Power.XT 2.0Details

The greatest invention in Windsurfing history!

Hard to see, but true: The POWER.XT 2.0 has been completely redesigned. Besides the basic idea it has almost nothing in common with its predecessor. From the brand new, extremely solid ratchet mechanism, the simplified release function and the high-strength original LIROS ® Dyneema rope up to the possibility to upgrade the POWER.XT 2.0 with a damper function – the POWER.XT 2.0 can do so much more and everything better.

Since its introduction 12 years ago the POWER.XT is the unmatched standard, when it comes to extensions with trim aids. Anyone who has used it once never wants to be without it. Thanks to the integrated lever it handles all downhaul forces and allows precise trim adjustments and fine tuning even on the water. Even kids can use it to cope the extreme downhaul tension of modern slalom sails. Each profile is adjusted with millimeter precision in seconds. The 15 cm long lever and the power ratio of 1:60 enable absolutely power-saving trimming.

POWER.XT 2.0Features

1. Advantages when setting up the sail:

→ Faster rigging: attach rope-loop – pull on standard-cleat – ratchet, ready!
→ Significantly less power required (power ratio approx. 1/60)
→ No need for trimming tools (e.g. “easy-rig“ or harness hook)

1. Advantages on the water:

→ Adjustments can be made even on the water, increasing as well as releasing (e.g. when the wind speed changes)
→ Increased safety
→ Sail performance and wind range are exploited to the full

Now compatible with all sail brands

The POWER.XT 2.0 features a stainless-steel open pulley enabling loop-loop-go rigging – the fastest and most comfortable way to rig your sail!
The POWER.XT 2.0 is now the first choice even for sails with twisted tack-rollers (e.g. Loft, Naish, Severne). Yet their rope distribution has been taken into account during construction. This tack-roller orientation does not permit a loop-loop-go rigging though, means the rope needs to be threaded.

Instant de-rigging

Due to the modified position of the standard cleat, just place one foot on the extension and pull the rope with a short jerk out of the cleat – done.

Pioneering damping technology

All POWER.XT 2.0 extensions can be upgraded with the unique NorthSails SHOX suspension system (except AERO). SHOX is the first integrated shock absorber, which adds a chassis to the board similar to a full-suspension on a mountain bike. Especially in choppy conditions it smooths out the board and the rig, absorbing chop and the impact after landing. Tests in all leading Windsurf-magazines have proven that the rig doesn’t bump, the rider can convert the wind power much more effective into acceleration making you a proven 2-3 knots faster, and also preserves the equipment and your joints. Whether speed, racing or freeride, the POWER.XT 2.0 in combination with the SHOX.UPGRADE.KIT definitely guarantees more control, more speed and more comfort.
During wave sailing the SHOX suspension system provides cushioned landings and increased board control when going down-the-line as well as when crossing the white water. The upgrade is easily done in a few simple steps. The new, very stiff cup ensures that the suspension tube runs with absolutely no friction, the damping elements respond more sensitively and thereby creates a more enjoyable ride. No wonder that almost all of our top athletes swear by the SHOX option rather than going without! Of course the SHOX.UPGRADE.KIT is available for both POWER.XT 2.0 SDM and RDM in all lengths!

Avoids tangled ropes

All POWER.XT 2.0 feature a slotted top cap. This way you can get rid of the excess rope during storage and transportation.

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!

Slalom Team RiderMarco Lang

“Walking down the PWA racer tents you hear click-clack just everywhere. It is an open secret that approx. 70% of all PWA racers are using the POWER.XT 2.0 no matter which brand they sail for”
