I see that the North brand is probably going to come out with a new range around August 2020.

Based on previous years when does the team from Duotone usually start releasing its new range?

Hi Darbid,

Duotone has had our dealer meetings and most stores that stock same, will have demo's and information about the new gear. Kites and ION gear usually arrive first in late August and boards and surf within a week or so. New range has some big upgrades worth checking out.
A new awesome foil range, the wind wings, tweaked kites and boards. Surfboards have had an overhaul and a new model (Pro Fish), loads of other great stuff that we aren't allowed to show you online. But we have pics and info in stores.

Or worst, depending how you look at it. Like making a 12.9m2 kite and calling it a 12m.

Theyre not going to write 12.9 on a kite. And theyre not going to lie and put 13.

You have mental problem

Awesome thanks. I have also heard that the kites will come out starting in August but most likely will be available in Sept/Oct.

So do the valves still peel off if it gets over 28 degrees or did they fix that when they changed names ??

I don't think they have been peeling off since 2007 or so. I owned, 2008, 2009, 20010, 2016, 2017, North kites and no issue whatsoever. I just sold my 2016 Dice, it went from -30C to +34C (within 24 hours I kid you not) with no valve peeling off.

I love how people isolate brand manafacture quality when so many of the brands had the same bladder supplier.

In saying that, I haven't heard of these issues since 2017.

saw a heap of North and Duotone kites in Egypt with regular high 30 degree days and I was not aware of that problem.

... yep, that old chestnut,,, valves falling off,,, a long gone problem thank the gods.

Living/kiting in a place that is lucky to get below 30 degrees C (with high humidity too I might add), we haven't had problems with pealing valves on the Norths since 2011!

Having said that, we've had other brands failing, not as epidemic as the pre 2010 North's though but no one brand seems immune!
