I didn't know 'Barf' was a color until I saw those pics... geez
Love the kites and will keep buying them but I'll need to start using spraypaint on them...

p.s. My 2009 Rebel RED and BLACK and that's-it looks great... could someone at North look into those graphics again for 2014? Would same me the cost of a few cans of paint. Thanks!

Seen the guys from North doing tests at OBX. The new Vegas still looks pretty much the same. But with graphics that might have been stolen from Gaastra 2001 sailingsails.

I cant understand how a brand that makes such a briljant looking bar makes that ugly kites.

Rumor has the Fuse will be ditched and be replaced by the three strut proto on the picture. It for sure is no Neo since the struts are placed completrly different...

Why ditching the Fuse ? Completely different if compared to the Neo (IMO).

But fuse is essentially a rebel ;)

neo stays, rebel stays so an introduction of rpm-like 3 strut kite makes sense.

Anyways vegas looks almost identical to 2013 one, good news.

I'm one of those one who switched from Rebels to Fuses because of the 4 lines simplicity. 100% happy so far.
Hope you're wrong about Fuses line going in phase out. :(

I hope these are rumors only (ditching the Fuse)!
I'm in the same boat as you and many others these days (I hate 5 lines). I hope North continues with the Fuse- a fantastic kite! If for whatever reason they ditch it, I will have to look for another kite brand again if there is nothing similar to the Fuse from North (but definitely no 5 liner).

Cheers

Well, you prolly read that rumor at the very same site as I did - it might be a total BS or might be true. In few more months it all will be known. But still I think the proto from first pic is neo, not a new kite design. But I have no facts to back up my statement.

I'm a very happy Fuse rider myself as well. Great kites, low end, high end, stability, ease of use, predictable, great jumper with good hangtime and continuous power on tap through turns, makes it a doable wave kite as well
