Thread: 2015 Equipment

  1. #71


    Actually, I just checked the 2015 Severne gear on their site and they do again have a lightweight RDM mast – this year coming in at 1.3 for the 4m size.
    (Same as my own Amex Supermodel mast then.)
    Their 90% carbon RDM is probably a bit more durable if you're a rig trasher and the 4m length in that comes in at a respectable 1.6kgs.

    I'm still trying to work out who is making the lightest and stiffest carbon booms and the moment – but weights are often not given in the tech specs.
    A light wave boom should come in at the 2kgs mark but some are as heavy as 3kgs.
    A freeride/slalom blasting boom for 6m+ sails will be heavier and may need to be a bigger tubing diameter to get the required stiffness in that length of boom. For a 160-210 boom, 2.5kgs or less is good.

    They would have to be bloody strong and long lasting as well as light with top performance for that price! I wouldn't spend it 'cos I have similar weight sails that I really like for much less, but I would like to try one. They must be confident they have something special to charge that. Once non-sponsored people start using them we will find out...

    Good one!
    Just because you shout loudest don't mean that you're right!
