iBASE 2.0 SERIESDetails
One for all – just one base for all conditions. We are 100% convinced that absolutely everyone in all conditions and for all disciplines needs only one base. The flexibility and ease of de/attaching makes the need for different bases and systems simply obsolete. All these unique features do not lead to any additional weight, something other bases in the market cannot claim to achieve! Some call it fanaticism; we call it attention to detail. Even in supposedly unimportant components there is a lot of potential, you just have to realize it.
This requires the courage to think differently and to patiently rethink or question even proven designs. That`s exactly what our engineers have done together with the team when it came to developing a completely new, universal mast base system. The top priority in addition to the functionality was the requirement to create ONE single, uncompromising system for ALL conditions. The result is the iBASE 2.0, the lowest mast base system with central screw!

Joint for iBASE
iBASE 2.0 SERIESFeatures
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 or replacing 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.
For all hardcore freaks the release button can optionally be fixed with a screw now.
The most innovative tendon when it comes to performance and safety.
Instead of the usual polyurethane material we use a BASF high-tech material for the connecting string, which is about 50% tougher and more durable. Another advantage of this exclusive tendon material is that it avoids the usual offset between rig and board slowing you down. That‘s why the iTENDON is the first choice of many PWA competitors as it offers a more direct power transmission between rig and board than any other tendon out there.
Maximum security is granted through the new DYNEEMA.SAFETY.SYSTEM – a highest quality Dyneema kite line that is integrated into the BASF tendon guarantees absolute safety. Extremely lightweight, extremely tear-resistant and absolutely stretch-free.
For maximum durability the top and bottom parts are milled out of single V2A stainless steel blocks.
Identical to iTENDON, the SHOX-version comes equipped with the revolutionary Shox-attachment instead of the North pin. Thus, the iTENDON.SHOX is compatible with all extensions of the SHOX SERIES and makes the iBASE the ideal fitting base.
This version features the legendary, slightly softer original PowerJoint durex. Together with the large cross-section this guarantees maximum longevity.
Since the North-pin has been established as the standard on the market for decades, the joint can directly be used with approx. 90% of all mast extensions on the market. (Attention: long pin not compatible with extensions using a pin-through adjustment ring, like e.g. EPX.XT RDM)
Should the iBASE 2.0 ever become stuck to the board after long storage times, now two holes allow using a screwdriver as a lever to release the base.
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.
The exclusive washer plate is produced in a 2-phase moulding process (like an electric toothbrush). The white upper side consists of a low friction POM material effectively reducing the force necessary to tighten the iBASE 2.0 onto the board. The bottom side is over-moulded using a special rubber-mixture to avoid any slippage of the iBASE 2.0.
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!

“Since most PWA competitors have realized the advantages of the iBASE 2.0 even riders from other brands started buying this base from us instead of getting a different base for free from their sponsors.”
