S27 Naish Mast
This year’s mast is available in three constructions. Aluminum, Carbon 35, and Carbon 100.
The new Naish alloy mast features an updated 6061 aircraft grade aluminium extrusion that is nearly 25% stronger with only a nominal weight increase due to a new section architecture that puts more wall thickness at key buckling areas while maintaining the same exterior dimensions and low drag shape of the S26 mast. The new extrusion features a new bonded and screwed board mount (2x M8 and sex bolt) for a rock solid connection.The mast directly connects to the fuselage with 2 M8 screws and uses a molded fuselage connector that functions as a corrosion barrier.
The new Naish C35 monocoque composite mast with it’s integral molded base features 35% UD carbon content and strikes the perfect balance of technology and performance at a great price. Weight is kept to a minimum thanks to a dual expanding foam core, and the smaller profile (shared with the C100 mast) reduces drag dramatically. Corrosion issues are completely eliminated thanks to (2) 12 mm stainless steel inserts laminated into the mast structure and paired with our molded fuselage connector that acts as a corrosion barrier.
Available in 75, 85, 95 and 105 cm lengths.
The new Naish C100 monocoque carbon fiber mast is our most technologically advanced offering to date. Featuring 100% carbon construction that comprises a blend of 3K and UD, this mast features industry leading bending and torsional rigidity for a ‘direct drive’ feel and maximum control, light weight thanks to a dual expanding foam core, and a low drag section optimized for speed and control. Corrosion issues are completely eliminated thanks to (2) 12 mm stainless steel inserts laminated into the mast structure and paired with our molded fuselage connector that acts as a corrosion barrier.
