Kite

The North Vegas is the C-Shape wake/freestyle kite by North Kiteboarding.

Designer Goals

It was designed as a freestyle kite with explosive pop, direct steering and super powerfull boost in kiteloops. Besides all this power the Vegas is know for it's depower range. The 2011 vegas has two set-ups. 1 for the wake-style riders and the second for freeriders. A big difference is that the wakestyle option allows for less depower than the freeride setup.

The materials used were also improved compared to the previous models. The new material (technoforce D2) is more durable and retains stifness. The material can be recognised by the double ripstop. The more rigid material resulted in changes to the center and the trailing edge of the kite, this way the 2010 characteristics could be retained.

Bar

5 line bar north 2011Still one step ahead, the fifth edition of our tried and tested 5th Element Bar is possibly the most effective and trustworthy safety system on the market. 2010 nearly any Kiteboarding magazine declared it the test winner. The Iron Heart VI requires minimal release forces and is not affected by harsh sand and saltwater conditions. The double de-power line in combination with the Sliding Stopper and Stopper Ball ensures that the bar is always where you want it to be in all situations. Our small, lightweight Vario Cleat allows you to quickly and easily adjust it to your desired de-power stroke while the system automatically trims your lines to the perfect length. If the dangling trim line has ever interfered with your flow in the past, you can now forget about it focus on your riding: Simply Velcro the dangling portion to the stopper ball so it’s never in your way. The Micro Loop is no longer an integrated feature, but for those who like the comfort of riding with fixed power, the system can quickly and easily be fitted.
Riders of all skill levels, from newcomers to pros, will benefit from the simplicity and functionality of the new 5th Element Bar Trust Bar and Iron Heart IV.

I have had a ride on a 2011 10m north Vegas and loved it but was thinking of buying the 12m. However I have been told that the 12m is a hadfull in over 20knots. I kite between mostly 13-28 knots which size whould be better for a one kite purchase? I am 85 kg riding a 137cm crazy fly pro
