Here it is the 2023 Duotone Unit for it's 3rd version and we could not be happier and stocked about this foil wing !!! For 2023 the Duotone Unit comes with a revolutionary canopy material called MOD3, a real game changer. Immediately you will notice that the MOD3 material will make this wing way more efficient than the previous version, expect better power, hang time and drift abilities. Paired to the rigid handles the handling is super direct with maximum efficiency. The new MOD3 fabric of the canopy has been designed with double strength in warp direction and 3 times*the stretch resistance compared to traditional ones. But it’s not only the canopy that makes the 2023 Unit one of the best wing to date. Duotone 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 window design is taken by the Slick Sls and assures clear visibility with the least weight impact.

We have ridden the new Duotone Unit V3 and we can say that you will feel improvements when compared to the previous model. The biggest improvement come from :
Mod 3 material: The new Mod 3 material used on the canopy, makes the wing way stiffer and powerful and there is not a single part of the wing flapping in the wind, even though should be heavier, it' was not noticeable ( we tested a 5mt in 15-22knt wind). Many other brands like F-One opted for a thinner canopy material and as result you have a light wing but with way more stretch of the canopy and a result flapping wing that won't last long. Looks like The canopy of the Duotone Unit will not deteriorate after a couple of seasons keeping an awesome second hand value !
Center grab handle: What we liked also is the upgraded grab handle on the leading edge, got wider and stiffer, it is very nice to hold while surfing waves.
Positive lift: the lift created by the wing helps big time during transitions and obviously for jumps!
Neutral behaviour: from the very first moment you fly this wing, nothing strange or unwanted happens, the power is smoothly created and all gusts are very well absorbed, once in neutral position on the wave, the Unit is not moving at all so you can focus purely on the surf.
Less tiring: although the power is always ready to be unleashed, the Unit is not physically demanding. What was remarkable in our test is that we used the wing with winter gloves and we never had any forearm pump, this means you can enjoy more hours on the water!!!
In few words: the 2023 Duotone Unit wing is a power house that performs well in all conditions, from wave riding, freestyle and will suite also beginners.
