Duotone Kiteboarding Newsletter - Juice 2019

Recommended Posts

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.

      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.”
      Gianmaria Coccoluto
       
      Overview
      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.
       
      What´s new
      New, lighter Trailing Edge wave patch for reduced flutter and TE flutter marks Harmony between canopy tension and structural stiffness compliments the stable canopy for punchy pop and great slack Responsive power release delay  
      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.
