Duotone’s Echo Foil wing is the evolution model of their original Foil wing – it is available in 6 sizes based around different wind ranges and body weights. The improvement has come from a more rigid frame and canopy which develops more low end power and more top end control per size. This has been designed by the new stability that comes from the bridle system, seam shapes and inflatable leading edge construction. The bridle system keeps the centre of effort forward which creates a better foiling platform for the rider and in gusts stops the centre of effort moving and the inevitable back foot pressure caused by this.
The new boom is ovalised which again increases stiffness – there is improved wind range on each size – so for an 80kg experienced rider a 7m wind range is 7-16 knots 6m 9-18 knots 5m 12-20 knots 4m 15-25 knots 3.3m 18-28 knots 2.6m 20-30 knots
When learning you probably want to plus 4-5 knots on the early planing side.
Boom size the small boom is 115-175 which fits 2.6m to 5m and then the larger boom 141-201 fits 4m up to 7m.
All the older 2019 Duotone foil wings are fitted with the 115-175 boom.
