The 2019 Duotone Pace Foil Board is an all-around foil specific board that comes in three sizes to best suit your size, style, and ambitions. Featuring a wide nose with a convex bottom to prevent touch down sticking, rail catching, and pearling as well as making getting up a breeze even in light wind, the Pace has a plethora of footstrap placement options for a two strap freeride setup or a three strap race configuration. A standard track mount allows for a wide range of mast placement options to suit any rider's preferences.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
We recommend the Pace to beginner to expert foilers who want a no-compromises foil specific board that has ample volume for taking advantage of light wind foiling and bottom contouring to ride hard and fast without catching a rail. The fat nose prevents pearling and focuses lots of volume under the front foot to retain control even when you do touch down. The three size options let you get just the board you want depending on your size and ability. Go bigger if you are a larger or newer foiler; go small if you are a smaller rider or if you have it dialed in and want to go micro for maximum performance.
DUOTONE'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The completely new Duotone Pace, perfect for smooth and easy freeriding.
The completely new Duotone Pace is an all-round foil board that comes in three sizes - 4’3”, 4’6”, 4’10”. It has a convex bottom shape, especially in the nose area, which helps prevent sticking during touchdowns and helps to prevent the rails catching in the chop while riding upwind. The wide nose offers maximum surface area and volume under the front foot to prevent nose diving and makes it easy to get started in light wind. The Pace can be ridden with one, two, or three foot straps and has a track foil mount. A great board for smooth and easy freeriding!
2018 NORTH Foil Speedster GT Combo features smaller and faster wings for experienced foilers looking for enhanced performance. The GT Combo increases the average riders top speeds by 20%-25% while maintaining a stable and predictable ride. Designed for performance at speed, the GT Combo has improved efficiency and high lift at low speeds and predictable stall characteristics at high angles of attack.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
The Speedster GT will appeal to intermediate to advanced foilers who want to go fast but don't want to give up their freefoiling tricks and low-end speed. We recommend the Speedster GT to foilers who want a high-quality foil with an exceptionally strong and moderately lightweight construction that goes fast and retains good stability at lower speeds, too.
NORTH'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The fastest foil of the range, aimed at experienced riders who want to go fast but still keep control.
The Speedster GT Combo is aimed at the experienced rider. The new wings should give the average foiler about 5 knots more speed, which is an increase of 20% to 25% for most riders. Moreover, it is easy and predictable to ride and a good wing for learning foiling tacks and jibes. The front wing anhedral (droop) also helps to keep the wing tips away from the water surface while blasting upwind or carving a hard turn. This helps to pre-vent ventilation from the wing tip going too close to the water surface.
