North Juice 2016- lightwind freeride
Playful big kite
Easy, accessible kite
The second generation of our hugely popular light wind freeride kite, the Juice is ideal for those days on the beach when the wind doesn’t arrive. The kite is available in two sizes, 15m and 18m and is designed around a 3-strut platform to ensure it retains a playful nature in the air, despite the large size! The Juice has amazing upwind performance, even in hardly any wind. Unlike some large kites, which have a racing focus in mind, the Juice was designed for freeriding. During the design process the Juice was tested using Twintips, this enabled us to ensure the kite offers the optimum performance for light wind freeride action. You’ll be amazed with the huge jumps on the Juice too, the kite glides and offers plenty of hangtime and it is a great kite for airstyle tricks.
Don’t get stuck on the beach this summer, grab a refreshing Juice and get on the water!

Quality means a lot to North Kiteboarding. For this reason we have focused our efforts on the best quality management possible over the last few years. We expect lasting performance in a wide range of conditions from our kites. We expect to design kites that fulfill and surpass the wishes and demands of our customers. To ensure we can attain this goal, quality begins at the very first stages of kite manufacturing. We know that a product is always only as good as its weakest detail, which is the reason why all details in construction and production methods have been and continue to be analyzed and optimized over the years. We like to simply call this design and quality standard Progression Q. In this ongoing process, we continuously work on improvements, but the basic idea remains the same: By standardizing details in construction and design across our entire range it has become possible to optimize production processes and to use materials more efficiently. The result is products that are all automatically at the same level of quality at any given time. Both of our kite designers work together closely so that each kite model in our range automatically benefits from every new idea or experience. Pro Q represents durability, timeless performance, and the highest possible quality control standards.
4 to 5th line
Shows the ability if a kite can be transformed from a 4 line kite into a 5th line kite.
Kook Proof Connectors
These connectors prevent one cause of kite accidents by ensuring that front lines cannot be attached to the back of the kite and back lines cannot be attached to the front.
The valve is suitable for both, inflation and deflation. The deflation option is integrated, which means no external deflation pin is required. Deflation is simply activated by turning the blue wheel on the inside of the valve completely to the right.
North Lazy pump
One valve for inflating, one valve for deflating the whole kite.
Easy and efficient.
Self Rescue handles
These loops attached to the inside of the wingtips make it easier to hold the kite for bodydrag rescue.
TE Force control
The Trailing Edge Force Control describes the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the
right directions.Compared to 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the D2 Canopy Material. This change in construction reduces flattering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
The kite can be used with North quad 4 line bar or trust 5th element bar.
5th Element Bar
Safety is an essential topic in a sport where you are facing the power of the elements and in some situations are totally on your own. The North patented 5th line system has provided the greatest combination of safety and performance for many years now. Year after year, the 5th line concept proves its reliability and 100% instant depower after a safety release no matter what the conditions. The system still has a commanding lead compared to other safety systems available on the market. This is why we at North Kiteboarding believe in the 5th line concept. What’s more, the 5th line makes water relaunch effortless and the loaded 5th line kite designs (Vegas and Rebel) offer a very short depower stroke, giving the rider ultimate control in gusty conditions. The benefits of this set-up are obvious and appreciated by riders all over the world.
The established 4-line system offers a single fronline safety system. When releasing the single frontline system all the power is redirected to one single frontline, whereby the kite will flag out easily and rest powerless on the water. Moreover, the kite will remain in a position that is ideal to relaunch the kite from the water. The safety pulley is specially designed for the single frontline safety system. The Quad Control bar is the safest 4-line bar on the market, offering unrivalled control and safety release options. The Iron Heart release is unparalleled in its efficiency and ease of use and forms the core of the bar through which the other safety systems flow. This allows the rider to get things back under control quickly and easily. The Quad Control Bar is identical to the 5th Element Bar aside from the 4 lines and single front line safety setup, ensuring it is the best on the market. However, 4-line systems can only offer limited safety functions. For ultimate safety and 100% depower, riders should choose the 5-line
The Juice works with the Trust Bar 5th Element and Trust Quad 4 line
24m (50% Handling / 50% Power)
One bar fits all.
The 24m lines are the best choice for an all round length, good turning speed combined with good power make 24m the perfect choice for a lot of riders. Great for freeride, waves and freestyle.
› The most versatile length
› Great for all round freeriding
› Good low end and a good turning speed
› High jumps as you can “load” the lines
› The recommended size for a one bar quiver!
27m (40% Handling / 60% Power)
The extra length means extra power, you get a little more range out of your quiver by adding this bar with the longer lines. They are also great for jumping as you can really “load” the lines when you edge and send the kite back through the window.
› Enormous low-end
› Huge jumps
› Lots of lift
