The North Neo
The North Neo is a simple three-strut design, offering blistering responsiveness, ease of use and a smooth power development throughout the turning arc of the kite. Because North only use three struts the Neo is incredibly lightweight, this means it drifts as you ride down wave, allowing you to concentrate on getting barrelled and getting the ride of your life. The Neo sits a little further back in the window, which allows it to drift, rather than fly backwards.
This also means it performs well when depowered, steering control is maintained and the kites lively behaviour isn’t lost when it reaches the upper limits of it’s wind range. The Neo also performs impeccably unhooked, meaning it will suit whatever your style of waveriding. Should the waves not show up for your trip it can also be used for freestyle as well, the responsive steering, smooth power development and easy water relaunch make it perfect for learning new moves!
The Control Bar and Lines
The 2013 North Neo can be flown on 4 or 5 lines depending on what you prefer. If you like 4 lines then select the NORTH QUAD CONTROL TRUST BAR. If you prefer the 5 line option then select the NORTH 5TH ELEMENT TRUST BAR.
The North Trust Bar is legendary in the kitesurfing industry and amongst the riders; North have developed it, tweaked it and refined it for many years.
