Hi Crew,

We are stoked to introduce the all new 2017 JUICE.
For 2017:
- we have increased the wind range.
- improved the handling.
- added segmented canopy for increased stability.

Check it out and demo now at your local North Kiteboarding Dealer.

Enjoy.

You forgot to mention that you'll need to take a second mortgage out to own 1...

Hi nkbaus- nice vid- it was a little light on for info though, what about the performance in waves or with directionalls in general? How does the juice stack up against the mono? Particularly the 15m vs 15m?

Hi Youngbreezy,Its hard to say.The Mono has a heavier bar pressure compared to the Juice.
The Juice has a smoother feel and response, where as the Mono suits more aggressive input.The Mono only goes to 15m (as you mentioned) where as the Juice is 15m and 18m.

Personally I would say that the Mono is more suited to directional or wave riding, where as the Juice is more suited to all round freeride. (it also unhooks pretty good).Best way, is the demo them both.Most dealers should have both 15m Monos and Juice's to compare.And don't worry Fly on the wall, the Mono is cheaper, so maybe thats your light wind option.
(means you can keep your house too. )

i hear the 15 was designed as a lite wind kite for little/normal dudes and 18m was designed for bigger guys

do the kites scale exactly or is there some differences in the 2 kites to accommodate this ?

Hey nkb Aus, a little of topic but is there any plans to release the North Nugget in the Pro construction? I think this would be the best light wind combo (yes I have a Juice and Nugget currently). I just prefer the lighter construction in the surfboard range!

Hi Fruuugz,The 2 sizes are based on the same design profile, but just the size of the canopy varies.The 18m is a big kite, so definitely would be suited to bigger riders.I'm 78kg and the 15m works for me fine.

Hi Jonny,The Nuggett is one of our biggest selling boards.By offering it in the CLASSIC construction (current) it not only gives the board additional structural strength but also keep it in the price bracket for the majority of customers.

Offering it in PRO light would be a sick board, but it would price it out of the market.

I've got the Juice 15 and 18 and the Mono 15 in my school and I've used them extensively, love all of them. They just extend my fun range (sweet spot ) when kiting. If I had to pick one, hard choice, I will say the 18 does have more bottom end. But if its blowing 10knts or more the 15 is awesome fun for jumping so to me it depends on how light you want to kite in. If it's that you want to go in the lightest wind possible well the 18 is the go. Ive had a session in the lake here 2-6 knts on my foil riding upwind, with my gps reading 20 km/h.

The Mono I've had out 3 times pretty good but I cant give a good comparison yet will say great pivotal loops on waves and it was pretty light when I was out really good relaunch but I need more time on it to be able to tell the difference.

I guess you miss out then!Oh wait maybe "you're just trying to keep the marketers honest"??
Please share your wealth of knowledge and explain what a "honest" price for a new 18m kite should be??
