The all new North Reach Kite

A lively and playful all-rounder for big jumps, upwind performance and effortless relaunch, our Reach Performance Freeride is the one kite you’ll always reach for.

Evolved from a calculated fusion of the Orbit, Pulse and Carve, this versatile kite is designed to excel in every condition, from wave-riding to boosts, loops and freestyle tricks, and is the perfect match for our Sonar Foils. The fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while it’s lighter 3-strut construction delivers quick, responsive steering in even the lightest wind.

In the larger 13m and 15m sizes the Reach is a powerful lightwind kite, designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in.


Lively and playful, with unparalleled versatility and wind range, for whatever nature has in store.
