The North 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.

Big Hangtime:

Open arc design for boosts and loops with a reliable catch.

Lightwind Optimised:

Stable and balanced fuller profile delivers power and efficiency in every condition.

Quick Responsive Turning:

Designed with light bar pressure and steering impulse for a fast response with tight turning radius.

Confident Relaunch:

Moderate LE Diameter and swept design provides additional buoyancy and helps the kite to release quickly from the water, even in the lightest conditions.

Tactile Handling:

Precisely balanced for wave-riding and foiling.

Upwind Drive:

Efficient, draft-forward profile.

Freestyle Progression:

A forgiving kite with power when you need it for freestyle manoeuvres.

Travel Light:

Ready for any adventure. The lightest kite in our range, with 3-strut construction to keep the weight down for optimal steering and performance, without compromising strength or durability.

Aerodynamic Efficieny:

Optimised Profile Transition Panels for an even more efficient airflow ensuring a precise aerodynamic profile shape.

Power On Demand:

Predictable, consistent power delivery with light responsive steering.

Short No Pulley Bridle:

Gives a more direct feeling in both steering and depower.

Duralite Seam Protection:

Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge.

Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protect the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.

 
Steering Impulse Option:

Bar pressure / steering impulse wing tip tuning options let you fine tune the kite to your personal preference.

 
Low Drag Bridle:

Spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines with less parasitic drag for greater aerodynamic performance.

A new manufacturing method to pre-load and measure the bridle lines before cutting improves accuracy and consistency.

This combined with quality materials, results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity.

 
Hyperflow Inflation System:

High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation.

Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps.

No adapter needed.

 
No-Pulley Bridles:

Simplified. Less breakage. Removing the plastic pulleys from within the load-bearing part of the kite improves safety and your connection to the kite.

The result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling as the kite powers more evenly through the turn.
