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 ease for 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. We 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.
NEW SIZES 4.6 AND 5.0 EXTEND THE RANGE TOWARDS HIGH WIND FREERIDE AND BUMP&JUMP OR EVEN FREEWAVE
MOST WORK WENT INTO SIZES 7.3 AND 7.8
ON 7.8 THE NUMBER OF BATTENS GOT REDUCED FROM 7 TO 6 >> IMPROVED EARLY PLANING POWER WITHOUT SCARIFYING STABILITY
LUFF CURVE GOT OPTIMISED >> INCREASED CONTROL IN HIGH WINDS
At DUOTONE we use a Medium Constant Curve for our masts (our bend percentages range between 61-63 bottom and 75-77 top depending on model and length). As this curve sits right in the middle within Constant Curve masts it offers the biggest compatibility of any bend curve. This makes our masts and sails the most compatible on the market.
HERE IS HOW GOOD OTHER BRAND MASTS WORK WITH OUR SAILS AND VICE VERSA:
Most customers change their individual sail and mast sizes according to demand and therefore end up owning a quiver with different brands. When building up your personal sail quiver, you should try to combine sails that have a similar feel and behavior. The one decisive factor defining how similar or different one sail feels/behaves to another is the position of the draft, in both levels, vertical (high><low) and horizontal (forward><back).
Basically there are 2 different kind of wave sails:
So when mixing your quiver with different sails/brands you should try to combine sails which have a similar draft position and thus feeling and behavior.
Just follow these guidelines:
3 IN 1 DESIGN
For an unprecedented trim range and an extremely wide wind range
HOLLOW LOWER LEECH
Enables to reduce the bottom length without loosing low end power
Optional QUICK RIGGING PATCH allows "to the spot" trimming without even looking to the top (patent pending)
MINIMUM MAST CONCEPT
Two masts cover all sail sizes;
Factory calibrated individual batten tensions using a torque wrench;
The lightest protector on the market, with integrated trim indicator
AVAILABLE IN HD

With the information overkill nowadays no one has the time to read manuals anymore. Therefore we try hard to design our products as intuitive as possilbe to get you onto the water faster than with any other product. No wonder DUOTONE is called the feature world champ.
Here are some examples:
Our motto is clear: light is right but only if it doesn't go to costs of durability.
Our hardware products (booms, masts and extensions) are proven to be the lightest in the industry.
With our sails though we are not the lightest on the market (with the exception of the Super Hero M.Plus). The major reason for this is that we are using (much) thicker XPly laminates than some other brands.
The factors of puncture resistance, UV weathering resistance and stretch evidently depend ONLY on the thickness of the film used.
Puncture resistance and stretch have a linear relation to the thickness of the film. Means twice the thickness results in twice the strength against punctures with half the stretch.
Even more critical is UV resistance since here the relation to the thickness is overproportional. Means half the thickness reduces the UV-longevity by nearly 70%!
Some brands use XPly laminates which are 2/3rd thinner than ours in the upper sail area. Yes in the top you have less puncture issues and you can even get away with the increased strech. Unfortunately though the UV-exposure is the same all over the entire sail.
That's one of the reasons why the majority of Windsurf centres around the globe trust in DUOTONE products.
Eliminating stretch and loss of tension. If it’s good enough for safety belts, it’s good enough for windsurfers! We are 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.
