in search of the best wave-riding performance? The Neo D/LAB is the most advanced wave kite available, featuring an Aluula frame that delivers otherworldly performance. Prepare to have your mind blown with this incredible addition to the Duotone lineup.
The long-awaited Neo D/Lab is finally here! We at Force have been absolutely blown away by the Juice D/Lab for its unmatched low-end performance and the astounding power it offers for its size. Utilization of Aluula and Trinity TX produces a lighter and stiffer kite, allowing for a smaller diameter airframe to reduce drag and generate unbelievable power in light conditions while still offering superior stiffness at 7psi.
These high-performance ultra-light kites allow you to ride the same size kite with near the same amount of power in 3-4knts less wind than if it were a more typical dacron construction. These enhancements make the kite inherently better for foiling and surfing as the kite can fly and relaunch in much lower windspeeds. With greater attention given to strut motion, the application of flex strut tech at the ends of the outer struts makes for an overall more efficient and responsive feel. This will be really noticed in the kite's ability to turn while depowered / with the bar out.
THE NEO IS FAMOUS FOR ITS INCREDIBLE DRIFTING ABILITIES; THE D/LAB VERSION IS UP TO 30% LIGHTER THAN THE ORIGINAL VERSION, ALLOWING THE KITE TO FLOAT DOWN THE LINE IN A MANNER YOU WOULD NOT THINK POSSIBLE.
THE TURNING SPEED AND THE STEERING IMPULSE OF THE NEO IS EXCEEDINGLY QUICK DUE TO THE NEW FLEX STRUT DESIGN. THE NEW ALUULA FABRIC MAKES THE KITE INCREDIBLY LIGHT WHILE ALSO CREATING A STIFFER, MORE RESPONSIVE FRAME AND EACH KITE HAS BEEN CAREFULLY FINE-TUNED FOR PERFORMANCE, THE FLEX STRUT WAS INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED TO EACH SIZE OF THE KITE.
ONE OF THE UNIQUE AND ENCHANTING FEATURES OF THE NEO D/LAB IS ITS ABILITY TO BE DIRECT AND DYNAMIC, EVEN WHEN THE BAR IS PUSHED OUT AND THE KITE IS DEPOWERED. THIS FEATURE ALLOWS YOU TO RIDE THE WAVE HOW YOU LIKE WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT BAR AND KITE CONTROL AS MUCH.
THE RANGE OF THE NEO D/LAB IS UNBELIEVABLE! IT HAS A HUGE BOTTOM END, THANKS TO THE LIGHTER ALUULA MATERIAL, MEANING YOU CAN GET GOING ON A SMALLER KITE BEFORE OTHER RIDERS. COUPLED WITH IMPRESSIVE DEPOWER, IT HAS YOU OUT RIDING FOR LONGER WHEN THE WIND PICKS UP, AND YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH A SMALLER QUIVER.
THIS HELPS TO REDUCE THE OVERALL WEIGHT OF THE KITE AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE BY MAKING THE FRAME STIFFER. IN ADDITION, MATERIALS LIKE ALUULA AND TRINITY TX MAKE THE KITE EXCEEDINGLY LIGHT WHILE OFFERING EXCELLENT DURABILITY.
THE LARGER KITES HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO USE A WIDER ARC AND HAVE LESS SWEEP IN THE TIPS, MAXIMISING POWER. AT THE SAME TIME, THE SMALLER SIZES HAVE MORE SWEEP AND A NARROWER ARC FOCUSING ON MANOEUVRABILITY.
What are you waiting for? The D/Lab Neo will get you on the water more often and riding more waves! The low-end sessions on the Alluula kites are some of the best because you've got the only tool to get you out when no one else can stay upwind. Once you try it, you'll never want to go back.
