New kite to the North Kiteboarding range in 2016, their own single strut kite, the Mono!
North's Description:

We are always on the lookout for innovative ways to design and achieve outstanding products, so our team investigated the potential of a lighter kite with fewer struts. Introducing the Mono, the newest family member to the North Kiteboarding range who’s performance speaks for itself. 

The Mono is a light wind specialist. It has an outstanding low end range, with the 5 m2 and 7 m2 models working particularity well with surfboards and lighter breezes. Use the power of the kite to catch the wave, then crank the depower and shred the wave with zero pull. Its light weight allows the kite to drift and hang in the air as you ride down the line; it also makes it the perfect travel companion. The Mono has a comfortable and forgiving feeling via the bar - softer than the Neo but still progressive. The turning speed is quick, and the kite is also great for Freeriding offering easy jumping and excellent hangtime. With relaunch abilities worthy of an applause, great power delivery and optimum sheet-and-go, you’re sure to fall in “love at first flight”. 

Ideally paired with a larger twintip or wave board, in light-medium strength winds the Mono will blow you away! Test ride one today and be

North Mono Progression Q:

Progression Q defines North's progressive commitment to quality, innovation and premiu products.

North's design and engineer visionaries are blended with premium technology and the latest production techniques, ensuring that their brand remains one step ahead of the rest.

Kiteboarding is a way of life, and for North a kite is more than just a kite; it’s a statement and a reflection of your inner style. For more than 10 years, their innovative breakthrough in materials and technical design has allowed them to remain one of the leading brands of the industry. North believe there’s no substitute for anything other than high performance and premium quality products. 

Their evolutionary systems are a result of our ingenious in-house designers and research and development team, and consider their technological advancements as key contributors to the growth and safety of the sport.

There are 3 aspects to this approach that complement each other and have to work together seamlessly: 

1. Materials and Hardware
2. Employees and productions techniques
3. Construction Details and Design

Technoforce D2 Canopy:
Teijin is the world’s leading supplier for polyester fabrics and sail materials for all kinds of marine sports. North use the remarkably durable Teijin Dacron for our leading edge, struts, wingtips and wherever high tension or an applied load is found. Technoforce D2 is used for North's canopy. Technoforce D2 was an exclusive coating development for North Kiteboarding, which has proven its superiority in durability and dynamics since we started using it.

Glued Zig-Zag Stitches:

Every single seam is stitched with a zigzag sewing technique. They are first glued then stitched. The result is a clean, good-looking and highly durable stitch, which supports the overall stability of the kite.

Air Port Valve:
For 2016 all kites are equipped with the completely redesigned Airport Valve II.

The valve works with any conventional pump or compressor as it can be connected directly to the bayonet insert of the hose. The valve is suitable for both, inflation and deflation. The deflation option is integrated, which means no external deflation pin is required. Deflation is simply activated by turning the blue wheel on the inside of the valve completely to the right.

Computerised Cutting:
Computerized cutting ensures millimetre precise working pieces, a minimum of waste and a maximum of efficiency of the cutting process itself. This way the high expectations of our two kite designers can be met to their full satisfaction.

Abrasion Reinforcement:
All areas exposed to scuffing strengthened with STPU reinforcements, renowned for its durability against abrasion.

Fusion Strut:

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line,which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

Computer Sewing:
All critical seams are done with computer supported sewing machines. This avoids human mistakes and inconsistencies, increases the productivity and reduces waste from cut off materials; it is the only way to create a perfect and consistent result every time.

TQM Method :
A detailed quality control system has been developed, controlling every step starting with the delivery of raw materials to the factory and ending with the final delivery of kites to our customers. In between, every single stage is optimized to the smallest detail. The quality check card is the key to keeping precise control over the process for every individual kite at every stage.

Kook-Proof Connectors:
The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

Self Rescue Handles:
The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

Anti Snag: The Anti Snag webbing prevents the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased. North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Zipperless Struts :
A strut without zippers means less weight, and results in smoother flying characteristics and increased durability. These advantages outweigh the slightly more tedious process required when changing a strut bladder.

Lines by Teufelberger:
Teufelberger is a leading supplier for ropes, ranging from climbing, sailing and paragliding to specialized ropes for kitesurfing. North Kiteboarding uses Teufelberger products for lines and bridles.

Polyurethane Bladders:
All bladders are produced of high quality Polyurethane. This material is known for its high elasticity in different temperatures and resistance to pressure. The modern welding technique ensures durable seams and binds the material together perfectly.

Load Distribution Panels:
As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam:
The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

Trailing Edge Reinforcements:
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the D2 Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
North Dice 2016 Water Relaunchable LEI
Lazy Pump:
The North Kiteboarding Lazy Pump system enables the inflation of the kite from just one valve. Clips close off struts from leading edge to prevent unwanted airflow in case of damage or simply to only deflate the leading edge
