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

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. P L EASE NOTE :

Always deflate via the inflation valve (Air Port Valve) first, before opening the dump valve. This procedure will prevent unwanted twisting of the valve.

L a z y Pu m p 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.

The 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.

A short sizzling noise, which is a very small amount of air escaping from the interspace of the valve, when taking off the bayonet fitting is normal. The valve enables fatigue-proof inflation due to the bigger air passage. Even bigger kites will be inflated within seconds!

Step 1 - Coating of the single yarn

› Higher diagonal stiffness than normal canopy

materials. › Higher performance: the stiffer overall structure

stabilizes the kite and makes it faster. › Crisp and very direct response to steering input.

Due to the dynamic pressure forces on kites, the stiffness of a kite is immensely important in relation to the flying characteristics of a kite.

Step 2 - Weaving of the coated single yarns to one fabric

o n e o f t h e m a i n fac to r s f o r ag e i n g o f k i t e s i s uv l i g h t

UV light strongly influences the ageing of the kite. Exposing your kite for too long to UV light can reduce the crisp steering and flying feeling – sometimes within days. D o u b l e c o at i n g

Step 3 - Coating of the whole canopy material

Due to the Double-Coating of D2, the material stays crisp for longer. The unique coating procedure is not just protecting the final canopy, but every single yarn is coated before the final weaving process and therefore every single yarn is protected additionally. Even if the coating comes off the first layer, the yarns themselves stay coated! Not just protected from the sun, but also from salt crystals, sand, small stones and other sharp objects.

However, the kite canopy material stays a delicate fabric. Fins and sharp objects can cause small scratches when being used for securing the kite on the ground. These may appear harmless, but can destroy the kite during the next session when forces impact the canopy.

INTRODUCTION

Every kite we design is aimed at a specific type of rider and certain styles of riding. We constantly optimise the attributes of each kite to excel in certain areas that we feel will benefit our riders. To help you discover where you fit in with our product range, and to help you decide which kite best suits your style of riding we have designed a compass that segments different riding styles. The compass will help you to see where each kite excels and which kite is best for you.

The Roto Head permits you to untangle the lines after a rotational jump or a kiteloop while you are riding. It is made from an extremely durable plastic construction where no corrosion is possible. The Roto Head comes with two grub screws making it easy and fast to change the depower line. Simply use an FCS fin key to remove the screws and change the depower line.

The Vario Cleat and Sliding Stopper enable a quick and easy adjustment of the depower stroke. Especially interesting for smaller riders who have problems reaching the bar in the regular setting. The height of the Vario Cleat and Sliding Stopper can be easily adjusted to suit personal preferences. The reduced size combined with the smaller Vario Cleat accounts for 12% more depower area.

The Track system features two ultrasonic welded tracks made of fibreglass reinforced plastic that are laminated into our boards in the production process. The Tracks are then CNC milled out of the finished board. The Track Nuts provide the connection to 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 our footpads. One particular advantage is that the flexible tracks do not interfere with the fine-tuned flex of our boards.

The Track Nuts are used to secure all binding systems. The nuts can be moved laterally in the tracks. This permits adjusting the distance between the pads. The nuts are supplied with all series boards with the The Track system.

Whether you are a seasoned pro or riding boots for the first time, this is the perfect boot for you. A medium soft density liner offers both, flexibility and support with no loss of hold thanks to its heel retention strap. The strap pulls the rider’s foot into the heel pocket as the boot is laced for reduced lift. The seamless liner construction offers easy entry and exit whereas the premoulded TPU heel panel and tongue allow for ultimate fit and comfort that produces no pressure points. The Pop Boot is a boot that helps you to step up your riding to the next level!

When you are racing at the front of the fleet you need a board that offers the ultimate in control. That is the focus of the design process; control at high speeds, control when jibing and control on all points of sail. By adding a convex shape to the front section of the nose, harsh blows from chop are now softened and stability at high speed has been improved. In addition the centre rocker line remains the same while the rail rocker has been increased, this again improves stability and enhances the performance when jibing. The wide point has been moved a little further forward to increase control and early planing. The cut outs at the back relieve pressure from the riders legs and free up the board, with less stiction to the water giving it unrivalled top end speed. All of this adds up to a board that is easier to ride and leaves the rider less fatigued. The North Kiteboarding Raceboard will be at the front of the fleet; will you be there with it?
