XA ALUMINUM BOOM
The NeilPryde VT-Joint provides a stiff boom connection and a more responsive transmission of the sail power than any other system used in the market.
- Increases contact area from the boom attachment to the mast.
- It can be used on any standard diameter mast.
- Reduces chance of point loading.
- Minimises play between the boom and mast connection.
- Allows easy adjustment of boom height.
The mast cup provides 2 points of contact between the cup and the mast, creating a tight connection and ensuring great transmission of power.
The V-Shape accommodates variation in standard mast diameters.
Slightly thinner masts sit further into the V, while wider ones sit further out. The VT-Joint is standard on all NeilPryde booms. Additionally, it comes with an oversized forged carbon mast cup material tailored to suit each XC boom.
OPTIMIZED CLEAT ANGLE
The new optimized cleat angle makes tightening and loosening super easy. It also ensures that the rope never loosens or moves unintentionally during the session.
INTEGRATED BOOM LEVER
Integrated boom lever for easy locking and opening. Designed with a reduced surface area and lighter weight.
TRIM-PIN LEVER DESIGN
Double insert with an easy locking and opening lever. It provides ease of tail adjustment, optimal load distribution and a stiff connection between the boom body and tail end.
