Watch the NEO in action as we talk you through the new tuning options for waves and depower, or how 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.

“There’s so much harmony in the 2020 NEO and it allows me to step outside my comfort zone, especially in the waves.”

Matchu Lopes

 

Overview

The Neo is the choice of our highly decorated wave riding team, Airton Cozzolino, Matchu Lopes, Sebastian Ribeiro, James Carew and Patri McLaughlin. On the wave, it offers dynamic handling and incredible drift. When you want to freeride it’s an easy going companion. Enormous amounts of power and the depower is incredible. Exceptionally reactive and precise, you are always in total control with the NEO. Whether you are riding a monster at One Eye, pulling a strapless kite loop twenty feet up or just slaying some Euro mush, you need the Neo in your quiver.

 

 

What´s new

  • New, lighter Trailing Edge wave patch for reduced flutter and TE flutter marks
  • Newly developed 75 gram Ripstop material
  • Improved bar feedback at the top of the windrange

Sebastian Ribiero is one of those guys who’s always trying to push limits in light winds and Matchu Lopes strives to step outside of his comfort zone. Olivia Jenkins charges Jaws, Patri McLaughlin needs to trust his kite or he’ll end up in some sticky situations in massive waves and James Carew is simply trying to destroy waves.

The 2020 NEO remains true to its roots and its purpose in life. Fantastic drifting abilities, responsive steering - powered or depowered, 4 and 5-line setup. It’s the go-to surf kite for all good and wannabe-good wave riders looking to get the most out of every wave session, as well as a good performer in freeride and foiling.
