2023 Duotone Vegas
FREESTYLE / WAKESTYLE
Dial the kite into the way you want to ride for the day, set it for unhooked with maximum power delay, or for loops with maximum power. The Vegas has a trophy cabinet that's buckling under the weight of the silverware. The choice of champions such as Mikaili Sol and Gianmaria Coccoluto, and progressive legends like Aaron Hadlow. Designed to perform at the very highest level for the most demanding riders looking for the ultimate in freestyle performance. The key to the kite's continued success is the power delay the kite delivers after take-off. As well as providing explosive pop, the kite lines go slack after you release the edge. This allows you to perform the latest tricks with ease and the only thing holding you back is your imagination. There is no better-performing kite on the market for unhooked riding; with the loaded 5th line and pure C kite shape, this is a thoroughbred waiting to be tamed. Sometimes the wind is strong, and freestyle fades with thoughts of big air and powerful loops; the Vegas has this in its DNA and gives you an exciting ride with plenty of control and power in abundance. Pull the trigger, send the kite, hang on, or park the kite, load, edge, and pop; the choice is yours; defy gravity however you choose to ride the Vegas!
Amazing Unhooked Performance
The kite's handling has been tuned to perfection, allowing you to unhook, pop and throw the latest moves without worrying about the kite. Concentrate on your ticks, not on flying the kite.
With Big Air becoming such an integral part of our sport, the Vegas is capable of delivering powerful loops and big jumps to allow you to mix up your riding and send it with the crew on the windy days.
Responsive Power Delay
The Vegas has an intuitive power delay that engages after your pop for your trick, the lines go slack, and you can easily perform multiple rotations.
This helps reduce the overall weight of the kite and improves performance using materials like Trinity TX, making the kite light while offering excellent durability.
Pure C Kite Design
The freestyle performance of C kites is unrolled; rather that make a hybrid style kite to cater for the masses, the Vegas is unashamedly a C kite through and through.
The Vegas is offering two set ups, so you can trim the kites to your needs, either more in competition wakestyle direction or freeriding and mega loops.
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.
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.
Modern Trailing Edge Design
A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.
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.
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.
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.
