Presenting the 2017 Quad Control bar. Identical in design to the 5th Element bar, it's best suited to 4 line kite models where the front line safety setup is steadfast. When released – via the Iron Heart IV - the Quad Control ensures that the kite rests powerless on the water at the edge of the wind window, allowing you time to gather yourself safely before relaunching. With a flowing feel, the Quad Control is responsive, straightforward and reliable.

LINE LENGTH ADVISOR
Four years ago North introduced different line lengths ranging from 19 to 30 metres as the length of the flying lines can make a huge difference to the way the kite flies.  in order to further increase the effect, the 19 and 22m lines come on the medium bar (42-49cm) and the 24 and 27m lines come on the large bar (46-53cm)



 


Bar Features:
WINDING POSTS
WINDING POSTS
The Winding Posts are made of a fully moulded fibreglass reinforced Polyamide construction, which offers an incredibly lightweight solution with increased stiffness. In addition to this, there is a moulded EVA cushioning to ensure maximum comfort for the rider. The Winding Posts feature an integrated backline adjustment, which allows the rider to trim the rear lines when needed.

ATTENTION:
Never ride without the cover. It prevents the knot of the leader line from slipping out of its housing.



R
INTEGRATED EVA FLOAT - FLOATER FLIP FLOP FUNCTION
The moulded EVA floater is fully integrated into the winding posts to offer a seamless connection, which gives better protection to the lines and the rider. The integration of the EVA floater also avoids line tangling and gives better overall stiffness between the bar and lines.
The Flip Flop function allows you to switch between a 53cm and 46cm bar width and 49cm and 42cm bar width with just one click.



PLASTIC FITTED CENTRE HOLE
The exchangeable insert for the centre hole is made of plastic, to reduce wear on the depower line. 


NEW STICKY & ERGONOMIC BAR GRIP
NEW STICKY & ERGONOMIC BAR GRIP
North continue with the smaller diameter bar in order to increase the thickness of the EVA bar grip. The result is a bar that has the same overall diameter but offers a lot more comfort to the rider.


IRON HEART
The Iron Heart from North Kiteboarding has long been the benchmark for all safety systems and we are continuously aiming to further improve this essential piece of safety equipment. It is renowned for a fast, safe and easy release, coupled with the ability to quickly reassemble the unit and continue flying. 


MOULDED CHICKEN LOOP & CHICKEN DICK 

STANDARD / SUICIDE MODE
With every 2016 North Kiteboarding Bar, there is a choice between the standard safety mode and an easy to mount ‘SUICIDE’ MODE. Only very experienced riders with special requirements should use the suicide mode.


ATTENTION:
Only the standard safety mode offers 100% safety. We recommend to always use the standard safety mode. 



THE REVERSE RELEASE PIN
The Iron Heart IV uses a reverse release pin release which gives it incredibly low release forces.















ROTO HEAD
The Roto Head allows you to untangle the lines after a rotational jump or a kiteloop while you are riding.
 


Vario Cleat & sliding stopper
North have introduced a 5th line channel for the 5th line to run through, to reduce the risk of the 5th line getting tangled. You can easily adjust the height of the Vario Cleat, plus we have reduced it’s size to increase the depower area by 12%.




NEW SAFETY LEASH
The Safety Leash has been completely redesigned to offer more floatation, guaranteed protection and ease of handling. 





5TH ELEMENT
5th Element Bar
The North 5th line system has provided the greatest combination of safety and performance for many years now. Year after year the 5th line concept proves its reliability and the 100% depower ability, no matter what the conditions. 




Quad Control

The 4-line system  offers a single frontline safety system. When releasing the safety system all the power is redirected to one single frontline, whereby the kite will flag out more easily and rest powerless on the water.
