North Sails 2017 PLATINUM Series Windsurfing Boom
2nd Lightest and stiffest boom on market - right after Platinum Aero
The carbon PLATINUM made in AEROSPACE.PREPREG.TECHNOLOGY is an absolute must for performance-oriented experts. Thanks to the mega stiff monocoque construction, it is considered to be the lightest and stiffest boom on the market. It is an open secret that even PWA professionals from other brands now buy the PLATINUM! To meet the highest requirements, we now offer three different models: Wave/Freestyle (140) Slalom/Formula (170/190/240 cm) and brand new Wave/Freeride (160).
The bend-curves of the PLATINUM.WAVE sizes have been completely redesigned for 2015. The smaller opening angle at the front and the wider tail result in the new EVEN.CURVE, which ensures a uniform pull onto front- and backhand. This improves the handling during wave riding and freestyle moves and leaves the rider feeling less fatigue. It comes with the iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING featuring a patented loop-loop-go fitting (perfect friction-free rope alignment) and a complete non-slip EVA gripping! For maximum gripping comfort all PLATINUM.WAVE booms still come with an inside tail-end.
The brand new Wave<>Freeride version with HYBRID.CURVE was developed especially for sail sizes 4.5 to 7.8. This bend curve fits perfectly with these kinds of sail sizes and types. For unique grip comfort and a secure hold during duck jibes, the tail end also features the INSIDE.GRIPPED.TAIL. In addition to being incredibly lightweight, the all-new iFRONT 2.0 front-end and the rigidity of the monocoque construction; probably make this the highest quality wave/freeride boom that has ever been produced.
The PLATINUM.RACE sizes, however, feature extensive Race/Formula bend-curves and are equipped with the new iFRONT 2.0 head with minimum torsional flex. All PLATINUM.RACE booms come with an individual OUTSIDE.TAIL.END for 20% increased stiffness. PLATINUM 190cm and 240cm have the same boom body, and therefore are extremely extendable thanks to two OVERSIZED.OUTSIDE tail-ends of different lengths avoiding the loss of stiffness even when fully extended! Another highlight is the iTAIL.RACE.FITTING featuring low-friction Teflon-POM rollers. Absolutely unique: The rope can be looped even when using an outhaul trim system (patent pending).
