The Rebel kite has been part of Duotone’s history, and it is very much part of our future. The five-strut kite is the ultimate freeride and big air kite, perfect for cruising lagoons or for soaring through the sky. For the 2020 Rebel, the leading edge diameter is reduced, which makes the kite a bit faster and more efficient. In addition to the reduction of the leading edge diameter, there has also been added a new flatter section to the middle of the canopy profile. This unique design increases the power of the kite, while the designers have ensured the legendary depower of the Rebel remains.
Duotone Rebel – a freeride kite with an extensive wind range
That means that 2020 Rebel now has an even more extensive wind range, which translates into the need for fewer kites in your quiver and more time on the water if the conditions change. The new trailing edge wave design further enhances the life span of the canopy and reduces flutter. The Rebel has excellent “sheet and go” capabilities, meaning you can easily dial up power at the bar. It’s a fantastic kite for progressing, as it is so forgiving, however, it is also packed with performance too. The Rebel is the kite you need when you want to send it to the moon, if you want bigger jumps from your sessions, it’s time to join the Rebellion.

Powerful lift and huge hangtime
Perfect for freeride performance with explosive, powerful lift and huge as well as long hangtime.
“Sheet & Go” power development
The “sheet and go” handling makes the kite incredibly easy to fly.
