North VEGAS 2018 – Test & Review – Freestyle & Wakestyle Kite

 

It was the year 2015 when Aaron Hadlow arrived in the North Kiteboarding team. Thanks to his knowledge the VEGAS was completely redesigned.

Over the years this amazing kite has undergone further updates but these days is presented its 2018 version. Vegas is considered to be the perfect machine for kiteboarding freestyle new school.

The features of North Vegas are:

  • Pure C design
  • 5 Struts
  • 5 Lines
  • 3 possibility of setting on the front line (Low Depower – Medium Depower – Hight Depower)

The 2018 version is made of a new material called “Trinity TX“, much more resistant to tears, wear and deformation; thaks to it, the leading edge diameter was reduced without losing rigidity to the kite.

Lastly, the dacron inserts on tips and diameter of the pipes in the one-pump system increase, which allows a quicker and faster deflation.

The test

Although the sea conditions during the test were not really ideal, because of an annoying chop, we could still confirm that Vegas is the perfect kite for advanced freestyle kiteboarding.

The “slack” after the pop maneuver is infinite and in this year’s version maybe even more.

The Vegas 2018 has an impressive pull traction in the “hooked” jumps, offering the chance to make mega jumps worthy of note. In the landing phase, the force is enough to soften the water impact but certainly is not comparable to that generated by the delta-shaped kites.

We tested North Vegas 2018 in the “medium depower” configuration, using the wake bar; this is the setting that advises most of the freestyle riders of the North Kiteboarding team.

We have not seen any difference to the use of Trinity TX, which makes us think that this new material is relevant only for wear and toughness.

If you are looking for a kite that allows you to make maneuvers in the freestyle new school discipline: Vegas is the ideal one!

As we have not been able to find any flaws worthy of note…is your turn to try it!

    No, the feel on the bar is very similar, maybe a bit more slack.
