North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEINorth Juice Progression Q:

Progression Q defines North's progressive commitment to quality, innovation and premiu products.


North's design and engineer visionaries are blended with premium technology and the latest production techniques, ensuring that their brand remains one step ahead of the rest.


Kiteboarding is a way of life, and for North a kite is more than just a kite; it’s a statement and a reflection of your inner style. For more than 10 years, their innovative breakthrough in materials and technical design has allowed them to remain one of the leading brands of the industry. North believe there’s no substitute for anything other than high performance and premium quality products.

Their evolutionary systems are a result of our ingenious in-house designers and research and development team, and consider their technological advancements as key contributors to the growth and safety of the sport.

 

There are 3 aspects to this approach that complement each other and have to work together seamlessly:

1. Materials and Hardware
2. Employees and productions techniques
3. Construction Details and Design


Technoforce D2 Canopy:
Teijin is the world’s leading supplier for polyester fabrics and sail materials for all kinds of marine sports. North use the remarkably durable Teijin Dacron for our leading edge, struts, wingtips and wherever high tension or an applied load is found. Technoforce D2 is used for North's canopy. Technoforce D2 was an exclusive coating development for North Kiteboarding, which has proven its superiority in durability and dynamics since we started using it.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Glued Zig-Zag Stitches:

Every single seam is stitched with a zigzag sewing technique. They are first glued then stitched. The result is a clean, good-looking and highly durable stitch, which supports the overall stability of the kite.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Air Port Valve:
For 2017 all kites are equipped with the completely redesigned Airport Valve II.

 

The valve works with any conventional pump or compressor as it can be connected directly to the bayonet insert of the hose. 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 Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Computerised Cutting:
Computerized cutting ensures millimetre precise working pieces, a minimum of waste and a maximum of efficiency of the cutting process itself. This way the high expectations of our two kite designers can be met to their full satisfaction.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Abrasion Reinforcement:
All areas exposed to scuffing strengthened with STPU reinforcements, renowned for its durability against abrasion.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Fusion Strut:

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line,which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Computer Sewing:
All critical seams are done with computer supported sewing machines. This avoids human mistakes and inconsistencies, increases the productivity and reduces waste from cut off materials; it is the only way to create a perfect and consistent result every time.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
TQM Method :
A detailed quality control system has been developed, controlling every step starting with the delivery of raw materials to the factory and ending with the final delivery of kites to our customers. In between, every single stage is optimized to the smallest detail. The quality check card is the key to keeping precise control over the process for every individual kite at every stage.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Kook-Proof Connectors:
The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Self Rescue Handles:
The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Anti Snag: The Anti Snag webbing prevents the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Zipperless Struts :
A strut without zippers means less weight, and results in smoother flying characteristics and increased durability. These advantages outweigh the slightly more tedious process required when changing a strut bladder.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Lines by Teufelberger:
Teufelberger is a leading supplier for ropes, ranging from climbing, sailing and paragliding to specialized ropes for kitesurfing. North Kiteboarding uses Teufelberger products for lines and bridles.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Polyurethane Bladders:
All bladders are produced of high quality Polyurethane. This material is known for its high elasticity in different temperatures and resistance to pressure. The modern welding technique ensures durable seams and binds the material together perfectly.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI

Load Distribution Panels:
As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam:
The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Trailing Edge Reinforcements:
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 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 fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Lazy Pump:
The North Kiteboarding Lazy Pump system enables the inflation of the kite from just one valve. Clips close off struts from leading edge to prevent unwanted airflow in case of damage or simply to only deflate the leading edge

Description

North introduce the Juice 2017! When North designed the kite they has a set of goals to achieve, it had to be fast, fly upwind with ease and deliver smooth power in the lightest of winds!

 

The Juice features a lightweight design that delivers impressive low end power whilst retaining a dynamic bar feeling and responsive handling. The Juice is available in two sizes, 15m and 18m. For smaller riders the 15m is the perfect lightwind companion while the heavier riders will benefit from the extra power of the 18m.

 

The fourth generation of the hugely popular light wind freeride kite, the North Juice 2017 is ideal for those days on the beach when the wind doesn’t arrive. For 2017 there have been some tweaks to the canopy profiles on the 15m2 to make it faster and help it to climb back up to the top of the window during down loops.

 

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, enabling them to ensure the kite offers the optimum performance for light wind freeride action. You will 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.

 

Built around a three-strut platform, North have 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. Don’t be left standing on the beach, get out there and improve your skills with the new, totally refreshing Juice!

 

Big airstyle kites have a great wind range and jumping but tend to be slow turning. The Juice delivers all of this, but in absolutely light wind conditions! The Juice combines the best out of many worlds: handling like a proper small 3 strut kite, upwind and light wind performance like a race kite.


This light wind revolution is based roughly on a 3-strut arc, strut count, profile and outline, but with the Juice, the aspect ratio has been stretched from 4.5 to 5.3, and the leading edge diameter has been shrunk.
The centre strut is conventional - so as to improve overall stability.


The result is an everyday fun kite for the light wind days you´ve always been waiting for this some more knots to pick up. Now you´ve got the alternative! If you lack some juice – the Juice is the right choice!

 

North Juice 4 / 5 Line control:

The North Juice 2017 can be ridden on 4 or 5 line control bars, uniting new-school and free-ride in one kite. The Juice‘s shape offers great sheet and-go riding, excellent wind range and high de-power.

 

The overall shape helps the Juice turn quickly and predictably while the new bridle geometry stabilizes the arc for a soft, consistent bar feel and extreme back-stall resistance.

 

The 4-line mode boasts an innovative new safety system and bar-feel perfect for those who prefer soft, easy handling.

 

In 5-line mode the 5th Element additionally stabilizes the arc, providing very direct bar-feel for new-school riding and the ultimate 5th line safety.

 

Auto re-launch means that you can go for it and never have to worry about re-launchng your kite. Just take your hands off the bar and let the kite do the work for you!

 

Construction:

The North Juice 2017 is built tough to take some thrashings and the new connection between strut and leading edge easily withstands the high loads of the delta shape.

 

The North Juice's precise steering response always delivers predictable and controlled jumps even if your take-off is not perfect.

 

The innovative Bridge Profile geometry optimizes airflow and gets you up and planing in extremely light air even when the Juice is fully over-sheeted.

 

This profile balances the load distribution around the leading edge which prevents the Juice from ever back-stalling and is the key to it's acceleration in light wind.

 

With its simple bridle configuration the Juice can be used with a four-line bar or with the North 5th Element Control Bar.

 

In 4-Line mode the Juice is ideal for everyone who favours easy water relaunch and simple handling, while the 5th Element mode additionally stabilizes the kite for optimized performance, direct handling and the best safety.

 

Features:

 

  • Good light wind performance
  • Lightweight Construction
  • Great Low-End Wind Range
  • Easy Unhooking Ability
  • Forgiving flying characteristics
  • Fast turning High durability
  • 4-or 5-line setup
  • Solid Dacron trailing edge
  • Sizes: 15m / 18m

Aramid Reinforcements:

For 2017 are the Aramid Reinforcement, added in highly reinforced exposed areas such as the Micro Batten pockets and the leading edge scuff pads. These reinforcements reduce wear from everyday use, and increase the durability and life of your kite.

 

5th Element Line with 4-Line Safety:
The North Juice 2017 can be flown with four or with five lines, the fifth line provides 100% depower and maximum safety even in high wind conditions.

 

Kook Proof Connectors:
These connectors prevent the number one cause of kite accidents by ensuring that the front lines cannot be attached to the back of the kite and back lines cannot be attached to the front.

 

Air Port Valve:

North Juice 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

 

The Juice is equipped with the brand new Air Port Valve. The valves unique construction has several advantages, but first and foremost it saves time setting up. The valve works with any conventional pump or compressor as it can be connected directly to the bayonet insert of the hose. Additionally, the air passage of the new valve makes it possible to pass four times more air than before. The valve is also 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. Hence loosing air when not wanted is not possible, as the valve is closed after deflation by turning the bayonet completely to the left before taking it off. A short sizzling noise of a very small amount of air escaping from the interspace when taking of the
bayonet is normal.

 

The new Air Port Valve can also be easily operated with neoprene gloves thanks to the large diameter. Due to its very flat construction, it also prevents line snag. The valve enables fatigue-proof inflation due to the bigger air passage. Even bigger kites will be inflated within seconds!

 

Self Rescue Handles:

These loops attached to the inside of the wingtips make it easier to hold the kite for body drag rescue.

 

Low-Drag High Pressure Ribs:
It's not true that all types and sizes of kite need to have as little aerodynamic drag as possible. However North like to control drag by putting it where they want it and elminating it where they don't want it.

 

To the end of elminating undesired drag North have created the lowest drag ribs available.

 

From the low profile and correct orientation of the seams to the small overall diameter and tiny, low turbulence rib ends, the North Juice ribs are designed to reduce undesirable skin friction and wake drag to a minimum .

 

Segmented Leading Edge:
For all heavily stressed areas, North canopies are manufactured from top quality 170g or 175g Dacron.

 

This material is equipped with the best possible breaking strain characteristics with the usual kite materials, and moreover, it will never delaminate.

 

Relaunch Bungies:

In order to make the relaunch easier and to avoid any possible line tangling, North have added Relaunch Bungies at the kite tips.

 

The bungies keep the lines flying slick against the inside of the leading edge, preventing any line going over the top of the kite during the relaunch.

 

Leading Edge Bridles:
The leading edge bridles creates the necessary stability for the North Juice's consistent and direct handling.

North 2017 Juice Trust Control Bar System:

 

North Kites 5th Element 2009 Bar with Lines

Riders of all levels, from pros to newcomers, will all gain substantial advantages from the new North Trust Bar 5th Element system.

 

Safety - perform all moves with safety leash
Water Start - without swimming
Performance - increased performance due to wider wind range

 

The 5th Element will come already set up so there are no hassles on your first day and it doesn’t take any more effort to wind up or unwind them, and you don’t feel anything else but better performance when flying them.

 

All kites can be flown with the same bar, just the short line attached in the middle of the leading edge has to be adjusted to the different kite sizes. Instructions will be attached to all bars or upgrades.

 

Line Length Advisor:
Different styles of riding, different kite models or the kite size can be influencing factors that require different line length.

 

In order to further increase this synergy effect the 19 and 22 m lines come now on a medium bar (49 / 42 cm) and the 24, 27 and 30 m lines on a large bar (53 / 46 cm).

 

The bar is the riders’ first point of contact with the kite. In order to achieve a maximum in comfort of riding it is essential to match the kite and the riders’ style of riding to the correct line length.

 

19m (70% Handling / 30% Power)
Super fast and reactive tuning speeds, shorter lines are best for extreme freestyle and crazy kiteloops. They are also excellent for wave riding, where kite turning speed is important. Wakestyle riders like the close connection to the kite too. The disadvantage is you lose some of the low end power.

 

  • Fast and reactive turning
  • Extreme Freestyle, Wakestyle and Waves
  • Tight, super fast and hard kite loops

22m (60% Handling / 40% Power)
The favourite length for freestyle and waves! These 22m lines are still great for getting lots of speed from the kite, perfect for wave riding and freestyle. Not as extreme as the 19m lines, they still lose a bit of low end power.

 

  • Reactive turning
  • Fast Kite Loops
  • Great setup for freestyle riders
  • Best choice for waveriding

24m (50% Handling / 50% Power)
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.

 

  • Most Versatile Length
  • Great for all-round freeriding
  • Good low end and a good turning speed
  • Most Versatile Length
  • 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, 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 Power
  • Huge Jumps
  • Lots of Lift

30m (25% Handling / 75% Power )
The choice of the North Kiteboarding Race Team, longer lines mean even more power, but the kite turns at a slower rate. This suits racers looking for the ultimate in pull in the often gusty and light conditions they are faced with.

 

  • Perfect for light winds
  • Extra Power
  • North Kiteboarding Race Team Approved

The bar is your first point of contact with the kite, Iit is the connection between you and your kite and it is important to get it right. And it’s actually an easy formula: The shorter the lines, the more direct and faster the kite turns. The longer the lines, the more power you can generate out of them! Choose a North Trust Bar, and choose the right line set up for your style of riding.

 



North Dice 2014 Kite

 

Safety: The 5th Element line set permits anyone, from novice to pro, to easily and conveniently use a kite leash. The leash can be short and inconspicuous, or it can be a long handle-pass leash like the pros use. In either case, releasing the chickenloop quick-release while leashed-in causes the kite to depower immediately and totally and with no line tangles.

 

Whether you ride unhooked, spin, try a water relaunch for the first time or practice a handle pass, all maneuvers, including the latest tricks, can now be performed with the safety leash of the 5th Element.

As soon as you pull the Quick Release or let go of the bar it slips up the safety line. The kite is then completely depowered and comes down without twisting the lines.

One additional benefit of the 5th Element is that it makes dragging upwind to reach a lost board much easier.


North Dice 2014 Kite

Waterstart:
When the kite is on the water after you crashed or let go of the bar, the 5th Element system allows you to relaunch without swimming

a) Keeping tension on the middle line, reload the chickeloop if necessary, and hook in if you want.
b) To get started again, use the middle line to pull the bar toward you.
c) If you pull the back lines simultaneously, the kite will slowly come off the water.
d) The harder you pull on the side of the bar, the faster and lower the kite will start in.
e) If you only pull gently, the kite will move as usual to the edge of the wind window for relaunch.
f) No unsafe pulls or drags. No more swimming!


North Dice 2014 Kite

Performance: The 5th Element stabilizes the kite’s arc and thus clearly increases performance. Enhanced profile stiffness brings considerable advantages in depowered situations and increases the kite’s wind range. As a result, the kite flies closer to the wind window and responds more directly to steering impulses.

 

While arc-shaped inflatable kites have a marvellous simplicity, they also have a tendency to change shape as the wind increases and decreases and as load goes from front lines to back lines or vice versa. While it's possible to control such unstable tendencies in conventional four-line kites, such control comes at a cost: more drag.

 

The 5th Element line set offers a low-drag solution to maintaining kite shape stability, thereby permitting higher performance in every respect.

5th Element-equipped kites have greater high end, greater range, and quicker turning.

 

Because of the better high end they also have better lift, which makes for higher jumps. Because low end power is in no way reduced by the 5th Element line set, such kites also have excellent hang time.
