This 2018 North NEO 7M Used is in good condition with no repairs or damage. There are a couple mud stains on the canopy that do not seem to come out. And the zippers on the bag are frozen.
The North Neo is a no-compromise wave kite, used by riders on the GKA Strapless Tour like Airton Cozzolino and Matchu Lopes to devastating effect. It’s a three-strut design with a short bridle, designed to offer incredible turning speed and impressive drifting capabilities.
This year it gets an upgrade in the shape of the special “Flex Segments” in the leading edge. These allow the kite to twist even more during the turn initiation. The Delta design features Adaptive Tips and also tuning options on the bridle to let you dial in how the kite rides and tune it to the conditions of the day.
In terms of construction, the build quality is second to none as always from North. Trinity TX is used in the canopy; this material features a triple weave fabric that runs laterally from wing tip to wing tip, while a double weave runs from leading edge to the trailing edge.
