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.

Trailing Edge Force Control:

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.

Air Port Valve:
For 2018 all kites are equipped with the completely redesigned Airport Valve II. The Airport Valve’s II unique construction has several advantages, but first and foremost it saves time rigging and gives you more time on the water. The valve works with any conventional pump or compressor as it can be connected directly to the bayonet insert of the hose.

Anti-Snag:
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

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.

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.

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.

Description

The North Mono is not only a light wind specialist but is also great for freeriding offering an easy setup and jumping properties. The Mono has an outstanding low end range, with the 5m2 and 7m2 models working particularity well with surfboards and lighter breezes.

 

It is perfect for travelling and can perform on a twin tip, directional or foilboard. The smaller sizes are ideal for fast progression, freeriders, wave riders and foil boarders alike. The kite has amazing low-end performance, and it flies upwind with ease. The relaunch is very fast and easy; thanks to the Delta design the kite doesn’t stick to the water.

 

The bar pressure is light, while there is a progressive power development as you sheet in, making it very easy to ride. Handling on the Mono is very dynamic, with fast, reactive steering the kite works well in all situations, also on foil boards. While the weight of the kite has been kept to a minimum, there are plenty of reinforcements in the right places to ensure it is very robust too. If you want a great all rounder with an incredible low-end for easy freeriding duties, the Mono is it!

 

Stripping it back to basics, the Mono takes inspiration from the Neo where a soft bar feel and linear power development are key. The Mono is easy to relaunch, offers a stable canopy and a very smooth handling. A very light but also very robust kite in a simple package. Completely new to the range is a 15sqm for light wind riding on a twintip, directional or foil!

 

You can also use the power of the Mono to catch a wave, crank up the depower and shred the wave with zero pull allowing for the ultimate ride in the surf. Its lightweight allows the kite to drift and hang in the air as you ride down the line; it also makes it the perfect travel companion when weight is an issue.

 

The Mono has a comfortable and forgiving feeling via the bar but still progressive. The turning speed is quick when needed and the kite is also great for easy jumping and excellent hangtime.

 

With relaunch abilities worthy of an applause, great power delivery and optimum sheet-and-go, you’re sure to fall in “love at first flight” with the North Mono. Ideally paired with a larger twintip or wave board, in light-medium strength winds the Mono will blow you away!

 

The Mono can be ridden on 4 or 5 lines and is an ideal kite for riders with a keen eye on simplicity and ease of use. Super durable and made with North's highest quality materials and construction methods.

 

The 5th line design, in addition to providing safety, gives the Mono its short and aggressive power stroke that is up to 30% shorter than most bridled kites.

 

This means huge range and top-end comfort on those super windy days and the ability to instantly turn the power off and on at will as you link your turns down the line.

 

North Mono 4 / 5 Line control:

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

 

The overall shape helps the Mono 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 prefect 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!

 

For 2018 the Mono features 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 North 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:

Profile:

Since North were looking for softer, less aggressive- feeling small kites, they reasoned that flatter profiles, which “pop” less when sheeted in, might be the way to go. This is exactly how it turned out.

 

A 7 percent reduction in profile depth at the centre of the canopy gave a softer feel, and a further reduction of about 8 percent gave an even softer feel. Interestingly, this overall 15 percent reduction in profile depth did not result in less low end power.

 

Line Attachments:

Most obvious is the change to a “V” attachment for the back pigtail. This has two benefits: (1) it permits a better, cleaner relaunch bungee design, and (2) it gives a more solid bar feel when the bar is pulled in for maximum
power.


One side benefit of the new relaunch bungee design is that the back pigtail “V” and back flying lines are less likely to snag on the tip of the leading edge.

 

Tunable Bar Pressure:
The 2018 Mono features an adjustment in the back line bridle that permits the rider to opt for greater or lesser bar pressure. Low bar pressure reduces strain on arms and makes turn initiation easier, but gives less feedback about kite position and load condition. Higher bar pressure is a little more athletic and is often preferred by more experienced riders.

 

Cam Battens:

CamBattens give the kite two key advantages: Lower drag at normal angles of attack and better profile stability at low angles of attack!

 

At normal angles of attack, the CamBattens keep the shape smooth and stable along the front part of the canopy.

 

Aerodynamic theory tells us that this is the most important part of the profile for generating power with low drag.

 

As you let the bar out to de-power, the wind tries to collapse the front part of the canopy and push the kite back.

 

CamBattens resist this by keeping a full, stable shape near the leading edge, allowing the kite to fly at lower angles of attack for more depower.

 

Combine the CamBattens with Trim Tips, the new tip geometry lets the kite tilt even farther, and de-power to the maximum.

 

All of this gives the North Neo a very direct feel on the bar, better low end performance due to reduced drag, and a much wider wind range. On the water you will notice that the wind just seems a lot smoother, with less holes and gusts.

 

Construction:
In 2014 North implemented several construction changes in their school kites – the kites that get the hardest, most unremitting beating of any.


One example of these, admittedly subtle, construction changes is the Fusion 10 strut-LE joint. Without going into too much detail, North can simply say that this method of attaching strut to the leading edge is more precise, repeatable and robust than any they have used in the past.


Now that this joint has a year of hard use by schools and riders, North feel confident putting it on all their models.

 

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.


North 2004 - 2017 5th Element Control Bars can also be used but upgrading to the Iron Heart Chicken Loop is recommended.

Depower Control Bar

North Mono 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.





North Rebel 07 - 5th Element

 

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 Rebel 07 - 5th Element

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 Rebel 07 - 5th Element

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.
