The most user-friendly all-rounder in the Duotone line up, perfect for freeride, hooked freestyle and playing in some waves, it is one of the most popular kites on the market. Sometimes you don't want your kite to define your riding, and we all want an easy ride to fast track our progression within the sport. The Evo is that kite, and more, our design team wanted to create not only the most user-friendly kite on the market, with performance that is easy to unlock, but also the most versatile kite they could.
The result is intoxicating, no matter your level or the style of riding you prefer. For freeriding, you easily have to have access to enjoyment for every level of rider, the jumps are easy to dial in, and there is enough hang time to delight the most discerning of riders. The kite has a "sheet and go" nature that makes it easy to control and gives the rider plenty of confidence on the water. This is the kite that will help you
progress quickly while not holding you back as your riding improves. The dynamic nature allows you to control the arc; as you engage the bar more, the turning speed increases. This attribute lends the kite to a bit of wave riding and will allow you to
explore challenging conditions with ease. If your riding heads down a freestyle path, the Evo has you covered, it is perfect for those first forays into unhooked riding, and you'll find yourself landing raleys faster than you could imagine.
The kite is also excellent for a range of abilities; starters will enjoy the forgiving easy to use nature, while more advanced riders will enjoy the enormous hooked boosting capabilities and even pulling kite loops too, if you have the guts. If ever there was a kite that wasn't defined by a discipline or a rider's style, the Evo is it. However, you choose to play on the water, whatever your level, the Evo is the kite that can take you to the next level.

The Evo has been in the Duotone line up for many years now, and in the constant search for improvement, it has become the best performing kite across all disciplines. Riders like Tom Hebert don’t let kiteboarding define them, and they love to do freestyle as much as they love old school big air and foiling. The Evo is Tom’s choice, as it doesn’t hold him back, no matter what he decides to do. For 2020 we removed the pulleys from the bridle, this has the effect of increasing the responsiveness of the kite while still offering incredible depower. There is also a new trailing edge design incorporating a wave pattern that drastically reduces flutter and canopy wear in this critical area. The Evo can be flown as a four or five line kite, and the three-strut delta design is ready for anything you decide to do. Kiteboarding has always been about freedom, don’t let other kites define you, let the Evo set you free!
