North Kiteboarding Vario Footstraps:

 

North Vario Footstraps Kite Surf Board

 

The tried and tested Vario Combo is once again an integral part of North's collection. The Vario Combo has been completely reworked and is now easier to mount, more compatible and more comfortable.

 

The new design of the Vario Buckles features modified strap insertions that substantially simplify mounting. The ergonomically shaped Vario Pad still convinces with its high comfort and the proven anti-slip structure guarantees a firm grip in all situations.

 

The new Vario Strap offers increased size adjustment through the optimized Velcro closure. Adjusting the size is now much quicker and easier. This is particularly important if you have to use neoprene booties in cold conditions or if different riders use the same board.

The Vario Combo is compatible with all North Kiteboarding boards of any product generation.

 

North Kiteboarding Entity (NTT) Footstraps:

 

North Entity Footstraps Kite Surf Board

 

North Kiteboarding know every foot is different. The new Entity Combo now comes with a whole range of innovative features such as the NTT ContactPad or the NTT SplitStrap. The entire product once again sets new standards in the evolution of kite sports. The NTT is quick and easy to mount. It offers a variety of settings for a perfect fit.

 

The NTT has been designed and tested for use together with the new Track System. “The Track” is the new mounting system of our twintips. In connection with The Track, the NTT unfolds its full potential of individual settings, many of which are completely new in kite sports.

 

The NTT Contact Pad consists of the new, redesigned EVA footpad and the NTT ContactFrame. The ergonomically shaped footpad was developed in cooperation with the leading experts in ergonomics. The Hexagonal Density Control Structure is a new feature. This structure helps reduce pressure in sensitive areas of the foot and contributes to the pad’s low weight. The newly designed Anti-Slip surface ensures a good grip, even in very rough landings and radical moves. Furthermore, the pad is supplied with three NTT Heel Cushions of varying hardness: “soft” for more comfort, “hard” for better control and “medium” for the golden mean.

 

 

The NTT ContactFrame is the intelligent basis of the entire footpad that is made of fiberglass reinforced plastic. Its weight-optimized construction perfectly adapts to the shape of our boards. The advantage of this design and material is that the board’s flex characteristics are not influenced in any way. The NTT Contact Frame envelops the footpad and reliably transfers forces to the board. The NTT ContactPad has direct contact with the board, which enhances the board feeling. For even better fit, the NTT ContactPad is available in two sizes (S/M + L/XL)! The entire package combines individual fit, comfort, control and functional design on a completely new level!

 

Available with North Vario or Entity Combo Pads:

North Kiteboarding Vario Multi Adjustable Footstraps:

The Multi Adjustable Footstraps offers you a wide range of footstrap sizes and positions with only one strap. Apart from the size you can also adjust the strap's symmetry and width. Once fitted to the width and shape of your foot, the strap can be adjusted in size as usual.

Description

The North X-Ride 2018 is a true all-terrain machine that blazes through the roughest chop with ease and comfort. The round template and curvy scoop line are responsible for the X-Ride’s unique blend of comfort and smoothness while also promoting its superior carving abilities.

 

Extremely versatile, freeriding, busting out the latest freestyle tricks or even at home in waves! The flex is medium, giving the X-Ride a soft and smooth ride over choppy water.

 

Whether you are into freeriding, big air, freestyle or smashing waves the X-Ride will deliver. Being so good at carving makes it especially fun in the waves and lots of riders enjoy playing in the surf on the X-Ride.

 

The outline shape is also a little narrower on the 2018 X-ride in the tips, which allows the board to carve amazingly well. Lots of riders have the X-Ride as their Twintip wave board as the rail-to-rail turns are easily executed with impeccable control. The rail shape and increased length gives you unsurpassed grip and upwind performance.

 

For 2018 there is also a new 2 Channel mono concave bottom shape, which improves the ride even more. The softer flex makes the ride really forgiving but the board will still pop allowing you to boost airs and have some soft landings.

 

The X-Ride is the ultimate all round kiteboard, happy doing whatever you decide to do. Waves, freestyle, freeride, choose the X-Ride and ride the way you want, when you want.

 

The slightly larger swept back fins are not only great to drive you through high speed carves, but also for loading up hard and boosting massive airs at will.

 

Unique design features such as a full concave bottom, rounded rails, medium flex and special carving fins make the North X-Ride a dream board in rough or choppy conditions.

 

The North 2018 X-Ride is an all terrain twin tip perfect for doing huge jumps, freestyle and power carves in the surf. The North X-Ride’s aesthetically harmonic features and smooth ride still make it the most versatile board in the North Kiteboarding range.

 

North Kiteboarding Track System:
Kiteboarding is evolving at an amazing pace. As a result of this development, the demands on the material are increasing as well.

 

Due to new tricks and an increased variety of people who engage in the sport, it has become more and more important that the entire equipment can be individually adjusted.

 

For this reason North have set out to develop a multifunctional mounting system for their boards. What North envisaged was a solution that would allow a wide range of adjustments as well as quick and easy mounting of the footpads without having a negative influence on the board’s flex and weight.

 

The result of this effort is a system that meets all our requirements. North proudly present the new THE TRACK SYSTEM!

 

North Kiteboarding Track System

 

The Track System features two ultrasonic welded tracks made of fibreglass reinforced plastic that are laminated into their boards in the production process. The tracks are then CNC milled out of the finished board.

 

The Track Nuts provide the connection with the footpad. The Track Nuts are made of non-corrosive brass and can be freely moved along the track to both sides. This system offers a whole range of possibilities to mount your footpads. One particular advantage is that the flexible tracks do not interfere with the finely-tuned flex of North boards.

 

North X-Ride Responsive Flex:

A truly versatile machine that feels easy and comfortable from the moment you place your feet in the straps, the X-Ride appeals to a wide audience and a variety of styles.


The new responsive centre flex concept allows for earlier planing while also dampening and absorbing the chop for an incredibly smooth feel. A refined, rounder rocker and slightly wider outline have further tightened North X-Ride’s turning radius for venturing out into the surf and make it easy to find the release point for take-offs.

 

The control is further enhanced by a wood sandwich construction and soft flex characterisitcs.

 

The concave bottom in combination with the round rail gives you maximum grip and a smooth water flow off the edge, increasing control, performance and comfort.

The soft flex and good absorption allow you to ride effortlessly through chop, while the new S-bend fins give you outstanding grip and acceleration allowing for big jumps, high speed turns and performance in waves you didn't think was possible with a twin tip.

A great freestyle board, even in the toughest conditions, the North X-Ride 2018 makes riding easier and lets you focus on the tricks instead of trying to control the board.

 

Who is the board designed for:
The North X-Ride 2018, with its wide range of use, gives you great value for the money and is the clear choice for anyone who wants one board for all conditions. The North X-Ride lets you enjoy the versatility of control, excellent carving, jumping and freestyle.

 

Comfortable, solid grip on edge and no spray at all in your face makes the North X-Ride 2018 a board you can step on and instantly feel right at home.

North X-Ride 2018 Features / Technology:

 

3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich:
2018 is a big leap forward in board technology as North Kiteboarding introduces the 3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich in combination with the Responsive Centre Flex. Combining the unique properties of wood core and carbon fibre, with an advanced flex pattern from a CNC milled 3D deck and concave bottom, the 2018 North Kiteboard range is setting a new standard in performance, comfort and durability.

 

Technology Leader:
The unique thing about the 3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich is the fully 3D shaped wood core with the advanced deck flex pattern and concave bottom. This type of advanced step cap sandwich construction, in combination with a concave bottom has previously only been possible to manufacture with foam cores, which have certain limitations regarding flex, core thickness and shear strength. Thanks to North's strong R&D focus and collaboration with one of the world’s leading snowboard factories, North Kiteboarding is the first company in the world to introduce 3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich. This technology opens up a new door for flex development. In terms of kiteboards it means a significant performance boost and a whole new level of comfort for the rider.

Comfort:
The strong, fibrous structure of the wood core allow for a thinner core profile and a higher amount of bending compared with a traditional foam core, without the risk of breakage. The result is a board with a greater amount of flex, working as an active suspension while riding, providing a smooth and controlled feeling even through rough water.

 

Responsiveness:
Thanks to the natural flex characteristics and spring back of the wood core, our new boards have a responsive and lively feel on the water, without sacrificing the comfort.
A further step in technology is the Responsive Centre Flex. The result is a highly responsive, yet still forgiving board, with instant feedback to the rider’s input.

 

Control:
The 3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich construction has a higher amount of flex and torsion than a traditional foam core. This allows the board to quickly adapt to every impact from the water surface, giving the rider more space for mistakes, without the risk of loosing control. What the
rider will experience is a board that’s easy to set up for take off and forgiving in the landings, and maintains good grip when riding full speed through choppy water. On the North X-Ride 2018, the concave bottom keeps the board sucked to the surface of the water while effortlessly blasting through knee high chop, drawing full speed turns or carving in the waves.

 

Strength:
North's wood core has three times higher density than a standard foam core, and much greater strength and impact resistance. Fatigue resistance, the ability to withstand stress caused by thousands of impacts and hard landings over time, has been significantly improved. Heel dents, split cores and cracked laminates are history. The new 3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich is the strongest construction we’ve ever made, reassuring a long
life and functionality for your kiteboard.

 

3D Decks Responsive Centre Flex:
For 2018 North have worked hard to further enhance the feeling and performance of our twin tips through innovation. A harmonic flex from front to rear means that the rocker line is actively changing and adapting to the water’s surface, which gives you pro active dampening and absorption of chop. Furthermore, the continuous flex offers increased power flow for hard pop, making take-offs easier and more predictable. Torsional Absorption
System offers smoother, stickier landings, a more solid feel through the water, more grip on the heel-side edge and consequently better upwind performance. Flex Tips give you more control when combined with lower bottom curve as well as responsive, controllable pop and cushioned, comfortable landings.

 

Absorption Flex Tips:

The flex tips are reinforced with transversal ribs for increased torsional stiffness to create a more aggressive edge grip and pop while the longtitudinal flex remains moderate for a smooth and forgiving ride. The result is maximum performance, control and durability in combination with a high level of comfort.

 

Super Flight Core:
Keeps the kiteboard extremely light and responsive yet durable enough to withstand all the abuse that this style of riding can dish out!

 

Medium Flex:
Allowing you to ride a majority of water conditions without compromising on performance.

Reviews

Great North Board! Gary Davies

I have to endorse this product as it truly is worth every penny and has progressed my kiteboarding so much further than my previous board.

First off - its a North board! If you want quality and a solid feel from a company that have been into water sports for so long - then you are going to get it from the North X-Ride!

The board itself is nice and springy with plenty of pop to get through the waves, land your jumps and is excellent for cutting through the water at speed.

 

I have never gone faster on this board or as high and the flex tips really do hold you on the turns.

 

The quality is throughout on the footstraps, bindings, fins and grab handle too and all come nicely packaged with instructions!

 

If you are after one board that does it all - get yourself one of these!
