VT-JOINT, FORGED CARBON: The NeilPryde VT-Joint provides a stiff boom connection and a more responsive transmission of the sail’s 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. p>
> 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 simply sit further into the V while fatter ones sit further out.
The VT-Joint is standard on all NeilPryde booms with an oversized ‘Forged carbon’ mast cup material tailored to suit each XC boom.
