The Duotone Evo SLS, a kite for the experienced, ambitious and enthusiastic kiter, who will be surprised by its flying and handling characteristics. The new benchmark in performance and handling. SLS stands for Strong Light Superior, it’s the quest for perfection, and it incorporates new technologies, construction materials and techniques everywhere you see the SLS logo.
The Evo SLS sets a new standard for versatility, it’s perfect for boosting huge airs, riding waves and tricking out some freestyle moves. If you just want to cruise then don’t worry, it’s ideal for that and also works really well for foiling! The R&D Team was constantly surprised the Evo SLS would never fall out of the sky, even when the foil kites were down already. The Evo SLS is the ultimate one kite does it all concept.
Built using the incredibly light and durable Penta TX material for the frame and coupled with a signature Trinity TX canopy material, the kite is up to 15% lighter than the original construction. This loss of weight results in incredible handling and reactivity, tight fast loops, a wide wind range, and in general stunning flying characteristics.
Coupled with the fantastic build quality, you are assured of a durable kite that can handle a wide range of conditions. The Flex Struts allow the kite to really open up and twist when you engage the steering at the bar, resulting in a very dynamic handling experience. This improved handling experience allows you to quickly redirect the kite and get tension in the lines for huge hooked airs while giving you total control at all times. The lighter nature of the kite also means you can even get good drift in the waves. Couple this with the responsive nature and you have a kite that even works for both onshore and offshore wave riding conditions.
Finally, freestyling on the Evo SLS you will unlock the potential to pull some of the best tricks you've ever landed. Offering just the right amount of pop and release, you'll be flying through the air hooked or unhooked and be sure of the envy of your friends. The relaunch is effortless, so if you do crash, you won't be wasting precious session time in the water, maximizing every opportunity to improve your riding. There are a lot of kites out there that claim to be truly versatile, but only the Evo SLS offers versatility with an unmatched performance level. Don't let your gear define the way you ride; take the Evo SLS to the beach, make the most of whatever the conditions throw at you and ride the way you want.
No matter what you decide to do with the Evo SLS, you’ll be blown away by the performance, it’s changing the way Duotone think about kiteboarding.
