A lightweight and simple wing that packs down small, making it perfect for riders who travel and value a straightforward, very stable setup with incredible drifting abilities!
The Unit is a wing that is perfect for waves, downwind and freeride. The team worked hard to create a shape that is incredibly stable when totally depowered, as when you’re using a wave’s energy and the wing is just flagging behind. One key element is maximum performance and smooth handling, even in strong and gusty conditions. When depowered, the lightweight construction guarantees a smooth drift, making surfing swell or waves so incredibly easy and comfortable. During floating before take-off, the Unit delivers plenty of power to get you up on the foil fast. The amazing maneuverability makes jibes, freestyle and cruising in waves absolutely effortless. An ergonomically shaped strut improves the overall handling and the EVA covered handles offer the best grip and comfort you could possibly wish for. The stiff leading edge, with both a firm Dacron material and an optimized diameter, is the best solution for optimum performance. Due to the clean, tight canopy with great trailing edge/leech tension, the Unit is a really solid construction with lots of power and stability, the big window ensures great vision and safety. Size 3.3 and 4 are equipped with 3 handles, holding the middle handle, the wing can be flown with only one hand which makes it amazing to fly in especially waves and downwinders. Size 5 and 6 are equipped with 4 handles, the 2nd handle counted from the front is balanced in a way it can be flown with one hand too. The two back handles are designed for the back hand.
The whole setup is designed for super easy rigging: just inflate and go, that’s it. It also packs down small and is perfect for taking on adventures. Don’t let the simplicity fool you though, the performance will impress. Whether you are wave riding, cruising downwind, or just starting your wing journey, the Unit has you covered. Balanced, easy to use, fast to set up and suitable for a wide range of disciplines the Unit is the wing to choose if you want the performance in a small package.
The Alenuihaha Channel has a foreboding reputation known as some of the most treacherous waters of Hawaii. Spanning almost 30 miles between the big island and Maui, reaching a max depth of 6,810 feet, “Alenuihaha” means “great billows smashing” in the Hawaiian language and is not a body of water to be taken lightly.
In July of 2020, 11-year-old Bobo Gallagher set out to cross the Alenuihaha Channel via Foil Wing. With the help of his family and huge community of supporters, many of who are renowned Hawaiian watermen, he successfully became the youngest person to cross the channel by personal watercraft and also the first person to ever do it via Foil Wing. To share the journey of this momentous feat, Bobo and his team will release a movie filmed during the crossing, coming out November 2020 called “A Boy’s Journey; Crossing the Alenuihaha”.

A wing for powered riding in all conditions, perfect for freeriding, waves, light wind and freestyle! The perfect wing for even the very first days on the water.
The Duotone Echo is the evolution of our first foil wing, which took the market by storm last year. Outselling many other brands, the dynamic concept featured a boom, window and battens offering a superior experience. For 2020 our design team have worked hard to enhance your feelings on the water and above it! A huge advantage of the Echo compared to softer wings, is its super stiff profile, achieved by the boom, battens and the new draft control rope.
This unique invention causes a stabilization of the profile, by taking advantage of the ridge boom structure and results in a consistent load distribution and a continuous performance. Especially in lightwind, the stiff profile, the battens and the draft control rope, make it easy to actively get going, even in the slightest breeze. All sizes have incredible low end, especially size 6 and 7 get you going in the slightest breeze. The leading edge has been stiffened to create a more rigid framework; this improves the wings jumping abilities, but also offers more control at speed and in powered conditions. Canopy tension has been increased, and the trailing edge/leech tension has been tuned as well. These improvements help airflow and reduce drag, giving the wing a better wind range and making it more stable when riding waves. The new boom utilises an oval grip, making it more comfortable in the hands, hand positioning happens naturally and intuitive, keeping you in control at all times. The leading edge bladder has been reinforced to make it even more durable, and finally, there are now six sizes in the range! If you want the highest performing, most technologically advanced wing on the market, grab the Echo, nothing else comes close.
