2020 North Orbit Kite 9m Used trade-in. This kite is in great condition with no repairs or damage.
We had seen a few prototypes of this kite being used by the likes of Jesse Richman and Nick Jacobsen at the King Of The Air in South Africa. The Orbit is as the name suggests, is a freeride and big air kite for boosting. It’s a 5-strut design with a high aspect swept wingtip design and a flattish profile.
There is a short pulley-less, low drag bridle that supports the leading edge, which has a 2 stage arc. It’s a well-built kite with Teijin D2 material for the canopy and Dacron in the high-stress areas like the wingtips and leading-edge. You’ll find Duralite Seam protection on all the likely wear areas on the leading edge of the kite and also Kevlar-reinforced tips.
North Kiteboarding are also using Kevlar to reinforce the strut connection points, and the kite is built around an Exo-Skeleton structure. A high-speed inflation system that doesn’t need any adapters gets you on the water fast, and the struts are inflated via high volume one-pump tubes to make things even quicker. These are also a massive bonus when deflating the kite too.
