North Sails i-Base and Tendon
We have always been annoyed having to unscrew the base from the board after the surf session with tired hands, just so the board fits into the board bag. And: Why do you have to unscrew the joint from the base when changing the joint? Both annoyances are a thing of the past with the iBASE 2.0. The iBASE features a convenient sand-resistant release option, which allows you to remove the connection joint by simply pulling the stainless steel U-wire. Or for the first time ever have the free choice of different kind of joints.
2. Even safer!
A: For all hardcore freaks the release button now optionally can be fixed with a screw (PERMA.LOCK.OPTION).
B: Should the iBASE ever become stuck to the board after long storage times, now two holes allow using a screwdriver as a lever to release the base.
3. Low profile, extreme durability
To guarantee that the iBASE 2.0 can be attached and detached without any tools, it was deliberately designed with a central screw. Although these solutions usually require a relatively high profile, our engineers have found a solution that makes it the lowest base of its kind. Since there is nothing in the way, the risk of injury to feet and toes is as small as possible.
In contrast to conventional mast bases, which are made of Zytel plastic, the new iBASE is the only one produced using the much stiffer material called POM, which improves the durability.
