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?

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 […]
