The North 2010 Vegas is a classic C-shape with a pure C feel and massive pop for radical new-school freestyle. Building on the best points of the '08 and '09 the '10 Vegas kitesurf kite has the classic feel you've come to expect from one of the world's most popular freestyle kites with added benefits.
Designed specifically for freestyle riding, no compromises were made towards developing a kite with the performance potential necessary for tackling today's most technical new-school tricks. Further development of the 5th element system, allowed us to develop a true C kite with great stability and rock-solid power, combined with maximum safety and de-power abilities. Reduced Canopy Segments and special construction translates into smooth, intuitive and playful turning characteristics that are easily recognized in kite loops where the kite climbs back up overhead for controlled landings. Our most homogenous North Vegas line ever. All sizes offer an incredibly similar feeling in both turning speed and bar load, requiring nearly no adjustment time when switching kite sizes.
Two trim options allow you to set up your Vegas 2010 kite in either "classic" or "new-school" modes. Classic freestyle mode provides high de-power and gives you the most versatile range for doing big jumps, un-hooked freestyle and even venturing into the surf. New-school mode gives you less de-power, extreme stability while unhooking and less sensitive bar reaction for doing loaded power moves. Simply put, the Vegas is the ultimate freestyle kite with explosive pop to elevate your riding to new levels and to refine your style. Vegas, we play the music!
