North Dyno 2013 Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
The North Dyno 2013 is the light-wind kite with undeniable Racing roots which also gives you fun and performance starting in the slightest breeze. As little as 5 knots!
The North Dyno offers parked power similar to a parafoil together with superior dynamic power, better depower, more nuanced bar feel, better turning speed and superior safety. The most significant change is that it is a five-strut kite.
The North Dyno is also a versatile kite that will fly on either four lines or five lines, complete superior performance and handling, light winds and lulls are handled with ease.
The Dyno’s optimized canopy profile offers unparalleled upwind performance and superior low-end grunt for steady and predictable parked power that carries you through wind lulls. Besides it’s impressive light wind abilities many of Dyno’s free-ride attributes, like steady bar feel, quick turning and generous depower, also happen to make it the number one choice for our world cup race team. With multiple world championship race titles to its name, the Dyno is clearly a highly competitive course-racing kite, but it is also equally at home free-riding and boosting huge jumps.
If you want to freeride, match with your friends or even enter the worldcup circus, the Dyno won’t disappoint you. The consistent pull makes it possible and also gets you through the lulls.
The five strut design is one of the main reasons North are able to offer thehuge depower. Low weight is clearly the Dyno’s main feature. To get it, several steps have been taken.
The Lazy Pump inflation system was eliminated because single-point inflation of course adds weight. Thinner bladder material and a lighter Dacron have been used in the inflatable elements. Two extra segments have been added into the arc between the quarter ribs, which produces a slightly truer aerofoil in the center lifting area.
Construction details that contribute crucially to function and durability remain in the North Dyno, others were eliminated. As a result, the 18-meter Dyno flys in winds that are barely perceptible.
Whether you're ripping apart waves, getting huge lofty jumps, or just blasting around on flat water, the 2011 North Dyno is a stylish 4 or 5-line all-terrain freeride / racing machine that gives you an unmatched "connected" feel and virtually limitless performance in all conditions.
Another change can be found in the chord wise (front to back) seams of the canopy. Where these in the past have been more of a “butt” type of seam they are now the stronger and smoother overlap seam. The improvement can quickly be seen in a canopy that is more wrinkle-free than in the past.
Whats the same and
The overall geometry remains the same because the Dynol's unique combination of arc, segmentation and strut configuration gives good stability, power, depower and flutter resistance. Multiple segments through the center of the canopy give good profile fidelity, while one straight segment on each side gives a flat profile where it can do the most good in resisting unwanted luffing and flutter. Five struts give needed structure while allowing for good performance at low inflation pressures.

North 2013 DYNO Trust 5th Element Control Bar System:
I managed to get out on the new North Dyno 16m last weekend. I used a 5 line set up but the kite works on 4 as well, meaning that it will suit whatever bar you currently have. There are 2 knots on the front bridles they are clearly marked, 4 line and 5 line - just use the appropriate knot for each bar and that’s it.
When I got the kite out the bag it was one of those days where a few eager people had blown up their 12's and 14's but they weren't doing much.
Obviously desperate to try a new toy I got the Dyno in the air. it seemed to have a good bit of grunt so tried a swinging jump and it took me off the floor, great!
North ditched the 1 pump system to save in
the region of 3.5kgs, the weight of the kite bag gives no
indication that it’s a large kite. The kite is a lightweight
build but still looks a usual tough North kite.
Steering is responsive for such a large kite, It's as good if not better than the 14m's I've used over recent years.
Power delivery is really smooth and the bar pressure not at all heavy.
Jumps are floaty and it took me by surprise what lift the kite generated in such low winds. Like most people I have steered away from kites bigger than 14m over the past few years but I'm very happy to have the Dyno in the van now!
Use it with a larger board/directional and you'll be having fun in less than 10mph of wind!
I'm 72kgs so I went for the 16m. I haven't
yet tested the top end of the kite but I already know there
is heaps of overlap with my 12m.
