North X-Ride 2012 Kitesurf Board
|X Ride 2012 Overview|
The North X-Ride 2012 is a true all-terrain machine that blazes through the roughest chop with ease and comfort. The round template and curvy scoop line are responsible for the X-Ride's unique blend of comfort and smoothness while also promoting its superior carving abilities.
The X-Ride is a blast to shred with in the waves and a perfect transition board to get you out there exploring the surf.
The slightly larger swept back fins are not only great to drive you through high speed carves, but also for loading up hard and boosting massive airs at will.
Unique design features such as a full concave bottom, rounded rails, soft flex and special carving fins make the North X-Ride a dream board in rough or choppy conditions.
The North 2012 X-Ride is an all terrain twin tip perfect for doing huge jumps, freestyle and power carves in the surf. The North X-Ride's aesthetically harmonic features and smooth ride still make it the most versatile board in the North Kiteboarding range.
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.
North Kiteboarding G-10 Fins:
Heaps of grip from the specially designed G-10 S-bend fins make takeoffs easy for boosting over the moon. Or take advantage of the curvy outline, the cylindrical concave and the progressive rocker to carve like a hot knife through butter in small waves and blast through the most evil chop with ease, all without ever getting rail-spray in your face!
The specially designed S-Bend fins gives the North 2012 X-Ride excellent upwind abilities, provide grip for high speed carves and allow you to hold your edge to the absolute limit for maximum pop and massive jumps.
North X-Ride Responsive Flex:
A truly versatile machine that feels easy and comfortable from the moment you place your feet in the straps, the X-Ride appeals to a wide audience and a variety of styles.
The new responsive centre flex concept allows for earlier planing while also dampening and absorbing the chop for an incredibly smooth feel. A refined, rounder rocker and slightly wider outline have further tightened North X-Ride's turning radius for venturing out into the surf and make it easy to find the release point for take-offs.
The control is further enhanced by a wood sandwich construction and soft flex characterisitcs.
The concave bottom in combination with the round rail gives you maximum grip and a smooth water flow off the edge, increasing control, performance and comfort.
The soft flex and good absorption allow you to ride effortlessly through chop, while the new S-bend fins give you outstanding grip and acceleration allowing for big jumps, high speed turns and performance in waves you didn't think was possible with a twin tip.
A great freestyle board, even in the toughest conditions, the North X-Ride 2012 makes riding easier and lets you focus on the tricks instead of trying to control the board.
