BOOM NORTH 2015 ALL MODELS - Over 30 years ago the success story of North-Sails booms started off with the first snap-on boom ever. Since than massive investments in R&D resulted in vast & continuous improvement. Today we proudly present the most highly developed state of the art boom programme out there. All booms are perfectly adjusted for each range of use and are outfitted with the most highly technical and functional details.
RED SERIES - Produced in high-tech BONDED.TECHNOLOGY
The boom arms and the head are “melted“ together with special aerospace-standard glue. The brand-new iFRONT.WAVE ensures maximum comfort and the easiest handling as its flex and stiffness are perfectly adjusted towards the demands of the target group.
The 2 short lengths feature an ultra-modern PROGRESSIVE.BENDCURVE and a reduced diameter of 28mm. All other lengths come with a classic bend-curve and 30mm diameter. An additional contribution to safety and superior comfort comes from the DOUBLE.PIN.LOCK system, which firmly locks the boom while preventing the tubes from twisting. Also new is the PROTECTION.GRIP, an extra stiff EVA stripe on the outside of the tubes, which effectively prevents surface damage when rigging. Due to its individual bend-curves the RED series suits almost all type of sails from all brands (RDM adapter not included).
SILVER SERIES HD - 30% stiffer than ordinary aluminum tubes
The more affordable version of the GOLD RS, also manufactured using the BONDED.TECHNOLOGY (cannot be dismantled), is manufactured from 7075 high-tech aluminum; famously used with within high tech mountain bikes. This material makes the arms 30% stiffer than ordinary aluminum tubes. In combination with the additionally hardened front-tube offering 20% increased stiffness the new SILVER HD offers massive advantages in durability. We are so convinced by this technology that we are giving 2 years full warranty, even including bending!
The SILVER HD consists of 4 segments and has a one-piece alloy tail-end which is of course also equipped with the innovative iFRONT head.
Features such as flex adjustment and length-specific RDM tubes with a 28mm or 30mm diameter (starting at 180 cm) combine super-high rigidity
with great comfort.
For 2014, the lengths of 140, 150 and 160 cm have received an updated bend-curve, which ensures a uniform pull onto front- and backhand. Further
more the entire SILVER HD line is now equipped with the brand new iTAIL.WAVE which guarantees a perfect friction-free rope thread (patent pending). Also new is the PROTECTION.GRIP, an extra stiff EVA stripe on the outside of the tubes, which effectively prevents surface damage when rigging. A total of five boom lengths are available, making the SILVER series fit perfectly for all sails from Wave up to Performance.
GOLD SERIES WF & RS - Following intensive research and development, the new GOLD combines two different models in one high-end line: The lengths 170 and 190 cm are fully designed for racing and are probably the stiffest aluminum booms on the market. They feature the same OUTSIDE.TAIL with iTAIL.RACE.FITTING as the PLATINUM booms and thus deliver maximum power for any kind of race slalom sail. The lengths 140 and 160 cm, however, are designed 100% for Wave or Wave/Freeride use.
They also feature all essential components of the PLATINUM, in particular the INSIDE.GRIPPED.TAIL with iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING. Of course, all bend-curves were precisely adapted to the respective discipline. The new iFRONT 2.0 boom-head offers a very direct power transition without sacrificing the comfort. All GOLD booms are manufactured with NorthSails unique BONDED.TECHNOLOGY, which “welds” the boom arms together with the front-tube. This exclusive production technology in combination with a material mix of T8 alloy and ALU.TITAN (ALU.TITAN.HYBRID.CONSTRUCTION) has enabled a quantum jump in terms of durability and stiffness. All GOLDS are unchallenged in their class and regarded as the new industry standard within hybrid booms – and all of this with a 2-year unlimited warranty!*
PLATINUM SERIES WAVE - 2nd Lightest boom on market
The carbon PLATINUM is the ultimate in AEROSPACE.PREPREG.TECHNOLOGY and a 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 (after the brand-new PLATINUM AERO boom). It is an open secret that even PWA professionals from other brands now buy the PLATINUM!
To meet the highest requirements, we distinguish between Wave and Freestyle lengths (140 and 150) and longer Slalom and Formula lengths of 170cm to 240cm.
The bend-curves of the PLATINUM.WAVE sizes have been completely redesigned for 2014. 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. Also brand new is the iTAIL.WAVE featuring a patented loop-loop-go fitting (perfect friction-free rope thread) and a complete non-slip EVA gripping! For maximum gripping comfort all PLATINUM.WAVE booms still come with an inside tail-end.
The PLATINUM.RACE sizes, however, feature extensive Race/Formula bend-curves and are equipped with the innovative iFRONT head. Flex and suspension can be adjusted in three steps ranging from comfortable up to ultra-stiff. All PLATINUM.RACE booms come with individual OUTSIDE.TAIL.ENDs for 20% increased stiffness.
PLATINUM 190cm and 240cm have the same boom body, and are extremely extendable thanks to two OVERSIZED.OUTSIDE tail-ends of different lengths avoiding to loose 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).
PLATINUM SERIES AERO - The lightest and most exclusive boom on earth
Admit it, you want it: Here comes the logical continuation of what we have already demonstrated with the PLATINUM AERO mast. PLATINUM AERO is the lightest boom in the world and the ultimate in technology, weight and processing.
However the incredibly elaborate production allows just an extremely limited number (first come first serve). Due to the highest quality of materials and unique production process it’s a fabulous 400g lighter than the already very light PLATINUM counterpart. Despite the "anorexia" the PLATINUM AERO convinces with sensational stiffness, ultra direct feel, application-specific features and bending curves that make it a "must have" for high-end riders. Aside from the fact that the AERO version is only available in two lengths (140-190 / 190-250), it has all the features of the regular PLATINUM (see below). A warning though that we need to express; high-end technology has its price, so don’t be shocked.
EPX ALUMINUM SERIES - EXP and EXP GROM - This aluminum boom comes with a universal curve for a very wide range of use. The proven, easy-to-use front-end fixes the EPX boom onto the mast avoiding slippage. The classical adjustment system allows a super fast length-adjustment. Two basic lengths cover all main sail sizes.
EPX BOOM GROM
Specifically tailored towards children and young guns with reduced tube diameter, so that also small hands have a secure grip. Front- and tail-end as well as the length adjustment are super easy to operate. Also on the GROM model the universal curve fits almost all sail types and brands. Two lengths cover the use of a broad range of sail sizes.
