2020 Duotone TS Hadlow Textreme Kiteboard
Arriving end of September!!
What Duotone has to say about the TS Hadlow Textreme:
New for 2020 the champion of champions board just got even better with high-end Textreme Innegra carbon offering the pinnacle of performance!
The relationship Duotone has with the 5 times world champion and undisputed king of kiteboarding is a long one. Since joining the team, Aaron has worked with the designers to create the ultimate board for his unique style of riding. Powerful, stylish and big are three words that sum up how Hadlow rides, and the all-new TS Hadlow Textreme is built to compliment that perfectly. For 2020 a new construction technique has been used laminating Textreme Innegra carbon into the board along with Biax carbon to produce controllable explosive pop. The Hadlow also uses the latest Suspension Flex Cap top shape, which significantly reduces reverse flex on landing. The deep channels in the tips offer superior grip, and the Single Diffusor Bottom shape helps to smooth out those harsh impacts. If you want to take the Hadlow to the park, the Grindbase ensures durability and of course this board is best suited to boots. The king of kitesurfing just got his board supercharged, and now it’s ready to rock your world!
- CONTROLLED SOFT LANDINGS - PERFECT CONTROL AND COMFORT EVEN AT THE HARDEST LANDINGS.
- MINIMUM REVERSE FLEX - THE MINIMUM REVERSE FLEX ENSURES LANDINGS WITH ABSOLUTE CONTROL, WITHOUT BENDING IN NEGATIVE DIRECTION.
- GREAT POP AND RESPONSIVE FEEL - EXPLOSIVE POP WITH TOTAL CONTROL, PERFECT FOR WAKESTYLE, FREESTYLE AND PARK RIDING.
- HARD FLEX - THE MOST AGGRESSIVE FLEX AND AN INCREDIBLE POP. HARD FLEX GENERATES DYNAMIC POWER DEVELOPMENT WHEN JUMPING AND MORE STIFFNESS FOR BETTER CONTROL ON HARD LANDINGS.
- SINGLE DIFFUSOR BOTTOM WITH GRIND BASE - THE GUARANTEE FOR MASSIVE POP AND ABSOLUTE CONTROLLED LANDINGS. THE SINGLE DIFFUSOR BOTTOM IS ABLE TO DELIVER MASSIVE GRIP AND IS OFFERING A ROBUST GRIND BASE FOR EVEN MORE DURABILITY.
The mix of Carbon and Innegra makes the construction of the Duotone Team Series Textreme and the Team Series Hadlow Textreme absolutely unique. Innegra itself is a high performance fiber used in composite and textile applications which can be converted into many different reinforcements in Twintip design, offering smooth dampening and enhanced breaking resistance. Combined with carbon you get a lightweight but durable board offering incredible pop and precise feedback. This material combination produces Freestyle and Wakestyle purebreds, that feel just at home at your local spot, or in a heat on the GKA Freestyle Tour.
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.
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.
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!
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 DIFFUSOR 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.
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 under-powered 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.
