Duotone Unit D/LAB 2023
The wing that needs no introduction, the Unit D/LAB 2023 is the pinnacle of wing design and the benchmark in performance.
The Duotone Laboratories’ mission is to develop the absolute best products and break boundaries within wind sports. As a result, the Unit D/LAB 2023 features the most cutting-edge premium materials and construction technology with no expense spared in the pursuit of the ultimate ride.
Only after it has excelled all expectations and passed extensive rigorous testing does it achieve the prestigious D/LAB seal of approval.
For 2023 the Aluula leading edge and strut combine with our new MOD3 canopy and the result is mind blowing! The latest version of Aluula fabric offers unmatched weight, ride compliance and response, which results in a lighter wing with improved lift, drift, power and hang time. The instantaneous feedback from the Unit D/LAB allows you to fly earlier, jump higher and rotate quicker.
WAVE & DOWNWIND / JUMPING & FREESTYLE / FREERIDE
The MOD3 Canopy channels the energy from the Aluula material into pure acceleration and sheer grunt! The higher modulus MOD3 fabric holds the shape of the wing with double the strength in the warp direction and 3 times the stretch resistance in the bias direction over a traditional canopy.
Lower stretch significantly improves draft stability, power delivery and the pumping efficiency of the wing, which ultimately allows the use of smaller wings in lighter winds and the new Unit D/LAB sees an increased usable range. The new durable MOD3 remains crisp and fresh like its day one and in addition, significantly improves the tear resistance and canopy strength.
Similar to the design refinements seen in the Original Unit for 2023, designer Ken Winner has optimized the dihedral angle, as well as the tip and strut twist for enhanced drift stability when surfing or flying through basic manoeuvres.
The front handle has been reinforced for better stand-off and control when surfing with your wing flagged, while the window layout offers better visibility for improved safety allowing you to always see your surroundings.
Our rigid handles have revolutionized wing design for their direct steering and power transfer allowing the rider quick adjustments through its grip range combined with pump-and-go simplicity while maintaining a lightweight minimal size that is easy to pack away at the end of a session.
The Unit D/LAB excels in the surf but loves powerful riding, jumps and tricks at all levels. It’s your choice between Unit Original and D/LAB but just keep in mind, if you want the ultimate in performance then it has to be the Unit D/LAB!
