Isn't it a bit odd how little attention this kite is getting? I haven't found a single review yet. Obviously we are in Covid-times, but even so Duotone usually get a lot of attention - maybe more than any other brand.

Very curious to hear what people have to say about this kite. Love the 2019-version, but probably not my perfect kite - so curious is the 2021 might be. Right now I am leaning quite hard for the Orbit.

Tom Court, Lewis & Aaron were doing a mini UK tour promoting the 2021 Rebel, if you look at their insta / youtube channels there is lots of sick footage of them on it. But then... But then those guys can make anything look good...

I saw these. Also saw a vid of Tom Court using a rebel for a strapless session (which he then wrecked), which seemed odd as he's usually on a dice.

Yeah. Watching pros and listening to sponsored riders isn't generally speaking all that interesting when it comes to evaluating between kites. Maybe if you are thinking Dice or Rebel, but not if you are thinking Rebel or XR6 etc.

Yeah, it looked seriously impressive in the waves for a big air kite... But maybe that is all tom!

Yes, you could give him anything and he'd make it look good!

Really? To me it looked like the kite was about to fall out of the sky many times but tom kept it up with downloops or good steering. As soon as he was going too much downwind the kite looked like it was going to fall. I only watched the video once but it looked very sketchy to me.
