2016 North Rebel

  • BIGGEST WINDRANGE
  • BEST HANGTIME AND HIGHEST JUMPS
  • BEST SHEET & GO POWER DEVELOPMENT
  • GREAT UPWIND PERFORMANCE
  • EASY WATER RELAUNCH
  • LOADED 5TH LINE

The new 2016 Rebel is the ultimate kite for huge jumps and massive hangtime! There have been quite a few changes across the range this year to ensure it still delivers the maximum performance across all the sizes. The smaller sizes in the range now feature a lower aspect ratio, which makes them smoother in gusty winds whilst also improving the turning speed of the kite. This makes the smaller Rebels even livelier than before without loosing stability and still allows you to boost huge airs. 

The middle sizes in the range offer the perfect blend between turning speed, handling and jumping ability. The profile and aspect ratio of these kites has been tweaked to offer amazing performance. The 12m to 14m kites now have a higher aspect ratio, which offers higher jumps, longer hangtime and better power delivery with a smooth bar feel. The big 16m Rebel shares a similar shape and profile with the 14m, but the bigger 16 has more of an emphasis on low end power and jumping ability replacing the Rebel 18. 

The Rebel has always been the class-leading kite; now each size has been designed to offer the ultimate in freeride and jumping performance regardless of the wind conditions.
