If you want to dominate the waves and rule the skies, the Duotone Neo 2023 is the kite for you!
Duotone Neo 2023
Duotone Neo 2023 is the ultimate wave-riding machine in the line up. The Neo is the benchmark in kiteboarding in waves, with incredible drift. Total control at all times and the ability to perform to podium levels in the waves and for strapless freestyle. For years the Neo has been the wave kite against which all the others are measured. The unique combination of power, control and drifting characteristics have made it the wave kite everyone wants to ride.
As strapless freestyle has evolved as a discipline, the kite has developed too. There are the tuning options, soft medium and hard, allowing you to set the kite up for the day’s conditions and your personal preferences. In the hard mode, the kite delivers a powerful loop that is easy to control. The soft mode enhances the turning speed and the drifting capabilities. The legendary drift has made the kite incredibly successful in the waves. This, combined with unrivalled steering response, enables the kite to perform in both offshore and onshore conditions. Designer Ken Winner has spent years developing these characteristics, always striving for perfection. The kite’s weight has been optimized to increase performance and the kite reacts instantly to input from the bar. The result is a kite that feels like an extension of your body on the wave.
The wind range is huge with lots of low-end power. It allows you to ride a smaller kite, while at the top end, the kite still offers lots of control. If you want to dominate the waves with total confidence and rule skies, the Duotone Neo 2023 is the kite for you! Tune it to your riding style, initiate the launch sequence, and head straight to the top step of any podium!

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. It 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.
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. This 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. This makes 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.
TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite. This forces 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.
