Wam D/Lab Features
CONTEST BOARD OF CHOICE
The Wam D/Lab is the go-to board for Duotone's Pro Team at events; the board's ability to handle a wide range of conditions makes it the perfect choice for getting on the podium.
CONTROLLED BOTTOM TURNS
The rails and shape combine to give you lots of grip and control during the bottom turn, helping to build confidence in your riding.
EXPLOSIVE TOP TURNS
When you hit the lip at speed, the shape allows you to snap off the top with aggression, chucking buckets has never been easier.
REFLEX MEMORY FOAM SHOCK ABSORBER
The Reflex Memory Foam Shock Absorber offers superior comfort in choppy conditions. When landing aerials, it also has a memory, which means small heel dents you create are minimized, making the board look better for longer.
The Innegra Shield completely wraps around the whole board; this provides unrivaled protection from everyday knocks and scrapes and keeps your board looking fresh.
The Carbon Beam injects a high level of response and flex, making the board feel alive underfoot.
RMF SHOCK ABSORBER
Duotone's new RMF (Reflex Memory Foam) Shock Absorber in combination with the Innegra Shield offers decisive technical advantages over the Cork Shock Absorber found in our SLS range. First, it is lighter, without affecting the overall strength of the board. Second, it has memory; if you put a small heel dent in the board, the foam will push the dent out over time, giving you a lighter board that stays looking fresh for longer. D/LAB boards feel more responsive on the water thanks to the reduced weight and the remarkable damping effect that drastically reduces high frequency vibrations, giving these boards a smooth and forgiving feel to inspire your confidence when attacking the lip and landing huge airs. The choice of our World Champions in any kind of surf.
Innegra is the reason for the predictable feel of a polyurethane surfboard, combined with liveliness, durability, dent resistance and incredible light weight. The weight reduction was achieved by replacing fiberglass with Innegra.
Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.
LIGHT TEAM CONSTRUCTION
Duotone is using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that Duotone no longer uses a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!
Using bamboo in their surf boards, Duotone takes full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help Duotone to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!
All boards now come with Duotone's own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using Duotone's high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.
