They are great kites and I am sure they will remain great kites.

As for the name, the first thing I thought of was "fake tan" product. :)
First thing it reminded me of is two-tone paintwork! 8)

So, why don't we give them a last chance and a hand to show them that there are a million better brand names than duotone. From the top of your head, put down a better brand name than duotone...
I'm not a North fanboi but how about "Rebel Kitesurfing"?

Well at least they're Duotone rather than Monochrome. :lol:

Re: Havent been kiting for over a month..... Dont care!

I've been kiting three times in the last week :-) and it now looks windless for the next couple of weeks. :-( So now I'll get back on my semi offroad trail bike/supermoto and hit some dirt and twisties! :thumb: Ooh, and I'm 71 years old so I'd better be careful not to hurt myself! Yeah, right! What ...

Re: Kite Inflation Tips (Cabrinha Kitesurfing)

Why not bend a tip or stand it up and SEE/FEEL it. I guess I don’t get why you would possibly care what a gauge says? Especially a cheap inaccurate one? I use the gauge to get me to the point when I know I need to start feeling the LE for the final squeeze test. http://emoticons.datahamster.com/yea...

Depends on the LE diameter. Kitesize is irrelevant. But it's a guide, so they generalize by size.
Yes, a better general inflation guide would be 'x' psi per LE diameter.

Re: Kite Inflation Tips (Cabrinha Kitesurfing)

The above inflation pressures obviously depend on leading edge diameters. For example, my 12m Enduro V2 with it's relatively skinny leading edge is definitely under inflated at 6-7psi.

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Yes. Remember, I work directly with the marketing department... And it can happen that they North Sails comes with its own kites. Or maybe license to another brand. But they need to go a long way to get where Duotone is. Yeah but you are dealing with the Duotone marketing dept. and not North-mother...
