2020 Duotone Team Series Kiteboard
Arriving in September!!
What Duotone has to say about the Team Series:
The ultimate freestyle weapon made lighter, faster, stronger and with even more pop!!
How do you make the Team Series even better? Add some incredibly high tech materials and construction to make it lighter, faster and stronger with even more pop! Duotone has been using Textreme Innegra Carbon in some of the boards for a few years. Hailing from the Formula 1 industry, it has some unique properties that work well within kiteboarding. By using the correct weaves and laminating them in the right manner, we can control the flex even more and reduce the weight while increasing the strength. This totally new board for 2020 also features a Grindbase so you can use it in the park as well as the flats. The suspension Flex Cap reduces reverse flex to a minimum and the Single Diffusor Base smooth’s out the landings. The grip comes from the deep channels and unique tip shape; this combined with the lively characteristics of the materials, combines to offer the ultimate in pop. The Team Series is an incredible board, the TS Textreme is that board on steroids. If you want the best twin tip for freestyle and new school moves, the TS Textreme is the board to have in your arsenal.

- TEXTREME INNEGRA AND 45° BIAX CARBON CONSTRUCTION - THE TEXTREME INNEGRA AND 45° BIAX CARBON CONSTRUCTION MASSIVELY IMPROVES THE BOARD´S PERFROMANCE. IT RESULTS IN A FAST AND PROGRESSIVE FLEX FOR BETTER POP WITH REDUCED WEIGHT.
The mix of Carbon and Innegra makes the construction of the Duotone Team Series Textreme and the Team Series Hadlow Textreme absolutely unique. Innegra itself is a high performance fiber used in composite and textile applications which can be converted into many different reinforcements in Twintip design, offering smooth dampening and enhanced breaking resistance. Combined with carbon you get a lightweight but durable board offering incredible pop and precise feedback. This material combination produces Freestyle and Wakestyle purebreds, that feel just at home at your local spot, or in a heat on the GKA Freestyle Tour.
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.
SUSPENSION FLEX CAP
The brand new suspension Flex Cap makes it possible to create a very stiff center of the board, whilst keeping a lot of torsional stiffness through a stiff frame at the the tips of the board. Pop and control is guaranteed, whilst energy during landings is absorbed by the board – and not your knees. Additionally it is possible to have a flatter center, resulting in your boots sitting flatter on the board, offering that little extra bit of even more control. But the main and most important news is: reverse flex during landings is nearly eliminated.
The Hard Flex option features the most aggressive flex and pop in our range. Boards with Hard Flex have more dynamic power development when jumping, more stiffness for better control on ultra-hard landings and a unique pop to always be one step ahead of your competitors.
PREMIUM PERFORMANCE CONSTRUCTION
The most sophisticated construction in the line is developed especially for the TS Hadlow and the Team Series boards. It’s the most durable construction in the line, showing the peak of board development. A 45 degrees bi carbon layer under the foot pad area ensures a very smooth but comfortable flex and also provides the board with maximum durability. This construction is developed for competition oriented riders by the best riders of the world, focusing on massive grip and pop – even without fins!
ABSORPTION FLEX TIPS
Based on a unique new construction of the board in the tip area, the scoop rocker line ensures better response to changing situations. In under-powered riding, the board remains flat for fast planing. In overpowered riding, the scoop bends and provides for an increased level of control and stability. The flex tips absorb shocks and enable soft landings.
SINGLE DIFFUSOR BOTTOM
The brand new Single Diffusor bottom, is supporting the riding style in boots, offering loads of grip combined with smooth, fast, but controlled landings. For smooth landings, the center concave pushes water directly into the tip channel.
STEP DOUBLE CONCAVE WIDE CHANNEL
The Step Double Concave is the reason the Team Series is able to deliver massive grip – with or without fins, to meet the expectations of team riders competing in the World Tour, as well as ambitious freestylers. The deep concaves provide massive grip and pop
