Rider Profile

Big air and heavy riders

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The kite that redefined kiteboarding is back once again; if freeriding, big air and unreal hangtime is your goal, the Rebel is your best shot

NEW Features

Reduced diameter leading edge

A thinner leading edge makes the Rebel more efficient, but also allows it to twist, increasing the turning speed and making the handling very dynamic.

  • Flatter centre shape

A new flatter profile in the centre of the kite adds power and improves the flying characteristics.

  • Powerful lift and huge hangtime

Perfect for freeride performance with explosive powerful lift and huge as well as long hangtime.

  • Best sheet and go power development

The sheet and go handling makes a kite incredibly easy to fly.

  • Biggest windrange

The Rebel can be flown in a very wide aspect of wind strengths, without changing the size.

  • New trailing edge design for less canopy wear

A narrower trailing edge and a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

Still the best and easiest kite around. After riding C-kites for a long time, I switched to the Rebel. This kite is much more easy & thus more fun for me. Just broke my personal record on it with 23.9 meters high. You are even able to loop this kite. So a great kite for an advanced rider. AND there is not a better kite for my brother who is a beginner. Great allround kite!

If I could give advice after 13 years of kiting, it would be to go for comfy equipment with big range. For me it does not hold me back in any tricks & I have a lot more fun.

I only ride hooked.

After a few years of kiting with the Duotone Evo's. Had a few great sessions with the 10m Rebel. Why? Well it's more powerful and has a great feedback on the bar. For some maybe a bit too much but that's a personal thing. Loved it Ito feel the feedback, control and floating ability! I think the stronger the wind the more performance this Rebel delivers. I am gonna try it on a hydrofoil but it certainly brought back the good old twintip kite session.
