DETAILS

BLACK SERIES

La génération BLACK actuelle est fabriquée avec la technologie haut de gamme BONDED.TECHNOLOGY. Le tubage et l arc frontal sont pour ainsi dire « soudés » avec une colle spéciale emprunté au domaine de l’aéronautique. Pour plus de confort et un maniement ultra-simple, le BLACK est équipé de la poignée avant ifRONT 2.0 dont la courbure et la rigidité sont adaptées aux besoins du public visé. Le programme BLACK comprend deux courbures individuelles dont les deux petites tailles ont une PROGRESSIVE BENDCURVE moderne ainsi qu’un diamètre de tubage confortable, réduit à 28 mm. Toutes les autres longueurs possèdent une courbure classique et un tubage de diamètre 30 mm. Le système DOUBLE PIN LOCK, qui fixe la longueur du wishbone tout en empêchant la déformation du tube, contribue à la sécurité et au confort. Grâce à des courbures différentes, la série BLACK est utilisable avec presque tous les types de voiles de toutes les marques.
Nouveau : L’ensemble de la gamme BLACK est équipée de la poignée arrière iTAIL WAVE, dont le système breveté Loop-Loop-Go 2.0 garantit un alignement du bout absolument parfait.

THE LIGHTEST FRONT-END ON EARTH! 

The technical masterpiece which makes all Duotone booms even more functional: iFRONT 2.0 the latest front-end of the next generation.

It doesn’t just look slimmer and smoother, the iFRONT 2.0 is also a whopping 35% lighter than its predecessor! With 345 grams it is the lightest front-end on the market!

90% of all other booms on the market are equipped with the same front-end from China, which usually differs only in color or design details. Especially in major components we at Duotone are investing heavily in research and development to be far ahead of the competition. A prime example of this is the completely redesigned and absolutely unique iFRONT 2.0 front-end; it combines maximum ease of use with highest functionality, lowest weight and guaranteed durability.
For the first time the construction of the iFRONT 2.0 combines the advantages of both concepts in one front-end:

A Vertical stiffness: Unlike other front-ends we use 50% longer stainless steel axle-bolts which are directly connected to the side walls. Thus we obtain a maximum vertical/torsion stiffness, which results in an extremely direct connection/transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance).

B Horizontal flexibility: The partially recessed center of the collar gives the iFRONT 2.0 a kind of hinge function, so that the collar fits to any mast diameter without any gap (= very smooth on the mast and extremely slip resistant). We know of no other front-end that fits so smoothly around the mast and thus effectively protects the mast.

This exceptional fit is guaranteed on SDM as well as RDM masts as the iFRONT 2.0 can easily be adapted through the exchange of 2 different friction pads.

It is an open secret that different conditions require front-ends with different vertical/torsional stiffness so that the rig can develop its maximum potential yet the comfort doesn’t suffer. For this reason, we deliver the new iFRONT 2.0 in two different stiffness options that are tailored to the individual disciplines and requirements:

Stiffness I with 15% vertical flexibility has a very low flex for direct power transmission yet maximum control and comes with all RED, SILVER, as well as GOLD and PLATINUM (up to 170) booms.
Stiffness III with 0% vertical flexibility for uncompromizing torsion-stiffness and maximum performance on large sails comes with all GOLD and PLATINUM (190 and up) booms.
Of course, we remain true to our promise of long-term compatibility even with the iFRONT 2.0. Therefore it is 100% retro-compatible with older Duotone booms that can be upgraded and tuned.

MINIMUM WEIGHT AND UNMATCHED FEATURES! Especially on carbon booms most brands integrate the fittings into the tail-end to generate a clean look. We prefer external fittings to achieve 3 crucial advantages:

  1. Much lower weight
  2. Features and functions which no other brand can offer (see iTAIL.RACE.FITTING and iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING)
  3. If need be super easy to exchange

FRICTIONLESS ALIGNMENT PLUS EXCESS ROPE STORAGE! 

The iTAIL.WAVE fitting offers 2 revolutionary details:

A The patented LOOP.LOOP.GO 2.0 function guarantees an ideal 100% frictionless alignment of the rope!

B Instead of tying the excess rope around the tube you just wrap it around the integrated “bridge” at the bottom side – the cleanest and fastest solution ever!
