2021 Duotone Juice
FREERIDE / LIGHTWIND / FOIL
The Juice has been a favorite among the light wind warriors for many years now, dubbed the session saver by the pro team, it’s the kite everyone needs in the trunk of their car when they head to the beach. There is nothing worse than arriving at the spot to find you need a few more knots of wind, the Juice puts an end to that, it is almost always windy enough when you have the Juice! Designed for extremely light wind freeriding, the smaller sizes are also optimized for foil kiters. What sets the Juice apart from other large kites out there is the incredible handling, a characteristic produced by its unique shape and profile and also the reduced weight. The Flex Struts really help the kite to respond instantly to rider input, giving the Juice a very active and lively feel, while the unique tip design offers plenty of turning speed. There was a time when large kites were slow, uninspiring and hard to relaunch, the Juice rewrites the rule book giving the rider a dynamic flying experience and a kite that can relaunch in the lightest of breezes. The bar pressure is surprisingly light, and the kite has less drag than before, making it faster through the air and allowing it to generate even more low-end power. When the wind picks up, the Juice has an impressive range, enabling you to stay on the water for longer and jump higher. Don’t just plan to mow the lawn on the light wind days, nail all your tricks with a massive smile on your face and feel the power of the Juice!
Key Features of the Duotone Juice
Reduced Bar Pressure and Less Drag
The bar pressure of the Juice is reduced and it has noticeably less drag, compared to previous models.
Perfect for Light Wind Twintip Riding
Especially the bigger sizes are perfect for light wind days on twintips.
Faster and More Dynamic Turning
The turning of the Juice has been improved. It's now faster and more dynamic, compared to previous models.
Easy Water Relaunch
Simply gently pull on one steering line and the Juice relaunches.
Optimized Construction to Reduce Weight
The new construction in combination with Trinity TX and flex struts helps to save even more weight.
Four or Five-line Set Up
The Juice can be used as a four or five-line set up.
Tech Features of the 2021 Duotone Juice
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.
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.
Flex Strut Juice
The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of 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.
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.
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.
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.
