Forget what you think you know about wings, the Unit D/LAB has arrived and sets a new benchmark of wing design. With over 15% in weight savings and 50% higher stiffness when compared to the original Dacron version, the performance of the Unit D/LAB will blow your mind.
Throwing convention out of the window, this is the latest offering carrying the prestigious D/LAB label which is synonymous with leading innovation and technology, breaking the boundaries of what was thought to be possible. The Duotone Laboratory uses the most cutting edge materials and design techniques, putting material and development costs aside with the sole focus on developing the ultimate product possible.
The Unit D/LAB is the first high-end wing to come out of the Duotone laboratory. Using the latest version of Aluula fabric in combination with new construction features reduces the weight and sets a whole new standard in lift, flex and response. The Unit D/LAB isn’t just a lighter version of the Unit; the performance has been significantly improved, allowing you to fly earlier, with more grunt getting you up on foil sooner. You’ll experience improved acceleration and higher upwind angles even in lighter winds. The wing generates incredible amounts of lift and power even in the slightest breeze, making foiling possible in close to no wind with the larger sizes while being able to fly higher, with extra hang time for jumps and additional lift throughout transitions.
The character of the Unit range is tailored for stable and effortless drift when riding waves and swell. With the comfort and control of our new rigid handles combined with the extra grunt and lift of the wing, the Unit D/LAB excels across disciplines from surfing waves, sending jumps all the way to freestyle and freeride.
The D/LAB version of the Unit is quite simply the best wing you can get your hands on!

GREAT STABILITY & UPWIND ABILITY
The stable profile with moderate dihedral and extremely rigid leading edge and strut offers a great deal of draft stability, power generation and direct respond on all course with excellent upwind ability.
- ALUULA FRAME
Aluula leading edge and strut for minimal weight and maximum performance. About 15% reduction in weight (entire wing) and about 50% higher stiffness.
- TIGHT CANOPY TENSION
Tight canopy tension with minimal flutter and stable draft position.
- MINI BATTENS
One small batten per side reduces flutter and drag to a minimum and support upwind ability and top end performance.
