Time & tide wait for no-one
What are you willing to reach for? The 2021 North Reach has no boundaries. Lively and playful, this 3-strut allrounder has unparalleled versatility and wind range. Big jumps. Upwind performance. Effortless relaunch. Its even lighter construction excels in lightwind, foil and surf, without compromising the kite’s durability. Its snappy, responsive steering and power delivery give rise to great boosts, loops and freestyle moves. Your go-to kite in all conditions.
The Reach is nimble and easy to ride, with high-performance attributes that guarantee you’ll never grow out of it. Its fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while its 3-strut construction delivers quick, responsive steering in even the lightest wind. In the three larger sizes, the North Reach is a powerful lightwind kite designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in.
For 2021 we’ve introduced new highest quality low-profile, low-elongation bridle lines for an even more direct response. We’ve adopted lighter weight bladders across all sizes in the range, refined the shape and retuned the short responsive bridle for quick, exponential depower, so you can fly faster, and more efficiently, in an even wider range of conditions. This is the one kite you’ll always reach for.
Boosts & loops with a smooth and reliable catch
The North Reach has superb loft and hangtime with a compact steering radius and smooth, consistent catch, thanks to its medium aspect ratio design with wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle.
Incredibly powerful & efficient
The Reach has a slightly higher aspect ratio design for superb loft and hangtime, while its wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle help to maintain a compact steering radius, ideal for kite-looping. During kiteloops the Reach has a smooth, consistent catch and doesn’t hesitate to come back around.
Massive windrange & upwind drive
A powerful draft-forward profile, in combination with optimised profile transition panels, give the North Reach a very smooth and efficient profile entry and upwind drive.
