Making the most sustainable Windsurfing rig products on the market

Sustainability is the most important and pressing challenge of todays mankind to secure a livable mother earth for future generations to come!

Over the last 50 years Windsurfing has developed into a super high tech sport. But let's face it despite what others might tell you with the exception of aluminium booms and extensions Windsurfing rig products are a "mixture of petrol-based plastics". And most of the time up to 100% of these plastics are non-recycled (means "freshly produced") plastics. 
At least as of today there are no eco-friendly substitutes existing for the structural components offering the minimum requirements necessary to design modern Windsurfing products. Or why do you think no one wants to sail with wooden booms, aluminium masts or stretchy sails made of woven fabrics anymore?
There is only one sustainable way out of this dilemma:

MAKING LONGER LASTING PRODUCTS (LONGEVITY = SUSTAINABILITY)
A high performance product that lasts longer and best case can even be put into additional use on the second hand market is the best and only way to conserve the resources of our earth.
Of course light components have a massive impact on the performance and handling of your rig. That's why light weight is always on our briefing list when designing and engineering new products. And DUOTONE products are among or in many cases are the lightest on the market.
But durability and longevity were and will ALWAYS be on top of our priority list. Our industry leading warranty extensions bear witness to this philosophy:
- 2 year unconditional warranty on almost every hardware product (masts, booms and extensions+bases).
- 5 year warranty on 80% of our sails.
On sails we cannot emphasize enough that especially reducing the thickness of the monofilm and the XPly laminate has a radical influence on the longevity/sustainability. Reducing the film thickness by 50% reduces the UV-stability by 70%. Just to shortterm impress magazine testers or customers some brands use up to 70% thinner laminates/films than we do. This is not our understanding of sustainability.

DOING MORE
However, since we are fully aware of the importance of sustainability, we cannot simply stop here.
>> Only we have stopped using any plastic for packaging our sails. This saves approx. 5 sqm of plastic film and foam per sail.
>> Only our aluminium products (booms and extensions+bases) are manufactured in a CO2 neutral production facility.
>> Only our aluminium products (booms and extensions+bases) are produced in Germany using 100% European raw materials in order to keep shipping distances (to our manufacture and then to our central warehouse) at a minimum.
>> Only our sail bags are made out of 100% recycled plastic.
>> Only we compensate all carbon emissions caused by our sails during manufacture and transport by supporting a hydropower carbon offset project in Sri Lanka, the country where our sails are produced.

DETAILS

SILVER.70 SERIES

70% Carbongehalt für ein sehr ausgewogenes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis. Alle SILVER.70 brillieren mit auffallend starker Overall Performance und geringem Gewicht, was erst durch die Verwendung von hochwertigstem Carbon und der Verarbeitung in aufwendiger AEROSPACE PREPREG TECHNOLOGY möglich ist. Alle RDM-Versionen sind technologisch feinste Needle Masten mit den dynamischen Vorteilen des schlanken Shapes (wird ohne RDM Adapter ausgeliefert). Die weiße POLY.SHIELD Beschichtung der Base verhindert jegliches Verkratzen oder möglichen Abrieb sowie thermische Überlastung. Dank etwas weiterer Wicklung im Bereich der Gabel gibt es keinerlei Verrutschen! Bei sofortiger Registrierung nach dem Kauf gewähren wir 2 Jahre uneingeschränkte Garantie, ansonsten nur die gesetzlich geregelten Ansprüche.

Segel-Mast-Kompatibilität

Wie funktionieren Segel anderer Marken mit Duotone Masten?

Schau was passt

Bei DUOTONE verwenden wir für unsere Masten eine Medium Constant Curve (unsere Biegeprozente liegen zwischen 61-63 unten und 75-77 oben, je nach Modell und Länge). Da diese Kurve innerhalb der Constant Curve Masten genau in der Mitte liegt, bietet sie die größte Kompatibilität aller Biegekurven. Dies macht unsere Masten und Segel zu den kompatibelsten auf dem Markt. 

Hier eine Aufstellung, die zeigt wie gut die Masten anderer Marken mit unseren Segeln funktionieren und umgekehrt:

  1. Challenger Sails, Ezzy, GA (ab 2017), Goya, Gun Sails, KA Sails, Loft Sails, Naish Sails, RRD, S2Maui, Sailloft, Sailworks, Severne (ab 2014): 80-90% (je nach Modell und Größe)
     
  2. Hot Sails, NeilPryde, Point7, Simmer Style: 70-80% (je nach Modell und Größe)
     
  3. Avanti, Gaastra (bis 2016), Maui Sails, Severne (bis 2013), Vandal: nicht kompatibel

Wanna know what's special about Duotone masts?

SENTEX TM RESIN - UP TO 30% LIGHTER AND MORE DURABLE

DUOTONE SENTEX masts are extremely light, incredibly balanced and are far superior to other masts in terms of handling and reflexes. Thanks to the revolutionary SENTEX material structure, they are also phenomenally durable and resistant to stress, which is why SENTEX is also used for the PLATINUM boom. 

WHAT’S THE SECRET?
SENTEX is a highly developed composite material used exclusively by DUOTONE. It contains the highest-quality Toray resins which, in combination with the carbon fibres, achieves unique durability while keeping weight to a minimum. SENTEX masts and booms are light as a feather in your hands and are far less liable to being broken. In addition, the masts have an outstanding level of reflex and the booms are extremely stiff.

THE MATERIAL
SENTEX is made from the highest-quality carbon fibres and resin impregnated with silicon nanospheres. This technology produces a unique material structure which is more stable and noticeably lighter than regular carbon. The key reasons for this are the two advantages of silicon nanospheres:

  1. The even distribution of nanospheres in the resin creates an extremely balanced rigidity across the entire mast length and ensures incredibly immediate and balanced reflexes.
     
  2. Silicon nanospheres deal with compression force better than any other material known. This makes our SENTEX masts and booms at least 30 % more resilient and durable than standard carbon products.

Because SENTEX is far more stable, not as much material is normally needed, which is why the products are lighter than similar models. More specifically, this means a weight saving of up to 20 %, which is exactly why all DUOTONE PLATINUM booms and RDM masts are the most lightweight in their class worldwide.

SENTEX TM RESIN - UP TO 30% LIGHTER AND MORE DURABLE
Carbon Fiber Qualities

THE essential quality criterion of carbon fibers when used for Windsurf masts is the bending-elongation of the fiber. The elongation measures the traction during bending until the fiber finally breaks. Carbon fibers are available with bending-elongation values between T300 and up to max T1000 with the T1000 carbon being 10-times as expensive as cheap T300 carbon. The lowest quality carbon fibers used on Windsurf masts have an elongation value of T300-400. This carbon has a bending-elongation that is just slightly higher than glass fiber. Therefore it’s used on cheap “low-percentage carbon masts” only.

For a Windsurf mast this means:
The higher the bending-elongation value of the carbon fiber raw material
→ The faster the reflex speed (which ultimately increases the performance of your sail, similar to increased horse power in a car)
→ The higher the breakage strength

Most brands nowadays use T400-500 for their top-level carbon masts. At DUOTONE we use T600 carbon for all BLACK masts, T700 for all SILVER and GOLD masts, T800 for all PLATINUM masts and T900 for the PLATINUM Aero 3.0 masts.

Another advantage of the high quality carbon fibers is that you can reduce the resin content. For example the T900 fiber used for the PLATINUM Aero 3.0 mast allows us to reduce the resin content by 30%. This results in the lightest mast on earth.
