Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The Evo is THE leading all round kite. The greatest freeride formula today. With 3-Struts, a huge wind range, superior stability, precise power delivery, and responsive handling, the Evo is fun and versatile from wave riding to freestyle. The Evo is the best all-rounder with an incredible wind range, precise power delivery, amazing stability and responsive handling, making it the choice for any type of conditions or riding style. The EVO was a real standout kite of last year; completely redesigned on three struts, it is now a dedicated three-strut all-rounder that impressed everyone who flew it. With incredible hangtime and massive boosting capabilities, it became one of Duotone’s most popular kites. The EVO is a delta-shaped kite designed to offer fantastic upwind performance and huge jumps. It has a dynamic turn that lends itself well to playing in the waves, and the kite is perfect for those riders looking to try their first freestyle moves too. It doesn’t matter what your style is on the water; the EVO is truly capable of handling it all. The structural stiffness of the smaller sizes has been enhanced, making them rock solid even in gusty and strong winds. Reduced bar pressure makes the kite easy to fly and very forgiving, appealing to a lot of riders across the ability spectrum. Sheet and go handling further enhance the rider experience, meaning the incredible performance of the EVO is available to everyone. If your riding isn’t confined to a particular discipline and you like to keep your options open for freestyle, big air, and waves, then you need the EVOlution!

Comments:
Had a foil session with the new Duotone Evo 12m. Tested the 12m because I heard of the Duotone agent that the mid sizes are pretty the same. It's the bigger and smaller sizes they tweaked. So the main thing I felt was a bit more rigid frame. I had the 12m on 22m lines and great feel, normally with foiling I like the 12+ sizes on longer lines (line split) but with this new 12m the 22m lines (2018) felt real good.
