The new Race LTD "69 Edition" is out!

Let´s listen to the product designer Sky Solbach himself and get some first hand information: "I'm really proud of the design I was able to create together with the help of Ken Winner, Olivier Dansin and the whole North Race Team. Designing and developing equipment to win races requires consistent and measured testing in a wide range of wind and water conditions by dedicated testers.

North Race Team scores in Egypt!

The African Continental Championships in Egypt was the perfect way for the North Kiteboarding Race Team to start the season. The final medal race day was a huge one for the North Kiteboarding Race Team and the pretrack training, tactics, strategy & shared knowledge really paid off... (photo credit: Icarus Sailing Media)

Gee I thought they would announce "We hired a new graphic designer! Our gear will be the best looking gear around! Our valves will stay attached to the kites! Our bar and lines will not jam or break any more!"

Just a friendly nudge, all my gear is North and I love the kites and my Whip!

But, above improvements would help...

I agree with you about the graphics for 2013. I don't understand how they made it to production, but I guess that's a matter of taste... I really liked the 2012s

I thought they had solved the valve issues several years ago? My 2011 North kites are going strong with no valve issues. My 2011 bars have been great as well.

On the North webpage it seems to be saying you need the fifth line because the safety system of the North 4 line bar won't depower the kite fully when you pull the QR. Does this mean you don't need the 5th line loaded to support the leading edge? Can you ride it on a 4 line bar if that bar leashes to a single front line?

Can't wait to hear Toby's review of the new Dyno!
