n this TEAM TALK video Tom Court explains more about the adaptive tip settings on the Duotone Dice. Each one of our kites has settings available on the tip of the kite that allows the rider to customise the kite's performance to their preference. Weather that is increasing or decreasing bar pressure, changing steering speed or influencing slack it is possible to get creative with your setup. This is a general overview of how these tip settings can change your kites performance...

At Duotone we take #TRUEKITEBOARDING to heart. For us this means pushing the sport in every direction and discipline as hard as possible. For this reason we organized the first ever Duotone Grom Search on December 8th.
We picked Caiupe, Brazil for the event because a lot of talent has come from this area over the years. The province of Ceara and specifically the town of Cumbuco has produced some of the best freestylers to ever pump a kite and is the home of the current world champion. In a place where most of the locals are struggling to eat daily meals or even have a roof over their heads kiteboarding is a way out!
For the Grom Search we went to the beach with an open mind. No list of reasoning on why we are selecting the kids. No heats, no competition. Just get out there and do your thing… It could be because of pure talent, power, style, personality, potential or a combination of these characteristics. But we were also looking to develop the local scene. We wanted to show that at Duotone we’re not only interested in the riding level but also academic potential. We don’t want to sponsor a kid who can do all tricks but can’t properly read or write.
That’s why the winners not only got supported with Duotone gear (quiver of choice + board of choice + boots + small Click Bar and a harness) but English lessons as well! We will stay in contact with their English tutor and if they complete their monthly schooling and keep progressing their riding they'll get new gear the following year. Then they'll have the opportunity to give their old kit (that we gave them this year) to a local shredder of their choice... And the cycle starts!
Among 50 entrants we picked two kids in the end, João Lucas Bandeira da Silva and João Pedro dos Santos, and we will be following them throughout their year.
Congrats guys, see you next year!
The ultimate low-wind, inflatable kite for riders who value performance and handling in the lightest of breezes, guaranteeing you some lonely sessions in nearly no wind.
This season the Duotone Juice is a completely new light wind concept - up from now on, any foiler or freerider will only need one size of a Juice in the quiver! Each size works in nearly the same wind range, but with different types of riders on different boards! Due to the brand-new superlight weight construction, the Juices are 15% lighter than in previous season and in combination with the new concept, you´ll be on the water earlier than ever before! Especially foilers will love the constant pull and the very consistent bar feedback during down loops.
Light, simple and devastatingly good, the Mono is a fantastic all-rounder that features just one strut and incredible handling!
Completely redesigned and reinvented from scratch, the Duotone Mono is light, simple and devastatingly good. It´s a fantastic all-rounder that features just one strut and incredible handling for entry level, foiling and twintips! If you want a pure, lightweight, do-it-all kite, the Mono is it. This season the whole concept has been questioned and all sizes have been completely redesigned by Ken Winner. Low end and especially high end have significantly been improved and flutter nearly eliminated. With just one strut and very dynamic handling it is sure to excite and the benchmark in one strut kites. In light winds the performance is incredible, not only can the kite fly in the slightest of breezes, but it is also very easy to relaunch too.
