Team Rider Review

Team Rider: Ulf

"I have tried the 4.5M Slick DLab in underpowered, overpowered and in appropriate wind conditions, mostly in waves from small to large. I ride a Appletree Jazz 40L, or 62L. This is by far the best wing I have ever tried and has noticeably improved characteristics even over the Dlab Unit. Most outstanding features in order of degree of distinguishable characteristics:

1) Tacking; the wind flies through tacks without ever losing traction, there is never any backwinding or stalling, even in very strong winds tacking into the wind there seems to be no resistance only a helpful lift. Through a tight tack, the wing flips like during a jibe.

2) Upwind; the wing never backwinds even when trying to push upwind to see what happens. When pushing excessively upwind the wing will try to make you tack. Hence the upwind angles are amazing and very comfortable to ride.

3) Jumping; amazing lift and soft landings even with the relatively small size of 4.5M.

4) Balance; the wind flies on the leash in any wind strong or weak.

5) Wave riding is amazing because the wing adjusts to the direction of the wind and rides by itself.

6) Starting on a sinker is also particularly easy, what really helps is the instant lift but also the boom. The smaller diameter boom is certainly worth the investment.

7) One-handed powered riding is very easy, certainly partially courtesy of the boom.

8) Amazing speed and more important acceleration, very easy to pump up and amazing to sail through lulls.

9) Its very solidly constructed and the solid connection of the boom is of particular notice.

I know this all seems to sound too good and it kind of defies logic that the other wings have drawbacks in most of these departments. Professionals make any of these wings look great. For the regular customer who needed all the help I can get this wing has it all. I was flying the Slick SLS last year and it was amazing, the Dlab has certainly improved on that amazing standard. I have tried at least 4 other wings and none of them come even close."


Duotone Slick D/Lab

Freeride / Freestyle & Jumps

The Slick D/LAB has arrived! Duotone's latest Freeride & Freestyle Wing with Mini Boom (sold separately) comes with the power, lightweight and unmatched performance from our prestigious D/LAB technology - delivering a riding sensation beyond imagination!

The new design brings increased lift, power and hang time and when combined with the most cutting-edge materials and construction techniques, the result is truly mind-blowing.

The Slick D/LAB powers through lulls and rides through gusts with unrivalled balance and stability. Early take-off and incredible lift and hang time in jumps are just two of the Slick D/LAB's outstanding characteristics. With a stable draft position and its huge wind range, the Slick D/LAB is easy to rotate through the latest Freestyle tricks, gets you up effortlessly on the foil in the lightest breeze and has predictable control even in the gustiest conditions.

With the use of Aluula in the leading edge and strut, combined with Duotone's unique MOD3 canopy, designer Ken Winner has crafted an incredibly light wing with instantaneous response. With direct power when pumping, more lift, higher jumps and quicker rotations, the Slick D/LAB excels in every metric.

The low stretch character of the higher modulus MOD3 fabric maintains the wing's shape and profile even when riding through changing wind conditions. During gusts you’ll feel pure acceleration, allowing you to ride without needing to adjust your hands or riding position.

The durability and longevity of the MOD3 canopy are significantly improved when compared to standard ripstop fabrics, keeping the wing fresh from day one.

The deep profile and refinements to the strut and wing tips have resulted in maximum lift and provide forgiving and consistent power delivery with a remarkably stable flying behavior in different riding angles and wind strengths.

With two well-placed windows on each side of the wing, you’ll be passing and overtaking riders with good visibility and no blind spots.

You'll be amazed at how light and effortless the Slick D/LAB feels and follows your line when held by the newly refined front handle.

Best matched with Duotone's carbon Platinum or Platinum SLS boom (sold separately) - the Slick D/LAB is your ultimate ticket for performance Freeride and powerful Freestyle action.



Key Features

  • Lightest Weight
    Aluula Frame for minimal weight and maximum performance. With about half the weight of standard Dacron and about 50% higher stiffness the Aluula leading edge and strut make the Slick D/Lab extremely performant and about 15% lighter. 


  • Fast Response
    The refined reflex as well as the revised wing tip angle give the wing a more constant power delivery and a fast response. 


  • Mini Boom (sold separately)
    Direct steering with infinite hand placement. The mini boom allows you to place your hands wherever you want, which is a massive plus from learning the basics to the most advanced freestyle moves. 


  • More Power
    Deeper and more precise profile design provide more power and smoother response to gusts. 


  • Moderate Wing Span
    The 2023 Slick comes with a moderate wing span, which helps drift stability and power delivery, yet it still features a compact outline, which helps smaller riders to keep the tips clear. 


  • Positive Lift
    Easy for tacks, lifty for jumps. Various design features give the Slick D/Lab a positive lift, translating in easy and light feel through all sorts of maneuvers and jumps. 


Tech Features


    • More power
    • More direct response
    • Better pumping efficiency > goes earlier
    • Better draft stability
    • Increased durability > no wearing out
    • Harder to break

    • Modulus of MOD3 is twice as high in warp direction
    • 3x as stretch resistant in bias direction (7x less stretchy at lower loads)
    • Much higher shape holding ability compared to traditional (Kite) canopy (the canopy of Wings is exposed to about 2x the load per surface area compared to the canopy in Kites)

    Two small battens per side reduces flutter and drag to a minimum and support upwind ability and top end performance.


    Optimized window layout for improved stretch behaviour, weight and visibility.


    Segmented front tube for a rigid centre with smooth flex behavior.


    Duotone's Mini Boom (sold separately) on center strut design combines the best of both worlds in one wing – infinite hand placement and ease of handling for all types of freeride and freestyle moves, with neutral drift and floating ability of a strut wing for effortless surfing and downwinders.



    The Slick D/Lab is easy and fast to set up and packs down small. The new backpack makes packing and carrying your Slick D/Lab as easy as it gets and stores your wing in style.
