Duotone Foil the new funny way to enjoy the water sports


Surely you have already seen images and heard news about this product that is being the toy of the year for all lovers of water sports, which has been gaining ground thanks to the evolution of the Foil throughout the world.

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. 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 and navigate upwind with great performance. You stabilize it and adjust it to your comfort and convenience, letting the wind take you to discover new sensations with this fun water sport.

It is also incredibly light, giving you plenty of control on the water. You will see yourself flow over the waves with ease and lightness. And an extension of your body and its ability to respond is excellent at the levels of initiation ..You put the limits! 

The esthetics of the Duotone Foil Wing is wonderful and you can choose up to 5 different colours, although availability is limited. Duotone's recommendation regarding wing sizes and wind range are as follows:
 
  • 2 m2 - 22 to 35 knots
  • 3 m2 - 20 to 30 knots
  • 4 m2 - 14 to 22 knots
  • 5 m2 - 10 to 17 knots
Duotone Foil Wing all models

The most versatile of all is that of 4 m2, this is the one we recommend in general if you not live in an area of strong winds and want to start using this “toy” making the most of it.

All the wings come with the adjustable boom of 115 to 175 cm, which you can keep if you want to change size later, or expand your wing quiver.
 

Duotone Foil Wing features:

The Foil Wing is similar to a kitesurf wing in terms of materials and construction, redesigned like a delta wing shape. By using the same construction technology as kites, you already know that with Duotone you have the highest quality in this aspect. The rest you put it, and without a doubt, as you use it, you will advance until you become a Foil Wing expert. Some outstanding features of the Duotone wing are:

BATTENS

They offer stability on it deck and reduce resistance to a minimum. The battens help the Foil Wing in its ability and action against the wind, improving safety and versatility.

WINDOW

Windows are super helpful and an important safety benefit, whether you´re cruising around in traffic or surfing swells downwind.

WING GEOMETRY

Foil Wing in use
Is helpful for keeping the lower wingtip out of the water and for stabilizing the Foil Wing during both, straight-line riding and transitions. The opted dihedral angle gives a good blend of power and stability.

BOOM SILVER SERIES

Is compatible with every wing size due to length adjustment. For take-off power and efficient pumping of the wing. The rider has a stiff and strong connection to the wing.

WRIST LEASH

There is a specific wrist leash, which you can get if you think it is necessary, to ensure that the wing does not escape you. It is an interesting security element.

TRIM OPTIONS

Another advantage of the Foil Wing is that the adjustable boom makes it possible to vary the shape of the wing, so that in a same Wing measure we can vary the curvature of the same to adapt it to the wind. The recommendation is as follows:
LIGHTWIND SETTING
By shortening the boom to a maximum of two holes, the profile of the Foil Wing becomes more efficient. The light wind performance is enhanced.
MEDIUM SETTING: 
Is the standard setting, combining the best of two worlds.
HIGHWIND SETTING:
By extending the boom op two holes, the profile of the Foil Wing can be flattened and therefore depowered. This will extend the range of use in high winds and increases the upwind ability.

Suitable foil boards to use the foil wing:

Now you can enjoy Foil Wing and get your most creative side in the water. Just need to have under your feet the best material compatible with this Duotone product depending on your level and progression.

Fanantic SKY SUP

The Sky SUP is not only the first choice for SUP Foiling with a paddle in your hands, it´s also a great board with the Foil Wing! Width and volumen gives plenty of stability, while the step tail and compact shape makes it easy to pump the board put and up on the foil. Todos los tamaños son perfectos para aprender a usar el Wing Foil. If you have experience with the foil we recommend the 6’3” since it is the most manageable, and if you start or are a big rider, you can use the 6’11”.

Fanatic SKY SURF

The Sky Surf – especially the new 5´11¨ is the next level for the advanced Wing Foiler! The starts is more tricky compared to being on a Sky SUP, but once up you´ll unleash all the benefits of riding a smaller & lighter board.
