The SILVER SERIES booms are manufactured using our BONDED.TECHNOLOGY featuring a 7075 high-tech aluminum; famously used 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 SERIES offers massive advantages in durability. We are so convinced by this technology that we are giving 2 year full warranty, even including bending!
The SILVER SERIES body consists of 3 segments and features a one-piece alloy tail-end plus the iFRONT 2.0, the lightest front-end on earth.
The length-specific RDM tubes with a 28mm or 30mm diameter (starting at 180 cm) combine super-high rigidity with great comfort.
The NewSchool bend-curve of the lengths 140, 150 and 160 cm ensures a uniform pull onto front- and backhand.
Further more the entire SILVER SERIES line is equipped with our exclusive iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING which guarantees a perfect friction-free rope alignment (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 with three different length- and range-specific bend curves are available, making the SILVER SERIES fit perfectly for all sails from Wave up to Performance.
The lightest front-end on earth!
The technical masterpiece which makes all NorthSails booms even more functional: iFRONT 2.0 the latest front-end of the next generation.
It doesn’t just look slimmer and smoother, the iFRONT 2.0 is also a whopping 35% lighter than its predecessor! With 345 grams it is the lightest front-end on the market!
90% of all other booms on the market are equipped with the same front-end from China, which usually differs only in color or design details. Especially in major components we at NorthSails are investing heavily in research and development to be far ahead of the competition. A prime example of this is the completely redesigned and absolutely unique iFRONT 2.0 front-end; it combines maximum ease of use with highest functionality, lowest weight and guaranteed durability.
For the first time the construction of the iFRONT 2.0 combines the advantages of both concepts in one front-end:
A Vertical stiffness: Unlike other front-ends we use 50% longer stainless steel axle-bolts which are directly connected to the side walls. Thus we obtain a maximum vertical/torsion stiffness, which results in an extremely direct connection/transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance).
B Horizontal flexibility: The partially recessed center of the collar gives the iFRONT 2.0 a kind of hinge function, so that the collar fits to any mast diameter without any gap (= very smooth on the mast and extremely slip resistant). We know of no other front-end that fits so smoothly around the mast and thus effectively protects the mast.
This exceptional fit is guaranteed on SDM as well as RDM masts as the iFRONT 2.0 can easily be adapted through the exchange of 2 different friction pads.
It is an open secret that different conditions require front-ends with different vertical/torsional stiffness so that the rig can develop its maximum potential yet the comfort doesn’t suffer. For this reason, we deliver the new iFRONT 2.0 in two different stiffness options that are tailored to the individual disciplines and requirements:
- Stiffness I with 15% vertical flexibility has a very low flex for direct power transmission yet maximum control and comes with all RED, SILVER, as well as GOLD and PLATINUM (up to 170) booms.
- Stiffness III with 0% vertical flexibility for uncompromizing torsion-stiffness and maximum performance on large sails comes with all GOLD and PLATINUM (190 and up) booms.
Of course, we remain true to our promise of long-term compatibility even with the iFRONT 2.0. Therefore it is 100% retro-compatible with older NorthSails booms that can be upgraded and tuned.
Lighter and stronger than all!
Light is right but only if it doesn’t go to costs of durability.
Durability as part of the NorthSails quality has always been one of the defining characteristics of our products – and it stays that way. Because despite offering the lightest components on the market we hold firmly to the course of our tried and true quality claim. This is ensured by new constructions, higher quality and more effectively used materials combined with new processing technologies.
The legendary NorthSails longevity is therefore retained completely, which we guarantee for you with an industry-leading 2.YEAR.UNCONDITIONAL.WARRANTY!
The high-density EVA grip insert at the outside guarantes maximum abrasion resistance during rigging.
Equal load on both hands and improved handling
Also the short booms now feature a 4 cm wider tail-end moving your back-hand further away from the sail. For the first time now your back- and front-hand are equally angled making sailing less fatigue. You immediately realize this much more relaxed sailing position no matter if going in a straight line or down the line on a wave. The second advantage is a much improved handling during ducking maneuvers.
Minimum weight and unmatched features
Especially on carbon booms most brands integrate the fittings into the tail-end to generate a clean look. We prefer external fittings to achieve 3 crucial advantages:
- Much lower weight
- Features and functions which no other brand can offer (see iTAIL.RACE.FITTING and iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING)
- If need be super easy to exchange
Rigging without threading – even when using an adjustable outhaul-system
The ultimate highlight is the all new iTAIL.RACE fitting. The teflon-POM synthetics build rollers feature a minimum of friction. Additionally, this unique solution allows to loop the rope even when using an adjustable outhaul-kit!
Frictionless alignment plus excess rope storage
The iTAIL.WAVE fitting offers 2 revolutionary details:
A The patented LOOP.LOOP.GO 2.0 function guarantees an ideal 100% frictionless alignment of the rope!
B Instead of tying the excess rope around the tube you just wrap it around the integrated “bridge” at the bottom side – the cleanest and fastest solution ever!
