North 2020 Reach Freeride / Freestyle Kite

A lively and playful all-rounder for big jumps, upwind performance and effortless relaunch, our Reach Performance Freeride is the one kite you?ll always reach for. Evolved from a calculated fusion of the Orbit, Pulse and Carve, this versatile kite is designed to excel in every condition, from wave-riding to boosts, loops and freestyle tricks, and is the perfect match for our Sonar Foils. The fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while it?s lighter 3-strut construction delivers quick, responsive steering in even the lightest wind. In the larger 13m and 15m sizes the Reach is a powerful lightwind kite, designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in.



  • Your desert island kite - Lively and playful all-round performer, with unparalleled versatility and wind range.
  • Quick responsive steering - Light bar pressure and light impulse for a fast response with tight turning radius.
  • Confident Relaunch - Moderate LE Diameter and swept design helps the kite to release quickly from the water.
  • Tactile Handling - Excellent for wave-riding and foiling.
  • Upwind Drive - Efficient, draft-forward profile.
  • Travel Light - Lighter weight 3-strut construction, ready for any adventure.
  • Fun and Nimble - With effortless park and ride and an open arc design for boosts and loops with a reliable catch.
  • Lightwind Optimised - Stable and balanced fuller profile delivers power and efficiency in every condition.

Sizes:
4m, 5m, 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 11m, 12m, 14m

Features:

Profile transition panels
We've added an extra panel that connects to the leading edge seam to ensure a precise lateral profile shape is maintained as close to the leading edge as possible, creating a smooth transition from the segmented leading edge to the curved canopy. This results in a more aerodynamic and efficient airflow and less turbulence.

DuraLite seam protection
Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath and forms a lightweight durable buffer to lift the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protect the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.

Steering impulse option
Bar pressure/steering impulse wing tip tuning options let you fine tune the kite to your personal preference.

Low-drag bridle lines
Spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines with less parasitic drag for greater aerodynamic performance. Our new manufacturing method to pre-load and measure the bridle lines before cutting improves accuracy and consistency. This combined with quality materials, results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity.

HyperFlow inflation system
High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed.

No-pulley bridles
Simplified. Less breakage. Removing the plastic pulleys from within the load-bearing part of the kite improves safety and your connection to the kite. The result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling as the kite powers more evenly through the turn.

Kevlar reinforced strut system
For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge.

Exo-skeleton structure
A durable frame around the perimeter of the kite made from stretch-resistant Techno Force 160gsm Dacron material. The Exoskeleton helps the transition where the Kevlar reinforced strut system meets the lighter canopy material. It adds durability, strength and elongation control, protecting the canopy and making the kite more responsive in the steering and depower. The result is a durable kite that can hold its profile for increased performance and lift, but is also dynamic, flexible and can twist to turn.

Teijin Techno Force D2
Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and high endurance. Teijin Techno Force has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.

Phenomenal loft and hangtime
Wide Flat at 2-stage arc supported by reinforced exo-skeleton frame.

Powerful
High performance 5-strut kite for incredible stability in a wide range of conditions.

Incredible upwind performance
Reduced leading edge diameter gives low drag profile for greater power and efficiency.

High aspect sweep design
Allows more area in the center of the kite for efficiency and easy roll to relaunch.

Controlled response
Light bar pressure for effortless steering or just park and ride.

2020 North Reach

- 8/20/2020

Such an awesome kite. Super docile for my wife. She had her longest and best session ever. My turn on kite was awesome as well. I normally fly a 17m Zephyr and love the hang time and continuous pull. I was surprised how well the 11m Reach handled si...
