We’ve been privileged enough to have checked out all the 2019 Rebel, Dice, Neo, the range of twin tips and Surfboards, Bars and more.
The kites look fantastic and lead on from the amazing 2018 North kiteboarding line up, the 2019 Rebel is designed to sit closer to the edge of the window for an easier more powerful vertical lift during large jumps and more efficient upwind riding. The bridle has also been reconfigured to create a larger flatter surface for higher jumps per size of kite! We get the 13m Rebel 2019 on release day and will be testing it as soon as the wind blows!
As a reminder for anyone who missed it, this is essentially the 2019 North kiteboarding line up, Duotone Kiteboarding is the new brand name which the company has taken on. The brand name North kiteboarding used to be licensed by the team that created all these kites and all the North kiteboarding gear you’ve known and loved, but there were irreconcilable issues with re licensing this brand name so the team picked a new name. The same team will be creating, producing, testing and riding the gear that has always done before, just under the flag of Duotone kiteboarding now instead.
So once that shell shock has passed, which it well and truely has for us, go grab your new kite this year and tear up the waves! There’s some really exciting gear on the line up this year which
