Re: Neo, Dice or Evo for 12m

The first few years Ken was designing the Neo they were EXTREMELY powerful. Since then he's worked on increasing the top end and shaving just a bit of grunt off the low end each year. Back then the 12m was a bit of a dog for turning speed, but I believe it's improved every year since, especially for...

Re: 2018 North Traction Pad Team (front) - are they better/stickier than normal pads?

I work for North so take with as much salt as you want... The Team Pads are awesome, however they are not 'pads' in the traditional sense. They are VERY thin, they give almost no padding, just grip. Feels more like very sticky wax. Board feel is better than with any other pad, so if you like the dir...

Re: North Evo

The 2010 Evo was a delta-C shaped kite. It had some limitations... It sits very deep in the window and pulls hard and downwind. It works great in lightwind to get you out and is a fairly versatile kite in terms of waves and unhooked freestyle, plus has good relaunch, but going upwind is definitely n...

Re: North Dice - how to tell the year?

Serial number should be on the card on the top of the bag. Let me know what it is and I can tell you the year. If the card is gone the serial is printed on the LE of the kite in the center.

Re: North Rebel sizing for heavy rider

I try to never recommend sizes... It depends on so many factors, weight, experience, style, current, board, etc. I've done demos where people are out on the same kite at the same time and come back with one saying they needed a smaller kite and the other saying they needed a larger. So I won't addre...

Re: Using 2017 North Evo 11m and 8m with one bar?

I agree with what Da Yoda says (mostly). But we do offer 2m extensions, so if you buy the S/M bar and want 24m lines, just get the 2m extensions. Tell your retailer you want item 44800-8136. They are listed as being for the Click bar, but I'm 95% sure they work just fine on 2017 and 2018 Trust bars ...
