The New HOT water sport is gaining momentum, wing foiling , or foil winging , or winging , not sure what to call it yet !

Duotone have been ahead of the game with their foil wing, a design that has been 3 years in the making, drawing from their experience in kiting & windsurfing, & using concepts from their successful Irig.
The Duotone foil wing is a piece of equipment that has been totally thought through, well tested, & aimed at the simplicity of having fun in a range of situations.
As they say, the proof is in use !

Duotone Neo 2020

2020 NEO IN A NUTSHELL.
The 2020 Neo remains true to its roots and its purpose in life.
Fantastic drifting abilities, responsive steering-powered or depowered, 4 and 5-line setup.
It’s the go-to surf kite for all good and gonnabe-good wave riders looking to get the most out of every wave session.
Works well as a good kite for freeride and foiling kiteboarding.

– Great kite for Canterbury kiters who spend most of their kite on surf boards, but still want to foil & muck around on flat water. Easy relaunch, amazing drift & packing a punch for its size..
In 2019, Neo creator Ken Winner, made sure that this design never lost its central purpose of being the go-to surf kite for top level and hardcore wave riders like Airton Cozzolino, Matchu Lopes, Sebastian Ribeiro and Patri McLaughlin.
By tweaking and adjusting the minor details, he found the ultimate combination of power, turning, drift and intuitive bar […]

New Duotone Dice 2020

Last year Dice creator, Ralf Grösel, redefined the design in order to improve looping and boosting abilities, especially within the smaller sizes.
The outcome was an incredible performer and exciting ride prepped for hardcore conditions and ready to go big.

RALF, WHAT WAS YOUR VISION FOR 2020?
The starting point for the development of the 2020 Duotone Dice was in Cape Town, South Africa.
I knew that the foundations of the design already delivered powerful, snappy, predictable and versatile characteristics to the Dice, but I wanted to take it to the next level.
Drawing on the Red Bull King of the Air event and the needs of Duotone Team rider Lasse Walker, my vision was to enhance its extreme performance throughout all of its parameters.
HOW DID YOU ACHIEVE THIS AND HOW DOES IT TRANSLATE INTO PERFORMANCE?
For the first time ever, I removed the pulley within the kite bridles.
This small change has a big impact on […]

Time to unleash the beast –  2020 Duotone Vegas

The Vegas remains the most sold C shaped performance kite on the market ever.
A design inspired to take our team of world class riders to the top, 5 × World Champion and 2 × King of the Air Aaron Hadlow, our GKA competition team and GKA World Champion Mikaili Sol are dedicated to the Vegas.
Last year, Ralf’s goal was to fine tune and balance the Vegas perfectly.
He achieved this fluently by tweaking small details like the wave patterns, patterns on the Leading Edge and updates in the tension settings between the Leading Edge […]
