2022 Duotone Unit

Wave & Downwind / Jumping & Freestyle / Freeride

The new Unit will impress you from the first flight. Light, lifty and stable, yet incredibly easy to handle and control with our new rigid handles.

Key Features:

Positive lift

Positive lift easy for tacks, lifty for jumps. The more segmented leading edge and panel layout allowed for optimized canopy tension and twist, resulting in positive lift even through gusts.

Flies on the leash

Neutral and effortless on the wave - flies on the leash. The Unit follows intuitive, light and stable when held on the front handle while surfing and during downwinders.

Great stability & upwind ability

The stable profile with moderate dihedral offers a great deal of draft stability, power generation and comfort through gusts and lulls, with excellent upwind ability.

Optimized window layout

Optimized window layout for safety and comfort with a reduction in weight. The new window position offers a better visibility and higher safety with reduced window area at the same time.

Rigid handles

Rigid handles for direct control. Our unique lightweight screwed-on handle solution offers boom-like comfort and control with direct steering and a grip range of 26cm per handle.

Tight canopy tension

Tight canopy tension and finely tuned wingspan. Slightly higher wing span adds higher drift stability, better power generation, lift and hang time in jumps.

 


Unit Details:

The new Unit will impress you from the first flight. Light, lifty and stable, yet incredibly easy to handle and control with our new rigid handles.

The design goal of the new Unit was simple, we wanted to create a wing with a stable drift that can follow you effortlessly without pulling left, right, up or down when depowered on the wave. At the same time, we wanted a wing that created more lift for improved hang time in jumps and easier handling in maneuvers, all of this combined with a boom-like control and steering. The results will blow your mind, the unit has proven to be our best performing wing to date with unrivalled flying performance.

The slightly wider span of the Unit offers great luffing stability when on the wave and significantly better hang time in the jumps. Yet the wingspan and dihedral still make it easy for less experienced riders, freeriding, cruising or rotational freestyle moves.
Increased segments to the leading edge and panel layout of the Unit have allowed designer Ken Winner to finely optimize canopy tension and twist. The new window layout has led to weight savings without compromising comfort and safety. Simulations on airflow have helped the final tweaks and attention to detail, giving the Unit such a light feel in your hands with an incredible lift through jibes and tacks and instant response when you need it!

Forget what you know about handle equipped wings, our new screwed-on rigid handle still covers pump-and-go simplicity but feels more responsive and direct than any handle wing you’ve touched.

From the superior flying behavior and handling all the way to packing down and the new bag the Unit wing ticks all the boxes to be your new favorite!
