Key Features

Duotone Neo

Unrivalled Steering even when depowered

This is one of the unique and enchanting features of the Neo, its ability to be direct and dynamic, even when the bar is pushed out, and the kite is depowered. This feature allows you to ride the wave how you like without thinking about bar and kite control.

Incredibly powerful with massive depower

The range of the Neo is legendary! It has a huge bottom end, meaning you can get going on a smaller kite before other riders; this, coupled with impressive depower, has you out riding for longer when the wind picks up, and you can get away with a smaller quiver.

Dynamic Handling

The turning speed of the Neo is exceedingly quick; not only that the kite been designed to react to bar inputs incredibly quickly, but this also makes it one of the most responsive kites on the market.

D/LAB Construction

This helps reduce the overall weight of the kite and improves performance, using materials like Trinity TX, making the kite light while offering excellent durability.

Geometry tuned to size

The larger kites have been designed to use a wider arc and have less sweep in the tips, maximising power. At the same time, the smaller sizes have more sweep and a narrower arc focusing on manoeuvrability.

Details

Duotone Neo

The Neo has more championships and accolades under its belt than any other kite on the market. It's been at the forefront of the surfboard movement within kiteboarding from the start, and that's not changing anytime soon. A set of unique characteristics combine to make this the best wave riding and strapless freestyle kite on the market. Firstly, the legendary drift enables you to ride waves how you want, focussing on your turns rather than worrying about the kite. This also helps in onshore conditions where slack lines are a regular occurrence; the kite will hang in the air giving you time to put tension back in the lines. When the wind is cross-onshore, you need a kite that can turn fast as you carve your lines into the face of the wave; once again, the Neo delivers! It's dynamic, it’s responsive, the turns are quick, and the change of direction is near-instantaneous. With multiple settings on the tips, you can also tune the kite to the day's conditions; having a flatwater strapless freestyle session, set it for maximum pop and powerful loops. Shredding the waves, tune it for maximum drift and rapid turning speed. The real ace up the Neo's sleeve is the power it delivers across the wind range; it's got lots of low-end power, meaning you can ride a smaller, more dynamic kite. The upper range is huge, with lots of depower, allowing you to have a 2-3 kite quiver to cover most wind conditions. If you are serious about riding a surfboard, whether for shredding waves or boosting airs, the Neo is the only kite you will ever need.

Trinity TX
Trinity TXTrinity TX

Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3x2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.

The 3x2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2x2 or 4x4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.

Load Distribution Panels
Load Distribution PanelsLoad Distribution Panels

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

Trailing Edge Force Control
Trailing Edge Force ControlTrailing Edge Force Control

The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

Self Rescue Handles

The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

Double-V Pigtails

These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.

Kook Proof Connectors

The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam
Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing SeamHeavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

Anti Snag

The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

Fusion Strut

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

True Quotes

Duotone Neo

James Carew
“The Neo is everything you need in a wave kite, responsive, drifts like a machine and you can always tell where the kite is in the sky.”
James Carew
“The Neo is my kite since many years, this year the choice between Neo and Neo SLS is extremely hard, both drift really good, have a great amount of power. The Neo just delivers the power in a softer, more forgiving way. When there’s waves, there’s only one choice, a Neo.”
