The Duotone Echo is the evolution of the first foil wing, which took the market by storm last year. Outselling many other brands, the dynamic concept featured a boom, window and battens offering a superior experience. For 2020 the design team has worked hard to enhance the feel 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 predictable performance.
In lightwind, the stiff profile together with the battens and the draft control rope, make it easy to 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 air ow and reduce drag, giving the wing a better wind range and making it more stable when riding waves.
The new boom utilises 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.
Finally, there are now six sizes in the range !
– 2.6 /3.3 /4.0 /5.0 /6.0 /7.0
If you want the highest performing, most technologically advanced wing on the market, grab the Echo,nothing else comes close.
Why have an aluminium boom
Duotone wing boom
By utilising an aluminium boom, the Duotone Echo Wing is the only wing guaranteeing amazing upwind performance due to a

much more rigid connection to the wing.
The ECHO foil wing is not only a great tool for downwinders, but it’s also possible to stay upwind.
Additionally the aluminium boom offers unlimited choices of hand placements, which helps a lot with control and power development.
The boom is also adjustable so it can be used with all of our foil wings.
Particular attention was paid to the leech tension and shape; this area of the wing not only helps with upwind ability but also aids power control when pumping the wing and the foil.
The Duotone Foil Wing has been fine-tuned to offer excellent responsiveness to rider input, and it is also incredibly light, giving you plenty of control on the water.
