North Neo 2017- high performance wave-freeride

The NEO is the ultimate wave riding weapon for all the riders out there who love to
ride surfboards, offering excellent freeride abilities as a plus. It is the go-to kite
for our pro team competing on the Strapless World Tour and the kite of choice for
wave riders all over the world. For 2018 the goal was to further improve the handling
and responsiveness of the kite. To achieve this, our designers had to think outside the
box, and they came up with a unique concept. Special “Flex Segments” have been built
into the leading edge allowing the kite to twist even more than before when turning.
This has vastly improved the handling capabilities of the kite making it one of the
most dynamic wave kites on the market today. The kite is also exceedingly stable in the
air, with excellent drift, making it perfect for freeriding. If you want to get the
most out of every wave session, the NEO is the kite for you!surfboard.

Quality progression
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. North represents durability, timeless performance, and the highest possible quality control standards.
Re - Launch bungees
In order to make the relaunch easier and to avoid any possible line tangling, we've added Relaunch Bungees at the kite tip. The bungees keep the lines lying slick against the inside of the leading edge, preventing any line from going over the top of the kite during the relaunch.
Self Rescue handles
These loops attached to the inside of the wingtips make it easier to hold the kite for bodydrag rescue.
North Adaptive tip
Since 2012, Rebel, Evo, Neo and Fuse feature the new “Adaptive Tip”. In recent years, there has been a trend leaning towards more reactive kites with even lighter sheeting forces than in the past. Such kites are really comfortable, lively for wave riding and offer more forgiving kite loops because they pivot around the wingtip. However, comparison tests have shown that our team riders and testers actually prefer kites with a harder bar feel because they offer better feedback, precise steering and more dynamic turning, which in turn creates more power. The new “Adaptive Tip” allows users to easily change the sheeting force and turning performance through a simple back pigtail adjustment, allowing you to customize your kite to your desired style and feel.
Airport valve
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.
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.
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.

For 2018 the excellent Trust Bar has some new features while retaining some of the superior functionality that makes this one of the best 4 line bars on the market. The chicken loops this year come in three different options; when you purchase your bar, you can choose the chicken loop that best suits your riding style. The industry leading Iron Heart IV safety system makes a welcome return; it has been enhanced with the addition of the Suicide Ring III. This new ring allows you to set up a suicide system while keeping the ring and the leash up and out of the way of the chicken loop. This increases your ability to quickly hook in and out after freestyle tricks. For 2018 there won’t be a separate 5th Element bar as before. Instead, you can purchase a 5th Element upgrade kit and turn the Trust Bar into a 5 line set-up.



4 lines
Single front line safety
The Quad bar can be upgraded to 5 lines
New suicide ring III for fixed suicide mode
Iron Heart V
