Duotone Slick Foil Wing - 2021
The Slick is the all new and most versitile wing from Duotone. It's the most up to date design that Duotone have put out and has taken all the key parts from their extensive research and development work. With an increased canopay tension which allows for maximum power and minimal flutter this is a wing that can be used in all conditions. The Slick has taken on a different shape compared to the Echo with a reduced wing span, this allows for more room when doing maneuvers, as well as this the wing can be held in a more upright position which again improves the efficiency of the wing and allows for an easier pump onto the foil.
The all-new Slick is designed around the Mini Boom concept, this offers some unique advantages over other wings on the market. This system gives you all the control of a boom, along with all the benefits of a centre strut. You get improved control over the profile and luffing stability, plus a much more integrated connection to the wing itself through the Mini Boom. You can choose between aluminium or carbon booms, and one size fits all the wings. Dihedral angles on wings are critical, the team spent a long time working out the best angle to offer the maximum stability when riding using the front handle.
The canopy tension has been tuned to offer the maximum power with an absolute minimum of flutter. The window shape has also been refined to provide unrivalled visibility without making it larger than it needs to be. The Slick is our latest project, and many riders will be impressed by the performance advantages, but why should you choose the Slick over the Echo or the Unit? The Slick is the versatile all-rounder in the range, being the most innovative and most advanced design out there. It is perfect for beginners and experts alike and is the go-to wing for most riders. If you want a wing that can do it all, is forgiving and easy to fly, while being packed with the latest technology and a perfect blend between simple and elaborate, the Slick is the ideal choice for you.
