Rider profile

Freeriders, all in one kite

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

Boost. Loop. Foil. Surf. The Reach is a lively and playful all-round performer with unparalleled versatility and wind range for big jumps, upwind performance and effortless relaunch. 

Evolved from a calculated fusion of the Orbit, Pulse and Carve, this kite is designed to excel in every condition, from wave-riding to boosts, loops and freestyle tricks. Travel light, enjoy whatever nature has in store, and be ready for any adventure. 

Its stable, fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while the lighter 3-strut design with tight turning radius, light impulse and bar pressure helps to deliver fast, responsive steering. 

It has a fun, nimble feel and effortless park and ride, is your go-to for wave-riding in lighter wind and the perfect match for our Sonar Foils. 

In the larger 13m and 15m sizes the Reach is a powerful lightwind specific kite, specially designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in. 

All conditions. All purpose. All ways ready. The Reach Performance Freeride is the one kite you'll always reach for. 

Your desert-island kite.

Had a short session with the North Reach on a twintip and surfboard. The Reach has an easy and light kite control. Its very reactive with a small turning circle. Playful and soft.
