeling.
› The enhanced heel of the Contact Pad reduces pressure in sensitive areas of the foot by increasing the cushioning effect. Also it changes the angle of the foot in the binding, which improves the foothold.
› The anti-slip surface first employed in 2014 considerably increases the grip, keeping the foot in firm contact with the NTT . However the surface of the inlays permits easy entry, yet prevents the foot slipping out. Maximum comfort & bombproof grip.
NTT HEEL CUSHION
The pad is supplied with three NTT heel cushions of varying hardness. The cushions permit adjusting the NTT Contact Pads to your personal preferences.
› soft (yellow) for more comfort
› hard (blue) for better control
› medium (red) for the golden mean
Together with the NTT Contact Pad, the NTT Split Strap forms probably the most functional footpad system on the market. In 2016 the strap is covered with a flush velcro neoprene on the inside and outside. It offers great comfort and grip on the inside and due to the fact that the velcro sticks on anywhere you have always perfect overlap and hold of the strap. The revolutionary split function offers the choice between maximum grip and optimum mobility:
BOMBPROOF GRIP & MORE CONTROL
By moving the Strap Buckles backwards or forward, the split opens or closes. The further you open the split, the greater the contact surface that wraps around your foot. Offering bombproof grip and more control over your board is the direct result.
The more you close the split, the more range of motion you get. The Split Strap comes with all-over padding and the width adjustment makes sure that the NTT Split Strap wraps tightly around any shape of foot. Achieving a great fit with neoprene booties is no longer a problem neither. The procedure is really simple and only takes a few seconds.
HOW TO MOUNT THE NTT
The The Track Nuts secure the Pad/Strap combination and mount to the NTT Combo within seconds. The Nuts can be moved laterally in The Tracks to adjust the distance between the pads. The Nuts are supplied with all series boards with The Track System.
THE TRACK PLUGS
The Track Plug are made of TPE plastic and prevents The Track Nuts from falling out of the tracks. The plugs also make sure that the system is mounted correctly.
The central triangles on the NTT ContactPad and inside The Track system indicate the entity Combo’s basic setting, also known as the recommended stance. The recommended stance has been individually determined for each North Kiteboarding board. Some riders may prefer a different position. The section Customize X6 explains the various possibilities for individual tuning.
