From North

For high-speed performance, efficiency is key. The Mode, our new high-speed performance wing, incorporates N-Weave woven fibre technology, 3x stiffer and 40% lighter than traditional leading-edge materials, for the most efficient power delivery on the market. N-Weave reduces structural deflection and transfers wind energy into greater forward speed, explosive boost and hangtime for freestyle tricks. Development of this new material technology has allowed us to create a stiffer, lighter and more durable wing without geometric compromise (and without the high-performance price tag). The Mode has a fast, VMG-optimized design, which lets you sail closer to the wind, on higher upwind angles, and reduces your need to tack or gybe, so you reach the mark as quickly as possible. We designed the Mode primarily for high-speed performance, but the stiffer airframe also translates into unprecedented loft for higher jumps and forward momentum on landings. With incredible high-end stability, the 4.2 and 5.5m are ideal for use in stronger winds, while the 7m is optimised for greater power in lighter air. The wing has a balanced lower aspect ratio with rounded wingtips to reduce tip strike, and the new panel layout delivers wingtip stability and increased tension under load. Featuring rigid GripLock micro-trim control handles for immediate response, and new race-window positioning to help you keep a close eye on your opponents.

Need for Speed

This incredible wing from North checks all of the boxes for speed, stability and user friendliness, but you will need a bit of wind and the sweet spot is a bit smaller than on the Nova. I feel like for an intermediate/expert rider looking to either race or boost, there is no equal. Light wind performance was a little lack luster and I found that I would drag my wing tip right before I would get up onto foil on the 7M. This was the first wing that I have flown that made me think, "look how far wing design has come".

North Mode

I recently purchased a Mode 5.5 from you and I wanted to write about how spectacular the wing is. For context, I foil as fast as possible using a Sabfoil 103 mast, 800 wing. I rig big and I like to race my windsurf friends. With the 5.5 in 20kts they couldn’t believe the speed and pointing I had. Never felt overpowered, just like “give me more!” The pull is so strong, fast, and locked in it felt like windsurfing (or wind foiling without the drama).

It’s rare that you get to grab something new and know it is magic within the first few minutes. I really hope North expands the line.

First impresssion: This wing is fantastic!

This review is my first impressions from trying this wing out on a session. Best way I can describe this wing, is it takes the Nova which is already a good wing, and bring it to the next level. Mode is super light weight in your hands, floats great behind you when riding (balanced and light weight), and has good low end power to get up and go. Hard handles make it easy to redirect and manipulate during transitions. The N-Weave material seems to really have taken a good wing design, and made it light weight. Love it! Stoked to get some more sessions on this wing.
