The best performance all-rounder in the Duotone line up! The Evo SLS is exceedingly capable as a freeride, big air, hooked freestyle, and with the SLS construction, delivers an unparalleled dynamic flying experience.
Easy to access, high-performance no matter your riding style, great for big air, freeride, hooked freestyle and playing in the waves.Aggressive Lift
The Evo SLS delivers incredible take off speeds, lift, and floaty hangtime thanks to the rigid frame and direct and dynamic steering.Improved Low End
The new Flex Strut design helps the kite turn and climb faster than ever before, vastly improving the low-end range.SLS Construction
The SLS construction helps reduce the overall weight of the kite. In addition, high performance materials, such as the Penta TX frame and Trinity TX canopy, make the kite up to 15% lighter compared to regular models, while offering excellent durability.Pulley Less Bridle System
The pulley-less bridle system offers a more dynamic and direct feel to the kite and a longer-lasting and more durable bridle for harsh use.Multiple Tip Tuning Options
Tune the kite to your riding style, increase the turning speed or slow it down, increase or decrease the bar pressure, and fly the kite how you want to fly it.
If you want the ultimate in performance across the widest range of disciplines, the all-new Evo SLS is the kite you need in your quiver. Built using the SLS construction and materials, including the incredibly lightweight and durable Penta TX, combined with Trinity TX to shave up to 15% of the kite’s weight compared to regular models. It’s not just about making the kite light, though; the construction also makes the kite stiffer, which improves the flying characteristics in every area. You get more pop, and better take offs along with huge hangtime. The handling is incredibly dynamic, helped by the new Flex Struts, allowing the kite to twist resulting in significantly faster and tighter turns. The pulley less bridle means less maintenance and better handling, especially when throwing kite loops. Total control is right at your fingertips at every stage of every trick as the kite becomes an extension of your body. The weapon of choice for riders looking for a high-performance versatile kite, the Evo SLS performs no matter your riding style. Big air, freeride, hooked freestyle and wave riding are all a dream with the new Evo SLS, except this is a perfect dream that you can revisit every time you hit the water!
Penta TX, the guarantee for a sportier, more precise and crisper feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. Penta TX replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron. Penta TX is a quite stiff material, resulting in a high structural stiffness, especially recognizable in strong wind conditions, leading to less deformation of the overall structure of the kite. It's responsible for a very precise timing when edging, releasing the edge and all steering impulses - the precise and reliable steering of a racing car. Penta TX is used in the leading edge and the center strut.
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.
Modern Trailing Edge Design
A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.
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.
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.
Flex Strut Evo SLS
The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
