Brand New 2011 North Rebel kite - 9sq metre Plus bar, pump etc
We bought this kite new from a kitesurfing shop while on holiday in Hawaii in 2012 and have never used it. We had great plans for taking up the sport but they didn't happen and so the sail and all the parts have been stored indoors and never even taken out of the bag until today and so it is in absolutely brand new condition. We're moving interstate and so it's time to sell.
The Rebel is North's flagship kite and has been their best selling kite for over 10 years. It is North's big air freeride kite.
The Rebel has become famous for it's direct de-power, smooth, predictable turning, even when de-powered, and short bar stroke. Flutter-free wingtips have again greatly improved the smoothness and consistency of the Rebel's turning. This smooth turning combined with optimized canopy profiles that are highly resistant to back-stalling provide seamless power delivery ideal for surfing. Improved bar feel and de-power in the small sizes means even more comfortable and accessible top-end so you can keep having fun even when the wind gets nuclear.
The loaded 5th line design provides the highest level of safety as well as being responsible for the unique short de-power stroke and direct lively feeling. Mainly due to the floating strut construction, the Rebels get a very direct and precise feeling - even when depowered. Our highest quality standard "Progression 10" construction means the Rebel is built to last and withstand the demands that serious riders put on their kites, as well as providing a long list of other slick details like back line V bungees and snag free strut ends.
