NorthTrace Review

Size: 145 x 45

Bindings: Flex LX

The Trace is North’s light wind oriented twintip. It ensures that extra push of power and drive in less powered up conditions or for lesser skilled riders that need help in tracking and riding efficiently upwind. The shape and design of the Trace features a medium curved rocker line, with a wider outline that carries through the parallel rails and into the wide tips. The squared and longer outline helps drive some extra power from your kite and keeps you going in lighter winds with less effort. The Trace is a great set up for beginners but it is also a great design for the intermediate level rider that wants to practice tricks and transitions in lighter winds with a bigger kite. The bottom shape features a centred spine with quad channels that follow right through to the tips. This aids in the easy tracking of the North Trace and helps it slice through some smaller chop. The Trace is well complimented by the new North Flex LX Binding, which are amazingly light and comfortable. This binding system is packed with features to ensure riders have the ultimate comfortable and locked in feel, regardless of foot size or shape.
