2021 Duotone Select Kiteboard
Sizes: 132cm / 135cm / 138cm / 141cm
A freeride machine that is fast, responsive and exhilarating to ride, with a shape and flex that cuts through chop like butter. The best Freeride board in Duotone’s lineup with the most comfortable ride in the range; the Select is there to make you look good on the water!
Freeriding has come so far in this sport; the Select was one of the first dedicated freeride boards on the market. Speed, response and pop are all qualities this board needs and the team has built that into its very DNA. Anyone who has ridden the Select will testify as to how good it is; if you haven’t ridden it yet, then you need jump on board.
The Carbon Beam and Biax Glass combine with the Torsion Flex Cap to give a medium to soft flex that creates an incredibly forgiving ride with an unbelievably smooth feeling through choppy conditions. The Space Flex tips flick the board off the water when you pop, and the Step Mono Concave base breaks the surface tension of the water for smooth landings. The outline of the board makes it perfect for carving, and if you want to have fun in the waves on a twin tip, this is the board that makes it easy.
Early to get planing and with amazing upwind abilities, the Select is fast and responsive every time you slip your feet into the straps. If you are looking for the ultimate freestyle machine, then look no further; you have arrived in the right place.

Premium Construction: The Premium Construction boards Jaime, Select and Soleil feature Carbon Beams, where parts of the glass fibre are being replaced by unidirectional carbon beams to noticeably improve the boards’ performance. This results in a faster and even more progressive flex for better pop and reduced weight.
Torsion Flex: 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.
Grab Rails: Grab Rails for easier board off manoeuvres and comfortable general riding.
Soft Flex: Soft Flex boards are the most friendly and “easy to use” boards in the 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.
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.
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.
