FREERIDE / BIG AIR
Big jumps. Big hang time. Big wind range. Designed from the ground up, this kite will rocket you upwind fast, with anti-gravity boosting capabilities. Optimised for all conditions, the North Orbit is a predictable kite that can be flown in the unpredictable. Light bar pressure allows effortless and precise steering with a massive sweet spot. A stiff frame provides a stable platform to help with overpowered airs and megaloops in gusty conditions. Tested by nature and proven by our athletes. Jesse Richman trusted the Orbit to win the crown, Nick Jacobsen to take out the highest score and Marc Jacobs for the highest jump at the 2020 Red Bull King of the Air.

Phenomenal loft and hangtime
Wide flat 2-stage arc supported by reinforced exo-skeleton frame.
High performance 5-strut kite for incredible stability in a wide range of conditions.
Incredible upwind performance
Reduced leading edge diameter gives low drag profile for greater power and efficiency.
High aspect sweep design
Allows more area in the center of the kite for efficiency and easy roll to relaunch.
Light bar pressure for effortless steering or just park and ride.
LOW DRAG Spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines with less parasitic drag for greater aerodynamic performance. Our new manufacturing method to pre-load and measure the bridle lines before cutting improves accuracy and consistency. This combined with quality materials, results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity.
HYPERFLOW INFLATION SYSTEM
High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed.
TECHNO FORCE | D2 RIPSTOP FABRIC BY TEIJIN
Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and high endurance. Teijin Techno Force has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.
DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION
Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath and forms a lightweight durable buffer to lift the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protect the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.
STEERING IMPULSE OPTION
Bar pressure / steering impulse wing tip tuning options let you fine tune the kite to your personal preference.
KEVLAR REINFORCED STRUT SYSTEM
For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge.
NO-PULLEY BRIDLES Simplified.
Less breakage. Removing the plastic pulleys from within the load-bearing part of the kite improves safety and your connection to the kite. The result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling as the kite powers more evenly through the turn.
