Wave

Art.-No. 44900-3004

The high-performance pure wave-riding kite, securing Airton Cozzolino and Matchu Lopes 3x World Champion titles, impressing with incredible handling and excellent drifting capabilities that can also perform for freeriding and foiling.

Key Features

Duotone Neo 2019

Fantastic drifting abilities

To get the most out of every wave session a kite needs to be exceedingly stable in the air with excellent drift, making it perfect for waveriding.

Responsive steering - powered or depowered

Whether you're powered or not, with the Adaptive Tip, kites have a very responsive steering at all time - powered or not.

Very powerful - but with great depower

Always the perfect amount of power which is required during waveriding. Choose at least one size smaller!

Flex Segment Leading Edge design

Special Flex Segments have been built into the leading edge, allowing the kite to twist even more when turning. This improves the handling capabilities of the Neo making it very dynamic.

Adjustable front bridle

The adjustable fornt bridle offers a freeride tuning setup. Those who want a more solid bar feel and kite feedback, should go for the Hard Adaptive Tip setting.

4 and 5 line setup

You can choose the best setup, depending on your preference and riding style. The 5th line makes it easier to relaunch.

Details

Duotone Neo 2019

The Neo is a high-performance purebred wave-riding kite with incredible handling and excellent drifting capabilities that can also perform for freeriding and foiling.
If you like nothing better than carving smooth bottom turns and smashing off the lips, then the NEO is the kite for you. Developed by Ken Winner alongside our pro wave riders and World Champions Airton Cozzolino, Matchu Lopes, Sebastian Ribeiro and Patri McLaughlin, this is the kite of choice on the GKA Strapless World Tour. Now with improved handling, thanks to the special Flex Segment which is integrated into the leading edge. This unique feature allows the kite to twist more when it is turning; this increases the responsiveness of the kite and results in a fast more dynamic ride. Of course, the NEO is still incredibly powerful and thanks to its lightweight, yet tough design the drifting ability is unsurpassed. Combined with the revolutionary Click Bar, you get a huge depower throw and the ability to dump all the power from the kite in an instant. Not only is this feature important during critical moments on the wave, it is also crucial for landing technical strapless tricks. The kite can be tuned to a freeride setting, which is great for cruising, boosting and foiling too. No matter what kind of conditions you ride, onshore, offshore, from small to flatwater strapless freestyle, the NEO is the only wave kite you’ll 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 Control

Die Trailing-Edge-Force-Control ist verantwortlich für die reibungslose Verteilung der Power zwischen den verschiedenen Materialien des Kites und leitet Spannungen in die richtige Richtung. Seit 2013 sind die Wellen höher und breiter, um Spannungspunkte zwischen der Dacron-Trailing-Edge und dem Trinity TX Canopy-Material zu beseitigen. Diese Änderung in der Konstruktion reduziert das Flattern und sorgt dafür, dass das Material sich nicht abnutzt.

Double-V Pigtails
Double-V PigtailsDouble-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
Kook Proof Connectors

Die Kook Proof Connection-Points verhindern Unfälle, indem sie sicherstellen, dass du beim Anleinen deines Kites die Leinen nicht versehentlich falsch verbindest.

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

Durch den Heavy-Duty-Closing-Seam sind die Leading-Edges aller Kites extrem langlebig. Das Dacron-Material an Leading-Edge ist mit einem selbstklebenden Insignia-Klebeband zusätzlich verstärkt und doppelt vernäht. Der Heavy-Duty-Closing-Seam an der Leading-Edge hält sehr hohen Spannungen und Diagonalkräften stand.

Fusion Strut
Fusion Strut

Diese Konstruktion ermöglicht eine kontrollierte Verteilung der Kräfte zwischen Strut und Leading-Edge. Die Struts sind zu 100% durch eine flexible Dyneema-Schnur mit der Leading-Edge verbunden, was für eine höhere Canopy-Spannung und ein sauberes Profil sorgt.

Self Rescue Handles
Self Rescue Handles

Die Self-Rescue-Handles auf der Innenseite der Wingtips sind im Fall eines Offshore-Breakdown leicht zu finden. Sie bieten beim Self-Rescue-Manöver einen guten, komfortablen Grip während der Fahrt zurück an den Strand.

Anti Snag
Anti Snag

Das Anti-Snag-Gewebe verhindert, dass die Leinen sich um das Tip des Kites verheddern. Waterstarts werden erleichtert und die Sicherheit verbessert.

Airton Cozzolino
“Big waves like One Eye in Mauritius or strapless freestyle competition in Tarifa, I just love the Neos and use them in any conditions!”
Airton Cozzolino
“The Neo is the perfect purebred wave kite for any wave and wind direction. For 2019, the Neo has even more impressive drift, smoother turning and extra power when you need it. So enjoy riding it 1-2sqm smaller!”

Sebastian Ribeiro
“I always wanted to have a kite that makes me push my limits and the limits of the sport on the waves. And the Duotone Neo is just made for that with its ability to drift, turn and power/depower whenever you need it.”
Sebastian Ribeiro
“The Duotone Neo is the best most responsive wave kite I have ever tried. I use it in all conditions, from the smallest waves to the biggest waves. From local beach break to firing Jaws.”

I've been riding the Neo since its inception. Every season the kite handling and its performance has been slightly different, always lots or pros, some cons though too... For me, the 2019 is without a doubt THE best Neo EVER!! It's combining all the pros from previous years plus new ones without any of the cons!!

If you're serious about waves or the progression there, the Neo is the one, there ain't any better wave kite out there. Just try and see for yourself!

BOTTOM LINE
Yes, I would recommended this to a friend.
