The 2013 North Vegas Kite is our definitive freestyle kite.
Our top freestyle riders use it as a devastating weapon of choice; world class athletes like Tom, Thomas, Mario, Cesar, Reno and Stefan have the Vegas as their go-to kite for all conditions. The Vegas has a long heritage with North Kiteboarding and we have been constantly developing it to create the ultimate freestyle kite. Whilst the Vegas is a freestyle machine, we wanted it to be a little more than that. By tuning the kite you can create a few different set ups and allow it to suit different riding styles. On the frontlines are two settings; freestyle gives the rider more depower, more lift, precision kiteloops and very reactive steering. The wakestyle setting gives the rider more pop when unhooked, a longer "power delay" to allow easier handle passes and slightly less reactive steering so you can concentrate on the rails and kickers. The rear lines can be tuned to increase or decrease the turning speed of the kite to suit almost any rider.
Compared to last years model, we have tuned quite a lot on the 2013 Vegas, the quarter strut was moved further out towards the wingtip to improve the low-end range of the kite. This also helped us to create a more rigid tip to the kite, the concentration of struts in the tip area helps make the kite very responsive and direct in terms of bar feeling. We also made the wingtips wider to improve steering and responsiveness. Hook yourself into the 2013 Vegas and prepare to be blown away by the performance of this freestyle and wakestyle machine!
