As the performance standard of female new-school riders continues to evolve at a rapid rate, so does the demand for female specific boards to suit their unique needs.

Last but for sure not least, rounded center rails allow a smoother ride and saver landings.
North Kiteboarding Track System:
Kiteboarding is evolving at an amazing pace. As a result of this development, the demands on the material are increasing as well.
Due to new tricks and an increased variety of people who engage in the sport, it has become more and more important that the entire equipment can be individually adjusted.
For this reason North have set out to develop a multifunctional mounting system for their boards. What North envisaged was a solution that would allow a wide range of adjustments as well as quick and easy mounting of the footpads without having a negative influence on the board's flex and weight.
The result of this effort is a system that meets all our requirements. North proudly present the new THE TRACK SYSTEM!
The Track System features two ultrasonic welded tracks made of fibreglass reinforced plastic that are laminated into their boards in the production process. The tracks are then CNC milled out of the finished board.
The Track Nuts provide the connection with the footpad. The Track Nuts are made of non-corrosive brass and can be freely moved along the track to both sides. This system offers a whole range of possibilities to mount your footpads. One particular advantage is that the flexible tracks do not interfere with the finely-tuned flex of North boards.
