Product Information


From North

Committing to overpowered airs and megaloops in gusty conditions demands an unwavering trust in your kite. Our iconic premier 5-strut kite delivers incredible top-end control and allows you to hold down more power than any other kite per square metre. Big jumps. Big hang time. Big wind range. The Orbit rockets you upwind fast, with effortless steering, extreme boosting and hangtime guaranteed to take your breath away. Without changing the DNA of the kite, we've engineered it to feel smoother, lighter, faster, and even more predictable in the unpredictable. At North, we understand what riders want in a performance, big air kite. For 2023 the Orbit feels even more responsive in all conditions. We've made small structural refinements to smooth out the canopy, optimizing the profile for less drag, faster forward speed and smoother turning. Slightly refined bridling means the kite feels more stable and forgiving in overpowered, gusty conditions yet retains its ability to fly forward and catch you in kite loops. We've reduced the kite's overall weight with lighter bladders in larger sizes and introduced a new 2-ply canopy material reinforcement on the trailing edge. The lighter the kite, the faster the steering, the more lift it creates, and the higher you jump. We've constructed the leading edge and struts in our lighter N-Dure Dacron to save significantly more weight without compromising strength or durability. We've also introduced two additional bar pressure options so you can choose from a lighter, more forgiving feeling in cruise mode, right through to ultra-direct steering with shorter depower travel in megaloop mode. This new fourth setting gives you the confidence to loop the kite even lower. It is ideal for heavier riders on smaller kites and boosts wingtip support on those crazy 40knot + days. Tested by nature, proven on the podium. The Orbit has your back when the rules of gravity don't apply.

Best Orbit Yet!

One of the things that has bothered me in the past with all of Norths kites was the lack of bar pressure. You can feel the difference in this version right away. Its a refreshing feeling of attachment that I wasn't quite getting with the older models. Yeah, knowing where your kite is without looking at it is great, but I'm talking about where it matters the most. Feeling the critical point of exactly when to pull on the bar in relation to how fast your kite is accelerating upward, while still being able to spot your takeoff is paramount to jumping your highest.
On top of that, it is easy to read where the kite is in relation to your movement while you are in the air, preventing a lot of kicking the board off because you are left guessing.
More power, feels safer and an even better construction sums this new version up nicely. I was very impressed on my first ride.
