DUOTONE Kiteboard PRO WHIP CSC
- Sizes: 5'0'' / 5'2'' / 5'4''
- Model: 2019
- Discipline: Wave
SMALL TO MEDIUM WAVES / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE
Modern high-performance compact shape, aimed at performing in small to medium waves.
The 2019 Pro Whip CSC features a subtle winger in the outline behind the front fins, which reduces the tail area slightly. This prevents the tail lifting out during high-speed turns and also allows for tighter snaps and more precise and controlled rail and fin release.
The deep twin channel running from the nose to the tail gives the Whip incredible directional stability and a very balanced and controlled feel while still allowing for maximum manoeuvrability. The result is a modern board with remarkable control, balance, speed and the ability to carve smooth arcs and radical top to bottom vertical snaps. The Pro Whip also features a double concave deck shape, optimized volume distribution to aid control and a subtle grab rail for strapless tricks.
The Pro Whip utilizes Light Team Construction and is the ultimate weapon when you want to shred small to medium sized waves.
- CSC design - Compact Shape Concept delivers direct feedback and impressive rail grip.
- Snappy and Carvy - Perfect for tight snaps and smooth carves.
- Fast and stable - Speed in combination with absolute control is the magic combination.
- Light Team Construction - A very light, still very robust construction with a lot of feedback for the rider.
- Cork shock absorber 2.0 - The cork shock absorber 2.0 is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboard to avoid heel dents.
- Vacuum Epoxy Custom - The best mix for a pure surf feel, but still robust and durable enough to take the impacts a kitesurf board needs to take.
Light Team Construction
For 2019, Duotone is using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that we no longer use a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!
Using bamboo in the surf boards, gives full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help us to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!
All boards now come with our own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using our high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.
Cork Shock Absorber 2.0
Cork offers excellent absorption characteristics and reforms entirely without leaving any visible dents in contrast to PVC. Therefore, it is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboards.
Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.
Technora is a para-aramid fibre with excellent technical properties for high performance kite surfboards. It’s high-tensile strength, good fatigue resistance and long term dimensional stability make it an ideal fibre for use in areas of boards that take repeated impact. Duotone have oriented the Technora fibre in a way that does not affect the overall feel and flex of the board and have slightly altered our overall layup in order to not add any additional weight to the boards while still taking full advantage of the superior strength of Technora to prevent cracking and breakage.
