These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.
The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

Our mission is simple, yet the foundation of everything we do at North Kiteboarding. Pushing the boundaries of progression and design innovation, we remain committed to unifying premium technology with the latest production techniques, skilled workmanship and fair labour in both Austria and Sri Lanka.

Kiteboarding is a way of life, and for us a kite is more than just a kite; it’s a statement and a reflection of your inner style. For more than 10 years, our innovative breakthrough in materials and technical design has allowed us to remain one of the leading brands of the industry. We believe there’s no substitute for anything other than high performance and premium quality products. Our evolutionary systems are a result of our ingenious in-house designers and R&D team, and we consider our technological advancements as key contributors to the growth and safety of the sport.
There are 3 aspects to this approach that complement each other and have to work together seamlessly:
1. MATERIALS AND HARDWARE
2. EMPLOYEES AND PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES
3. CONSTRUCTION DETAILS AND DESIGN
The loaded 5th line is a “nose line” with constant tension. This tension is responsible for reactive steering, powered as well as depowered and a crisp and direct bar feel. Only the 5th line system can guarantee 100 % depower in less than one second when releasing the Iron Heart.
PLEASE NOTE: Should you choose to deflate the kite via the DUMP VALVE, ensure to loosen the valve cap of the Airport Valve II before opening the dump valve. This prevents a possible rotating of the bladder in a deflated state.
A short sizzling noise, which is a very small amount of air escaping from the interspace of the valve, when taking off the bayonet fitting is normal. The valve enables fatigue-proof inflation due to the bigger air passage. Even bigger kites will be inflated with ease! The new North Kiteboarding pump works 100% perfect with the Airport Valve I and II.
