Duotone Foil Wing
FEATURES: BATTENS, BOOM, WINDOW, HIGH PERFORMANCE, LEADING EDGE, SURF FEELING
The Duotone Foil Wing utilizes a boom-like strut for wing articulation, stability and for allowing tuning options. The Duotone Foil Wing also uses battens for wing efficiency, a window for safety, and will be available in 2, 3, 4, & 5 meter sizes.
DuotoneFoil Wing is here! All you have to do is give it a try and see how this fun new water sport feels and be one of the first ones to try it. Wings have been around for a while, however, with the evolution of surf foiling they finally offer a totally new way to enjoy the ocean. The Duotone Foil Wing has been in development for a couple of years, and the design team have tested countless prototypes in order to create the perfect shape. During this process, it quickly became apparent that there were numerous advantages to using battens in the wing. They help to keep it rigid, reduce flutter and consequently drag, making it much more efficient. By utilising a boom, you also get unlimited choices of hand placements and a much more rigid connection to the wing itself. This helps with control and power development. The boom is also adjustable so it can be used with all of our foil wings. Particular attention was paid to the leech tension and shape; this area of the wing not only helps with upwind ability but also aids power control when pumping the wing and the foil. The Duotone Foil Wing has been fine-tuned to offer excellent responsiveness to rider input, and it is also incredibly light, giving you plenty of control on the water. The Duotone Foil Wing is taking foiling in a new direction where the only boundaries are your own imagination. All that is left for you is to take flight and enjoy the ride!
Key Features Of Duotone Foil Wing
- Adding battens improves wind range. A batten-less canopy that flaps a lot is a canopy that has a lot of drag. This drag makes the wing harder to handle in high wind and so reduces the wing‘s wind range.
- Adding stability in the canopy and reduces flattern to a minimum
- Give better upwind ability and therefore better for safety and versatility and increase top-end
Gives the best ease of use and highest level of performance.
You choose the position of your grab on the boom, even if it just a few millimeters
Easily sliding hands to the correct position allows the rider to more easily balance load on arms perfectly.
Stabile/stiff feeling of the wing, no flexing
More solid connection tot he wing and so more effective pumping
Compatibility with every wing size due to length adjustment
One size boom fits all sizes of Duotone Foil Wings
Saves weight, bulk and cost
Our first prototypes had (like the Duotone iRig) an inflatable strut (or struts) and webbing handles. We quickly evolved to a version in which the inflatable center strut was enhanced with a pvc tube (boom) that attached to the strut.
WINDOWS ARE SUPER HELPFUL AND AN IMPORTANT SAFETY BENEFIT, WHETHER YOU‘RE CRUISING AROUND IN TRAFFIC OR SURFING SWELLS DOWNWIND.
A HIGH PERFORMANCE PRODUCT, YET SIMPLE TO USE AND DUE TO THE LIGHT WEIGHT CONSTRUCTION, A VERY EASY AND SAFE HANDLING.
THE LEADING EDGE AND LEECH DESIGN ENSURE INCREDIBLE UPWIND ABILITY.
ENJOY THE FOIL-SURF FEELING EVEN IN FLAT WATER.
