Duotone Rebel 2020

rebel - Duotone Rebel 2020

The new Duotone 2020 Rebel is out, and a kite that's just been proven time and again has had some material tweaks to improve performance even further. These include a lighter trailing edge, increased structural stiffness and an all-round crisper feel. Here's what Duotone have to say…

The kite that redefined kiteboarding is back once again… If freeriding, big air and unreal hangtime is your goal, the Rebel is your best shot!

The Rebel has been part of Duotone’s history, and it is very much part of our future. The five-strut kite is the ultimate freeride and big air weapon, perfect for cruising lagoons or for soaring through the skies.

For 2020 the leading edge diameter has been reduced, this makes the kite a little faster and a lot more efficient. In addition to this, there is also a new flatter section in the middle of the canopy profile. This unique design increases the power of the kite, while the designers have ensured the legendary depower of the Rebel remains. This means the kite now has a much bigger wind range, meaning fewer kites in your quiver and more time on the water if the conditions change.

The new trailing edge wave design further enhances the life span of the canopy and reduces flutter. The Rebel has excellent sheet and go capabilities, meaning you can easily dial up power at the bar. It’s a fantastic kite for progressing, as it is so forgiving, however, it is also packed with performance too.

The Rebel is the kite you need when you want to send it to the moon, if you want bigger jumps from your sessions, it’s time to join the Rebellion!
