The Duotone Vegas is the ultimate C-Kite on the market with unrivalled performance for freestyle, park and kite loops.
Used to devastating effect by World Champions and outstanding riders like Valentin Rodrigues, Mikaili Sol, Gianmaria Coccoluto and Aaron Hadlow, it has more bling in the trophy cabinet than any other Freestyle/Wakestyle kite.
The kite's core design focus is to help the riders perform the latest tricks and multiple passes. As freestyle develops the Vegas has had to match that pace and ensure our team riders have the sharpest tool in the box. The kite offers you incredible power with ultimate control as you dig in an edge ready to pop the lines load up, and the kite gives an explosive launch that is unrivalled amongst the competition.
Once you are in the air, all the power is released, and the line tension goes slack, allowing you to perform your tricks without getting pulled by the kite. This will enable you to stay on axis as you rotate and pass the bar with ease. All you have to do is focus on the trick and the landing and let the kite do the rest. The kite can be tuned for freestyle but also for kite loops too, where it excels.
It is still the kite of choice for many riders at the King of the Air, and his multiple successes at the event are a testament to the kite's capabilities when the wind is pumping. Built using our proven technologies with a Trinity TX canopy and incredible attention to detail, it will be your perfect partner for many seasons to come.
If you want to progress your freestyle riding, the Vegas is the kite you need to be betting the house on
Tuning your Vegas to suit your riding style:
By tuning the kite you can create a few different set ups and allow it to suit different riding styles. On the frontlines are two settings; freestyle gives the rider more depower, more lift, precision kiteloops and very reactive steering. The wakestyle setting gives the rider more pop when unhooked, a longer “power delay” to allow easier handle passes and slightly less reactive steering so you can concentrate on the rails and kickers. The rear lines can be tuned to increase or decrease the turning speed of the kite to suit almost any rider.
Standard Free-Ride Setting:
The standard free-ride setting offers everything you would expect from a free-ride kite like loads of depower, responsive steering and predictable handling.
The second setting is ideal for taking your first steps into freestyle, offering noticeably harder bar pressure providing more accurate kite feedback and making steering slightly less responsive to practice unhooked tricks.
New School Setting:
The third option converts the Vegas into a fullblooded new-school / wake machine that sits deeper in the wind window and delivers consistent pull with a very limited de-power stroke. This is the preferred setting of our core freestyle team and allows you to do the most powerful kite-loops and offers the most explosive pop for powered new-school and wake tricks.
5th line Freestyle High Depower Classic Setting:
Plenty of de-power and the classic Vegas feel you‘ve come to expect! This setting offers the most versatility and is ideal for free/wave riding, jumping and un-hooking.
5th line Freestyle / Newschool:
Dedicated new-school feel, little to no de-power, extremely steady when unhooked and less sensitive to bar input for loaded power moves. All the safety and relaunch benefits of the 5th Element.
With the New School set up the Vegas still retains some Depower but becomes less sensitive to bar sheeting and steering making it ideal for unhooking.
Duotone have completely re-worked the Vegas to cover a wider range of conditions and riding styles than ever before! A slightly lower aspect ratio and wider wing tips means very constant pull, extremely tight kite loops and improved low end grunt to please the C-kite lover in you.
As progressive freestyle kiteboarding evolves, the Vegas adapts and conquers! The Vegas is a high de-power C-design tuned for direct bar-feel and constant power to give you confidence when loading up, unhooking and throwing powered tricks and jumps.
Smooth, reactive steering gives the kite a very lively and crisp feel and also makes the Vegas perfect for kite-loops. 5th Element safety lets you go for glory with peace of mind while the Vegas' quick, easy re-launch gets you back up and riding hassle-free after a wipe-out.
Direct bar feedback allows you to feel exactly where the kite is for maximum control when un-hooking and jumping.
Using a redefined leading edge arc, canopy profile and swept wing tips, the VEGAS challenges what was previously thought possible with a five-line kite, changing angle of attack instantly to deliver a huge power/de-power range.
Simply rigged on Duotone's 5th Element, the VEGAS has the direct bar feel and instant turning response of a c-shape kite, without the hassle of bridles or pulleys normally associated with a flat kite.
The Duotone VEGAS makes setting up for a jump almost effortless by allowing you to depower as you position the kite above your head, then sheet in for power and lift.
If you’re looking for competition performance and safety with the simplicity of five lines, then look no further . . . The VEGAS will give you all the tools you need! Simply put, the Duotone Vegas is the ultimate freestyle kite with explosive pop to elevate your riding to new levels and to refine your style. The Vegas easily lives up to it's reputation as the definitive freestyle kite, robust construction and unmistakable style.
