    Technology

    NEW N-WEAVE 45 AIRFRAME
    30% lighter. 3x stiffer. 2x torsionally stiffer than a traditional Dacron (176gsm). 
    The new cross-weave reinforced N-Weave 45 airframe creates a stiffer, lighter rig that holds its shape when under load and has a highly efficient power delivery. The biaxial 45-degree laminate helps to control the torsional stiffness of the airframe. North developed N-Weave, a low-elongation, high tensile strength woven fibre, to help reduce geometric compromise in our inflated structures. N-Weave45 reduces structural deflection and transfers wind energy into greater forward speed, explosive boost and hangtime for freestyle tricks. The weight savings translates into greater performance, more efficient power delivery in light air, and makes the wing easier to handle in all conditions. N-Weave also has very high cut and abrasion resistance. The UPE fibres that make up N-Weave are known for their resistance to water, moisture, most chemicals, UV and microorganisms. UPE is also known for its durability and toughness.

     

    NEW MATRIX-NHTRS CANOPY
    Matrix is a high-performance stretch-resistant wing canopy material specifically designed to handle the higher loads of the N-Weave45 frame. 
    Compared to a traditional canopy Matrix is 2.5x stronger on the 0/90deg warp/weft direction and 5x stronger on the 45deg bias direction. This gives your wing canopy greater structural integrity for longer. It will maintain its designed shape over time, especially when used in the overpowered conditions that the Mode Pro excels in.

     

    VMG-OPTIMIZED DESIGN
    North's primary design objectives for the Mode were speed and VMG, or Velocity Made Good, which indicates your speed towards or from the direction of the wind. The wing's fast, VMG-optimized design enables you to sail closer to the wing, on higher upwind angles, reducing your need to tack or gybe, so you reach the mark as quickly as possible. 

     

    FREESTYLE AND FREERIDE PERFORMANCE
    North designed the Mode for high-speed performance, but the stiffer airframe also translates into unprecedented loft for higher jumps and forward momentum on landings. 

     

    HIGH END STABILITY AND IMPRESSIVE WIND RANGE
    Any rider will benefit from the Mode's stability and tensioning. Once you're high up on the foil it's designed for stability at the high end - whereas the Nova and Loft Pro are designed for better performance in the low end. 
    The 3.5 to 4.8m are designed for use in stronger winds, while the 5.5 and 6.8m are optimised for greater power in lighter air. The larger 6.8m is ideal for going at higher speeds in lighter wind. It might be trickier to get up on the foil but once up on the foil it has higher top-end speeds than the Loft Pro (speed is foil dependent too).

     

    NEW PANEL LAYOUT
    Stabilizes the wingtips and increases tension under load. 

     

    COMPACT OUTLINE WITH REDUCED WINGSPAN
    Balanced lower aspect ratio design with rounded wingtips to reduce tip strike. 

     

    CONNECTED DUAL INFLATION VALVES
    There are two HyperFlow Inflation valves, one on the LE and one on the strut, with an interlinking valve and hose. 
    This enables you to inflate the strut to a higher pressure than the leading edge. The connecting hose allows rapid single-point inflation and deflation. The N-Weave material also has a higher inflation pressure capacity, which enables you to to use a smaller wing size, without sacrificing power.

     

    NEW CARBON GRIPLOCK HANDLES
    Rigid Carbon GripLock micro-trim control handles for immediate response and intuitive transitions. 
    The lightweight carbon handles radically transform the way you ride, with instant control and reduced hand-fatigue. The two long handlebars are wrapped in a soft EVA grip for comfort, and enable you to slide your hands into optimum trimming positions to control the wing’s pitch, yaw and roll, while keeping your body positioned perfectly over the foil. More freedom in your hand placement lets you choose the best feel based on the conditions, your arm length, and your body size.

     

    GYBE-FRIENDLY WINDOW POSITIONING
    North placed two smaller windows in front of you so you can see downwind. North also placed a window towards the end of the strut for a visual on what's behind you.
