Duotone Slick

Duotone just released their new “one-for-all” wing, the Slick. Here’s everything you need to know…

The all-new Slick is designed around the Mini Boom concept, this offers some unique advantages over other wings on the market. This system gives you all the control of a boom, along with all the benefits of a centre strut. You get improved control over the profile and luffing stability, plus a much more integrated connection to the wing itself through the Mini Boom. You can choose between aluminium or carbon booms, and one size fits all the wings. Dihedral angles on wings are critical, the team spent a long time working out the best angle to offer the maximum stability when riding using the front handle. The canopy tension has been tuned to offer the maximum power with an absolute minimum of flutter. The window shape has also been refined to provide unrivalled visibility without making it larger than it needs to be.

The Slick is our latest project, and many riders will be impressed by the performance advantages, but why should you choose the Slick over the Echo or the Unit? The Slick is the versatile all-rounder in the range, being the most innovative and most advanced design out there. It is perfect for beginners and experts alike and is the go-to wing for most riders. If you want a wing that can do it all, is forgiving and easy to fly, while being packed with the latest technology and a perfect blend between simple and elaborate, the Slick is the ideal choice for you.

Best of both worlds – intuitive hand positioning and neutral drift plus depower
Due to the intuitive hand positioning, the handling of the wing is super easy. It offers a very neutral drift and plenty of depower.

Direct and efficient
The steering/handling of the Slick is very direct and the power delivery very efficient, without needing a lot of strength.

Better stability and upwind ability
Compared to previous models, the stability as well as the upwind ability are improved.

Mini boom on centre strut (one length fits all sizes)
The Mini boom connecting to the centre strut is offering a very easy handling and fits to all sizes.

Reduced wing-span
The overall wing-span is reduced to achieve an even easier handling of the Slick.

Updated window geometry for better visibility
The updated window geometry now guarantees better visibility in all sorts of riding situations.
