Duotone Kites

Rebel
High-Performance Freeride / Big Air

The Rebel is the all-time classic freeride kite, legendary performance, significant air superiority and hang time. Last year the Rebel had a significant overhaul that saw the design built around a 4 line set up. The kite was a huge success and this year Ken Winner has been working hard to make the best even better!

Updates on the 2019 model include a smaller, reduced diameter leading edge and a flatter centre shape profile. The goal was to improve the handling and boosting capabilities of the kite. The thinner leading edge makes the new Rebel more efficient, but also allows it to twist, increasing the turning speed and making the handling very dynamic. The new flatter profile in the centre of the kite adds power and improves the flying characteristics. More importantly, the kite now jumps higher and floats for longer; massive airs are even easier on the new Rebel!

The kite can be flown in the standard 4 line set up, or if you wish, there is a 5th line upgrade available too. The Rebel works perfectly with the Click Bar in either 4 or 5 line configuration. As ever the wind range is enormous, there is plenty of low-end power, and the high-end is incredible with the 5-strut design keeping the canopy stable even in gusty conditions. Sheet and go handling makes the Rebel incredibly easy to fly, it’s suitable for riders just starting on their kitesurfing journey as well as pro’s who want to boost to the moon and everyone in between.

This iconic kite has long been the freeride standard all other kites try to emulate, now the bar is set even higher, the new 2019 Rebel will blow you away.

Features

  • Reduced Diameter Leading Edge: A thinner leading edge makes the Rebel more efficient, but also allows it to twist, increasing the turning speed and making the handling very dynamic.
  • Flatter Center Shape: A new flatter profile in the centre of the kite adds power and improves the flying characteristics.
  • Powerful Lift and Huge Hangtime: Perfect for freeride performance with powerful explosive lift and huge as well as long hangtime.

Dice
Freestyle / Wave

The Dice is a versatile kite for riders who love to throw down freestyle tricks but also like to party in the waves.

The smaller sizes below 10m increased the structural stiffness, avoiding any twisting and can handle any wind speeds – perfect for breaking height records and extreme loops. The wing tip area was updated last year to allow for a more dynamic turn and improved handling. This will enable you to achieve bigger jumps and gain more control during loops; it also makes the Dice very efficient in the waves. With highly responsive steering the kite feels right at home in cross-onshore conditions where you need to follow the kite down the line. Excellent drifting capabilities mean it is also at home in cross-offshore conditions too.

It can be flown as a 4-line or 5-line set up depending on your style or preference, and there are tuning options to tweak the handling too. The hard setting now has a 20mm longer pigtail, making it the perfect set up for Freestyle/Wakestyle moves, offering massive slack. Delivering outstanding pop and release for incredible freestyle performance and dynamic handling for wave riding prowess, roll the Dice, and you’ll get a winning combination.

Wam
Pure Surf
It’s difficult to create a board that can perform right across the wave spectrum, ask anyone who’s ridden a Wam though and they will tell you this board cracks it.

A slightly fuller outline was added to a traditional shape to make the Wam a little more compact than most surfboards. The squash tail and optimised volume accentuate this, and these features are the key to its success. They also combine to make the Wam fantastic in light winds and smaller waves enabling the board to float through lulls and weaker sections. The impressive top end speed allows it to excel in fast hollow waves too. Built using the robust vacuum Bamboo Tec Construction the Wam is also very durable.

It’s a fantastic all-rounder and the perfect one board quiver for the rider who wants a board that can handle everything.

Features

  • Best all-rounder: The classic surf shape in the guarantee for a great all-rounder.
  • Excellent balance of grip and explosive snaps off the top.
  • Speed in combination with absolute control is the magic combination.
  • Vacuum Bamboo Tec Construction: A classic construction combining the best elements of flex and feel in a durable construction.
  • Concave Deck with Grab Rail: To optimise volume distribution to aid control and a subtle grab rail for strapless tricks.
  • Cork Shock Absorber 2.0: This is applied as a damper in the heel area of the board to avoid heel dents.

Pro Whip CSC
Small to Medium Waves / Strapless Freestyle

The 2019 Pro Whip CSC features a subtle winger in the outline behind the front fins, which reduces the tail area slightly.

This prevents the tail lifting out during high-speed turns and also allows for tighter snaps and more precise and controlled rail and fin release. The deep twin channel running from the nose to the tail gives the Whip incredible directional stability and a very balanced and controlled feel while still allowing for maximum manoeuvrability. The result is a modern board with remarkable control, balance, speed and the ability to carve smooth arcs and radical top to bottom vertical snaps. The Pro Whip also features a double concave deck shape, optimised volume distribution to aid control and a subtle grab rail for strapless tricks.

The Pro Whip utilises our Light Team Construction and is the ultimate weapon when you want to shred small to medium sized waves.

Features

  • CSC Design: Compact shape concept delivers direct feedback and impressive rail grip.
  • Perfect for tight snaps and smooth carves.
  • Speed in combination with absolute control is the magic combination.
  • Light Team Construction: A very light, still robust construction with a lot of feedback for the rider.
  • Cork Shock Absorber 2.0: This is applied as a damper in the heel area of the board to avoid heel dents.
  • Vacuum Epoxy Custom: The best mix for the purest surf feel, but still robust and durable enough to take the impacts a surfboard gets!

Pro Voke CSC
Pure Strapless Freestyle

Nugget CSC
Light Wind / Small Waves
