Duotone Evo + Select 2023 Kitesurf Set
Super all-round kitesurf set from Duotone
The Duotone Evo kite in combination with the Duotone Select kiteboard is an awesome kitesurf set for beginners to advanced. Compared to the other Evo set with Gonzales, this set with the Select kiteboard is slightly more focused on all-round progression than 100% beginner. That's because this set includes the performance freeride board, the Select 2023. The Select is lighter than the Gonzales, has small channels in the tips for extra grip at high speed and with pop.
The Duotone Evo 2023 is a super comfortable, predictable kite for beginners to advanced level. High walking, jumping, and hooked freestyle tricks are no problem for the Evo. And with an effortless relaunch, you'll never be in the water for long. The 2023 Trust bar is included with the Evo in this set (including leash).

Going upwind is also no problem with the Duotone Evo 2023, so you quickly gain the confidence to push your level!

Features Duotone Evo 2023
Duotone Select 2023 Kiteboard
High-quality freeride kiteboard with progressive construction from DuotoneThe Duotone Select 2023 is the freeride kiteboard from Duotone. The Select has speed, feels direct and pops controlled, giving the kiteboard the perfect ingredients for progression. The Duotone Select feels familiar underfoot after the first session, so you can get the most out of your session. The kiteboard is perfect for the novice, but also certainly the advanced kitesurfer. We noticed that the Select rides effortlessly upwind, combined with the comfort that the Select entails, these properties make the kiteboard ideal for the beginning kitesurfer. In addition, the Select still feels sporty and playful, even in thick chop! Popping is effortless and you will feel that the kiteboard wants to do back rolls and front rolls. New for 2023 is the outline of the Select. The Select has been given a new outline to get more comfort out of the Select. In addition, the new outline landings are a lot more comfortable and the low-end of the Select SLS has been improved. Due to the new shape, it is important to choose a slightly longer Select. If you rode a 138/41 last year, you will love this year's 141/41!
The Duotone Select 2023 has a premium construction. The kiteboard is equipped with a so-called Carbon Beam, where instead of fiberglass, unidirectional carbon beams are used to get an even faster and progressive flex that results in better pop and less weight. In the Duotone Select, torsion in the longitudinal direction of the kiteboard is possible, giving you more grip on the heel-side, smooth landings and better upwind performance. The Duotone Select has a fairly flat rocker line, so you can easily get up to speed and plan early. The soft flex in the kiteboard ensures that the Select is a friendly and 'easy to use' kiteboard, making the kiteboard fun to ride for every level. Space Flex technology is used in both tips. These tips adapt to the surface of the water and ensure that you can carve wonderfully.
Do you want that extra bit of performance in your kiteboard, so that you don't just get bored with it? The Duotone Select has everything to keep your session challenging to keep pushing your kitesurfing level!

Duotone Trust Bar 2023
Fully redesigned Duotone Trust bar with Click-In safetyThe Duotone Trust Bar 2023 may be the little brother of the Click bar, but despite that it is still one of the better kitesurf bars on the market. This year the Duotone Trust bar 2023 has had a lot of new upgrades to improve the safety, ease of use and lifespan of the Trust bar 2023.
Of course, the new Iron Heart VI Click-In system immediately catches the eye. With this new safety system from Duotone you can easily click your chickenloop back into the QR system after release. As an extra safety check, Duotone has made an indicator on the QR that turns green when the chickenloop has been put back into the QR correctly.
The new 2023 Trust bar, like the Click Bar, will have a V-Distributor to easily adjust the height of the V-split. By adding V-Distributor you can now also ride the Trust bar 2023 on all other kites from other brands with a low split of the power lines. Also new on the 2023 Trust bar from Duotone is the Vario Cleat (which is still adjustable in height). The new cleat has a hook with which you can attach the end of the depower line to the cleat system. This means you no longer have an annoying dangling rope when you ride depowered.
The material of the depower and safety line are made of a new, more wear-resistant material. The new line is designed by Robline exclusively for Duotone from a new, super durable, high quality material with super smooth Dyneema sleeve so that the bar glides very easily over the lines, resulting in minimal wear. We see a lot of the double kitelooping pros kitesurfers with this new 2023 Trust bar because of the easy slide of the bar.From 2023, the Duotone Trust bar will only be available in one size: S/M. The S/M Trust bar is super easy to adjust in width from 42cm to 49 by means of the new Flip Flop Floaters. Just like last year, the new 2023 Trust bar also has the super stiff FLITE99 lines from Duotone.
Duotone Vario Combo 2023 Pads & Straps
Comfortable and user-friendly bindings from DuotoneThe Duotone Vario Combo 2023 Pads & Straps is not to be missed in the Duotone 2023 collection. The bindings are very comfortable and structured for a comfortable ride. The pad is ergonomically shaped, so that bumpy conditions are absorbed as much as possible during the ride. In addition, the inside feels comfortable on the bare feet. The anti-slip ensures that the binding goes on and off when you want it, so that you can ride upwind with a fully powered kite at speed and when there is room you can show the highest board offs. The straps are easy to adjust by means of a Velcro closure, so the bindings are always tight enough. The advanced track system ensures that the bindings can be easily mounted on the kiteboard and are in the perfect stance, for maximum performance.
The Vario Combo 2023 Pads & Straps fit all Duotone kiteboards from 2023 and previous years. The bindings are available in two sizes, XS/33-36 and SL/36-47 EU.
