Description:

The Slick is our latest Freeride & Freestyle Wing featuring the Mini Boom - designed to enhance your flying experience with increased lift, power, and hang time. The Slick boasts exceptional stability and balance, allowing for a smooth ride through gusts and lulls.

The new version of Duotone's Mini Boom Wing was crafted with a clear objective - to amplify power while expanding the wind range and increasing the sweet spot. Not only does it provide more lift for jumps and Freestyle tricks, but it also will have you flying on the foil with minimal pumping, making a huge difference in light winds and for less experienced riders.

The MOD3 canopy makes a significant impact on the wing's performance, enhancing its grunt, low-end power, and direct response due to its low stretch characteristics. The higher modulus fabric and construction details ensure that the Slick’s shape and profile remain, even in strong gusts, resulting in rapid acceleration without the need for hand placement or riding position adjustments. Furthermore, the MOD3 canopy improves the wing's longevity and durability.

The deeper profile enhances the lift and makes for a smoother power delivery and provides a forgiving ride feel making it easy and intuitive for riders with varying experience and different wind conditions.

This feature enhances the learning curve for beginners, enabling them to master the basics quickly. Additionally, the constant and predictable pull makes it easier to execute freestyle tricks and rotational jumps with ease.

The Slick's refined strut flex and wing tip angles ensure consistent power delivery and a smooth and consistent ride through gusts.

Two well-placed windows on each side of the wing provide good visibility, so you never have a blind spot, without compromising the wing's lightweight feel.

With three Miniboom options, from the Aluminum Silver, to the Platinum and Platinum SLS in Carbon, there’s an ideal option for every rider. The Slick Miniboom is also backwards-compatible with our previous generation of Slick Wings.

The 2023 Slick flags out and steers exceptionally effortless when held by the refined front handle and remains neutral and balanced in the surf or when going downwind.

That being said - the Slicks infinite options in hand placement make it the ideal choice for both Freestylers and Freeriders alike. It offers unrivaled benefits and rapid progression for those learning maneuvers and tricks.

    Awesome on the water, not so great to pump up.

    The power and stability of this wing is incredible. I think at my location, all I will use is the 6.5 because the range is from light wind to gusting over 20 mph. Blowing it up though, is not easy. I found a solution but had to try multiple Duotone Pumps and none worked and if you don't have it just right you can't inflate it. Finally, I found a solution with https://wmfg.co/collections/big-tall-fast-kite-and-sup-pumps. It is not perfect, it still continually leaks out air while inflating, but at least I can get it inflated and use it.

    Duotone is in another league with wings, at least 1 and often 2 generations advanced, and this wing is their newest. Canopy is so stiff and well designed that it is apparent even just looking at it. Translates to fantastic pumping and direct control. I'm coming from the Units which I love, wow the boom is really a game-changer. One handed riding in the surf is incredible, this needs to be advertised, it's fantastic for toeside riding allowing your body to be open and not twisted. Loving this wing and the price is right for a premium sail cloth. Pros: -Ultra tight canopy, insane responsiveness -Amazing low end -Narrow so it doesn't catch -BOOM Cons: -Ridiculous Duotone proprietary inflation that literally leaks while pumping up even with a duotone pump -Doesn't flag from front handle as well as the Unit (although with the boom you don't flag from there as much)
