Atmos Hybrid

FREERIDE / BIG AIR

A high-performance Freeride board for excessive boosting, looping and soft landings. The Atmos lets you edge in harder to load up the board, build up line tension and release into Earth's atmosphere. The perfect harmony between outline, rocker and flex makes this the ultimate all-terrain board for progressing your freeride to another level, in all conditions. The Atmos has a playful feeling, and yet is powerful upwind with precise edge control for carving. Designed to ride overpowered with ease and control, while still enabling early planing and low-end performance.

 

Technology

Atmos Hybrid Construction

The Hybrid construction has strategically placed layers of unidirectional carbon tape in high load areas, for reinforcement of the E-glass laminate, sandwiched with a Paulownia wood core. This allows for a well-balanced, forgiving flex and ride comfort.


Paulownia Wood Core

Lightweight and impact resistant, Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios. Ultra lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance, Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.


Dynamic flex

The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.

 

Atmos Carbon Construction

Refined Carbon laminate layup for higher performance. Thoughtfully selected and arranged combination of woven roving and biaxial carbon fibre fabrics and unidirectional reinforcements provides an extremely fast response when loaded, with greater torsional and longitudinal board flex.

2020 NORTH FLEX STRAP KIT

Features

  • Gripflex Material

    There are two touchpoints in kiteboarding, your control bar and your feet on the board. We wanted those touch points to be as soft as possible, with just the right amount of grip. Until now to get that grip you’ve also had to use quite a hard material, but we’ve developed a super-comfy rubberized EVA to give soft cushioning while maintaining grip underfoot. When it’s wet the grip improves.
  • Knitflex comfort and support

    The actual strap is laminated to the soft conforming foam inner, so when it creates a 3D curve you won’t have any bunching or creasing, and there’s no inner stitching to rub on your foot.
  • Triple Density

    If you use an industry standard soft foam material underfoot, when you land hard it’s going to bottom out and bruise your heel. Instead, we’ve used a triple density foam built up in three layers: soft touch under your feet with a medium density frame to take most of the load, then for serious impact we’ve added a high-density layer which is over-molded together with the medium density
  • Sustainable

    We’ve stripped them back to what you need. Other brands offer changeable heel inserts, but these often end up as waste or landfill. We’ve included just one dual molded heel impact pad on the bottom side, optimized to absorb serious impact. All twin-tips feature retailer-friendly standardized M6 x 16mm Hardware = one tool. To upgrade you don’t need new hardware.
  • Split inner velcro straps

    Ensure a custom fit on top of foot for all shapes, sizes and rider styles.
  • Footpad canted inwards

    To encourage optimized weight distribution and knee alignment.
  • Flex adjusters

    Rear eyelets have an outward kick to ensure your foot never comes in contact with them on hard landings.
  • Optimized strap adjustment options

    Ensure correct fit for all sizes, with comfortable foot positioning for a secure feel and use of toe bar.
  • Top loading foot strap

    Allows for a super quick setup.
  • Forward sloping grip pattern

    Prevents foot slipping out during high rotation tricks.
  • Ramped toe bar

    Lock in your connection to the board.
  • 6” screw spacing

    6.0" to 6.5” insert spacing to fit most twin tips on the market.
  • Two Sizes
