Point-7 CARBON+ Boom Gabelbaum
VERSANDKOSTENFREI innerhalb Deutschlands !!!
The boom is what we feel with our hands when sailing. It?s what makes
us feel the wind in the sail. A alu boom does not have to have only a
good price, a carbon boom does not only have to feel light and stiff.
There is a lot more behind the boom which is more important than these
It needs to bring comfort and safety. It has to be practical. With
the Point-7 Black Team the main focus to start from was the curve of the
boom. This is not about having a curve of the new generation as many
might call it. It?s about of having a curve which allows pure front and
back arm to sit in a comfortable position while sailing, automatically
positioning the sail in the right angle for the wind to enter and exit.
This stance varies with the wind strength and windsurfing discipline.
The needs of a wave boom curve is very different from the curve for a
slalom boom. Also a slalom boom for strong wind, is very different from a
boom for light wind slalom. One needs to offer control and the other
power. You can have the lightest and stiffest boom, but if this main
fact is wrong then, the boom will feel heavy and uncomfortable.
The stiffness on carbon boom are also very important. The right mix
between reflex and comfort need to be found. This can be done by a good
mix between the flexibility of the front head and the tubes. The weight
needs to be front oriented on the boom, leaving the tail end of the boom
light. A heavy tail-end will make a light boom in general feel even
more heavy then it really is.
We worked a lot on diameters. Giving a grip of 25mmon the wave boom
and 28mm on the slalom boom. This way less power is needed to hold on
for the forearms, allowing a lot more hours on the water even if not
Yes weight is important and needs to be in the right place. Stiffness
is important and needs to bring comfort. The alu boom needs to be ready
to hold on to 2 years of heavy hammering and not deform in gusts.
These are only a few facts on what the development team, together with the black team, has put into their books.
Monocoque carbon tail, 58cm extension, with moulded holes. 2cm easy
adjustments settings. 25mm reduced diameter carbon monocoque body where
the hands sit, offering a soft and sanded anti slip pro grip: Less hand
strength needed for a firm grip on the boom. The tubes are having an
octagonal shape for firmer grip. The back part of the tubes increase to
29 offering a stiffer and lighter weight. Double push pin for a stiffer
connection between boom body and tail end. Easy positioning marks for
the harness lines. Double push pin to provide constant load distribution
and a stiff connection between the boom body and tail extension. Wide
head fitting on the mast for extra stiffness. Front head tilts according
to fitting height on the mast, but does not tilt from side to side.
With very little rope tension, the head does not slip on the mast. Fits
perfect RDM adaptors.
