THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
We love to kite, all styles and foiling, too! We can't stress enough how much we love this kite, in general, but most specifically for kitesurfing and foiling. The Neo is so good, it's hard to lay hands on our demos because it's in such high demand. In the waves, it's handling and incredible drift make it our go-to kite when the surf's up. When the surf is flat and foiling is on the menu, the Neo never disappoints either. Power it up when you want juice; depower when you don't. Turn it on a dime or run straight at it on a foil or surfboard without worrying about it being there when you engage the tension again. If you are looking for a top-notch surf or foil kite, you will love the Neo!
DUOTONE'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Neo is a high-performance purebred wave-riding kite with incredible handling and excellent drifting capabilities that can also perform for freeriding and foiling.
If you like nothing better than carving smooth bottom turns and smashing off the lips, then the NEO is the kite for you. Developed by Ken Winner alongside our pro wave riders and World Champions Airton Cozzolino, Matchu Lopes, Sebastian Ribeiro and Patri McLaughlin, this is the kite of choice on the GKA Strapless World Tour. Now with improved handling, thanks to the special Flex Segment which is integrated into the leading edge. This unique feature allows the kite to twist more when it is turning; this increases the responsiveness of the kite and results in a fast more dynamic ride. Of course, the NEO is still incredibly powerful and thanks to its lightweight, yet tough design the drifting ability is unsurpassed. Combined with the revolutionary Click Bar, you get a huge depower throw and the ability to dump all the power from the kite in an instant. Not only is this feature important during critical moments on the wave, it is also crucial for landing technical strapless tricks. The kite can be tuned to a freeride setting, which is great for cruising, boosting and foiling too. No matter what kind of conditions you ride, onshore, offshore, from small to flatwater strapless freestyle, the NEO is the only wave kite you’ll need!
