As every year, we have put together a large pool of current DUOTONE equipment for you. Whether beginner, intermediate or advanced, everyone will find the right setup. Every kite is different. Even small changes to the profile of a kite change its flying characteristics enormously. Therefore there are big differences between the different kite models. In order to choose the kite that best suits your riding style, there are a few things to consider:
Freeride kites are for riders who only perform hooked-in jumps, i.e. they do boosts or “old-school” tricks. Freeride kites are also great for riders who just want to cruise a bit then try out a manoeuvre or a couple of jumps every so often.

FREESTYLE KITES are mostly used for unhooked jumps or hooked kite loops.
Unhooked means you release the chicken loop from the harness before the jump, which is then executed without the help of the kite simply by edging the board. Unhooked jumps are usually done in wakestyle and are often combined with multiple rotations, e.g. handlepasses. For unhooked tricks the kite needs to have good pop and slack.
