The DUOTONE 2022 foiling range is looking really sharp in these four new product information videos from Duotone. The Kitesurfing Magazine test team will be checking out kitesurfing foils this fall during our annual head-to-head gear tests in Cape Hatteras, NC. Look for the full reviews in the Spring issue of Kitesurfing Magazine.
Duotone Kiteboarding Foil Spirit SLS 2022 Product Clip
The Spirit SLS is a true inspiration in the SLS (strong light superior) segment, offering an ultra-light carbon mast with a glued top plate and a carbon fuselage form fit connection system. A guarantee for speed and control. The Spirit SLS shows incredible maneuverability and also offers surprising stability at high speeds, making it a fast and fun toy for freeriding and around the racecourse. Its excellent pitch stability gives you the freedom to focus on tactics and how to beat your opponents. Due to the increased torsional stiffness, the feedback of the Spirit SLS is even more direct and predictable than at other foils. This Spirit SLS even offers the possibility to use it additionally for wake surfing and foil winging. The prepreg carbon construction is the latest in foil engineering, making it strong yet super light. A lightweight mast with a geometry focused on stiffness comes on top of this amazing package. The layup of course is also fully committed to lightweight, the weight of the top plate was also reduced. Every single part of the Spirit SLS was constructed to achieve the lightest combination possible, to reach highest speeds with the maximum of control. The Spirit SLS comes as a one-piece mast and plate. The mast connection is built for the best load transmission and force distribution, guaranteeing a fast, stable, drag optimized shape and design. In numbers: a 13% higher bending stiffness was achieved. A fourth front wing insert was added to be able to use even bigger front wings safely. Every single part of the Spirit SLS was constructed to achieve the lightest combination possible, to reach highest speeds with the maximum of control.
Duotone Kiteboarding Foil Spirit 3.0 2022 Product Clip
The Spirit 3.0 series is a solid Aluminium mast with a glued top plate. The Aluminium fuselage with embedded pocket for the mast connection and with two back wing positions is a smooth aerodynamic construction, with two different tuning options. The Spirit 3.0 Aluminium masts are compatible with all Spirit front and back wings. The new version of Spirit Aluminium masts offer a 5% drag reduction and therefore allow higher speeds with a lot of control due to the increased stiffness. The short fuselage offers very lively maneuverability, steering impulses are transmitted fast and direct. The increased torsional stiffness results in a more predictable feedback to the pilot. Due to the weight reductions, a total overall amount of 400g could be saved, the Spirit now also shines with a 5% higher bending stiffness and a 15% higher increased torsional stiffness! The Spirit 3.0 series, a stunning Aluminium solution with a lot of control and a guarantee for loads of speed!
Duotone Kiteboarding Pace 2022 Product Clip
The Pace 2022 is built in a completely new “precise molding technique”, built to last and nearly unbreakable. It comes with a four way track mount, easy and fast to connect to the mast. Its all-round freeride shape is quite forgiving and offering some extra volume for when needed to get going and when the wind is superlight. The high nose rocker and the big surface area avoid unnecessary nose dives and add to the easiness of use of the Pace. The Pace range is very versatile, offering smaller pocket style boards and also larger cruiser models, making it easy to find the right size for your preferred riding style and rider level. Flying upwind is of course one of the prime disciplines of the Pace, with optimized rails making incredible leaning angles possible. Multiple footstrap options are making it easy to find exactly the right positioning for your personal preferences. Built to stand the test of time this precision molding Pace construction is a guarantee for easiness of use, plenty of control and speed!
Duotone Pace SLS 2022
The Pace SLS is the board to fulfil your need for speed when freeriding, smashing the latest freestyle tricks or even challenging your friends and race opponents. A superlight prepreg carbon board, especially designed to be fast and in control, on the racecourse and in the air.
The Pace SLS is a completely new rigid carbon prepreg construction, a guarantee to achieve a very light, still durable board for such a dedicated carbon construction. The overall design of the board is not only shaped to be fast, but to have the most fun in all sorts of conditions and disciplines, therefore the lightweight construction is offering great feedback for speed, cruising or freestyle. This special design is offering quite some volume just in case you need it, a high nose rocker and a big surface area to make it as easy and comfortable to use as possible. These features in combination significantly increase the light wind performance and handling. Rails are optimized to achieve the best leaning angles and the craziest upwind performance possible. Technically this board is state of the art, coming with a Track Four Way Mount, an air valve to protect the carbon construction when traveling and multiple foot strap options for your personal stance preferences.
The Pace SLS is a foil package with which you will turn heads not only on the water but also at the beach!
