2022 Duotone Evo
FREERIDE / FREESTYLE / WAVE
Sometimes you don't want your kite to define your riding, and we all want an easy ride to fast track our progression within the sport. The Evo is that kite, and more. Duotone's design team wanted to create not only the most user-friendly kite on the market, with performance that is easy to unlock, but also the most versatile kite they could. The result is intoxicating, no matter your level or the style of riding you prefer. For freeriding, you easily have to have access to enjoyment for every level of rider, the jumps are easy to dial in, and there is enough hang time to delight the most discerning of riders. The kite has a "sheet and go" nature that makes it easy to control and gives the rider plenty of confidence on the water. This is the kite that will help you progress quickly while not holding you back as your riding improves. The dynamic nature allows you to control the arc; as you engage the bar more, the turning speed increases. This attribute lends the kite to a bit of wave riding and will allow you to explore challenging conditions with ease. If your riding heads down a freestyle path, the Evo has you covered, it is perfect for those first forays into unhooked riding, and you'll find yourself landing raleys faster than you could imagine. The kite is also excellent for a range of abilities; starters will enjoy the forgiving easy to use nature, while more advanced riders will enjoy the enormous hooked boosting capabilities and even pulling kite loops too, if you have the guts. If ever there was a kite that wasn't defined by a discipline or a rider's style, the Evo is it. However, you choose to play on the water, whatever your level, the Evo is the kite that can take you to the next level.

Tech Features of the Evo
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 3x2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.
The 3x2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2x2 or 4x4 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.
- 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.
- Double-V Pigtails
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.
- Fusion Strut
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.
- 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.
- 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 maneuver.
- Anti Snag
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
