King of the Big Air Kites
Committing to overpowered airs and megaloops in gusty conditions demands an unwavering trust in your kite. Our iconic premier 5-strut kite, the North Orbit, delivers incredible top-end control and allows you to hold down more power than any other kite per square metre. Big jumps. Big hang time and big wind range.
This kite was designed to rocket you upwind fast, with effortless steering, extreme boosting and hangtime guaranteed to take your breath away. Tested by nature, proven on the podium. The North Orbit has your back when the rules of gravity don’t apply.
For 2021 we’ve modified the bridle for a more playful feel, and further improved the stability, while maintaining the kite’s high-end performance and kiteloop recovery. We’ve also strategically replaced the heavy dacron with lighter weight reinforcement material, so the North Orbit feels even lighter and more responsive.
Phenomenal loft & hangtime
The North Orbit has a wide flattened 2-stage arc supported by a reinforced exo-skeleton frame, ensuring glide that is guaranteed to take your breath away. The Orbit makes the most use of its projected area, so it has the best hangtime and power delivery for its size.
Predictable in the unpredictable
A high-performance Big Air kite that is stable and consistent in a wide range of conditions, especially in the high end. The Orbit’s ability to fly forward and catch you in kiteloops allows you to ride the kite overpowered without it getting away from you. But at the same time, it’s like a race horse – it wants to go.
Anti gravity boosts & megaloops
Send it to extreme heights. With its dependable catch and kiteloop recovery, the Orbit always has your back. Tested by nature and proven on the podium. Jesse Richman’s 2020 Red Bull King of the Air winning kite was the North Orbit.
