The revolutionary 2-batten Dualist came about due to our passion for innovative design and continuous search for the next performance breakthrough. Specialized for down-the-line, wave-riding purists, the sensation of the S2Maui 2-batten Dualist can only be described as insanely light and agile with tons of drive. These characteristics, combined with the quick response of a tighter leech and instant power/depower of the 2-batten skeleton, certainly give you some new angles and opens your mind to possibilities that didn’t exist before. It provides an advantage for fitting into “unmakeable” sections of the wave and leaves you scratching your head, thinking “did I really pull that off?” We are having lots of fun with these at Ho’okipa.
“The Dualist is basically my down the line dream sail. It’s an extreme design and I had no idea what to expect when first trying it out but it blew me away. It’s incredibly light, very stable, and has the perfect amount of drive. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
The virtually zero stretch and extreme shape holding ability of S2Maui’s exclusive Carbon WX Spacelight™ and load oriented WARP-PATH panel layout greatly contribute to the 2022 Dualist’s increased wind range and stability. Furthermore, balance and stability in the 2-batten skeleton of the Dualist is made possible by the application of our center-of-effort balanced, FocusPoint™ profile shaping method. This must be the lightest, most maneuverable wave sail on the water – a game changer in terms of agility on the wave. Handles smoothly even in the gusts.
