Big Air / Freeride
Red Bull King of the Air Winner!
North’s iconic premier 5-strut kite, 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. 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 Orbit has your back when the rules of gravity don’t apply.
For 2021 North have modified the bridle for a more playful feel, and further improved the stability, while maintaining the kite’s high-end performance and kite-loop recovery. They’ve also strategically replaced the heavy dacron with lighter weight reinforcement material, so the kite feels even lighter and more responsive.
The 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. This kite makes the most use of its projected area, so it has the best hangtime and power delivery for its size.
Tested by nature and proven on the podium. 2020 Red Bull King of the Air Jesse Richman’s winning kite.
