2021 Duotone Wam SLS Kite-Surfboard

The Wam SLS remains at the cutting edge of high-performance surfboard design, and the new construction takes things even further. This classic looking shape has a lot going on under the hood, from the wide point forward design to the squash tail and the channels underneath. All of these aspects are designed to offer you the maximum speed on the wave, in any given condition, but to couple that pace with total control. These attributes are what makes it so versatile too, from small onshore conditions to firing down the line fast waves the Wam SLS can offer you exhilarating performance and unrivalled confidence to pull your turns in the most critical sections. The board is the go-to surfboard of choice for our team riders competing on the GKA World Tour, thanks to its fast, lively and agile feel. It offers them the perfect balance from fast drawn out carves to radical vertical turns on the face. Even when the waves are weak, there is plenty of power on tap, and lots of speed to be gained when you drive the board from the feet through the turn. If your wave riding takes you to a myriad of different spots, and you want a board that can perform to the highest level at all of them on any given day, then the Wam SLS is the answer.

Innegra Shield:
  • The innovative Innegra Shield vastly increases durability and impact resistance, making the SLS boards significantly more resilient against cracks, dings and heel dents. Weight is reduced by replacing fiberglass with lightweight Innegra fiber. The impressive damping properties of Innegra reduce resonance, ensuring a smooth ride even in the choppiest conditions.

Traditional polyurethane foam surfboards have very low frequency vibration and excellent damping properties, but very slow reflex, resulting in a loss of energy and "spring" through turns. EPS foam/epoxy boards on the other hand have excellent reflex and spring, but often feel very harsh due to their high frequency vibration. Our Innegra shield has the quick reflex and spring of an epoxy board with the low frequency vibrational damping of PU, combining the highest level of performance with the smoothest ride possible.

Innegra shield boards are up to 100 g lighter, yet more durable and more dent resistant
PU foam boards offer excellent damping, but lack the quick reflex of EPS/epoxy.
EPS/epoxy boards have the quickest and most explosive reflex, but feel too harsh.
Innegra shield combines the quick reflex of EPS/ epoxy with the excellent damping and comfort of PU.

SLS
  • Strong, Light, Superior
  • ADDICTED TO PROGRESSION AND INNOVATION

What Duotone has to say about SLS
  • This season we're taking our innovative drive to higher grounds; we proudly introduce SLS - Strong Light Superior. Since 2001, we have made it our mission to make the best kiteboarding equipment to guarantee that every single one of your sessions is the best. We created many groundbreaking innovations like the Click Bar, Textreme Technologies and Trinity TX. Now it's the time for SLS.
  • Whenever you see the SLS logo on a product, you'll know, we put it there for a reason. SLS products are equipped with the newest, most innovative and simply best materials available for kiteboarding. This is the gear we want to ride, tuned to the millimeter over countless hours. Just so that we are 100% satisfied, to know that we're offering the greatest experience you could ever have with your gear. This is our magic collection which makes us smile just thinking about it and leaves butterflies in our stomachs, even after we've packed up and headed home for the day.

Duotone SLS Philosophy:

We are Ken, Kite Designer. We are Elsa, Product Manager. We are Patrick, Marketing Manager. We are the designer agonizing over the drawing table. We are the manufacturer checking specs. We are the shaper glassing into the night. We have always strived to create the best gear for the most riders.

But when we're not working, we're playing. And sometimes we want to build gear just for us. When we're on the water we don't care about excel lists, market analysis, or productivity levels. On the water the only metric is performance. We want the absolute best kite gear that technology, materials, and design can produce. Bar none.

If you are like us: always pushing yourself and your gear to the edge, pushing past that point, redefining what is possible and still demanding more; more from yourself and more from your gear: If you are one of us, we have something to show you:

This is SLS.
SLS is more than Strong. SLS is more than Light. SLS is more than Superior.
SLS marks a change in thinking. Forget case studies and hitting price points. Stop measuring what the masses want. Design something for those who will sacrifice nothing for the ultimate performance.

SLS is truly the apex of what is possible today. Using materials both stronger and lighter than those previously available, we are proud that any product bearing the SLS monogram truly is superior to anything else available.

SLS is not about creating the most accessible gear, maximizing sales or creating turnover. SLS is about creating the dream gear for those who, like us, appreciate gear that enables them to redefine what they are capable of.

We are Duotone. We work. We play. Hard. SLS defines the point at which those two drives meet. Where expectations of what is possible are met by what we can achieve. SLS is where your dreams meet our reality.

WHY SLS?
SLS represents another dimension of innovation, product design and quality. A concept focused on the newest, most innovative materials, our SLS products are the pinnacle of visionary constructed solutions and performance driven engineering in kiteboarding.
