The Duotone Jaime SLS 2024 Kiteboard has been a favorite of almost every pro rider at Duotone for years. After 15 years of development, the Duotone Jaime SLS is back in the lineup in 2024. The upwind properties of the new Jaime are also astonishing. Thanks to the new channels on the bottom, it's even easier to ride upwind, doubling the number of jumps during your session.
For 2024, Duotone reintroduces the renowned SLS construction. This innovative build incorporates Biax Carbon and Textreme Innegra, delivering explosive pop and a refined flex pattern while keeping weight to a minimum. The Jaime SLS boasts exceptional durability and is capable of handling various scenarios, whether it involves landing after a high-flying big air trick or mastering hardcore freestyle maneuvers. Thanks to the carbon composition, the Jaime SLS exhibits a slight increase in stiffness compared to the 'standard' Jaime, resulting in a faster and more playful feel. Additionally, the 'angled fins' make a return, strategically positioned to enhance grip and facilitate upwind riding. This design improves pop, coupled with the entirely new double-rocker line concept, ensuring record-breaking heights.
The Torsion Flex Cap, resembling a 3D cap, enables torsion along the length of the kiteboard. This unique feature allows the Jaime SLS to twist, providing enhanced heel-side grip, comfortable landings, and improved upwind performance. The kiteboard's rocker line adapts to the conditions. When riding with lower power, the board maintains a relatively flat profile for quick planning. In contrast, as the wind intensifies and demands greater control, the kiteboard flexes more, offering enhanced stability.
The flex tips absorb shocks and ensure smooth landings. Convenient grab rails are positioned in the middle of the rail, facilitating the practice of board-offs and even board-off kiteloops!
If you're a rider seeking a versatile, high-performance twin-tip, the new Duotone Jaime SLS is an outstanding choice. For those who prefer a slightly more comfortable ride with added forgiveness, the 'standard' Jaime is a better fit.
