DUOTONE NEO 2020
FANTASTIC DRIFTING ABILITIES
To get the most out of every wave session a kite needs to be exceedingly stable in the air with excellent drift, making it perfect for waveriding.
RESPONSIVE STEERING - POWERED OR DEPOWERED
Whether you're powered or not, with the adaptive tip, kites have a very responsive steering at all time - powered or not.
VERY POWERFUL - BUT WITH GREAT DEPOWER
Always the perfect amount of power which is required during waveriding. Choose at least one size smaller!
Flex SEGMENT LEADING EDGE DESIGN
Special flex segments have been built into the leading edge, allowing the kite to twist even more when turning. This improves the handling capabilities of the neo making it very dynamic.
ADJUSTABLE FRONT BRIDLE
The adjustable fornt bridle offers a freeride tuning setup. Those who want a more solid bar feel and kite feedback, should go for the hard adaptive tip setting.
NEW TRAILING EDGE DESIGN FOR LESS CANOPY WEAR
A narrower trailing edge and a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

The Neo is the choice of our highly decorated wave riding team, Airton Cozzolino, Matchu Lopes, Sebastian Ribeiro, James Carew and Patri McLaughlin - all choose the Neo to compete on the GKA Strapless World Tour. It has won more world titles and events than any other wave kite. With the move towards strapless riding, the Neo now has tuning options for waves and depower or you can set it up for strapless freestyle and freeriding. It’s been one of the most popular kites in the Duotone line up for a long time, and it’s easy to see why. On the wave, it offers dynamic handling and incredible drift when you want to freeride it’s an easy going companion. The kite has a unique profile that develops enormous amounts of power, Neo riders are often on one or even two sizes smaller than everyone else at the beach, this means the kite is even more responsive. While it has enormous amounts of power, the depower is incredible, more than that though, even when fully sheeted out the steering is exceptionally reactive and precise. Whether you are riding a monster at One Eye, pulling a strapless kite loop twenty feet up or just slaying some Euro mush, the Neo puts you in total control at all times. If surfboards are your kite life, you need the Neo in your quiver.
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.
TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
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.
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.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
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.
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.
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.

A quick and easy safety solution. When the quick release is activated, the single front line presents a smaller area of the kite to the wind and makes the kite almost pressureless.
EASY TO USE
Thanks to the iron heart iv, the suicide ring iii and single front line safety, the trust bar is very easy to use.
SUICIDE RING III FOR FIXED SUICIDE MODE
The suicide ring iii allows you to set up a “suicide” mode while keeping the ring and leash up and out of the way of the chicken loop. Quickly hook in and out after freestyle tricks.
COMPATIBLE WITH ANY FOUR-LINE KITE MODEL
The trust bar can be used in combination with almost any other kite on the market.
4 OR 5-LINE SETUP
You can choose the best setup depending on your personal preference and riding style. The 5th line makes relaunch easier, especially for big kites and in low winds.
Available Sizes: L, XL
Duotone has released a very neat pump with which you can easily pump your kite. The Duotone kite pump can be used as a single action and double action. Choose double action to get the largest shared air in your kite, then choose single action to add the last few pumps to make your kite nice and hard. The pump is equipped with a good pressure gauge so that you can see if your kite is hard enough. The pump fits the boston valves like Cabrinha, Slingshot, Naish and valves with twist lock like those of Duotone and North. If you want to pump your kite even faster then look at the larger Kite Pump XL.
