Committing to overpowered airs and megaloops in gusty conditions demands an unwavering trust in your kite. North's iconic premier 5-strut kite delivers incredible top-end control and allows you to hold down more power than any other kite per square metre.
Big jumps. Big hang time. Big wind range. The Orbit rockets you upwind fast, with effortless steering, extreme boosting and hangtime guaranteed to take your breath away.
Without changing the DNA of the kite, North have engineered it to feel smoother, lighter, faster, and even more predictable in the unpredictable. At North, they understand what riders want in a performance, big air kite.
For 2023 the Orbit feels even more responsive in all conditions. They've made small structural refinements to smooth out the canopy, optimizing the profile for less drag, faster forward speed and smoother turning.

Slightly refined bridling means the kite feels more stable and forgiving in overpowered, gusty conditions yet retains its ability to fly forward and catch you in kite loops. They've reduced the kite's overall weight with lighter bladders in larger sizes and introduced a new 2-ply canopy material reinforcement on the trailing edge.
The lighter the kite, the faster the steering, the more lift it creates, and the higher you jump. They've constructed the leading edge and struts in our lighter N-Dure Dacron to save significantly more weight without compromising strength or durability. They've also introduced two additional bar pressure options so you can choose from a lighter, more forgiving feeling in cruise mode, right through to ultra-direct steering with shorter depower travel in megaloop mode.
This new fourth setting gives you the confidence to loop the kite even lower. It is ideal for heavier riders on smaller kites and boosts wingtip support on those crazy 40knot + days. Tested by nature, proven on the podium. The Orbit has your back when the rules of gravity don't apply.

Team Rider Review from Greg Bucky:
“The new 2023 8m Orbit is my favourite kite for big air and kite loops. I’m 93kg and have flown it in 20 to 45 knots no problems. With the sweet spot for me been 25 to 35knots. With its great boosting ability, air time & responsiveness, my favourite thing would be how it loops. It’s definitely one of the safest kites on the market as it always seems to catch you, so great for people who are wanting to get into looping. Definitely looking forward to some more windy days to experience this kite some more.” 2023 North Orbit Kite 8m Navigator Control System North Fix Boots
