DUOTONE Windsurf sail E_Pace HD 2022

PERFORMANCE CAM

  • Sizes: 4.6 / 5.0 / 5.4 / 5.8 / 6.2 / 6.6 / 7.3 / 7.8 / 8.2
  • Discipline: Freeride / Freerace

The brand-new E_PACE is exactly the kind of athletic freeride sails that makes windsurfing so fascinating and uncomplicated: easy to rig, accelerate like an e-motor and get into planing without pumping. Paired with competitive speed potential and the playful handling of a no-cam sail. This is pure windsurfing, with lots of thrust, speed AND the special simplicity even for the most sporty driven maneuvers.

Versatility is the great strength of the E_PACE: versatile range of use, versatile in a wide range of wind conditions. Thanks to the 3 IN 1 DESIGN with a greatly reduced luff curve, which is almost straight in the upper area, the downhaul tension has a major influence on the loose leech - and in turn on the character of the sail, depending on the trim. The two extremely wide MIN and MAX trim points offer the opportunity to cover an incredibly wide wind range and to give the E_PACE a completely different high- or low end performance and sail feeling. On MIN setting it accelerates very powerfully with the slightest wind pressure and feels incredibly light - ideal also for foiling. On MAX trim, however, it offers endless speed and control even when overpowered thanks to its pronounced loose leech.

Ergo: The new No Cam E_PACE is the perfect freeride sail for all waters and conditions, combining handling and rigging advantages with a crisp, direct feel and harmonious, sparkling power delivery. Offering lot of fun, confidence, control and wonderfully easy windsurfing. Duotone's designers are sure that there is no No Cam sail out there covering a larger wind range and range of use than the E_PACE.

Simply awesome: When used for foiling the E_PACE features a special clew eyelet to be able to position the sail even more upright!

All E_PACE are also available in monofilm-free HD construction. The extremely durable material mix, however, has its price, which we want to point out.

Features


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - 3D TOP CAP

3D TOP CAP

Optimised pull. On regular top caps and pin systems the webbing is connected in a “one-dimensional” way with the sail body (either side to side or front to back), which transfers the downhaul tension only in certain points. The 3D TOP CAP allows a “three-dimensional” and very widespread transition of the downhaul forces into the sail body. This eliminates top fluttering and ensures a progressive loose leech extending the wind range. The integrated abrasion ribs eliminate the need for heavy, bulky reinforcements at the end of the luff sleeve.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - POLYESTER WEBBING ONLY

POLYESTER WEBBING ONLY

Eliminating stretch and loss of tension. If it’s good enough for safety harnesses, it’s good enough for windsurfers! Duotone is the only manufacturer to use only polyester webbing for the (vario) top and the tack roller. This advantage of this compared to conventional polypropylene is the negligible amount of stretch. As a result even brand new sails will retain full luff tension and will not need subsequent trimming.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - TT TOP

TT TOP

Improved sail control at higher winds. Designer Kai Hopf originally designed the TT TOP for the WARP. The reduced, concave shape improves tension conditions for a more effective, three-dimensional top twist. This means the top twists not only horizontally, but also vertically under strong winds. By completely neutralising gusts of wind, the rig is kept steady in the rider’s hands, and thus works in a much larger range of winds.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - IROCKET 2.0

IROCKET 2.0

Super-lightweight and aerodynamic.
An inconspicuous detail with a massive impact. iROCKET 2.0 batten tensioners are super-lightweight, aerodynamic and highly stable, consisting of high-quality components such as a self-lubricating, salt-water-resistant brass nut with stainless-steel screw which can withstand all batten tensions. Furthermore, the iROCKET 2.0 is an essential component for a true windsurfing revolution.
100% correct batten tension, correctly adjusted when purchased and forever after. Duotone calibrates each individual batten at the factory according to development specifications. And they don’t just leave it up to blind intuition either – all battens are adjusted to 100% accuracy using torque wrenches. Duotone also applies soluble screw adhesive to the locknuts so that the tension cannot be altered. This means that the batten tension remains absolutely correct and will never have to be adjusted again. The batten key included with the sail is therefore only needed for fine tuning or in the unlikely event of a batten breakage.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - DOUBLE SEAM TECHNOLOGY

DOUBLE SEAM TECHNOLOGY

Double the durability with half as much stretch. DUOTONE manufactures products of unmatched quality which gives their sails a significantly longer lifetime. A key feature which helps to achieve this is the triple-stitch zig-zag seams. Unlike other products with their single-seam design, these are double-seam. They cover all exposed crash areas, which increases tear resistance and reduces bending-elongation by up to 50%, boosting profile stability and performance.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - EPOXY BATTEN

EPOXY BATTEN

Extremely stable, extremely break-resistant. Depending on the range of use, positioning in the sail and the necessary tension, the batten stress is enormous. In order to prevent breakages, designers only fit into all solid battens extremely durable epoxy laminates which really can withstand anything and can live up to DUOTONE’s promises in terms of longevity.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - MAST SLEEVE OPENER

MAST SLEEVE OPENER

Frictionless insertion of the mast into the luff sleeve. An ingenious solution does away with the tedium of inserting the mast. The DUOTONE logo above the boom cutout gently opens the sleeve so that the mast can be threaded with one hand into the luff friction-free, without having to constantly make adjustments to the luff.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - INDIVIDUAL BOOM LENGTH INDICATION

INDIVIDUAL BOOM LENGTH INDICATION

The correct boom length without the need for trial and error. Because the boom is attached to the mast at different heights depending on body size, and because this creates a different angle to the mast, the boom length will vary. Specific recommendations for the correct length are printed directly on the luff sleeve at the boom level.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - HTS 2.0 HARNESSLINE TRIM SYSTEM

HTS 2.0 HARNESSLINE TRIM SYSTEM

Never position your harness lines incorrectly again. Do away with the tedium of adjusting to the optimum rope position, as well as the numb forearms and the endless fiddling around. The patented print on the sail shows exactly where the centre of the harness line has to be. All you need to do is position the two ends symmetrically at the left and right of the print.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - PROGRESSIVE CUTAWAY CLEW INCL. CROSS BATTEN

PROGRESSIVE CUTAWAY CLEW INCL. CROSS BATTEN

Optimum combination of minimised rotation forces, power, and handling. The CROSS BATTEN concept is the intelligent solution that shifts the draft position downwards while supporting the large surface area in the boom area. It also allows for an early planing profile without losing handling. Ideal in combination with the PROGRESSIVE CUTAWAY CLEW which has an extremely positive influence on the sail’s agility and handling, and allows for a shorter, more rigid boom. Both features vary depending on the sail type and size. That is, the more pronounced the CUTAWAY and the longer the CROSS BATTEN, the more flex and comfort achieved, especially when overpowered (“excess” sail area “flexes away” in a controlled manner). The more the sail is geared towards performance, the less pronounced both components are to ensure a more direct acceleration.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - X.PLY PLUS

X.PLY PLUS

What would you prefer? Maximum puncture resistance and UV weathering resistance with minimal stretch? Or (theoretically) improved ripstop properties?
Designers went with option A and developed the most durable laminate on the market. Because the factors of puncture resistance, durability and stretch evidently depend only on the thickness of the film used, Duotone uses only 150 or 100 micron thick films for their exclusive XPLY PLUS. In an extensive series of tests, designers have developed the ideal combination of necessary film thickness and number of threads. The X.PLY PLUS in particular, at 150 microns in thickness, boasts durability characteristics far in excess of previous laminates at minimal weight. This is also acknowledged by all the big surfing centres and rental equipment providers around the world, who place their trust in the unbeatable quality and longevity of Duotone sails.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - TWIN STRAP

TWIN STRAP

This keeps the sail rolled up and holds the protector to the mast. A brilliantly simple fastening system which keeps the sail compact and closed after being rolled up and, when on the water, holds the mast protector closely to the mast.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - SUPER-LIGHT BUMPER

SUPER-LIGHT BUMPER

The lightest protector on the market, with integrated trim indicator.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - TRIPLE TACK ROLLER

TRIPLE TACK ROLLER

Find the perfect trim with minimal effort.
The integrated, nickel-plated brass triple roller minimizes the downhaul forces tremendously.


DUOTONE Windsurf sail S_Pace 2022 - DURA LUFF PATCH

DURA LUFF PATCH

Extremely stable luff reinforcement. The area around the boom cutout is exposed to extreme wear and tear as the luff panel gets folded when inserting and pulling out the mast. This “accordion effect” can lead to tears in the monofilm after a while. The flexible DURA LUFF PATCH reinforces this area making for a soft transition into the monofilm to avoid film breakage.
