DUOTONE Foil Wing


 
KEY FEATURES:


BATTENS- Battens increase the wind range and reduce flutter and drag.
BOOM- The integrated boom stabilizes the profile and offers unlimited hand placements.
WINDOW- Windows are super helpful and an important safety benefit, whether you?re cruising around in traffic or surfing swells downwind.
HIGH PERFORMANCE- A high performance product, yet simple to use and due to the light weight construction, a very easy and safe handling ride.
LEADING EDGE- The Leading Edge and leech design ensure incredible upwind ability.
SURF FEELING- Enjoy the foil-surf feeling even in flat water.

BOOM
? Provides the best ease of use and highest level of performance.
? Easy handling
? You choose the position of your grab on the boom, even if it
is just a few milimeters
- Easily sliding hands to the correct position allows the
rider to more easily balance load on arms perfectly.
? Stable/stiff feeling of the wing, no flexing
- More solid connection to the wing and thus 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.

DIHEDRAL - WING (UP) GEOMETRY
? of roll stability, which is helpful for keeping the lower wingtip
out of the water (the most common difficulty for beginners)
and for stabilizing the wing during both straight-line riding
and transitions
? This roll stability is most obvious when the Foil Wing is sheeted
in a bit or a lot, so the rider can always get better stability
by pulling in with the back hand. If the wind is strong,
just put the Foil Wing overhead (it will never just lift you up
the way a kite will) and sheet in a bit for great automatic
stability.
? Balanced dihedral angle opted for a good blend of power
and stability.

WINDOW
? Windows, of course. Alan Cadiz (HST), who was an early adopter,
an early master of the sport, and is the master instructor,
insisted on big windows. They?re super helpful whether
you?re cruising around in traffic or surfing swells downwind.

BATTENS
? 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 thus reduces
the wing?s wind range.
? Adding stability to the canopy and reducing flutter to a
minimum
? Providing better upwind ability and therefore better for safety
and versatility and increase top-end
