North Kiteboarding launch the 2022 range

North Kiteboarding - Orbit 2022

Introducing the new essential gear for your big air needs!


North product news – live from 15th September 2021
Words: North

What does it take to let go of fear? To commit to the unknown? At North we believe the magnetic pull – for freedom, for letting go of yourself and merging with the power of the elements, for performance, for exhilaration – overcomes fear. This pull calls to us again and again. And we’ve responded in 2022 with bold new designs, engineered to harness the power of the elements.

North Kiteboarding – Orbit, Big Air / Freeride

For 2022 we’ve made small refinements to the bridle and further reduced the weight of the Orbit with N-FORCE 75 reinforcement and lighter weight bladders, so the kite feels even lighter and more responsive in all conditions. 

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

North Kiteboarding – Navigator, Control System

Now ISO Certified, the 2022 Navigator now complies with ISO 21853 for faster, safer release and intuitive single-action reload in all conditions. Five new Toolless Interloops complete the modular system, allowing riders to switch effortlessly between disciplines simply by swapping out the loop – no tools required.

Sizes: 38-43, 45-50, 50-55cm

North Kiteboarding – Trace, Lightwind / Freeride

With phenomenal pop and surprising manoeuvrability for its size, the all-new Trace has a large surface area for early planing and upwind performance in the lightest winds. It’s Centre-V Spine and longitudinal quad channels provide balanced torsional stiffness, traction and control, while the medium-low rocker is ideal for flatwater.

Brand Director Mike Raper is excited by the new range: “At North, we are all inspired by the power of the elements, and how when you work with each element, rather than resist it, it takes your performance and experience to a whole other level,” he says.

“Our 2022 Range draws inspiration from the unbreakable bond between the elements and our tribe, and while we continue to be led by nature, this year we’ve really pushed the envelope with technology and performance. I’m proud of the relentless evolution and incremental improvements we’re seeing across the range. And I’m also excited to see how our team rider feedback loop has become such an integral part of the design process.”
