North release their 2024 Freeride collection
Hot on the heels of the North rebrand, along comes their new and highly anticipated Freeride collection…
We seek adventure.
We seek connection.
We seek our own path.
Our 2024 Freeride Collection is engineered for consistent, dependable performance in all conditions.
The Reach Kite’s lighter construction excels in light-wind, foil and surf, giving rise to confident boosts, loops and freestyle.
Our new TwinTips are playful yet powerful, and guaranteed to take your riding to the next level.
And because we understand comfort is critical, our all new Flex and Flex Pro Bindings.
Never stop seeking.
Lively and playful, this 3-strut allrounder has unparalleled versatility and wind range. Easy jumps. Upwind performance. Effortless relaunch. For 2024 the Reach is lighter overall. We’ve improved the canopy tension for faster flying, and revised the arc design for a crisper, snappier response, more direct steering and more dynamic recovery. Still nimble and easy to ride, but now with a cleaner profile entry and smoother more aerodynamic shape that’s even more stable in kite loops, the Reach is your go-to kite in all conditions. The lighter construction excels in lightwind, foil and surf, without compromising the kite’s durability. Its fast, responsive steering and efficient power delivery give rise to confident boosts, loops and freestyle, while the short responsive bridle provides quick, exponential depower. In the three larger sizes, the Reach is a powerful lightwind kite designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding – long after everyone else has gone in.Check out the Reach
Instantly familiar, intuitive and comfortable, the Prime helps you progress faster in your Freeride game. A sweet performer in all wind and water conditions, it tracks upwind smoothly and slices splash-free through the chop. Jump and boost in full control, with forgiving landings thanks to the softer flex. Ride in tune with nature, in tune with yourself. For 2024 all North TwinTips feature the new FlipTech Mounting System, with centreline inserts for added rail longevity.Check out the Prime
Cushioning. Support. Shock absorption.
The 2024 Flex Pro are engineered to help absorb and disperse impact after gravity-defying boosts, with triple-density dynamic support technology to protect your heels and guarantee softer landings. We’ve added structure and stability with a contoured anatomical footbed and ramped chassis for improved fit and increased lateral support. Outer angled heel inserts ensure your foot rolls properly, providing a stable landing and protecting your knees and ankles when loading up to release into the air. The GripFlex lightweight, rubberized EVA inner maintains grip underfoot when wet, while the fine grip pattern helps keep you locked in on various angles, preventing your foot from sliding out of the binding.
We’ve refined the adjustable injection-Velcro top flap to provide a strong yet flexible hold. The strap has a soft foam and KnitFlex seamless lining with split-Velcro fastenings. These provide custom comfort and allow your foot to shuffle more easily into a locked-in position. For your ultimate fit, ensure there’s enough room for your toes to stretch and flex, and make sure the strap doesn’t slip or rub. The upper should feel secure, but not too tight, and the footbed should match the shape of your foot. The Flex LX are compatible with both our 2023-2024 FlipTech centreline and 2020-2022 offline TwinTip mounting systems. Industry-standard screw spacings ensure they can also be fitted to other boards.Check out the Flex Pro bindings
