Rebel SLS 2022

The new Rebel SLS is here to redefine the expectations of big air and high performance freeride kiteboarders across the globe. The heritage of the Rebel is second to none, but this year the new Penta TX frame combined with Trinity TX is going to change the way you think about freeriding and boosting.

The new materials combined with an updated design and the Flex Struts make the kite incredibly dynamic; the low weight supercharges the kite's handling and allows it to develop even more power. In light winds, the difference is remarkable, and the larger sizes will offer unrivalled jumping and hangtime, when the wind is at the lower end of the scale. As the wind increases, the jumps get bigger, and the take-off becomes even more impressive.

The acceleration into the air after you release the edge will have you pulling more G's than Yuri Gagarin, and the hangtime will leave you breathless. There are several tuning options on the kite, allowing you to dial in the bar pressure and turning speed to suit your riding style. You can also choose to ride the Rebel SLS in the four or five-line configuration; the fifth line is available as an accessory.

The new materials, lighter weight and incredibly dynamic handling, combine to create one of the most exhilarating rides on the market. As soon as you start flying the Rebel SLS, you will instantly feel the power and performance at your fingertips. All you have to do is load up the edge of the board and get ready to send it to the moon!

SIZES:
6.0 / 7.0 / 8.0 / 9.0 / 10.0 / 11.0 / 12.0 / 13.0 / 14.0 / 15.0

They seem to have made a fair bit of changes to the rebel this year, hopefully the result will be good.

Anyone had the chance to try one and can give their opinion?

For some reason the Rebel SLS only lost ~100g per size (~3.5%), while all other SLS kites lost ~300g (~10%) per size. Wonder why?

Any guesses how they changed the aspect ratio of the kite? Higher?

You obviously haven't listened carefully the claims in the launch video.

PENTA TX... 5 times the strength of dacron and significantly dropping the overall weight by 15%...

Overall weight my a....

Duotone doesn't know how to make lightweight kites. They should learn with Ozone :D

You should ask the marketing department which overall weight they are referring to...

I couldn't find Edge weights, but my guess is those are lighter per size.
