The Duotone Unit 2022 is a wave-oriented foil wing, offering easy handling and power on demand.
For 2022 Duotone brings some nice updates to its recently launched Unit wing. More than an update, it looks like a total revolution to us!
For the 2022 edition, the traditional textile handles of the wing have been replaced by 2 rigid long grab handles that resemble a boom split into two sections. These grab handles are screwed into a patch support installed on the middle strut (yes, they are removable) and offer the same benefits of a boom in terms of performance, power generation, and handling, all at a lower weight!
The canopy has also changed for 2022: the Unit's panels are now oriented in a new direction: lengthwise instead of front-to-back. This allows to create more tension in the front part of the wing where all the power and draft are. The power of the wind, being more concentrated in the front part, makes the wing generate an upward lift, which will help riders during technical tacks or jibes: you will be constantly lifted upwards!!!
The extra tension of the new canopy also reduces all turbulences while surfing a wave or the ocean swell.
The new 2022 Duotone Unit will be soon available in a DLAB version where the struts and the leading edge are made of the lighter and stronger Aluula material.

At WakeStyle, we're wing foiling enthusiasts and we especially like to surf!
We liked a lot the first version of the Duotone wing Unit for surfing waves, therefore we were really curious to get our hands on the new version...
Well, as we said in the introduction, you can consider the 2022 Duotone Unit V2 not as an improved version of the predecessor, but as a whole new wing. If you are into surfing, and particularly into hybrid wings, you definitely want to try the brand new rigid handles, which can give you the best of both worlds.
