2019 Duotone Rebel Review

2019 Duotone Rebel Review

The most in-depth review on the 2019 Duotone Rebel.

Today, we’re reviewing the 2019 Duotone Rebel. It’s a kiteboarding kite that’s been around forever, pretty much has a cult following and in 2018 North kiteboarding completely redesigned it. Purist lost their minds, new riders loved it and everyone else is still trying to sort it out. We’ve had this kite for well over a year now and we’ve been testing.

So, do the new changes actually make for a better kite? Can you expect the same classic Rebel feel? And the big question? how does the new Rebel actually stack up?

Got an hour on a 12m last week. Wind started good then dropped off slowly. I was quite impressed with it's low end, didn't feel grunt but kept me riding longer than I felt it should have. Didn't get to ride way over-powered though.

Reminded me of my old Crossbows... Bit of a one-trick pony -- easy jumping, that's all.
