What Duotone has to say about the 2019 Select Textreme
The Select Textreme delivers a superlative ride thanks to its unique combination of weight, comfort and speed. It simply defines high performance freeride.

Designed to be the fastest most exhilarating twin tip on the market, its secret starts with the unique construction technology.

Not only that, the materials offer a dynamic flex that is soft for comfort but also provides plenty of energy and pop, this combined with the Space Flex Technology makes it the best ride you ever had. Many riders say it’s the most responsive board they have ever ridden, once you’ve tried it; you won’t want to ride anything else. If you want the fastest, lightest most progressive freeride board around, look no further than the impressive Select Textreme.

Step Mono Concave
The Step Mono Concave is the fastest and easiest to ride bottom concepts. It can be carved easily through turns and always delivers the right grip. It planes early, allows smaller fins and helps to go upwind with ease.
Space Flex Technology
Space Flex adapts to the water´s surface and enhances all turning characteristics. Stiff outside frame coupled with the soft tips creates smooth water release and early planing. Reduction in swing weight facilitates easier tricks and faster rotations.
The special shape of the 3D cap allows torsion of the long axis of the board. This gives them more grip on the heel-side edge, rich and smooth landings, a direct drive and better upwind performance. Invented by Duotone.
Textreme Carbon Construction
The Select Textreme, Jaime Textreme, Soleil Textreme and Spike Textreme are made using a full carbon construction, which showcases all of our expertise in Twintip design. To achieve the best possible performance, each line has an individual carbon layup with a special focus on lightweight and liveliness. To achieve the maximum weight reduction the top deck uses the patented Spread Tow Fabric. On the bottom a 45-degree diagonal Biax Carbon is employed to guarantee maximum pop and grip.
Grab Rails for easier board off manoeuvres and comfortable general riding.
Soft Flex boards are the most friendly and “easy to use” boards in our range. The Soft Flex option is forgiving and simply fun to ride, even if you are an inexperienced rider. However, the Soft Flex option is also suitable for more lightweight riders.
