2022 DUOTONE JUICE D/LAB
FREERIDE / LIGHTWIND / FOIL
What happens when you throw convention out the window and embrace the future of kite technology and innovation? D/LAB is precisely that, the pinnacle of everything that is done here at Duotone. The Juice D/LAB is part of a new range of high-end products to come out of the Duotone laboratory. Using a new version of Aluula, Duotone has ironed out the issues experienced by other brands to bring a kite to the market that sets a whole new standard. The new fabric in combination with new construction features reduces the weight of the kite by up to 30% compared to standard constructions and depending on the size, which is a considerable saving of up to 1kg, especially when the wind is light. Elsewhere the construction has been fine-tuned to reduce weight wherever possible, while innovative use of material weaves allows improved turning ability and response. The Juice D/LAB isn’t just a lighter version of the Juice; the handling and performance are significantly improved, allowing you to get riding earlier and have more fun on the water. The kite generates enormous amounts of power with real acceleration on the up and the downstrokes, even in the lightest airs, making foiling in nearly no wind a never experienced adventure. The reduced weight and improved handling make it an exciting kite to fly, and you will be boosting higher and flying for longer than anyone else on the beach. D/LAB will set a new standard in the kite industry, and you can be the first to experience it. Get the Juice D/LAB now and never miss a session again; make every hour on the water count and enjoy the very pinnacle of kite technology!

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.
Modern Trailing Edge Design
A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite 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 manoeuvre.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
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.
