Duotone Kiteboarding Newsletter - Juice 2019

Recommended Posts

forums_20190321_01.jpg

 

The 2019 JUICE represents state of the art design, very light specifically sourced material, and optimized light wind performance. It’s very balanced, user friendly and especially made for lightwind kiteboarding on Twintips, Directionals and Foil boards, to maximize the time on the water.

 

This season the Duotone JUICE is a completely new light wind concept. From now on, any Foiler or Freerider will only need one size of the JUICE in their quiver. With each size working in almost the same wind range, the only deciding factor comes down to which kind of rider and on what kind of board.

 

Introducing the ultimate low-wind, inflatable kite for riders who value performance and handling in the lightest of breezes. No wind, no worries.

 

 

 

A lighter, stiffer Dacron Frame and inflatable sections, combined with a thinner, lighter PU bladder foil creates a clean and stiff canopy for a responsive ride.

 

By reducing the overall weight of the Leading Edge, the general load is shifted back to the Framing Edge resulting in better balance.

 

The Fusion Strut construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between the 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.

“In order to create the ultimate light wind construction for light wind conditions you have to look at the materials you’re using. I spent quite a lot of time sourcing the best materials possible and a full season testing them. We needed to ensure the combination of lightness, durability, premium quality and long lifespan. Having achieved a lighter weight, the handling and response became better automatically. Then we fine tuned.” Ralf Grösel.

RIDER REVIEW

Artem Garashchenko is all about shredding the powder in the mountains and styling it out on the water. His winning formula? The JUICE. “ To be honest, I ride the JUICE 50% of my sessions in Russia both in the snow and on the water. When I give my JUICE to others, they are always surprised at how fast it is and quick to react as the sizes are quite big. It’s so versatile for all light wind activities such as Foiling, Twintip Freestyle, Wakestyle and my favorite, Park Riding.”

IN A NUTSHELL

The JUICE’s brand new, super light weight construction means the whole range of Juices is 15% lighter than previous seasons. The JUICE is specifically designed for those magic light wind sessions. Equipped with excellent upwind performance and old school jumping abilities, the range of sizes opens up a new playground for Twintip and Foil riders alike. No quiver should be without a JUICE.

      “The AV8 design concept places the rider directly in the middle of two incredibly tuned kite boarding machines. Both the AV8 kite and board are designed to cut through the elements with minimum drag and maximum efficiency.
       
      Separately, the kite and board are phenomenal in their own right, but together they create the apex performance freeride experience. AV8 is the equivalent of a wind driven supercar in every respect.” - Pete Cabrinha.

      TAKE THE LEAP
      The Hyperlink V2 is the perfect option for anyone taking the leap from inflatable to foil kites.
      It has a rapid inflation thanks to the new valve design and positioning combined with a new internal structure.
      The new drainage valves at both wing tips seal to keep air in, and open up when water needs to drain out.
       

       
      ALL TERRAIN
      With unparalleled stability, lighter weight, improved handling and bar feeling the V2 design takes it to the next level.
      It excels on water, snow and land. Our innovative valve design makes it quick and easy to set up as a Closed Cell or Open Cell kite.
       

       
      LIGHT & STRONG
      The Hyperlink V2 features an all-new material combination; it's durable, airtight and extremely lightweight.
      The new material has a unique formulated coating to help shed water, improving flying characteristics and water re-launch.
       

       
      SELF LAND WITH EASE
      The ability to safely self-land a kite on the snow or land is a crucial feature.
      We have completely re-designed the internal structure to incorporate our industry leading Internal Re-Ride Release System.
      This allows the kite to de-power instantly without tangling, and falls to the ground to re-launch when ready.
