Watch the 2020 VEGAS in action whilst we talk you through every update, performance feature and overall design that creates the ultimate C-Kite.
“It´s the kite I´ve been riding since 2013 and I can´t think of any better kite for me to go big and stick clean, smooth landings.”
Designed for purpose, driven by performance, the 2020 VEGAS has been sharpened up through almost invisible tweaks. That in combination with the use of new materials, a huge innovation by Duotone Kiteboarding in partnership with Teijin, the VEGAS looks as always, but its crisp feel is inspiring and exciting. Those who know or want what the VEGAS delivers can truly trust the precision and vision of designer Ralf Grösel. Keeping our women freestyle team covering all spots of the podium and industry legend, Aaron Hadlow, on the water and motivated every day is a true testament to the VEGAS. Time to unleash the beast.

Behind The Design with Ralf grösel
When developing such a highly tuned performance kite, changing anything affects the others and therefore its nature and in-flight characteristics. The new Trailing Edge wave patterns and 75 gram RipStop materials would have a really positive impact on the VEGAS, but we had to tweak and test the other design features to rebalance and achieve optimum equilibrium.
IN THE HANDS OF HADLOW
As the most specific competition kite the freestyle/wakestyle riders, Aaron Hadlow himself handles the performance testing of the VEGAS. The original C-Kite and King of the Air again sets the tone for the future.
2020 vegas in a Nutshell
This king of the C-Kites is in a league of its own. Riders wanting a pure Wakestyle/Freestyle machine with outstanding mega loop performance, look no further; the VEGAS has it all.
