2024 North Pulse Kite

2024 North Pulse Kite

Freestyle / Wakestyle

Sizes:6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 11m, 12m, 14m

ITEM INCLUDES: Kite, Kite Bag, Repair Kit


The explosive pop, powerful fast turns and responsive steering of our high-performance freestyle kite will set your heart pumping. The Pulse comes alive in unhooked Freestyle, and makes landing even the most technical tricks instinctive. Its upright, low sweep design ensures the twist introduced by the steering impulse goes much deeper into the centre of the kite, so it turns throughout the entire canopy and the power delivery is constant through the entire loop. The leaner profile entry and slightly higher aspect ratio of the Pulse makes it efficient and smooth-handling, especially in extreme overpowered conditions. The 2024 Pulse has increased performance and lift, drive through the kite loop, better recovery and improved slack line and pop. We’ve reduced the amount of Dacron reinforcement material and introduced lighter weight bladders in all sizes for a lighter, faster-flying kite. The Pulse is the ultimate in performance freestyle, with impressive freeride capabilities for super-high boosts and kite-loops.

  • Highest quality Dacron airframe



Fast responsive steering with FlexPulse structure

The low sweep arc shape gives the kite a more powered turn through the entire wing. Its upright design ensures the twist from the steering lines runs deeper into the centre of the canopy

Bridled hybrid design  

The ultimate unhooked performer with balanced line slack for handle passes and unhooking – the hybrid design blends the best of both worlds.

Dynamic edge response

A combination of higher aspect ratio, smaller diameter leading edge and aerodynamic, leaner profile entry enables the Pulse to fly forward quickly after an explosive pop or when checking a rail edge.

Durable, higher tensile leading edge seams 

There is a large amount of force on the closing seam of the leading edge due to inflation and steering movement.

Lightweight bladders now in all sizes 

Bladders make up a bigger weight percentage than any other material used in a kite

DuraLite seam protection 

Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge.

 Ergonomic HyperFlow rapid inflation

New ergonomic high volume single point inflation system with large diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation

Lightweight 2-ply canopy reinforcement material

We’ve reduced the amount of heavy duty canopy reinforcement in the Pulse. The Trailing Edge is a 2-ply canopy material

Aerodynamic profile transition panels

The extra panels that connect to the leading-edge seam are now a single ply of canopy material for a less complicated, smoother profile entry

High Performance N-HTRS canopy

All our kites are manufactured using North High Tenacity Ripstop (N-HTRS) polyester yarn canopy material for lightness, high tear strength, zero porosity and longevity.  

Durable highest-quality Dacron inflated structures 

All of the inflated structures and the wingtips in the Pulse are constructed from the highest quality industry-proven Dacron for the best strength to weight ratio in a heavy-duty application. 

No-pulley, low drag bridle lines

Our highest-quality, low-profile, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency

Fast in flight

The refined 2-stage arc design enables a smooth curved efficient central region of the kite to produce power, with straighter wing tips for a more dynamic steering response. A narrower span kite such as the Pulse is fast in flight, with less power overall than a wider span kite such as the Orbit.

Kevlar reinforced strut system with bridle deflectors

For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge. Bridle deflectors on the leading edge prevent the control lines catching on the struts.  

Personalised performance tuning options

Bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip, allowing you to fine tune the kite's characteristics to your personal preference.
