2020 NORTH ATMOS HYBRID KITEBOARD
FREERIDE / BIG AIR
A high-performance Freeride board for excessive boosting, looping and soft landings. The Atmos lets you edge in harder to load up the board, build up line tension and release into Earth's atmosphere. The perfect harmony between outline, rocker and flex makes this the ultimate all-terrain board for progressing your freeride to another level, in all conditions. The Atmos has a playful feeling, and yet is powerful upwind with precise edge control for carving. Designed to ride overpowered with ease and control, while still enabling early planing and low-end performance.
More forgiving flex so you can ride for longer, with flow and form.
Unidirectional carbon tapes
For structural reinforcement, precision flex and response.
Dynamic board flex
Allows you to ride in comfort, with precise edge control for carving.
Allows for early planing and great low-end performance with balanced flex pattern for rapid response & explosive pop.
Medium-high outline curve
Delivers easy carving through turns and always provides optimised grip.
Single concave centre to quad channel tips
Absorbs impact and ensures stable and predictable landings.
Integrated into deck shape to provide easy grip for board-offs.
Lightweight and ergonomic TPE material with ultimate grip when wet.
40mm fins included
Strong, abrasion resistant composite fins with dogbone washers and M6 screws.
Standardised SS316 M6x16 screws
All TwinTip board hardware enables use of the same PH3 screwdriver for assembly and makes replacement of parts super easy.
ATMOS HYBRID CONSTRUCTION
The hybrid construction has strategically placed layers of unidirectional carbon tape in the high load area, for reinforcement of the e-glass laminate, sandwiched with a paulownia wood core. This allows for a well-balanced, forgiving flex and ride comfort.
PAULOWNIA WOOD CORE
Lightweight and impact-resistant, paulownia is highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratio of any wood in the world. Ultra-lightweight, with high impact resistance, paulownia wood form a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin.
The flex characteristic of every twin-tip board is determined by the multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variation and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine-tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in the conjunction with the rocker line, plane shape view, and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.
