FREERIDE, FREESTYLE, WAVE, AND DOWNWIND
The Duotone Slick SLS wings utilize Strong / Light / Superior (SLS) technology to create a lighter, stiffer, more powerful and stable wing than its predecessor. The end result is a smoothness in handling that saves rider energy, boosts confidence, and water time. Our most popular wing in our range, now better.
Upgrades to the Duotone Slick SLS include the use of PentaTX material, which has been a game changer in Duotone kites. PentaTX is exceptionally lightweight, and stiff. The Slick SLS features PentaTX across the wing’s leading edge and strut to deliver precise, responsive feedback to your fingertips.
The Duotone Slick SLS features a redesigned outline that improves luffing stability for riding waves, and adds power for jumps. A new window layout minimizes weight without compromising visibility. The Slick SLS outline enhances clearance to reduce snagging the wingtips.
The original Slick’s mini boom marches on in the Slick SLS, giving riders a constant connection to the wing, and infinite hand placement options. The mini boom fits Slick SLS models of all sizes, and is offered in Aluminum (Silver) or Carbon (Platinum) constructions.
Whether learning the basics or going for pro-level moves, the Slick is packed full of performance that guarantees progression!

“MAGIC” MINI BOOM
Precise steering, trimming, and infinite hand placement options. No reaching, searching or futzing with handles. The mini boom offers a constant connection to the wing to enhance rider control and balance. A big deal, whether for newcomers or freestylers!
New design features in the Duotone Slick SLS increase positive lift. The wing feels light and, thanks to stiff PentaTX materails in the leading edge and strut, delivers trustable power. Tacking, jibing, jumping, spinning — all of ’em are made easier with the Slick SLS.
The Duotone Slick SLS’ PentaTX leading edge and strut create a crisp, immediate response to rider input. Steering, and pumping are enhanced. So is acceleration onto the foil, and handling in any maneuver. Add the mini boom, and the result is a wing connected to its rider unlike any other.
The Duotone Slick SLS features a slightly wider span than the original Slick to improve drift stability and power. But it retains a compact outline to help smaller riders keep the wing tips clear.
Light, neutral, and effortless on a wave. The Slick SLS features an exceptionally stable center of effort, perfect for controlled luffing, and trustable power while going through gusts and lulls.
Here at Big Winds, the mini boom is loved by our “mature” customers. They can hold the wing with one hand, at the boom’s center point. This goes far when the wind dies in preserving shoulder strength.
