* Unfortunately, we've already sold out of Evo SLS and Duotone has informed us there are no more being made this year.
The best and most successful all-rounder in the Duotone range just got even better, on top of the Evo range, we proudly introduce the high-performance Evo SLS - an experience of flying a kite like never before! SLS incorporates new materials and technologies across the Duotone range to create an even better performing product.
Meet the Evo SLS, a kite for the experienced, ambitious and enthusiastic kiter, who will be surprised by its flying and handling characteristics. The new benchmark in performance and handling.
SLS stands for Strong Light Superior, it’s the quest for perfection, and it incorporates new technologies, construction materials and techniques everywhere you see the SLS logo.
The Evo SLS sets a new standard for versatility, it’s perfect for boosting huge airs, riding waves and tricking out some freestyle moves. If you just want to cruise then don’t worry, it’s ideal for that and also works really well for foiling! The R&D Team was constantly surprised the Evo SLS would never fall out of the sky, even when the foil kites were down already.
The Evo SLS is the ultimate one kite does it all concept. The new construction for 2021 replaces the Dacron with Penta TX, significantly reducing the weight of the kite by 15% while making it five times more durable. This supercharges the handling, increases the wind range and turns the Evo SLS into an experience you have never felt before with a kite. The new materials and construction make the kite much stiffer, resulting in a very agile and precise overall handling, while the reduced weight improves the low-end.
The new Flex Struts allow the kite to twist like never before when you engage the bar, and this results in lightning-fast handling that is guaranteed to excite you. No matter what you decide to do with the Evo SLS, you’ll be blown away by the performance, it’s changing the way we think about kiteboarding. It allows you to get on the water earlier, stay out for longer and have control at your fingertips that other kites can only dream of.
Maximise your ride, go all out with the new Evo SLS and connect with your kite in a way you could have only imagined before.

Penta TX, the guarantee for a sportier, more precise and crisper feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. Penta TX replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron. Penta TX is a quite stiff material, resulting in a high structural stiffness, especially recognizable in strong wind conditions, leading to less deformation of the overall structure of the kite. It's responsible for a very precise timing when edging, releasing the edge and all steering impulses - the precise and reliable steering of a racing car. Penta TX is used in the leading edge and the center strut.
The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.
