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.

Improved front handle

Neutral and effortless while surfing on the front handle with improved drift stability.

Optimized window layout

Improved window design for safety and comfort.

More grunt

Improved power delivery with more grunt.

Details

With the new Unit 2023 we are starting a new era of wing design. Featuring MOD3, a new canopy that changes everything! The latest edition Unit offers more power, better hang time and improved drift stability.

From the first pump, you’ll notice the additional power MOD3 brings to the wing. With responsive handling through the rigid handles. The 2023 Unit gets you up in flight mode sooner, with an improved grunt and low end allowing you to use smaller-sized wings.

The higher modulus MOD3 fabric holds the shape of the wing with double the strength in warp direction and 3 times* the stretch resistance in bias direction compared to traditional canopies.

The small gain in weight becomes secondary once you feel the power, draft stability, and wide range of the new Unit. MOD3 remains fresh like its day one and significantly improves the tear resistance and canopy strength.

But it’s not only the canopy that makes the 2023 Unit our best wing to date. We’ve optimized the dihedral angle, as well as the tip and strut twist for better drift stability when surfing or flying through basic maneuvers. The extra lift and power deliver more hang time when jumping.

The stronger front handle with better stand-off is another detail that improves the surfing characteristics of the Unit range.

For better visibility Designer Ken Winner implemented the window layout from the Slick SLS to improve vision and overall safety at crowded spots with minimal impact on the lightweight structure of the Unit.

The lightweight rigid handles have become a benchmark in wing design for their direct steering and power transfer allowing the rider quick adjustments through its grip range combined with pump-and-go simplicity and minimal packing size.

Whether you love drawing flowing lines in the surf and open ocean swells, lift and hang time in tacks and jumps or simply like riding with extra horsepower in your engine, the 2023 Unit is yet again another step ahead of the pack!

* More than 7 times less stretchy at lower force.
