2020 NORTH FOCUS CARBON KITEBOARD
PERFORMANCE FREESTYLE / FREERIDE
The Focus is a high-performance Freestyle board precisely engineered to push boundaries and generate ultimate pop for aggressive Freestyle moves. Master-crafted by our skilled engineers, who have thoughtfully positioned the full carbon laminate layup to provide a dynamic and responsive ride, with well balanced torsional stiffness and flex. Greater traction allows you to hold that rail and edge harder, while the geometrically stiffer backbone enables more controlled takeoffs. Your ideal balance between stiffness and flex, with butter-soft tips to reduce the impact load on landings and glide through chop.
Features of the North Focus Carbon Kiteboard:
Refined carbon laminate layup
For higher performance. Thoughtfully selected and arranged combination of woven roving and biaxial carbon fibre fabrics and unidirectional reinforcements produces a dynamic ride with precision flex and response.
Progressive rocker line
Combined with squarer, flatter outline generates ultimate pop for aggressive freestyle moves.
Quad concave bottom shape
Forms a geometrically stiffer backbone for more controlled takeoffs, with dynamic flex to disperse chop with ease.
Stomp your landings
Quad channels and butter-soft tips spread the load and soften the impact Item feature.
Harmonious equilibrium between rocker, outline and flex
Delivers easy carving through turns and greater traction, allowing you to hold that rail and edge harder to load up the board for an explosive release.
Lightweight and ergonomic TPE material with ultimate grip when wet.
30mm 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.
North Focus Carbon Technology:
FOCUS CARBON CONSTRUCTION
Refined carbon laminate layup for higher performance. Thoughtfully selected and arranged combination of woven roving and biaxial carbon fiber fabrics and unidirectional reinforcements provides an extremely fast response when loaded, with greater transional and longitudinal board flex.
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.
