The Super Hero is the ultimate wave sail for wave and bump and jump conditions around the world.
A personal favorite of PWA Wave double world champion Victor Fernandez, thanks in part to the Super Hero’s absolutely neutral and perfectly balanced draft position. Its handling characteristics are unrivaled. Simply put, it remains stable and highly controlled in every situation.
In maneuvers, the Super Hero handles like a three-batten design. In gusts, it offers the stability of a five-batten sail. The specially developed profile fills out efficiently and produces high propulsion even when underpowered, making it suitable for most all riders, regardless of their size.
No Dacron Luff replaces the faster wearing dacron with X-ply and makes for a more durable, balanced and precise sail
Duotone’s Motto: Light is right, but only when it doesn’t compromise durability! The thickness of the X-Ply balances lightness with puncture and UV resistance
VTS 2.0 “guess free” visual trimming guide to help find the perfect downhaul tension
Set & Go Vario-top markings on the mast cap webbing immediately lead you to the right setting
Individual Boom Length Markings are printed on the clew and boom cutout so you always know the correct boom length
iRocket 2.0 every batten has a unique tension that has been set and glued in the factory, so rest assured that your battens are perfectly tensioned.
WHAT’S NEW FOR 2021 SUPER HERO?
Most work went into sizes 5.0, 5.3 and 5.7 models.
Optimized luff curve to improve twist for a bigger wind range.
Improved profile further up for a lighter feeling and improved planing.
Head size at batten No. 1 has been reduced so the sail pushes the board down less.
To achieve the Super Hero’s extraordinary overall package, designer Kai Hopf combined Duotone exclusives such as the Batten-Free Center, additional Mini Battens, the Hollow Lower Leech, and our unique Radial Load Swoosh running from the clew. The end result is a wind range whose breadth is without rival.
In hand, the Super Hero is exceptionally lightweight. The batten rotation is beautifully soft, even with minimal outhaul tension. The sail’s top works very actively and thus supports the propulsion. Our riders often choose a sail size smaller than other wave sails.
