DUOTONE JUICE 2019
COMPLETELY NEW LIGHT WIND AND LIGHT WEIGHT CONCEPT
DUE TO THE USE OF COMPLETELY NEWLY DEVELOPED MATERIALS, THE JUICE IS THE BENCHMARK IN LIGHT WEIGHT DESIGNS.

DUE TO NEW RELAUNCH BUNGEES NOT ONLY ON THE TRAILING EDGE BUT ALSO AT THE LEADING EDGE, WATER RELAUNCH IS EASY, ON FOUR OR ON 5 LINES.
INNOVATIVE, LIGHTER DACRON MATERIAL FOR TRAILING AND LEADING EDGE
INNOVATIVE AND NEWLY DEVELOPED LIGHT WIND MATERIALS ENSURE THE MINIMUM WEIGHT OF THE JUICE, YET OFFERING ENOUGH DURABILITY.
INNOVATIVE, LIGHTER BLADDER MATERIAL
EVEN ON THE INSIDE WEIGHT WAS SAVED USING A NEW AND THINNER BLADDER MATERIAL.
SUPER LIGHT-WEIGHT CONSTRUCTION 3-STRUT DESIGN
A BENCHMARK IN LIGHT WEIGHT DESIGN, ACHIEVED THROUGH THE MIX OF ALL EFFORTS SAVING WEIGHT DUE TO NEW DESIGNS AND MATERIALS.

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.
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
