Based on the Duotone light weight concept saving 15% of weight compared to classic kites, the Mono is a one strut kite designed to offer incredible all-round performance for the rider looking for that little bit extra. Featuring a super low aspect design, the Mono has been created to optimize light wind conditions while still having a wide wind range to make it a solid choice for anyone's quiver. All too often one strut kites have excellent low range performance but flutter as soon as the wind picks up. The Mono is different, the shape and construction combine to reduce flutter to a minimum while still offering lots of user-friendly performance into the package. The power development is very progressive, making it an easy kite for anyone to fly, while the handling is responsive with a forgiving nature. In lighter winds most kites have a tendency to back stall for the less skilled riders, this can be difficult to manage. By designing a lower aspect shape, while keeping the overall weight to an absolute minimum this characteristic has been negated from the Mono, it just wants to fly. The perfect tool for the freerider looking for a light wind weapon, kite foilers wanting simplicity and even wave riders who lack wind at their spot. Suited to a wide range of abilities from beginner to experts, the Mono has something to offer everyone out there. The relaunch is so easy, the kite almost bounces off the water when you crash it, even in light winds. If you haven't flown the Mono lately why not get a demo and see what you are missing out on. It's an experience that is sure to excite and amaze you.
HEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM
The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.
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 maneuver.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3x2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.
The 3x2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2x2 or 4x4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.
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.
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.
