Description

MAST SETS

Wing Sets need a Mast Set to make a complete foil. Choose between Monolithic Carbon and Aluminium V7

Monolithic Carbon mast set available sizes:   72cm // 82cm // 92cm // 102cm

Aluminium V7 mast set available sizes:   72cm // 82cm

 

FOR MAXIMUM STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS:

CHOOSE ALUMINIUM V7

Maximum stiffness and strength. Wall thickness is reduced and three internal cavities are maximised to bring weight down to a minimum. Three load-bearing I-beams run down the length of the mast for maximum strength and stiffness. The front and back stringers are made extra thick and carry vertical loads through two 12mm wide stainless steel barrel nuts.

 72cm // 82cm

FOR MINIMUM WEIGHT AND MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY:

CHOOSE MONOLITHIC CARBON

Maximum efficiency and minimum weight. The base is shaped super-thick to provide maximum stability and rigidity. This thickness tapers down to a narrower chord for enhanced maneuverability and improved efficiency. The rounded leading edge is made to keep turns smooth and precise at any speed. It was easily our favourite new item from the new collection. We were so excited by its performance that we went ahead and made it available in 92cm and 102cm too.

ALUMINIUM V7 MAST DESIGN

The mast’s core is made from extruded Aluminium 6061 that is anodized and then sealed water-tight. The ends are then machined by CNC and spacers made from Akulon (a type of recycled plastic that is extremely tough and stiff) are finally fitted on both ends.

Two side-bolts allow us to maximise connection strength and stiffness without adding wall-thickness. If you undo these bolts and the two vertical bolts, you can remove the top plate mount and (surprise!) there is a Deep Tuttle fitting inside. 2 in 1.

Quick Lock fuselages are split into two pieces: the front piece and the tail piece. The tail piece is supplied with the Wing Set and the front piece is supplied with the Mast Set.

The fuselage front piece needs to be assembled to the mast when you first unbox your Mast Set. Once assembled, this front piece doesn’t need to be removed from the mast anymore.

MONOLITHIC CARBON MAST DESIGN

The top plate is fused with the mast to form one monolithic carbon piece. Four counter-sunk top-plate bolts fit through four beveled aluminium washers for optimum load distribution. The masts are supplied with a separate adhesive foam pad that we don’t recommend using. We find these foam pads reduce the solid connection between rider and foil.

Much of what makes these masts so light, so stiff and so strong needs to remain a Starboard Foils secret recipe. Roughly speaking, Starboard Foils’ Monolithic Carbon masts are made from pre-impregnated ‘ultra’ high modulus carbon layers, orientated along three axis and wrapping a proprietary lightweight core to be pressed under extra-high hydraulic pressure at extra-high curing temperatures.

Quick Lock fuselages are split into two pieces: the front piece and the tail piece. The tail piece is supplied with the Wing Set and the front piece is supplied with the Mast Set.

The fuselage front piece needs to be assembled to the mast when you first unbox your Mast Set. Once assembled, this front piece doesn’t need to be removed from the mast anymore.

TO FLOAT OR NOT TO FLOAT?

The Monolithic Carbon mast set makes your foil light enough to float. Riding the lightest foil makes flying more efficient, more controllable and more reactive.

Some progressing riders may prefer the Aluminium V7 mast that sinks the foil, making it act like a keel and helping to keep the board flat and stable.

SUMMARY

The Aluminium V7 mast sets are very stiff and strong. With an Aluminium V7 mast set, foil weights start from 3.4kg.

Available sizes: 72cm / 82cm

The Monolithic Carbon mast sets are extremely light and stiff, offering incredible efficiency and extra maneuverability. With a Monolithic Carbon mast set, foil weights start from 2.7kg.

Available in sizes 72cm / 82cm / 92cm / 102cm
