Kiteboarding gathers more and more fans as the time passes and as the enthusiasm for this extreme sport grows, so do the demands of the riders out there. The 2011 North kiteboard lineup has been created to meet all these demands and help riders push their limits to new levels. As we all know, kiteboarding is not a men’s sport only. There are a lot of women riders who love kitesurfing and perform outstanding out on the waves. Especially for women, North has developed a unique board, the Soleil.

The board is engineered on a structure that uses an improved flex for female riders, uses smaller footstraps and it is lighter, but offers excellent freeride and freestyle performance. Actually the board has plenty of pop, jumps high and has nice hangtime and can run at high speeds, so it is best used by advanced or intermediate women riders, who have already picked up the basics of kitesurfing.

The 2011 North Soleil went though extra research and development and intense testing before being released on the market. That is because it is created to offer maximum efficiency and versatility for the women who love kiteboarding. Since female riders have demand different features from a board, the Soleil is enhanced to be more responsive, to suit a lighter and less powerful rider and to offer effortless maneuverability. With the Soleil, any girl who knows a little about kiteboarding can experience an excellent freeride and freestyle session.

The board has plenty of power to deliver extra top speed, high jumps and excellent hangtime, and at the same time it is very easy to control and handle. The board features a narrower shape and compact, ergonomic outlines which allow the rider to tackle any wave and to experience a smooth and drag free glide. The innovative Super Flight Core used by North makes the board stiff and responsive and minimizes the wave impact force. The wave shock impact is also reduced by the Absorption Flex Tips of the board, which also improve grip and assure an accurate landing to provide a smooth and comfortable ride. The cylindrical concave bottom design and the enhanced rocker allow the board to optimize the water release and provide plenty of power for extreme tricks, as well as increased stability. The girls can ride fast, jump high and perform any move they want easy, safe and without any effort at all. The rounded rails of the board significantly improve the board’s maneuverability and offer excellent steering. The board can perform fast turns and nice carves, while the rider can focus on his maneuvers, without worrying about losing control even for a second. 

North has implemented the innovative 3D Wood Carbon Cap Sandwich and Responsive Centre Flex technology to increase overall performance and durability of the Soleil. This technology makes the board very solid, increases the tensile strength and assures a lightweight construction. Maximum comfort during the whole ride is provided by the soft and easy to adjust 3D footpads and the CNC 3D deck. Fast, accurate, easy to control and reliable, the North Soleil is just what a girl is looking for to conquer the waves.
