North EVO 2008 08 Kiteboarding SLE LEI Kiteboard KiteThe North EVO 2008! Never before has performance been so easy!

Impressive light wind ability, enormous range, forgiving flying characteristics and easy bar feeling are just some of the unique features of the new North EVO 2008.

The North Evo's precise steering response always delivers predictable and controlled jumps even if your take-off is not perfect.

The innovative Bridge Profile geometry optimizes airflow and gets you up and planing in extremely light air even when the Evo is fully over-sheeted. This profile balances the load distribution around the leading edge which prevents the Evo from ever back-stalling and is the key to it's acceleration in light wind.

With its simple bridle configuration the Evo can be used with a four-line bar or with the 5th Element. In 4 Line mode the Evo is ideal for everyone who favors easy water relaunch and simple handling, while the 5th Element mode additionally stabilizes the kite for optimized performance, direct handling and the best safety.

Aramid Reinforcements:
New for 2008 are the Aramid Reinforcement, added in highly reinforced exposed areas such as the Micro Batten pockets and the leading edge scuff pads. These reinforcements reduce wear from everyday use, and increase the durability and life of your kite.

5th Element Line with 4-Line Safety:
The North Evo 2008 can be flown with four or with five lines, the fifth line provides 100% depower and maximum safety even in high wind conditions.

Kook Proof Connectors:
These connectors prevent the number one cause of kite accidents by ensuring that the front lines cannot be attached to the back of the kite and back lines cannot be attached to the front.

Deflator Pin:
The low-drag ribs require a high inflation pressure, thus all valves at the chambers of the North EVO 08. Thanks to the worked-in drainage functionality, the air can be let out within a few seconds.

Self Rescue Handles:
These loops attached to the inside of the wingtips make it easier to hold the kite for body drag rescue.

Low-Drag High Pressure Ribs:
It's not true that all types and sizes of kite need to have as little aerodynamic drag as possible. However North like to control drag by putting it where they want it and elminating it where they don't want it.

To the end of elminating undesired drag North have created the lowest drag ribs available. From the low profile and correct orientation of the seams to the small overall diameter and tiny, low turbulence rib ends, the North EVO 08 ribs are designed to reduce undesirable skin friction and wake drag to a minimum .

Segmented Leading Edge:
For all heavily stressed areas, North canopies are manufactured from top quality 170g or 175g Dacron. This material is equipped with the best possible breaking strain characteristics with the usual kite materials, and moreover, it will never delaminate.

Relaunch Bungies:
In order to make the relaunch easier and to avoid any possible line tangling, North have added Relaunch Bungies at the kite tips. The bungies keep the lies flying slick against the inside of the leading edge, preventing any line going over the top of the kite during the relaunch.

Leading Edge Bridles:
The leading edge bridles creates the necessary stability for the North EVO's consistent and direct handling.
