Welcome to D/Lab world.
Now we're pursuing kiteboarding as it moves in another direction: into the future. Enter D/LAB. The experimental, future-looking, developmental arm of Duotone. D/LAB thinks three moves ahead. Separate yet tied into our normal R and D teams, D/LAB thinks outside the box, looks for the unturned stone that might provide the competitive edge in finding the next milestone in kiteboarding design. From new foil construction methods to some of the lightest weight kites the industry has seen, D/LAB operates outside the limits of existing design and technology in kiteboarding to bring you tomorrow's greatest and most exclusive technology today.
The Juice D/LAB is the apex predator at the top of the food chain, without a doubt one of the lightest light wind kites on the market and featuring the most advanced design innovations in our range!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 the very first extreme high-end kite to make the production line, it won't be the last. By using Aluula Gold alongside other new materials, we have ironed out the issues experienced by others and achieved to bring a kite to the market that sets a whole new standard. The new fabric reduces the weight of the kite by up to 30% depending on the size - that is a huge saving, especially when the wind is light. Elsewhere the construction has been fine-tuned to reduce weight wherever possible, whileinnovative use of material weaves allow 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 too, 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. 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. The probably biggest advantage of the new material is the combination of very little stretch in longitudinal and lateral direction, but with a huge biaxial elongation - the reason why an Aluula kite is turning so extremely well. It's quite simply the best kite we can produce right now, D/LAB is a completely new dimension 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.
Kite material: Aluula
Aluula Gold - used for the inflated structure of a kite, is a brand-new, innovative, ultra strong, composite material. As a result, this composite is created to be highly tear resistant, stretch resistant and up to even 50% lighter than standard Dacron! Simply just what our kite designers have been looking for, to build the most exciting kites you ever had in your hands!
Based on the perfect mix of multiple co-polymer layers, a huge weight reduction is possible. Additionally, the highest tear resistance of Duotone's materials is achieved due to the structural stiffness of the laminate of Aluula Gold. The probably biggest advantage of the material is the combination of very little stretch in vertical and horizontal direction, but with a huge biaxial elongation - the reason why an Aluula kite is turning so extremely well. D/LAB kites are the pinnacle of kite design and you'll notice latest, the moment you launch it.
