DUOTONE 2022 F_PACE CAM

20/04/2022

Duotone have just released their completely new Foil Performance Cam sail the Duotone 2022 F_PACE CAM.

Duotone Say: Similar to the S_PACE the brand-new F_PACE CAM is directly derived from our WARP racing program. It carries the racing genes of our PWA world champion sail WARP_FOIL for maximum performance, but at the same time the handling is exceptionally easy for this class.

Compared to traditional fin sailing you have approximately 70% less drag on the foil. We were the first brand to understand that it requires a totally different sail design (profile, twist pattern, aspect ratio) to match the low-drag hydrofoils. The most important factor for performance foil sails is the balance between control and performance/speed over a maximum wind range combined with effortless handling.

Compared to the regular F_PACE the F_PACE CAM features an additional 6th batten and 2 HYPER CAM 2.0 + 2 SLEEVE INDUCERS. In addition the F_PACE CAM is designed around SDM masts. All this leads to a much more performance oriented behavior over a huge wind range.

The high aspect outline with reduced top surface corresponds perfectly with the low water resistance of the hydrofoil and the almost non-existent lateral forces. With less movement in the top, the rig remains stable over the board, for maximum control yet very reactive. The foot closes perfectly with the deck and allows for extreme angles against the wind with the extended foot batten – yet thanks to the extremely concave outline without any negative influence to the handling!

In our eyes, the F_PACE CAM redefines the benchmark of control : performance : wind-range ratio. And all of this combined with effortless handling and super smooth rotation so that even intermediate riders can choose the F_PACE CAM.

MARCO LANG

“YOU WANT MAXIMUM FOIL PERFORMANCE BUT IN A VERY ACCESSIBLE PACKAGE? WELL LOOK NO FURTHER THE F_PACE CAM IS YOUR SAIL OF CHOICE. PARTNERED WITH A RACE FOIL THE F_PACE CAM IS EXTREMELY COMPETITIVE YET MAYBE THE EASIEST TO USE FOIL CAM SAIL OUT THERE.!”

KEY FEATURES

+ REDUCED TOP ROACH: Reduced head area increases stability and control as it reduces the movement of the upper sail to correspond to the lower drag of the foil

+ REDUCED LOOSE LEECH: Reduces loose leech to correspond to the lower drag of the foil

+ XPLY CORNERS: Crashes while foiling can be tough – therefore we use XPly for all exposed parts of the sail (foot, clew, top)

+ SHORT BOOM >< EXTENDED FOOT-BATTEN: The super short boom greatly improves the handling while the extended foot batten avoids the sail becoming twitchy/unstable when flying + HYPER CAM 2.0: Completely new and technically superior: the camber revolution with adjustable length – for optimised rotation and increased performance

+ SLEEVE INDUCER: Best of both worlds: > same rigging speed and rotation like a no-cam sail > same optimized air-flow like a camber inducer
