The Fabio is in its second generation. The '07 Fabio snowkite is easier and more intuitive to fly than its predecessor. The kite's response to the bar has been changed substantially, pop and lift have dramatically improved through the new profile without compromising stability, and the depower abilities are enormous. Whether you are hooked or unhooked the kite turns fast with great precision and balanced, constant pull. Steep hills become child's play. Sizes: 7, 9.5 and 12m. The 2007 Crossride is North's new all-round board with two stance positions; a traditional twin-tip stance for freestyle performance, and a stance set back from centre for carving, wave riding and a more directional feel. A slight concave for positive edging and the rounded rails allows you to easily re-set the rail when landing jumps, and gives you ultimate control when carving. Sizes: 129 x 38 and 135 x 40cm. And girl power is back with the Paris. A relatively narrow centre provides enhanced control and a more immediate edge grip. The Paris' particularly soft flex matches the lower weight of female riders and facilitates smooth landings and controlled riding. A round tip shape and 4cm TFC fins create a loose feeling for easy switching and speed checks. Sizes: 123 x 35.5 and 131 x 36cm.
