This year North introduces a new comet in its 2010 kite range, the FUSE is a 4 line kite. A kite designed for freeride and waves that aims to revolutionize the future of 4-line kites both in performance and handling. North says that Fuse is a powerful kite, with great wind range and great jumping ability with a new flange system that provides a good feeling at the bar, safe and easy.
As shown in the image on the first 2 positions pulley flange system does come across a “stopper” that North has been inserted to prevent the pulley can surpass that point and cause poor performance of the comet. Furthermore, this cap also helps to provide a better feel on the bar to avoid the nagging feeling steering that offers some kites with pulley systems.
You can see how it looks when you activate the security system of pulleys are fully liberated and move without the “stopper” affects them allowing the kite to lose all power in a way very much as if it will activate a system of 5th line.
North finally bet on the market for 4-line kites!!
