Duotone Juice D/Lab – FREERIDE / LIGHTWIND / FOIL
What happens when you throw convention out the window and embrace the future of kite technology and innovation? D/LAB is precisely that, the pinnacle of everything that is done here at Duotone. The Juice D/LAB is part of a new range of high-end products to come out of the Duotone laboratory. Using a new version of Aluula, we have ironed out the issues experienced by other brands to bring a kite to the market that sets a whole new standard. The new fabric in combination with new construction features reduces the weight of the kite by up to 30% compared to standard constructions and depending on the size, which is a considerable saving of up to 1kg, especially when the wind is light. Elsewhere the construction has been fine-tuned to reduce weight wherever possible, while innovative use of material weaves allows improved turning ability and response.
The Juice D/LAB isn’t just a lighter version of the Juice; the handling and performance are significantly improved, allowing you to get riding earlier and have more fun on the water. The kite generates enormous amounts of power with real acceleration on the up and the downstrokes, even in the lightest airs, making foiling in nearly no wind a never experienced adventure. The reduced weight and improved handling make it an exciting kite to fly, and you will be boosting higher and flying for longer than anyone else on the beach. It’s quite simply the best light wind kite we can make right now; D/LAB will set a new standard in the kite industry, and you can be the first to experience it. Get the Juice D/LAB now and never miss a session again; make every hour on the water count and enjoy the very pinnacle of kite technology!

ALUULA FRAME CONSTRUCTION JUICE D/LAB
The new fabric in combination with new construction features reduces the weight of the kite by up to 30% compared to standard constructions and depending on the size, which is a considerable saving of up to 1kg, especially when the wind is light.

MODERN TRAILING EDGE DESIGN
A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.
HEAVY 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.
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.
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.
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.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
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.
