2019 Duotone Soleil Kiteboard
Boards & More has dropped the name North Kiteboarding and has now rebranded as Duotone, under the parent company Boards & More, owns all of the patents from the North Kiteboarding gear currently sold on the market, which means the 2019 Soleil will be the of the same riding qualities and technologies that many know and love. So, what does this mean to you? Well, not much right now, but expect to see the same drive in quality and innovation as we have seen in previous years.
What Duotone has to say about the 2019 Soleil
Designed for women, by women, this impressive freeride board is perfect for riders looking to perfect their first freestyle moves.
The Soleil was one of the first kiteboards designed by women for women, and that concept holds true today. Completely redefined, the Soleil is now offering the Space Flex Technology. The Carbon Beam construction provides the board with a lively feel that is very reactive to rider input. Rail to rail carving is a dream while the pop is impressive. The softer flex in combination with the Space Flex Technology ensures the ride is smooth, even on the choppiest of days and the Step Mono Concave bottom gets you going early. Due to the new grab rails, the light weight and the narrow width of the board, it becomes much easier to handle and to control, even in windy and rough conditions. Many brands go with the “pink it and shrink it” approach, with the Soleil you get a female specific board that was designed and built from the ground up for women. You deserve something special; the Soleil was made just for you!

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.
The Premium Construction boards Jaime, Select and Soleil feature Carbon Beams, where parts of the glass fibre are being replaced by unidirectional carbon beams to noticeably improve the boards’ performance. This results in a faster and even more progressive flex for better pop and reduced weight.
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.
