Arriving end of September!!
What Duotone as to say about the Vegas Hadlow:
The ultimate C-Kite on the market with unrivaled performance for freestyle, park and kite loops.
The Vegas has long been established as the highest performing and most responsive C-kite on the market. It’s the go-to kite for professionals like Aaron Hadlow, Lewis Crathern, Stefan Spiessberger, Noé Font and Mikali Sol. You’ll find it on the podium of the GKA Freestyle World Tour, the Kite Park League and the King of The Air. The reason it is so popular is thanks to the incredible power release delay; when you pop, the kite flies forwards in the window creating slack in the lines allowing you to perform freestyle tricks with ease. It’s also one of the most predictable kites on the market for kite loops delivering large amounts of power and pull with unmatched stability. Riders all over the world love the tuning options and different settings allowing you to customize the kite not just to you, but also to the conditions of the day. If you want the best performing c-kite on the market right now, you need the Vegas, the choice of champions.

Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3x2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance. The 3x2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2x2 or 4x4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.
TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS
As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.
These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.
KOOK PROOF CONNECTORS
The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.
HEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM
The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.
This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.
SELF RESCUE HANDLES
The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue maneuver.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Water starts are made easier and safety is increased.
