DETAILS

PLATINUM AERO 2.0 SERIES

Il vous fait envie, et vous le savez : le PLATINUM AERO 2.0 est le wishbone le plus léger du monde (140-190 : 1,95 kg, 190-250 : 2,70 kg !) et le nec plus ultra de la technologie, du poids et de la fabrication. Toutefois, compte tenu du coût incroyablement élevé de la fabrication, la quantité disponible en stock est très limitée. L’utilisation d’un mélange de matériaux de qualité supérieure et d’un procédé de fabrication unique lui confèrent une légèreté incroyable : 300 g de moins que sa version PLATINUM, pourtant déjà très légère. Malgré sa « maigreur extrême », le PLATINUM AERO 2.0 convainc par sa stabilité sensationnelle, son ressenti ultra-direct et ses fonctionnalités et courbures adaptées au domaine d’utilisation, qui en font un « must have » pour les navigateurs de haut niveau. Bien que l’AERO 2.0 ne soit disponible qu’en deux longueurs (140-190 190-250), ses caractéristiques de performances et d’équipement sont les mêmes que celles des PLATINUM normaux (voir ci-dessous). Nous nous devons toutefois de vous avertir : La haute technologie a un prix ; ne soyez pas pris au dépourvu.

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.

Wide Wave Tail Geometry
Wide Wave Tail GeometryWide Wave Tail Geometry

EQUAL LOAD ON BOTH HANDS AND IMPROVED HANDLING! Also the short booms now feature a 4 cm wider tail-end moving your back-hand further away from the sail. For the first time now your back- and front-hand are equally angled making sailing less fatigue. You immediately realize this much more relaxed sailing position no matter if going in a straight line or down the line on a wave. The second advantage is a much improved handling during ducking maneuvers.

Inside Gripped Tail

THE ULTIMATE TAIL-END GRIP! The EVA-gripped tail-end guarantees anti-slip. A reduced diameter of the inside tail-end additionally increases grip-comfort up to a maximum.

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!

FOR 20% INCREASED STIFFNESS OF THE BOOM! All PLATINUM RACE SERIES 190 and 240 booms feature the individual OUTSIDE.TAIL-END with an increased diameter. The high cross-section makes the boom 20% stiffer.

RIGGING WITHOUT THREADING – EVEN WHEN USING AN ADJUSTABLE OUTHAUL-SYSTEM! The ultimate highlight is the all new iTAIL.RACE fitting. The teflon-POM synthetics build rollers feature a minimum of friction. Additionally, this unique solution allows to loop the rope even when using an adjustable outhaul-kit!

External Tail Fittings

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
