NeilPryde XA Aluminium Boom
VT-JOINT, GLASS FIBER REINFORCED INJECTION MOLDING: The NeilPryde VT-Joint provides a stiff boom connection and a more responsive transmission of the sail’s power than any other system used in the market.
> Increases contact area from the boom attachment to the mast.
> It can be used on any standard diameter mast.
> Reduces chance of point loading.
> Minimises ‘play’ between the boom and mast connection.
> Allows easy adjustment of boom height.
The mast cup provides 2 points of contact between the cup and the mast, creating a tight connection and ensuring great transmission of power. The V-Shape accommodates variation in standard mast diameters. Slightly thinner masts simply sit further into the V while fatter ones sit further out.
The VT-Joint is standard on all NeilPryde booms with an oversized ‘Glass fiber reinforced injection molding’ mast cup material tailored to suit each XA boom.
MONOCOQUE WIDE ALUMINIUM TAIL EXTENSION: It guarantees not only less contour friction but also helps the sail maintain its intended profile and free movement between the arms of the boom, whether you are fully powered or rigging the sail as full as possible for light wind conditions.
LOOP-TO-HOOK OUTHAUL SYSTEM: guarantees low friction with no crossing lines for a free sail movement. Identical geometry as used in the XC wave booms.
TRIM-PIN LEVER DESIGN: (Double insert with an easy locking and opening lever). Provides ease of tail adjustment, optimal load distribution and a stiff connection between the boom body and tail end.
INTEGRATED BOOM LEVER for easy locking and opening. Designed with a reduced surface area and lighter weight.
SHIM: Removable clickable RDM V-Shape mast shim adaptor.
EXTRA PULLEY integrated in the system allows use of single sided adjustable outhaul on wave or freeride sails.
EVA GRIP: Embossed 3D structure on the outside of the boom to offer more grip, comfort and greater durability. Harness line position indicators.
