DUOTONE Windsurf boom Platinum SLS Series
- Sizes: 140-180 Slim / 150-200 Slim / 140-190 / 150-200 / 160-220 / 170-230 / 190-250
The super-lightweight carbon PLATINUM in AEROSPACE PREPREG TECHNOLOGY is designed for experienced and performance-oriented riders with its ultra-stiff monocoque design. Word has long since got around that even PWA team riders of other rig brands buy the PLATINUM.
In order to meet the toughest challenges, three fully customised concepts are at the start:
- Wave >< Freestyle (140 + 150)
- Wave >< Freeride (160)
- Slalom-Race (170 + 190)
The bending line of the short lengths with a smaller opening angle at the front and wider tail end combine to form the EVEN CURVE, which ensures a more even pull on the mast and backhand. This improves handling when riding the waves and lessens fatigue when performing freestyle moves.
By popular request, the PLATINUM is now also available in a MEGA SLIM version as the thinnest carbon boom worldwide with only 24.0 mm tube diameter (140-180 and 150-200).
NEW: In combination with the 2022 Duotone sails, the brand new VTS TAIL fitting offers for the first time a clear visual indication for the perfect outhaul tension (patent pending).
The wave/freeride version with HYBRID.CURVE was developed specifically for sail sizes 4.5 to 7.8, which can unfold optimally – in the truest sense of the word. For the very best grip comfort and secure hold when performing duck gybes, the tail end is half coated with Pro-Grip (INSIDE 50% GRIPPED TAIL). The low weight, iFRONT 2.0 front end and the stiffness of the monocoque design make it the highest-quality wave/freeride boom currently available.
Also this boom is equipped with the brand new VTS TAIL fitting.
The large PLATINUM booms have tried-and-tested race/slalom bend curves. An additional highlight is the iTAIL RACE FITTING, whose Teflon POM plastic rollers minimise friction. Absolutely unique: The ropes can even be looped while an outhaul trimming system is in use (patented).
The PLATINUM 170-230 features a 28 mm grip diameter, which is ideal for small and medium slalom sails and all freerace sail sizes.
Attention: the 170 length is mainly focussed on racing generating maximum stiffness despite the inside tail-end and the rather "small“ grip diameter. This can only be achieve through a certain pretension between the tail-end and the body. This pretension makes the PLATINUM 170 the stiffest boom of its kind on the market. Unfortunately though the pretension has a negative effect on the comfort while adjusting the boom length.
The 160 length (freeride focus) however comes with the same body than the 170 but features a tail-end with a smaller opening angle. This results in a 20% lower stiffness but a much higher comfort when adjusting the length.
The brand-new PLATINUM 190-250 now features a 28.5 mm grip diameter plus an OVAL OUTSIDE TAIL for 40% increased stiffness. The OVAL OUTSIDE TAIL also ensures that maximum stiffness is obtained even when fully extended.

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 iTAIL.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.
INSIDE GRIPPED TAIL
THE ULTIMATE TAIL-END GRIP! The EVA-gripped tail-end guarantees anti-slip. A reduced diameter of the inside tail-end additionally increases grip-comfort up to a maximum.
ITAIL RACE FITTING
RIGGING WITHOUT THREADING – EVEN WHEN USING AN ADJUSTABLE OUTHAUL-SYSTEM! The ultimate highlight is the all new iTAIL.RACE fitting. The teflon-POM synthetics build rollers feature a minimum of friction. Additionally, this unique solution allows to loop the rope even when using an adjustable outhaul-kit!
FOR 20% INCREASED STIFFNESS OF THE BOOM! All PLATINUM RACE SERIES 190 and 240 booms feature the individual OUTSIDE.TAIL-END with an increased diameter. The high cross-section makes the boom 20% stiffer.
