2018 J-Shapes Mast (mast only)
The 95cm mast is your “go to” mast, it can do it all under any conditions.
It will allow the rider to lean hard upwind, float you downwind without touching down and help you glide through your transitions. The mast flares at the top and bottom of the mast to reduce torsion and reinforce the connection points.
It comes with a Deep Tuttle (Recommended) or Tuttle box at the top. The mini tuttle at the bottom fits easily into the fuselage.
The four stainless inserts are custom made to our specification. They are interchangeable. They are the 12mm diameter so if you are travelling you can easily find a spare if you need to.
It is made in-house in Raglan, New Zealand. The mast is made of over 30 pieces of prepreg carbon with a closed cell foam core. Almost all the pieces of carbon run the entire length of the mast so that the top and bottom inserts are going through the same piece of carbon. It is made with a mix of twill, Uni-directional and Biaxial prepreg carbon. The leading and trailing edge of the foil is solid carbon and epoxy. This mast is made to play so you don’t have to worry about your gear, just focus on your riding.
The mast can be finished with white Durapox or Mat Carbon
The advantage of the white Durapox is that it does not heat up in the sun and protects the carbon from UV’s that are tough in NZ and Australia. It also allows the owner of the foil to have a race finish like the America’s Cup boats. Also, if you hit or scratch your mast you can sand it or build it back up very easily.
