Duotone Slick SLS Wing
Freeride / Freestyle / Wave / Downwind
The new generation of Slick wings combine the Strong / Light / Superior (SLS) technology with a multitude of design and performance upgrades.
The most popular model in the range is now lighter with more lift and stability resulting in a wing that’s easier to use with a smoothness that will make you want to stay on the water for hours!
PentaTX material across the leading edge and strut delivers precise, responsive feedback to your fingertips. PentaTX has been a game-changer within Duotone’s Kiteboarding department. It’s not only lighter but also stiffer resulting in crisper, more direct feedback.
The segmented leading edge has allowed designer Ken Winner to increase the stiffness and rigidity across the mid-section through the use of stronger material, resulting in direct power transfer and a highly responsive wing.
The Slick SLS features the mini boom, giving you infinite hand placement options. The intuitive mini boom allows your hands to always be in the right spot for any moves you’re about to tackle, whether you are trying your first tacks or the wildest air rotations.
For 2022, the Slick SLS has been completely re-designed with a new outline. This sees improvements to the luffing stability while surfing waves and during downwinders and adds power and hang time for jumps. The Slick SLS is great for rotational moves and has been engineered to give enough clearance to reduce the dragging of the wingtips.
A new window layout reduces weight while maintaining visibility to any blind spots.
The tips and strut twist have been tuned to maximize the lift and stability with a tight canopy tension and a clean profile making it easy and stable to ride one-handed even in gusty conditions.
The mini boom is available in both Aluminium or Carbon options and is compatible with the first-generation Slick wings.
Whether you’re just starting and learning the basics or going for pro-level moves, the Slick is an intuitive wing packed full of performance that guarantees you quick progression!
Key Features of the Duotone Slick SLS
Asy for tacks, lifty for jumps. Various design features give the new Slick SLS a positive lift, which gives you an easy and light feel through basic moves like tacks and jibes, but also improves hang time.
Perfect for quick rotations. The Penta TX leading edge and strut gives the wing a crisp and fast response to your steering, which has benefits for pumping, acceleration and all sorts of freestyle riding.
Moderate Wing Span
Easy to handle for all sizes of riders. The new Slick SLS has become slightly wider in span, which helps drift stability and power delivery, yet it still features a more compact outline than the Unit.
Light, neutral and effortless on the wave, with an incredibly stable center of effort while going through gusts and lulls.
Slick SLS Foil Wing Tech Features
Duotone's innovative Mini Boom 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.
