What Duotone has to say about the 2019 Soleil Textreme
Designed for women by women, the Soleil Textreme is the high performance version of the Soleil, offering that extra bit of lightweight and bling.
The Soleil Textreme is completely new to the range, especially designed for kitesurfing women, offering that extra bit of performance due to the extremely light Textreme Carbon. The Space Flex Technology makes it even lighter than it anyway is, yet makes it durable and giving this piece of art that little bit of extra pop. The narrow outline is one of the reasons the Soleil is smooth even in rough conditions, making the ride always controlled and comfortable. The Carbon Beam construction provides the board with a lively feel that is very reactive to rider input. Rail to rail carving is a dream while the pop is impressive. The softer flex in combination with the Space Flex Technology ensures the ride is smooth, even on the choppiest of days and the Step Mono Concave bottom gets you going early. Of course also the Soleil Textreme is equipped with the new rail handles, making handling of the board easy and helps you with this extra grip for any kind of grabs and board offs. With the Soleil Textreme you get a female specific board which performs at any time on the water, but also could be art decorating your house. Either way, you´ll always have a smile on your face using the Soleil Textreme.

Step Mono Concave
The Step Mono Concave is the fastest and easiest to ride bottom concepts. It can be carved easily through turns and always delivers the right grip. It planes early, allows smaller fins and helps to go upwind with ease.
Space Flex Technology
Space Flex adapts to the water´s surface and enhances all turning characteristics. Stiff outside frame coupled with the soft tips creates smooth water release and early planing. Reduction in swing weight facilitates easier tricks and faster rotations.
The special shape of the 3D cap allows torsion of the long axis of the board. This gives them more grip on the heel-side edge, rich and smooth landings, a direct drive and better upwind performance. Invented by Duotone.
Textreme Carbon Construction
The Select Textreme, Jaime Textreme, Soleil Textreme and Spike Textreme are made using a full carbon construction, which showcases all of our expertise in Twintip design. To achieve the best possible performance, each line has an individual carbon layup with a special focus on lightweight and liveliness. To achieve the maximum weight reduction the top deck uses the patented Spread Tow Fabric. On the bottom a 45-degree diagonal Biax Carbon is employed to guarantee maximum pop and grip.
Grab Rails for easier board off manoeuvres and comfortable general riding.
Soft Flex boards are the most friendly and “easy to use” boards in our range. The Soft Flex option is forgiving and simply fun to ride, even if you are an inexperienced rider. However, the Soft Flex option is also suitable for more lightweight riders.
