DUOTONE Windsurf boom Silver Series
- Sizes: 140-190 / 150-200 / 160-220 / 180-230 / 200-250
All SILVER booms are made from 7075 high-tech aluminium in high-quality BONDED TECHNOLOGY. This material used predominantly in cycling gives the tubes significantly more stiffness. There is also the new combination of a round tube in the front area (holding forces act obliquely downwards, so it is stiffer around here) and the OVAL TAIL SECTION (horizontal sail pull, thus the oval tube is stiffer here). This makes the entire SILVER around 30% stiffer. Together with the hardened front arch, this results in enormous hardness and durability. Duotone is even prepared to offer a two-year unlimited warranty on all SILVER models – even for bending!
The wave-oriented SILVER models consist of three segments and have a one-piece aluminium rear arch in addition to the intelligent iFRONT 2.0 front end. Together with the RDM tubes at 28 mm, this creates the ideal combination of stiffness and comfort. The bend curve applies an even pull on the mast- and backhand. The lengths 180 and 200 cm with performance bend curve are specifically for freeride sails and a 30 mm tube diameter to ensure maximum stiffness.
The solid PROTECTION GRIP coating on the outside effectively prevents damage to the coating when rigging up.
NEW: the entire SILVER line is equipped with the brand-new VTS TAIL fitting. In combination with the Duotone sails, the VTS TAIL fitting offers for the first time a clear visual indication for the perfect outhaul tension (patent pending).

IFRONT 2.0 - THE LIGHTEST FRONT-END ON EARTH!
THE UNIQUE CONSTRUCTION OF THE iFRONT 2.0 COMBINES THE ADVANTAGES OF PREVIOUS CONCEPTS IN ONE FRONT-END:
A VERTICAL STIFFNESS:
Unlike other front-ends Duotone uses 50% longer stainless steel axle-bolts which are directly connected to the side walls. Thus we obtain a maximum vertical/torsion stiffness, which results in an extremely direct connection/transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance).
B HORIZONTAL FLEXIBILITY:
The partially recessed center of the collar gives the iFRONT 2.0 a kind of hinge function, so that the collar fits to any mast diameter without any gap (= very smooth on the mast and extremely slip resistant). Duotone knows of no other front-end that fits so smoothly around the mast and thus effectively protects the mast.
PERFECT FIT GUARANTEED FOR BOTH SDM AND RDM MASTS
This exceptional fit is guaranteed on SDM as well as RDM masts as the iFRONT 2.0 can easily be adapted through the exchange of 2 different friction pads.
EXTERNAL TAIL FITTINGS
MINIMUM WEIGHT AND UNMATCHED FEATURES! Especially on carbon booms most brands integrate the fittings into the tail-end to generate a clean look. Duotone prefers external fittings to achieve 3 crucial advantages:
- Much lower weight
- Features and functions which no other brand can offer (see idAIL.RACE.FITTING and iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING)
- If need be super easy to exchange
WIDE WAVE TAIL GEOMETRY
EQUAL LOAD ON BOTH HANDS AND IMPROVED HANDLING! Also the short booms now feature a 4 cm wider tail-end moving your back-hand further away from the sail. For the first time now your back- and front-hand are equally angled making sailing less fatigue. You immediately realize this much more relaxed sailing position no matter if going in a straight line or down the line on a wave. The second advantage is a much improved handling during ducking maneuvers.
Since 1992 all Duotone sails feature VTS dots clearly showing the right downhaul tension. With the introduction of the VTS TAIL designers have finally made the correct outhaul tension visible as well. Due to the integrated visual indicator and rope markings now you have the perfect outhaul trim every session.
PROTECTION GRIP INSERT
MORE RESISTANT! The high-density EVA grip insert at the outside guarantes maximum abrasion resistance during rigging.
OVAL TAIL SECTION
The tail section has similar influence on the overall boom stiffness as the front section, although the influence increases the further you extend the boom length.
Unlike the front section where the forces act in multiple directions, 90% of the forces on the tail section occur laterally as the main force comes from the sail pulling sideways. With the forces only occuring in one direction, the most effective geometry here is an asymmetrical oval cross section that is horizontally orientated.
This makes the entire SILVER boom approx. 30% stiffer!
2 YEAR UNCONDITIONAL WARRANTY
Light is right but only if it doesn't go to costs of durability.
Durability as part of the DUOTONE quality has always been one of the defining characteristics of their products - and it stays that way. Becuase despite offering the lightest components on the market they hold firmly to the course of their tried and true quality claim. This is ensured by sophisticted engineering, highest quality and more effectively used raw materials combined with the latest processing technologies. The legendary DUOTONE longevity is therefore retained completely, which they guarantee for your with an industry-leading 2 YEAR UNCONDITIONAL WARRANTY!
