Re: Duotone 2021

Yes those look like the new Evo’s that Ralf is testing in the Netherlands with Lasse.

Re: Let's talk about our favorite kites for fast/powered riding.

If you want to go fast , go high aspect for sure. Since you already have your appolo’s why not use those ? Relaunch on a 4 line high aspect in light winds will be junk yes, but we invented a solution for that in 2006. The 5th line ! I ride on a low aspect surf foil, light wind kite is a 15m mono, bu...

Re: Axis Kiteboarding

Yes Axis make some great gear. I love Adrian’s boards, back since the underground days and still ride it to date. Foils are amazing as well and they are doing really well on the surf foil front. But their website and marketing ? Unfortunately lacking big time and I’m sure they could make a whole lot...

Re: Duotone Spirit Foil Range 2019

Hi Dan, Thanks a lot for your honest reply. I indeed hoped for some backwards compatibility to be able to “save” some of the parts and use them in future set ups. I’ll be looking into reinforcing my current fuselage with some carbon to get as much life out of it as possible then. Or will there be a ...

Re: Duotone Spirit Foil Range 2019

Nice looking new range of foils !! But I also see that the speedster range completely disappeared from the website. And that’s a bit concerning to me. They hyped their speedster massively with the carbon injection tech. Brand it unbreakable and superior etc... While the wings stand up to the use of ...

Re: Gin Marabou Water Relaunchable Single Skin

Finally ! Was about time that somebody made this into a full production model. The Monjet Ninox looks promising 2 years ago but that project went dead silent. I haven’t felt like any kite could be a massive game changer recently, but I have a strong feeling this one might be ! It would massively inc...

Re: Best pumping foil?

Signature albatross 210 is what i’d say is what seems to be the benchmark that many foil brands are duplicating now. Check out this pumping video :

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

yes i got good experience on both V1 and V2. We teach on them in the school since we have mostly light wind, last year we had 7-15m , this year 7-17m. For me the main difference is how much better the V2 handles stronger wind in its high end. the low end is nearly the same. The V1 suffered from the ...

jumping on North/Duotone Speedster.

Hi Everyone, Looking for riders that have experience jumping the North/Duotone speedster. I bought one when they first came out, love to ride it, but broke the first fuselage on session 3.... Got it replaced under warranty and they did a great job, but getting it to PH took me a while. Since then i ...

Re: Odo Kiteboarding Kites

Even though I haven’t seen them it looks very.... “boards and more- ish” The panel layout reminded me immediately to the old North, and now Duotone kites. Even all the rendered images look similar with position of LE segments etc. Add to that that one model looks like a Dice and another like a EVO. ...
