FREERIDE / FREESTYLE / WAVE

 

The Duotone Evo was our most popular selling kite in 2019 and 2020.  The Evo 2021 continues with the same improvements delivering all you need from an all round kite.

Just looking out at our beach highlights how popular this kite has become, with every other rider either on one of these or the latest Duotone Dice. Where just a few years ago the F One Bandit was the number one choice among our instructors and staff, the Duotone range has easily surpassed all the other brands and for good reason.

Following on from the designs of the Duotone Dice, the Evo now has a completely pulley free bridle for ultimate feedback from the kite and better predictability. The fixed bridle has led to a more compact leading edge design which allows it to harness more energy for higher jumps but it’s more noticeable during kiteloops as the kite doesn’t deform or twist at all. This really is a complete game changer and the more we used the kites throughout the 2020 season, the more this became apparent.

It’s even more apparent when the kites are underpowered as they’re so much more efficient than even just a year or two ago. We never thought we’d see a kite coming out of a kiteloop in as little as 18 – 20 knots of wind to catch the rider comfortably before they hit the water.

The Duotone Evo 2021 isn’t just aimed at better riders though as it’s also the favourite among our students who have just finished lessons and are looking to purchase their own kit; We can use this to teach beginners on for their first lessons as it’s so forgiving but it’s the ultimate kite to purchase as it give so much to grow into – you’ll never need to replace it.

The Duotone Evo really is the one kite that does everything well.

The Ultimate Freeride Kite

We were so pleasantly surprised in testing; the kite climbs out of loops even when underpowered, it’s fast, responsive and drifts well on the waves. There are very few kites than can claim to be at the top of their game across all disciplines, but this is one of them.

Along with the rest of the Duotone 2021 range, the Evo has a re-sculptured the trailing edge and changed the material. The lighter weight material is now not only tighter so it flutters less, but much lighter, so trailing edge has a lot less wear which is usually the most worn part of the kite. We can’t believe it’s taken kite manufacturers almost 20 years to solve this problem, but it looks like they finally have!

The kite has 3 settings on the steering line attachments at the kite to cover all the disciplines and these really are worth playing with as they completely change the way the kite feels and performs.

Where some kites have struggled in the past to accommodate different weights of riders because they all require something slightly different from a product (light riders want it to be fast, responsive and agile in the lower end of the wind range whereas heavier riders need something that is robust, heavily built and supported so as not to flex when a lot of force is put through the kite) the Evo has managed to do well for everyone and anyone. Some of the local riders and our instructors kids use them to a very good standard in all sorts of wind strengths and they weight between 35 – 40 kg, then their parents at 100kg + get just as much performance from the kite.

 

The Duotone equipment is built to the highest spec available. They’re one of a few brands who have their own factory (in Sri Lanka) and have full control over their quality checks. We sell more kites from Duotone than any other brand but get the least warranty issues; which must say something. I guess over 20 years of research, development and kite manufacturing and has it’s perks!

 

We always have these available to demo so come and give them a go for yourself…..

 

Now available in a range of ‘Summer Edition’ colour schemes

 

What Duotone have to say…..

The Duotone Evo 2021 is the best allrounder with an incredible wind range, precise power delivery, amazing stability and responsive handling, making it the choice for any type of conditions or riding style.

For 2021, Duotone have removed the pulleys from the bridle, this has the effect of increasing the responsiveness of the kite while still offering incredible depower.

There is also a new trailing edge design incorporating a wave pattern that drastically reduces flutter and canopy wear in this critical area.

The EVO is a delta-shaped kite designed to offer fantastic upwind performance and huge jumps. It has a dynamic turn that lends itself well to playing in the waves, and the kite is perfect for those riders looking to try their first freestyle moves too. It doesn’t matter what your style is on the water; the EVO is truly capable of handling it all.

The structural stiffness of the smaller sizes has been enhanced, making them rock solid even in gusty and strong winds. Reduced bar pressure makes the kite easy to fly and very forgiving, appealing to a lot of riders across the ability spectrum.

Sheet and go handling further enhances the rider experience, meaning the incredible performance of the EVO is available to everyone. If your riding isn’t confined to a particular discipline and you like to keep your options open for freestyle, big air and waves, then you need the EVOlution!

Evo 4 / 5 Line Control:

The Duotone Evo 2021 can be ridden on 4 or 5 line control bars, uniting new-school and free-ride in one kite. The Evo‘s delta shape offers great sheet and-go riding, excellent wind range and high de-power.

The overall shape helps the Evo turn quickly and predictably while the new bridle geometry stabilizes the arc for a soft, consistent bar feel and extreme back-stall resistance.

The 4-line mode boasts an innovative new safety system and bar-feel prefect for those who prefer soft, easy handling.

In 5-line mode the EVO additionally stabilizes the arc, providing a very direct bar-feel for new-school riding and the ultimate 5th line safety.

Auto re-launch means that you can go for it and never have to worry about re-launchng your kite. Just take your hands off the bar and let the kite do the work for you!

Duotone Evo 202HEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

kite canopy panels

LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the Duotone Evo 2020 kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

2020 Duotone Evo strut

FUSION STRUT

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

2020 Duotone Evo trailing edge

TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL

The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

Duotone self rescue handles

Tech Features

FLEX STRUT EVO SLS

The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.

PENTA TX

Penta TX, the guarantee for a sportier, more precise and crisper feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. It replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron. Penta TX is a quite stiff material, resulting in a high structural stiffness, especially recognizable in strong wind conditions, leading to less deformation of the overall structure of the kite. It’s responsible for a very precise timing when edging, releasing the edge and all steering impulses – the precise and reliable steering of a racing car. Penta TX is used in the leading edge and the center strut.

FREERIDE / FREESTYLE / WAVE

 

The Duotone Evo SLS 2022 is due to be launched in November and we can’t wait to test this out! The 2021 model was the most popular kite on our local beach and a huge hit among our team. The extra lightweight and quick turning really makes a difference in the 8m + sizes and the low end is noticeably improved over the standard model.

We’ve already got our hands on the new Dice SLS 2022 and it’s an entirely different beast to the 2021 or any previous models. The SLS materials allow it to be more aggressive and high performance orientated while being the most stable and forgiving Dice Duotone have ever produced.

Needless to say, we expect the Evo SLS 2022 at least as good.

Duotone Evo SLS 2022 Durability

When the new SLS materials were launched on the 2021 model, there was a lot of concern over the longevity and durability of the kites, but our extensive use of these products over the last 14 months (and it has been extensive!) has proven they are not only durable but most probably the hardest wearing kites on the market and seem to experience much less canopy stretch than we’ve ever had on any previous Duotone / North model or any other brand. The only kites that seem to come close are the Airush range with their load frame technology.

Pre order now to avoid disappointment. The kites will be in very short supply

 

We don’t have any more information yet but here’s the techno blurb about the 2021 model.

Custom Kitesurf Package Deal 2021

Custom Kitesurf Package Deal

We can put together any custom kitesurf package deal with the latest & greatest kit or if you’re trying to keep within a budget, we often have equipment from the previous year(s) which can save a fortune.

PLEASE DON’T PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT, IT IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. 

We always make sure we offer the most competition prices available on any brand of equipment.

We, along with our experienced coaches, will be sure to suggest the most suitable equipment for YOU, rather than what’s in stock and needs selling. Not every kite or board is suitable for each individual, it’s a very personal sport, everyone is different and it’s expensive to make changes in 2 months time because it doesn’t work for you or doesn’t fit properly.

It’s always our suggestion to come in store so you are able to try items on and see them in the flesh, but we realise for some people this isn’t realistic which is why we offer a next day delivery service on most our products and a free returns / exchange policy.

We know kitesurfing can be expensive, which is why we also offer finance over a 12 month period to break down the outlay. The good news is that once you have your custom kitesurf package, there’s very little else to purchase and the sport is very cheap.

If you’ve found a quote elsewhere, we’ll beat it! contact us for full details.

2021 Duotone Evo Kite

The Duotone Evo was our most popular kite in 2020 and it’s been improved on once again. Following on from the designs of the Duotone Dice 2021, the Evo now has a completely pulley free bridle for ultimate feedback from the kite and better predictability.

The fixed bridle has led to a more compact leading edge design which allows it to harness more energy for higher jumps but it’s more noticeable during kiteloops as the kite doesn’t deform or twist at all. This really is a complete game changer.

The Ultimate Freeride Kite

We were so pleasantly surprised in testing; the kite climbs out of loops even when underpowered, it’s fast, responsive and drifts well on the waves. There are very few kites that can claim to be at the top of their game across all disciplines, but this is one of them.

Along with the rest of the Duotone 2020 range, the Evo has a re-sculptured the trailing edge and changed the material. The lighter weight material is now not only tighter so it flutters less, but much lighter, so trailing edge has a lot less wear which is usually the most worn part of the kite. We can’t believe it’s taken kite manufacturers almost 20 years to solve this problem, but it looks like they finally have!

The kite has 3 settings on the steering line attachments at the kite to cover all the disciplines and these really are worth playing with as they completely change the way the kite feels and performs.

 

What Duotone have to say…..

The Duotone Evo 2021 is the best allrounder with an incredible wind range, precise power delivery, amazing stability and responsive handling, making it the choice for any type of conditions or riding style. Perfect choice in this kite package for all riders.

For 2021, Duotone have removed the pulleys from the bridle, this has the effect of increasing the responsiveness of the kite while still offering incredible depower.

There is also a new trailing edge design incorporating a wave pattern that drastically reduces flutter and canopy wear in this critical area.

The EVO is a delta-shaped kite designed to offer fantastic upwind performance and huge jumps. It has a dynamic turn that lends itself well to playing in the waves, and the kite is perfect for those riders looking to try their first freestyle moves too. It doesn’t matter what your style is on the water; the EVO is truly capable of handling it all.

The structural stiffness of the smaller sizes has been enhanced, making them rock solid even in gusty and strong winds. Reduced bar pressure makes the kite easy to fly and very forgiving, appealing to a lot of riders across the ability spectrum.

Sheet and go handling further enhances the rider experience, meaning the incredible performance of the EVO is available to everyone. If your riding isn’t confined to a particular discipline and you like to keep your options open for freestyle, big air and waves, then you need the EVOlution!

Evo 4 / 5 Line Control:

The Duotone Evo 2021 can be ridden on 4 or 5 line control bars, uniting new-school and free-ride in one kite. The Evo‘s delta shape offers great sheet and-go riding, excellent wind range and high de-power.

The overall shape helps the Evo turn quickly and predictably while the new bridle geometry stabilizes the arc for a soft, consistent bar feel and extreme back-stall resistance.

The 4-line mode boasts an innovative new safety system and bar-feel prefect for those who prefer soft, easy handling.

In 5-line mode the EVO additionally stabilizes the arc, providing a very direct bar-feel for new-school riding and the ultimate 5th line safety.

Auto re-launch means that you can go for it and never have to worry about re-launchng your kite. Just take your hands off the bar and let the kite do the work for you!

Best Allround of the Duotone Range:
An easy jumper with massive sheet-and-go qualities, offering huge depower, powerful lift and a massive hangtime. It’s the most accessible kite for all type of riders.

Delta Kite:
The most comfortable design with a very smooth kite profile. Upwind ability is unmatched and steering performance is very forgiving.

Easy Water Relaunch:
The relaunch is very fast and easy, thanks to the Delta design the kite doesn’t stick to the water.

Three Strut Design:
A lighter kite boosts agility and increases responsiveness. Turning is fast and the feeling at the bar is very predictable and responsive.

The best and most successful all-rounder in the Duotone range just got better! On top of the Evo, we proudly introduce the high-performance Duotone Evo SLS 2021 – An experience of flying a kite like never before! SLS incorporates new materials and technologies across the Duotone range to create an even better performing product.

Meet the Evo SLS, a kite for the experienced, ambitious and enthusiastic kiter, who will be surprised by its flying and handling characteristics. The new benchmark in performance and handling. SLS stands for Strong Light Superior, it’s the quest for perfection, and it incorporates new technologies, construction materials and techniques everywhere you see the SLS logo.

Evo SLS kite package – What is included:

The Evo SLS sets a new standard for versatility, it’s perfect for boosting huge airs, riding waves and tricking out some freestyle moves. If you just want to cruise then don’t worry, it’s ideal for that and also works really well for foiling! The R&D Team was constantly surprised the Evo SLS would never fall out of the sky, even when the foil kites were down already. The Evo SLS is the ultimate one kite does it all concept.

SLS Construction

The new construction for 2021 replaces the Dacron with Penta TX. Significantly reducing the weight of the kite by 15% while making it five times more durable. This supercharges the handling, increases the wind range and turns the Evo SLS into an experience you have never felt before with a kite. The new materials and construction make the kite much stiffer. Resulting in a very agile and precise overall handling, while the reduced weight improves the low-end. The new Flex Struts allow the kite to twist like never before when you engage the bar. This results in lightning-fast handling that is guaranteed to excite you.

No matter what you decide to do with the Evo SLS, you’ll be blown away by the performance! It’s changing the way we think about kiteboarding. It allows you to get on the water earlier, stay out for longer and have control at your fingertips that other kites can only dream of. Maximise your ride, go all out with the new Evo SLS and connect with your kite in a way you could have only imagined before.

Tech Features

FLEX STRUT EVO SLS

The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.

PENTA TX

Penta TX, the guarantee for a sportier, more precise and crisper feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. It replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron. Penta TX is a quite stiff material, resulting in a high structural stiffness, especially recognizable in strong wind conditions, leading to less deformation of the overall structure of the kite. It’s responsible for a very precise timing when edging, releasing the edge and all steering impulses – the precise and reliable steering of a racing car. Penta TX is used in the leading edge and the center strut.

2020 Duotone Evo

MODERN TRAILING EDGE DESIGN

A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

Duotone Evo 202HEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

kite canopy panels

LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the Duotone Evo 2020 kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

2020 Duotone Evo strut

FUSION STRUT

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

2020 Duotone Evo trailing edge

TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL

The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

Duotone self rescue handles

SELF RESCUE HANDLES

The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

Duotone Evo wingtip

ANTI SNAG

The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

 

double v bridles

DOUBLE-V PIGTAILS

These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the Duotone Evo 2020 kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.

KOOK PROOF CONNECTORS

The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE / BIG AIR

 

The best freeride kite on the market is back, and it’s ready to redefine the boundaries of hangtime and kiteboarding as you know it.

The Rebel is a kite that has defined a generation of riders; it’s the best freeride kite on the market and the perfect tool to help you improve your riding. More than that though the Rebel was made for flying, no other kite in the Duotone range offers as much hangtime and float when you are jumping. Load up the edge and sheet in on take-off for an experience like no other.

This year, Flex Struts have been incorporated into the design; these allow the kite to twist when you input steering response through the bar. This has made the Duotone Rebel 2021 much faster through the turn and more dynamic than in previous years. The kite feels sportier, more like a race car, finely tuned and ready for action. The wind range on the Rebel is outstanding, the five-strut design keeps the shape stable in the air, so at the top end there is almost no limit, the jumps just get bigger, and the hangtime lasts longer. With several trim options on the bar, the Rebel is also very versatile, you can set the kite up for the conditions of the day and how you want it to fly. A familiar Sheet and Go feeling through the bar makes it a great kite for beginners and riders wanting to improve the way they ride.

From your very first jumps to the biggest airs you could possibly imagine; the Rebel is the perfect partner every step of the way. Get ready for take-off and experience flying in a way you can only get with the Duotone Rebel 2021!

HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE / BIG AIR

 

The all-new Duotone Rebel SLS for 2022 gets the Stronger Lighter Superior treatment to create the best big air and high performance freeride kite we have ever made.

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. 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. The acceleration into the air after you release the edge will have you pulling more G’s than Yuri Gagarin. But 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!

Our thoughts on the Duotone Rebel SLS

We’re excited by this new big air machine! The Rebel has always been one of our favourite kites for high winds and foiling. It’s fast through the air, efficient and high aspect with loads of lift. It has been the benchmark for some time in terms of getting up high and with the SLS material making it lighter, it loops better and cuts through the sky quicker. The difference is really noticeable between this and the standard construction model (2021 only) This is a high wind weapon!

 

Duotone Rebel SLS Key Features

  • Big, vertical power spike for stunning jumping abilities and endless hangtime
  • Fast and absolute depower
  • Agile movement through the window, so better more instantaneous power
  • Quick on the upstroke, so breathtaking power
  • Good drift and long hangtime in light wind
  • Four or five line set up (5th line not included)

The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.

FUSION STRUT

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

TRINITY TX

Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3×2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.

The 3×2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2×2 or 4×4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.

LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

MODERN TRAILING EDGE DESIGN

A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL

The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

DOUBLE-V PIGTAILS

These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.

KOOK PROOF CONNECTORS

The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

Duotone Echo Surf Wing 2020

Duotone Echo 2020

The 2020 Echo Wing comes without a Foil Boom and Wrist Leash!

But you can add them in the selection panel.

The 2020 Duotone Echo Surf Wing is a wing for powered riding in all conditions, perfect for freeriding, waves, light wind and freestyle! The perfect wing for even the very first days on the water.

The 2020 Echo wing is the evolution of the first Duotone foil wing, which took the market by storm last year. The dynamic concept featured a boom, window and battens offering a superior experience. Now, the design team have worked hard to enhance your feelings on the water and above it!

A huge advantage of the Duotone Echo surf wing compared to softer wings, is its super stiff profile, achieved by the boom, battens and the new draft control rope. This unique invention causes a stabilization of the profile, by taking advantage of the ridge boom structure and results in a consistent load distribution and a continuous performance. Especially in lightwind, the stiff profile, the battens and the draft control rope, make it easy to actively get going, even in the slightest breeze. All sizes have incredible low end, especially size 6 and 7 get you going in the slightest breeze. The leading edge has been stiffened to create a more rigid framework; this improves the wings jumping abilities, but also offers more control at speed and in powered conditions. Canopy tension has been increased, and the trailing edge/leech tension has been tuned as well.

These improvements help airflow and reduce drag, giving the Echo wing a better wind range and making it more stable when riding waves. The new boom utilises an oval grip, making it more comfortable in the hands, hand positioning happens naturally and intuitive, keeping you in control at all time. The leading edge bladder has been reinforced to make it even more durable, and finally, there are now six sizes in the range!

If you want the highest performing, most technologically advanced wing on the market, grab the 2020 Duotone Echo, nothing else comes close.

WING SPAN

Shorter wing span plays a major role for the Slicks efficiency. The shorter span doesn’t only leave more room for maneuvers and wing rotations, the Slick can also be held more upright during flight and while pumping up onto the foil. This makes this wing catch the wind more efficiently and ultimately lets you pump onto the foil and fly with a smaller wing.
