2023 Team Series Freestyle/Wakestyle Kiteboard
The Team Series has some big updates for 2023, the Gambler retires from our range, and we have fused the Team Series of last year and the Gambler to make the ultimate hardcore freestyle/wakestyle board. The Grind Base means you can use this board hard, and the bottom shape has been updated to make it even more durable. For the freestylers, the pop is incredible; the Carbon Web adds dynamism and responsiveness to the board that makes it feel alive. The Suspension Flex Cap also minimises reverse flex on landings, and the Single Diffusor Bottom helps to soften every landing, so when you come in hot, you’ll be sure to stick your trick every time. With loads of grip from the deep tip channels, the board can be ridden with fins for freestyle or without for park riding. The Team Series is the board to have in your quiver if you are into throwing down the latest tricks, and if you want a park board too, look no further!
EXPLOSIVE POP DUE TO CARBON WEB
The Team Series features a carbon wed in the layup; this material adds response to the board and fine-tunes the flex pattern for maximum pop.
MINIMUM REVERSE FLEX DUE TO SUSPENSION FLEX CAP
When landing freestyle tricks, reverse flex can be a real issue; the Team Series minimizes this with its suspension flex cap technology.
SOFT LANDINGS PROVIDED BY THE SINGLE DIFFUSOR BOTTOM
Duotone's unique single diffusor bottom shape helps break the surface tension of the water, making landing smoother, even at high speeds.
MASSIVE GRIP ENSURED DUE TO THE DEEP TIP CHANNELS
You can ride the Team Series with or without fins; the large tip channels provide plenty of grip, making it perfect for the park.
VERY DURABLE THANKS TO THE GRIND BASE
When you hit features, you need a board that can take the abuse; the grind base ensures your board will look fresh for longer.
INLINE SLIDERS AND A BOOT OPTIMIZED STANCE
Inline sliders mean you can flip your board around midseason to even out the wear on the base, and the boot optimized stance ensures a perfect connection to the board.
ABSORPTION FLEX TIPS
Based on a unique new construction of the board in the tip area, the scoop rocker line ensures better response to changing situations. In underpowered riding, the board remains flat for fast planing. In overpowered riding, the scoop bends and provides for an increased level of control and stability. The flex tips absorb shocks and enable soft landings.
SUSPENSION FLEX CAP
The brand new suspension Flex Cap makes it possible to create a very stiff center of the board, whilst keeping a lot of torsional stiffness through a stiff frame at the the tips of the board. Pop and control is guaranteed, whilst energy during landings is absorbed by the board – and not your knees. Additionally it is possible to have a flatter center, resulting in your boots sitting flatter on the board, offering that little extra bit of even more control. But the main and most important news is: reverse flex during landings is nearly eliminated.
The special shape of the 3D cap allows torsion of the long axis of the board. This gives them more grip on the heel-side edge, rich and smooth landings, a direct drive and better upwind performance. Invented by Duotone.
PREMIUM PERFORMANCE CONSTRUCTION
The most sophisticated construction in the line is developed especially for the TS Hadlow and the Team Series boards. It’s the most durable construction in the line, showing the peak of board development. A 45 degrees bi carbon layer under the foot pad area ensures a very smooth but comfortable flex and also provides the board with maximum durability. This construction is developed for competition oriented riders by the best riders of the world, focusing on massive grip and pop – even without fins!
The use of Carbon Web is an important improvement for 2020 especially for competition boards like the Duotone Team Series and the Duotone Jaime. It offers the rider more torsional stiffness, therefore offering good pop and very precise edge control. Carbon Web is used to build light, yet very robust and durable boards, without losing any of the dynamic response needed for Freestyle and Wakestyle maneuvers. A great compromise for Freestyle boards at a lower price point, without compromising performance!
STEP DOUBLE CONCAVE WIDE CHANNEL
The Step Double Concave is the reason the Team Series is able to deliver massive grip – with or without fins, to meet the expectations of team riders competing in the World Tour, as well as ambitious freestylers. The deep concaves provide massive grip and pop.
SINGLE DIFFUSER BOTTOM
The brand new Single Diffusor bottom, is supporting the riding style in boots, offering loads of grip combined with smooth, fast, but controlled landings. For smooth landings, the center concave pushes water directly into the tip channel.
The Hard Flex option features the most aggressive flex and pop in our range. Boards with Hard Flex have more dynamic power development when jumping, more stiffness for better control on ultra-hard landings and a unique pop to always be one step ahead of your competitors.
