Experts Feedback on the ACE

„The ACE can be flown decidedly close to the edge of the wind window. This corresponds due to its low transverse drag forces very well with a low drag foil board. Resulting in a perfect balance of power between the Foilboard and the ACE kite.“

„The ACE kite has an enorm depower range. This power canbe released linearly during foiling which leads to a feelgood factor no matter which course you are on. Cross travel speed differs enourmously, whether you are on an up-, down- or side course. A huge variation of the kites‘ angle of attack is the prerequisite.“

„The ACE generates huge lift during sheeting in or powering. Due to this enormous lift it's easier to learn
and to improve sailed through tacks and jibes. In addition the ACE continues to carry the weight of the rider while changing the foot position, which is a great benefit when learning how to foil.“



PRODUCT FACT SHEET 2017

TRUST BAR FOIL

24M (18M+6M EXTENSIONS)

CATEGORY:

Foil / Freeride

PRODUCT PROFILE:

Together with the ACE light wind foil kite we introduce the TRUST BAR FOIL.The bar is based on the North Kiteboarding Quad Control Trust Bar but has a shorter Chicken Loop.

The extension kit allows for two line length options, covering the requirements for most light wind and foil conditions. The bar is only compatible with the North Kiteboarding ACE Kite.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES:

Suitable for all light wind and foil conditions thanks to 2 line length options 18m (+6m MFOHUI extension) and 24m
TECH FEATURES:

• Short chicken loop, allowing for a longer depower stroke

• longer depower line for maximum power


SET UP RECOMMENDATION:

The ACE Lite should be flown with the TRUST BAR FOIL. The extra short chicken loop together with 70cm depower stroke+ 30cm trimming offer an extra long bar stroke. This makes it possible to recall the entire ran-ge of angle of attack and therewith the full potential of the high performance ACE kite.

For foiling we recommend the 18m line set (without the 6m extension). The ACE on short lines can be controlled more directly and precisely. This direct and precise steering and positioning of the kite is the road to success with foil-tacks and -jibes.
