North Vegas (2011) Hot
The Vegas is a pure c-shape kite that embodies radical new-school riding and delivers the precision feel needed to stomp today's most technical tricks and challenge tomorrow's limits. A non-compromise design that delivers massive pop, steady pull and a predictable, direct turning radius. Pull the trigger on massive mega-loops or unhook and launch into a mobe with the assurance of rock-solid pull and steadiness. The Vegas delivers high de-power with the widest range of use although it’s a C-kite and gives you virtually no de-power for full-on powered wakestyle. The 2011 Vegas: Style and conviction without compromise.

After reading Jacks & Victors'review I had to reply.
we have a 2007 Vegas 10.It is used on hot South African beaches.
It has never been repaird,no leaks ever.The kite is geting old.Lines are old
Bar has been replace because of salt water.
My son has a new Globe9 & Star8bow.He says he wants to sell the Vegas.
But after a few weeks he rides the Vegas again.All he can say is with a smile is WOW !
WORST VALVES ON EARTH
THE VALVES SISTEM AND GLUE USED IS ONLY FOR COLD WEATHER, IT WOULD SPOIL YOUR TRIP TO MAUI OR MEXICO AS THIS KITE DID TO US
best wakestyle kite...bad relunch
Wonderfull c-kite...good pop, easy hunooked end is a perfect kite for progression wakestyle trick
The build quality is medium...not bad but not very good.
Control bar ok...very ok,
Depower is good if comparated than other c-kite
The problem is a relunch...in 2011 you relunch the vegas same you udes a 2004 c-kite ....not good.
I was not too sure what road to take when it was time for me to chose a C kite. Fuel, Vegas or C4? After endless hour to mental debate and information gathering i have made my choice of going with North Vegas. What can tell you about the kite. For now my transition from North Fuse is nothing but pure satisfaction. Fuse was locking a raw power that Vegas is able to provide on demand each and every time. It jumps so HUGE and Hang time is insane. You sit there and wonder am i going down or still going up? Am i going to land at all? The loops on the kite a effortless and smooth no unexpected yanks or jerks. Very Direct and ultra fast.
To summarize the blah blah. The KITE ROckS! Get it and you will LOve IT too.
I had the chance to try the new Vegas, the first i tried was 14m and i was shocked how stable, fast, responsive and huge depower it had.
I know it might sound stupid but i could get it to catch me again in loops... and that was the 14m !!! and it jumps HIGH for a 14m
The 10m has all the same good things but is faster, i think it was faster than 9m Torch, i rode them back to back in 26 knot, oh and vegas can eat more wind even though it was 1m larger
The jumps were HUGE, and in the loops i felt something i havent felt before, on the upstroke it kind of accelerated and really gave some lift like a second jump and it was easier to make smooth landings
There is absolut no flapping, vibrating and other bad habits in the kites and they didnt really care about gust and holes, absolutly stunning stability, very few can match this if any and they feel very aerodynamic and cuts through the air
This must be the most user friendly C shape, everything is so easy with these kites even in the top of the wind range where i like to kite, most other c shape gets more brutal and leave small room for mistakes
The bar is just perfect, best 5 line bar i have seen, 25m lines were used
I really had decided to get the 2011 Fuels but now i am in doubt, the 2010 was the eye opener for me
I have demoed Hifi 2011 9m 11m many times and Torch 2011 9m 11m but not the new Fuel yet, and they all boost big, so no sle for me anymore :)
I came from 09 deltas but they didnt work well enough for catching in loops, so that is my main preference for my new kites and c shape rocks
This is a must try kite, but now you are warned ;)
Just my thoughts on these beautiful kites
