Please welcome… a completely redesigned version of the Unit wing!
The Duotone Unit 2022 is a wave surf foil wing, characterized by easy handling and power delivery.
For its second version, the Unit V2 has been completely redesigned, read more below.
New Grab Handles
The traditional textile handles you were used to find on a Duotone wing have been replaced by 2 rigid long grab handles, that pretty much resemble a boom split into two different sections. What’s this? Well, these grab handles offer the same benefits of a rigid boom in terms of performance, power generation, and handling, but all at a lower weight!
For better control and reliability, the boom/handles are screwed into a patch support and are therefore removable.
The 2022 Unit’s panels are now oriented lengthwise instead of front-to-back. This results in more tension in the front part of the wing, where all the power and draft are. The power of the wind is so more concentrated in the front part of the wing, that now generates an upward lift, which will help riders during technical tacks or jibes.
There’s no better way to describe it than saying that you will be constantly lifted upwards dude.
This extra tension on the canopy also reduces turbulence, which comes in particularly handy while surfing waves.

2022 Duotone Unit Review:
The Duotone wing Unit is an advanced tech foil wing particularly apt for surfing waves. If you like hybrid wings, you will probably like this new boom/handles setup, that can give you the best of both worlds.
