A new panel layout with an immensely stable Dacron frame and wave panels on the trailing edge, enhance durability and the overall canopy stiffness. The dynamic curve of the tip strut offers responsive steering, whilst the variety of different length pigtails give even more variation between the different settings.

2017 TRUST BAR 5TH ELEMENT
Maximum safety | Instant depower when needed | Maximum depower on short bar stroke | Easy relaunch | Patented 5th line system | Compatible with any kite model
Safety is an essential topic in a sport where you are facing the power of the elements and in some situations are totally on your own. The North patented 5th line system has provided the greatest combination of safety and performance for many years now. Year after year, the 5th line concept proves its reliability and 100% instant depower after a safety release no matter what the conditions. The system still has a commanding lead compared to other safety systems available on the market.
This is why North Kiteboarding believes in the 5th line concept. What’s more, the 5th line makes water relaunch effortless and the loaded 5th line kite designs (Vegas and Rebel) offer a very short depower stroke, giving the rider ultimate control in gusty conditions.
The benefits of this set-up are obvious and appreciated by riders all over the world.
