The Rebel has been part of Duotone’s history, and it is very much part of our future. The five-strut kite is the ultimate freeride and big air weapon, perfect for cruising lagoons or for soaring through the skies. For 2020 the leading edge diameter has been reduced, this makes the kite a little faster and a lot more efficient. In addition to this, there is also a new flatter section in the middle of the canopy profile. This unique design increases the power of the kite, while the designers have ensured the legendary depower of the Rebel remains. This means the kite now has a much bigger wind range, meaning fewer kites in your quiver and more time on the water if the conditions change. The new trailing edge wave design further enhances the life span of the canopy and reduces flutter. The Rebel has excellent sheet and go capabilities, meaning you can easily dial up power at the bar. It’s a fantastic kite for progressing, as it is so forgiving, however, it is also packed with performance too. The Rebel is the kite you need when you want to send it to the moon, if you want bigger jumps from your sessions, it’s time to join the Rebellion!
A totally new shape for 2020 and a brand new board in the Duotone range. Designer Ralf Grösel set out to build the ultimate kiteboarding twin tip and threw the traditional design brief out of the window. The result is a board that is striking to look at and incredibly engaging to ride, best in combination with the Juice! To make it light and responsive, Textreme carbon has been used in the construction, and this provides a vivacious feel when you are riding. The upwind performance of this board is unrivalled, set the edge and it tears off with a turn of pace that may surprise you, offering a foot position which makes a wrong positioning on the board nearly impossible. The parabolic outline is the key to this characteristic; it also makes the surface area underfoot larger, while reducing excess weight in the middle of the board. The flexy tips help to keep things in control and make the ride exciting and engaging. This is the perfect board for the rider who wants to enjoy light winds but doesn’t feel ready to learn to hydrofoil yet. It might look crazy, but sometimes the crazy ones were right all along, jump on the Ultraspike Textreme for the light wind ride of your life!
It’s always hard to make the best better, but a sure-fire way to increase the performance of any board is to reduce the weight. The Jaime Textreme utilises the finest construction techniques to integrate Textreme carbon into the lay-up process. This not only reduces the weight significantly, but it also adds even more responsiveness and a snappy launch pad into your tricks. If you love the ride of the Jaime but want that little something extra, then this is the board for you. With a slightly stiffer feeling, created by the carbon lay-up process, the board has a medium to hard flex. It is still fantastic to ride through choppy waters, and the snappy reflex and the quad channels, which provide mountains of grip and pop, enhance the take-off for every move. The Double Diffusor Base combines with the Absorption Flex Tips to give you incredibly smooth and soft landings, even in the harshest of conditions. Best ridden with straps the Jaime Textreme is the tool for the rider who wants a board that can do everything, with that little bit extra too. Have your cake and eat it too with the Jaime Textreme!
The most popular board on the planet just got redesigned for 2020; the Jaime epitomises what kitesurfing is about. Aimed at the rider that enjoys hooked freestyle as much as unhooked riding and loves to boost big when the wind is up, it’s an incredibly versatile board. The medium flex gives the right balance between great pop and a smooth ride through the choppiest of water. New for 2020 is the Carbon Web construction, this controls torsional stiffness and makes the board extremely responsive while ensuring a very connected feel when riding at speed. Quad channels in the base offer excellent grip, which makes take offs a breeze. The Double Diffusor Bottom and Absorption Flex Tips ensure every landing is a smooth one. Best suited to riders who wear straps the Jaime is one of the most progressive freeride and hooked freestyle boards on the market. If you want to find out why this board has caused such a stir in our sport, jump aboard and feel the feeling of freedom…
