North Nova Pro & ShiftLock

North are innovators: sailing technology is now re-imagined with the all new Nova Pro + ShiftlLock.


The all-new Nova Pro by North delivers light and precise handling in every wind range, with ShiftLock, an industry-first Modular Track Mounting System for finely tuned performance and control.

The new ShiftLock Carbon handles provide an instant reaction to your input, with the bonus of being able to slide the handles (or boom) into infinite positions along the strut.

“We wanted to create a high-performance freeride wing that would ignite your creativity and your desire to progress. The Nova Pro introduces advanced material technology and customization to our popular Nova Freeride. It really is for riders who want to step it up,” says North Brand Director, Mike Raper.

ShiftLock is a re-invention of the Bolt Rope system used in sailing – the most common and robust method to fix a sail to a mast. The North Development team has successfully adapted this method for wing-foiling using a double bolt-rope track.

To prove the system’s strength and durability, the team carried out cyclic load and on-water testing for two years without failure or excessive wear – ShiftLock has a breaking load of well over 710kg.

It's also kept the system light in weight and low impact. Two 500mm ShiftLock Carbon handles (with the track) are lighter than two standard 500mm wing handles, while the soft TPU handle bumpers help protect you and your board from impact damage.
