Duotone Super Hero 2021 - WAVE DRAFT CENTERED


LOOK NO FURTHER - THE WAVE SAIL FOR ANY CONDITION AND RIDER WEIGHT. THE CENTERED DRAFT POSITION MAKES THE SUPER HERO THE MOST NEUTRAL WAVE SAIL OUT THERE.


SUPER HERO is THE ultimate wave sail which is made to perform optimally in all wave conditions around the globe. The unrivaled balanced sail is the personal favorite of PWA Wave double world champion Victor Fernandez and is a real World Cup asset that is designed specifically for wave usage. Thanks to the absolutely neutral and perfectly balanced draft position, its handling characteristics are unrivaled and it remains stable and highly controlled in every situation. The SUPER HERO feels like a three-batten design combined with the stability of a five-batten one. The specially developed profile fills out very efficiently and produces high propulsion even when underpowered, which is why it?s suitable for almost all riders, regardless of weight.

The SUPER HERO's consistent evolution makes it an even better World Cup sail with an extremely wide range of use in the wave. It continues to deliver great high-end performance even in gusty and/or nuking conditions such as the Canary Islands or South Africa, remaining under perfect control with high winds and during extremely overpowered jumps. And yet it also boasts powerful acceleration capabilities at the lower wind limit, alongside an adjustable power/drive, which comes in handy when sailing in down-the-line spots like Maui or Mauritius.
To achieve this extraordinary overall package, designer Kai Hopf is tasked with combining numerous individual designs into a single concept. This includes the BATTEN-FREE CENTRE, additional MINI BATTENS, the HOLLOW LOWER LEECH and our unique RADIAL LOAD SWOOSH running from the clew. Only then can this four-batten wave sail offer a wind range whose breadth is without rival.
In terms of handling, the superiority of the SUPER HERO is beyond doubt thanks to its low weight. The batten rotation is beautifully soft, even with minimal outhaul tension. The top works very actively and thus supports the propulsion. Therefore you can confidently choose a sail size smaller than with many other wave sails.

SUPER HERO HD Although generally sharing the same structure, the SUPER HERO HD dispenses with monofilm even in the window panel.

    mast-brand-compatibilityt:
    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:

    1. Challenger Sails, Ezzy, GA (2017 on), Goya, Gun Sails, KA Sails, Loft Sails, Naish Sails, NeilPryde (RDM masts), RRD, S2Maui, Sailloft, Sailworks, Severne (2014 on):
    2. 80-90% (depending on model and size)

    3. Hot Sails, NeilPryde (SDM masts), Point7, Simmer Style:
    4. 70-80% (depending on model and size)

    5. Avanti, Gaastra (until 2016), Maui Sails, Severne (until 2013), Vandal
    6. Not compatible



    saillquiver-brand-compatibility:

    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>
    • Freeride and slalom sails from the different brands nowadays feel quite similar since at least the horizontal draft position is forward oriented on nearly every sail today.
    • The biggest difference though you find with wave sails.


    Basically there are 2 different kind of wave sails::

    1. Draft centered (= balanced pull on both hands) and low (to keep the sail controllable)
    2. These sails are the ideal companion for multi-fin boards. Since the balanced pull on both hands makes them super neutral in your hands they shine especially in real down the line conditions. On the other hand they feel very different to modern freeride and slalom sails (which are very forward pulling). So if you are using such draft back/low wave sails only very occasionally as your high wind flat water sail you might be better off with the second type of wave sails.

    3. Draft forward and up (to still generate enough low end power)
    4. These sails work on both single- and multi-fin boards. With the forward pulling feeling they are more exiting/direct to sail and have a very similar feeling to modern freeride and slalom sails. In addition they are the ideal choice for side-onshore jumping conditions as the higher and off-center oriented draft helps/accelerates rotations in the air (especially forward/backward loops).

    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:

    1. You are looking for a direct feeling wave sail especially for jumping. Or you need a smaller sail to complete your freeride or slalom sails. Try to get draft forward/up wave sails. Typical examples are:
      Duotone Super Star / NP Zone / NP Combat / NP Atlas / Point7 Salt / Point7 Spy / Severne S1 / Severne Blade
    2. You are looking for a wave sail which is super neutral for down the line riding and very forgiving in nuking gusty conditions. Try to get draft centered/low wave sails. Typical examples are:
      Duotone Super Hero / GA IQ / GA Manic / Goya Fringe / Goya Banzai / Simmer Tricera / Simmer Blacktip / Simmer Icon
    3. Try to avoid combining draft forward/up- with draft centered/low sails in your quiver as these feel and behave extremely different.
