What riders say

"Simple, refined and intuitive. Right down to the sound of the closure. Push and click." - Hugh Pinfold

Think less, feel more

Release and reload faster with the intuitive single-action reload Connect Quick Release, and switch effortlessly between disciplines with the Toolless Interloop, our no-tools required modular harness loop replacement system. The Navigator Control System connects you intuitively to your kite, using premium leading technology Dyneema lines for precise performance. For 2021 we’ve widened the range with a new smaller bar size, and we’ve refined the ergonomic design even further for greater durability, increased tactile control and comfort. Sensing your kite's position just became second nature.

Premium 100% Dyneema SK99 flying lines

Strong, thinner profile, pre-stretched flying lines mean less parasitic drag and uncompromised direct performance.

Adjustable bar length options with NEW smaller bar size

Fine tune the turning speed of your kite. The Navigator is available in three sizes 50-55cm (L), 45-50cm (M) and NEW bar size 38-43cm (S) - suited particularly to small freeride kites and freestylers.

NEW omnidirectional grip with offset finger bar

Feel more connected. The Navigator is designed with a comfortable ergonomic grip for a natural grasp and the tactile offset finger bar is slightly oval, so you can feel when the control bar is orientated correctly. The colour-coded grip, leader tubing and line retainer pull tabs give a nod to our sailing heritage, port (red) and starboard (green).

Connect Quick Release with intuitive single-action reload

Fast, safe releases in a wide range of conditions. Our patented Connect Quick Release (QR) raises the bar in kite control system safety.

Technology

Connect Quick Release with intuitive single-action reload

Fast, safe releases in a wide range of conditions. Our patented Connect Quick Release (QR) raises the bar in kite control system safety. The red QR handle has been ergonomically designed to fit in your hand comfortably for an industry-standard push away release. All loaded or running surfaces feature highly polished 316 stainless steel and low-friction components. The stretchy, larger diameter bungee inside the QR helps reduce accidental release.

Toolless Interloop System with LockGuard

Switch effortlessly between disciplines - no tools required. Simply push, twist, pull, lock and go. Loops are made from optimised TPU material for flex and durability, with a more rigid freeride security finger to prevent unexpected unhooking. Flexible LockGuard safety ring prevents accidental release of your interloop.

NEW larger spinning leash attachment ring

Our NEW oval-shaped leash pin ring has been elongated for easier fastening of the leash carabiner, and spins to help prevent your landing line from twisting.

Soft EVA bar ends with retractable line winders

The positive buoyancy bar ends with integrated line winder bungees are injection moulded in one piece with no seams for long-lasting quality. The bar ends ensure nothing hard comes in touch with you or your board, float the entire bar, and also contain the concealed rear line adjustment. Even the best quality lines shrink over time, so after a month, we recommend you check your lines are all even and drop them to the bottom knot. It’s easy and takes only a minute to make the change.

Protective PU covered leader lines

To help prevent line abrasion from uncovered lines against your skin, we've used colour-coded PU tubing covers. The covers also help them remain rigid and out of the way when the flying lines aren't under tension.

Adjustable cleated trim system

Provides industry-proven line-adjustment when needed. The cleat base has been designed with NEW circular geometry for consistent bar spin, in other words, no jamming when you’re doing a barspin megaloop. In overpowered conditions the cleat allows you to shorten your front lines and adjust your body position.

Lightweight over-molded trim handle with Dyneema lines

Easy to reach molded trim handle doesn't hurt when it hits you. Made from Nylon/EVA for strength with a textured soft-touch grip. Top quality German-made extremely high wear Dyneema depower and trim line with a special impregnation coating for resistance to abrasion.

Durable covered mainline, with customised TPU tubing

Symmetrical multibore landing line channel allows the landing line/flying line to pass through without snagging, regardless of the orientation when deploying or reloading. Crafted from a patented material specifically formulated for high abrasion flexible applications.

Adjustable length flying lines 22m (12m + 10m)

22m lines have a split at 12m, which is far enough for the bar to travel to completely depower our largest kite when you flag out. Remove the standard 10m top section of flying line and 12m lines are ideal for schools to teach with and for foil racing. 8m and NEW 6m line extensions are available as an accessory for wave riding or tighter kiteloops.

The Navigator is designed with a comfortable ergonomic grip for a natural grasp and the tactile offset finger bar is slightly oval, so you can feel when the control bar is orientated correctly.

Kook-proof flying line connectors

Ensure you always set up your flying lines correctly. Designed to be exactly the same length so you can easily change the front (knotted end) and rear (lark's head loop) connectors to match most other manufacturers' kite configurations. Please familiarise yourself with the safety procedures and trimming instructions outlined in your kite’s user manual.

Premium Quick Release Leash

The Navigator Control System is supplied with a premium quality freeride Leash with a high load carabiner, soft neoprene cover and non-abrasive elasticised webbing. The NEW leash QR mechanism has been modified to ensure correct orientation is maintained when released for consistent, safe release and reload.

With 88m of flying lines in the air, you can really feel the difference thinner line creates. Our latest technology high-load LIROS DC-401 Pro flying lines have extreme stretch resistance and minimal diameter (1.6mm).

Review by REAL Watersports: 2021 Navigator

"North’s done a great job making improvements off of an already excellent bar." - Matt Nuzzo

Review: North Carve & Navigator Control System

"It is a really direct feel. You can always feel where the kite is, but at the same time, it is really light."
- Jon, Surf FX
