Video using the 2020 Duotone ECHO wing, and at one point you can see someone using the Duotone UNIT wing which has a strut instead of a boom.


Another type of waterstart - like a kiting waterstart.

The DUOTONE ECHO wing. 5m

Klaas is also riding a new high aspect 1250 sq cm Fanatic wing foil in that video. Also comes in 1500 and 1750 sizes.

He was out with the 1750 and a 6m Echo in some pretty light wind,....but he has super wing foiling skills

The quality of this duotone wing is not very good. It broke while demoing :roll:

Sounds odd...

The first Duotone wing is virtually indestructible, so odd if the Echo should be bad :wink:

What happened?

Hi Peter,
I also would say Duotone wing v1 and echo (v2) are kept simple but seem to be pretty stable but have too low experience with tube kites to evaluate. Just had two little bladder holes in the old 5 m² but to me it looked like a shell in the tube has been the reason so not the fault of duotone.

I have writen a very small test about the new ECHO here:
