No other sail can covers such an extremely wide range from Wave to flatwater Freestyle as perfectly as the DUKE. This rule applies for years, and the optimized 2011 model more than ever is like a chameleon that adapts to its environment almost automatically. To enable this broad range of use, the whole team was involved. Only this way it’s guaranteed that the Duke will meet all requirements in all conditions.
The requirements for a Power Wave sails and a Freestyle sail are very similar: great planing potential combined with maximum handling and good controllability. Up to 5.4m2, the DUKE therefore has been designed as a powerful Wave sail. Not only because of the effective TWIN.TRIM.CLEW it has the greatest trimming versatility of all our Wave sails and the DUKE can easily be controlled by medium-weight riders too.
For sizes 5.9m² and above, Kai Hopf improved the new DUKE strictly according to the specifications of our Triple Freestyle World Champion Jose “Gollito” Perez, and EFPT Champion Andre Paskowski. 5 battens, the HYPER.LEECH II and the unique foot geometry improve the handling especially during difficult Freestyle tricks.
