WMFG Big Pump - does it work with 2016- North kites and Core kites?

Postby omg » Thu Dec 28, 2017 8:16 pm

Hi,

do you know if the WMFG Pump works with 1) North Kites and 2) Core kites inflation system, please? From 2016 onwards, North has a nozzle adapter which has a silicone o-ring to seal the airflow but will this be included in the WMFG pump or if the North adapter fits tightly to the hose of the WMFG pump? And then what about the Core kites, they have different kind of nozzle as well (also with a silicone o-ring but different to North)?

Thanks!

I've 2 of them and current one is a lot better with the flexible hose.
I don't have North or core but their site says 'all kites' and the nozzles are very comprehensive;
I'd be interested to also hear if anyone can confirm their fitment.

I have the version 2.0 of the pump and it works wonder with my 2017 7m Dice, 2015 10m Dice and a 2009 Evo.

So yeah, with the north valve works without issues.

Can't comment on Core.

Cheers

The silicone o-ring to seal the airflow is easy to loose, but the pump works fine without it on NKB kites.

Hey Windybrit.
Noticing that you have XR kites.
I have two questions.
I have a 12M XR3 coming from a Core GT. Do you think that the XR5 is dramatically better in the freeride and boosting department than the XR3?
My next kite scheduled for replacement is my 7M GTS which I normally use for strong winds and small waves (all we have here in Denmark). I was considering an XR3 or a Free. Do you have any advice for me in that department? I am an advanced intermediate rider and probably always will be. :-)

I love boosting on the XR5. It has zero drift ability in a wave however.
There are waves in DK of course, maybe not on Sealand. 8)
