The Duotone Unit 2022 is a wave-oriented foil wing, offering easy handling and power on demand.

For 2022 Duotone brings some nice updates to its recently launched Unit wing. More than an update, it looks like a total revolution to us! 

Duotone3 Unit V2 Review


THE 2022 DUOTONE UNIT V2 IMPROVEMENTS:

NEW GRAB HANDLES

For the 2022 edition, the traditional textile handles of the wing have been replaced by 2 rigid long grab handles that resemble a boom split into two sections. These grab handles are screwed into a patch support installed on the middle strut (yes, they are removable) and offer the same benefits of a boom in terms of performance, power generation, and handling, all at a lower weight!

NEW CANOPY

The canopy has also changed for 2022: the Unit's panels are now oriented in a new direction: lengthwise instead of front-to-back. This allows to create more tension in the front part of the wing where all the power and draft are. The power of the wind, being more concentrated in the front part, makes the wing generate an upward lift, which will help riders during technical tacks or jibes: you will be constantly lifted upwards!!!
The extra tension of the new canopy also reduces all turbulences while surfing a wave or the ocean swell.

 

DLAB - DUOTONE LABORATORY

The new 2022 Duotone Unit will be soon available in a DLAB version where the struts and the leading edge are made of the lighter and stronger Aluula material.

    Duotone unit 6m

    Posted by Wing Eng on 22nd Oct 2023

    Love the handles on the unit. The 6m doesn’t feel too big for my 5’10” height. Very manageable with little tip drag. Makes low wind sess possible.

    Duotone 2022 V2 (5m)

    Posted by Noah on 12th Aug 2023

    Love this wing - its my major workhorse. Bought the 2022 since it was a better pricepoint and I have a 2023 and its pretty squirrely - not great for a intermediate like me. Only beef with this is the handles are a little rough and so found I needed gloves.

    4.5 & 4.0 Duotone Unit V2

    Posted by Ted on 11th May 2023

    I've used most wings on the Market. I have a 5.0 & 6.0 DLab. The Unit V2 is an exceptional wing, great range and comes around on tacks better than other wings I have tried. Plus it's 1/3 the price of the DLab

    Overall a great wing, lots of power for a 4m. It hunts around in the wind a bit when it gets overpowered but otherwise great.

    Excellent wing, very responsive and positive pull. No delay or loss of power when pumping. Handles are great and very easy to use. Great deflate options.

    I love this wing (3.5M, 4.5M, 5.5M quiver). Its stiff and provides direct power in light wind, and has unreal control when overpowered. The lift designed into the wing really helps with tacking and light wind take offs. The MacKite guys are amazing and offer unreal support. Whatever you get, get it from them!

    Good Wing

    Posted by Duke on 13th Apr 2022

    Me: Advanced foiler, 95% waves, two sessions so far including a long downwinder in the waves. Pros: - Excellent handles, really fantastic in the surf, solid connection and the angles are just perfect. - Flies great, tight canopy, pumps well - Great bag Cons: -Flag-out front handle is just a piece of rope, it's awful (although you don't really need it with this handle configuration interestingly) -Duotone pump system is horrible, requires separate adaptor -One-pump is BAD for wings, doesn't allow pressure titration, connection hose can get dislodged - Requires the two dump valves to be opened to deflate the wing - Handles are heavy, should be carbon or just lighter in general - Hard to get the green color, not sure why they are obsessed w/purple but the green looks awesome it's just hard to get - No leash included, no pump adaptor included - Windows are basically useless and should be removed, I couldn't see my friends and we were sharing waves/crossing paths constantly. No big deal but no point to have the windows. Overall: 4 starts. Not as good as the Ocean Rodeo. I still really like the wing and I"m very happy with it and going to keep it but it's strange that they haven't fixed the multiple obvious engineering flaws as listed above despite being a 3rd generation wing. Next gen OR wing w/carbon handles is going to be the ticket. The Aluula version of this will be nice but it doesn't fix any of the problems listed above, it will make it lighter and fly better but it's already plenty light and flies very well.

    Nice wing

    Posted by Daniel Nicholson on 8th Apr 2022

    I’ve primarily been using the Unit V1 before buying the Unit V2. I really like the new handles. That change made the wing more user-friendly. I also like the way the V2 transitions when changing directions. It also jumps better than the V1, more like the Slick. But it carves downwind better than the Slick. They’ve also beefed up the stitching on the leading edge and moved it to the outside, so it’s visible if there is a problem. I’ve also flown the new Strike 2. It’s more stable and doesn’t “hunt” in the gusts like the Unit V2, but I didn’t care for the Strike’s handles.
