Duotone Echo Foil Wing
A wing for powered riding in all conditions, perfect for freeriding, light wind, waves and freestyle! The perfect wing for even the very first days on the water. The Duotone Echo is the evolution of Duotone's first foil wing. The dynamic concept featured a boom, window and battens offering a superior experience. For 2020 our design team has worked hard to enhance your feelings on the water and above it! A huge advantage of the Echo compared to softer wings, is its super stiff profile, achieved by the boom, battens and the new draft control rope. This unique invention causes a stabilization of the profile, by taking advantage of the ridge boom structure and results in a consistent load distribution and a continuous performance. In light winds, the stiff profile, the battens and the draft control rope, make it easy to actively get going, even in the slightest breeze. All sizes have incredible low end, especially size 6 and 7 get you going in the slightest breeze. The leading edge has been stiffened to create a more rigid framework; this improves the wings jumping abilities, but also offers more control at speed and in powered conditions. Canopy tension has been increased, and the trailing edge/leech tension has been tuned as well. These improvements help airflow and reduce drag, giving the wing a better wind range and making it more stable when riding waves. The new boom utilizes an oval grip, making it more comfortable in the hands, hand positioning happens naturally and intuitive, keeping you in control at all time. The leading edge bladder has been reinforced to make it even more durable, and finally, there are now six sizes in the range! If you want the highest performing, most technologically advanced wing on the market, grab the Echo.

What's our two cents? For windsurfers crossing over to wing foiling, the Duotone Echo is very intuitive. The boom might be more natural for us but we find it makes harness line and hand placement so easy! For those who have never windsurfed and are getting into wing foiling - the Echo makes hand placement pretty intuitive and makes it easy to be precise. This wing is a powerhouse, trucks upwind, turns on a dime and is the closest feeling to flying a cambered windsurf race sail. We have really been liking the Duotone Echo and think you will too.
