Over the past few years North has been making minor refinements to perfect their staple kites. In 2016 we saw changes in the aspect ratio throughout the different sizes to optimize performance. In 2017, there are some construction changes that will improve the wind range, the turning, and the durability. As well, North has included a new 15 meter size. This will be a fantastic option for riders over 200 pounds looking to make the most out of their sessions.
This year North has changed the layout of the panels between the struts. Now instead of having 4 sections we have 8. This makes for a rounder canopy. Resulting in a larger wind range in each size. this means you will spend less time deciding what size to put up and more time riding. This also affects the turning. This year's rendition will have and improved rounded turning radius much like the Neo.
In 2016, we saw Dacron added to the trailing edge and a new pattern to increase durability. The 2017 iteration now has reinforced Dacron around the entire canopy. This is actually a change in the entire north line up. Due to some strut modification you can expect less flutter in your kite. Further adding to that stable feeling we’ve come to expect from the Rebel. Part of this stability is due to the non optional loaded 5th line.
In regards to who this kite is for, anyone looking for a high performance freeride kite that jumps with next to no effort. People looking for a kite that will ride up wind better than anything in the North lineup. It is exceptionally fun for hooked in freestyle tricks, thanks to consistent feed back from the kite, as well as pull and go boosting. Beginners will benefit, as well as advanced riders looking for a kite that does most of the work for you. The Rebel is North's most efficient kite. It also takes the award for having the best boosting capabilities in the line up. This includes height and distance.
The Liquid Force Edge kiteboard is the easiest way to get started riding. Whether getting up for your first time or performing your first jump, the Edge kiteboard is sure to help you. With a bottom designed for easily cutting through the chop and almost effortless upwind cruising, the Liquid Force Edge allows you to progress every session.
