DUOTONE ECHO WING
Available to ship at once
The Duotone Echo is the evolution of our 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 our design team have 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. Especially in lightwind, 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 times. 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, nothing else comes close.
BATTENS add stability in the canopy and reduce flattern and drag to a minimum and therefore improves the wind range. It assists the Foil Wing in his upwind ability, for safety and versatility and increase top-end.
“THE ECHO IS THE FULL-FEATURED NATURAL EXTENSION OF THE FIRST AND ORIGINAL FOIL WING. DESIGNED WITH FREE-RIDE PERFORMANCE IN MIND, IT HAS MORE POWER FOR PUMPING AND FLYING UP ONTO THE FOIL, BUT BETTER DEPOWER AND HIGH END FOR HANDLING THE GUSTS.”
“THE ECHO IS THE ULTIMATE FREE-RIDE WING. THE RIGID BOOM MAKES IT THE BEST WING ON THE MARKET FOR MANEUVERING AND JUMPING AND IT’S THE ONLY WING ON THE MARKET THAT ALLOWS YOU TO ADJUST THE PROFILE FOR DIFFERENT WIND CONDITIONS.”
“THE ECHO TAKES IS THE NATURAL PROGRESSION FROM OUR FORMER MODEL. IT'S A SOLID PLATFORM THAT PACKS A LOT MORE POWER. THE BOOM GIVES A VERY INTUITIVE HAND PLACEMENT AND DIRECT FEEL FROM THE WING. NOT ONLY THE BIG SIZES ARE GOOD, THEY ARE REALLY FUN TO RIDE. THE ECHO OPENS UP A WHOLE NEW GAME BOARD ON THIS YOUNG SPORT!”
“WINGING IS EVOLVING IN BIG STEPS AT THE MOMENT AND THE NEW ECHO IS LEADING THE WAY. MUCH MORE SOLID AND STABLE COMPARED TO THE FIRST VERSION OF THE FOIL WING, YOU CAN REALLY FEEL THE AMOUNT OF R&D THAT WENT INTO THIS DEFINED PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.”
