The Juice is our light wind kite and therefore perfect for freeriding

in light winds. Available in two sizes, 15 and 17m, it’s a

great kite for riders looking for a light wind cruiser with playful

characteristics, good handling and amazing jumping abilities.

The Juice is dynamic and exciting; riders can enjoy smooth fast

turns, plenty of low-end power and excellent float through the

air too. The kite is also incredibly easy to relaunch, something

that is important in light winds. These characteristics have been

achieved by using a light wind construction method that keeps

the kite in the air in the smallest of breezes. Using just three

struts also reduces the weight but ensures the canopy is stable

when the wind increases, giving the kite a good wind range. If

you want to be the first person on the water, you need the Juice

in your life!

WHAT’S NEW ON THE 2018 JUICE?

The Juice has been redesigned to match the latest trends in light

wind kiting and foiling. We tweaked the Juice towards a high

aspect ratio and higher Delta without compromising handling

aspects.

BETTER UPWIND ABILITY & ACCELERATION

The new Juice 2018 moves faster towards the edge of the wind

window, allowing to go upwind more easily. Due to the faster

and thinner profiles, the kite also accelerates faster, helping to

find more grip and therefore more pop for jumps. This results in

higher and incredibly floating jumps.

BrisKites initial review of the 2018 Juice-

My initial thoughts and experience on the new 2018 North Juice updated design.

Pumping the new 17m up for the first time and it is obvious the new Juice is very different than previous models. Aside from construction changes like the new Trinity cloth, the kite is very obviously higher aspect than previous models. It also has a much more rounded sweep in the wingtips.

In the air-
As expected with the new shape the Juice now pushes much further to the edge of the window and drives upwind with great ease. The jumping is natural and offers a little more float than previous models.
It seems North have managed to maintain good turning speed despite the higher aspect. I was able to complete a couple of loops in very light wind on the 17m before landing back down. 

Overall experience-
The new Juice has possibly lost a small amount of it's freestyle unhooked capability however overall I feel the overall experience is much better and the kite should have a much wider appeal. Probably the nicest and most versatile 17m kite I have flown to date. 
We loaned this kite to a couple of riders and the feedback is much the same.

Never been a fan of light wind kiting - always seemed like too much effort for simply riding underpowered back and forth (like mowing the lawn) However I gave this 15m Kite a go on a 12kt -14kt afternoon seabreeze and was completely blown away. I'm 90kgs and the Juice had plenty of power for keeping upwind, moderate sized jumps with surprisingly quick turning action. I could even practise some of my limited moves (front rolls, double backs etc) that I am sometimes hesitant to try on those 25kt days. The biggest thrill was having a huge smile on my dial on an afternoon I wasn't even contemplating on going out on. Now to speak to the minister of finance on getting one of these puppies!!! - Travis
