THE BEST PERFORMANCE ALL-ROUNDER IN THE DUOTONE LINE UP! THE EVO SLS IS EXCEEDINGLY CAPABLE AS A FREERIDE, BIG AIR, HOOKED FREESTYLE, AND WITH THE SLS CONSTRUCTION, DELIVERS AN UNPARALLELED DYNAMIC FLYING EXPERIENCE.

If you want the ultimate in performance across the widest range of disciplines, the all-new Evo SLS is the kite you need in your quiver. Built using the SLS construction and materials, including the incredibly lightweight and durable Penta TX, combined with Trinity TX to shave up to 15% of the kite’s weight compared to regular models.

It’s not just about making the kite light, though; the construction also makes the kite stiffer, which improves the flying characteristics in every area. You get more pop, and better take offs along with huge hangtime. The handling is incredibly dynamic, helped by the new Flex Struts, allowing the kite to twist resulting in significantly faster and tighter turns. The pulley less bridle means less maintenance and better handling, especially when throwing kite loops.

Total control is right at your fingertips at every stage of every trick as the kite becomes an extension of your body. The weapon of choice for riders looking for a high-performance versatile kite, the Evo SLS performs no matter your riding style. Big air, freeride, hooked freestyle and wave riding are all a dream with the new Evo SLS, except this is a perfect dream that you can revisit every time you hit the water!

KEY FEATURES

  • THE PERFECT PERFORMANCE ALL-ROUNDER: Easy to access, high-performance no matter your riding style, great for big air, freeride, hooked freestyle and playing in the waves.
  • AGGRESSIVE LIFT: The Evo SLS delivers incredible take off speeds, lift, and floaty hangtime thanks to the rigid frame and direct and dynamic steering.
  • IMPROVED LOW END: The new Flex Strut design helps the kite turn and climb faster than ever before, vastly improving the low-end range.
  • SLS CONSTRUCTION: The SLS construction helps reduce the overall weight of the kite. In addition, high performance materials, such as the Penta TX frame and Trinity TX canopy, make the kite up to 15% lighter compared to regular models, while offering excellent durability.
  • PULLEY LESS BRIDLE SYSTEM: The pulley-less bridle system offers a more dynamic and direct feel to the kite and a longer-lasting and more durable bridle for harsh use.
  • MULTIPLE TIP TUNING OPTIONS: Tune the kite to your riding style, increase the turning speed or slow it down, increase or decrease the bar pressure, and fly the kite how you want to fly it.

Technology

Anti Snag: The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

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.

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.

Modern Trailing Edge Design: A narrower trailing edge and a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

Flex Struts: The counterpart to a stiff frame are the FLEX STRUTS, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three strut kite, combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5-strut kite.

Penta TX Frame Construction: Penta TX, the guarentee for a more sporty, more precise and crisp feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. Penta TX replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron.
