The anatomy of the Matrix masts.
NeilPryde Matrix masts take their inspiration from you. Just as the human spine forms the critical load centre for body movement and posture, a good mast acts as a pivotal vertebrae to the sail, maintaining optimum aerofoil with stable, clean and predictable power. Out there, it’s the difference between a wing and a prayer.
Stiffness, strength, flexibility and sensitivity. Almost impossibly, Matrix is all of these and more. Matrix masts are hard-wired with Progressive Flex Bend Curve - a kind of artificial intelligence built in to react dynamically to changes in wind strength and direction. Matrix shares your instinct for self preservation, only it’s reflexes are faster than yours. Now, even in the worst conditions, it’s nice to know you are not alone.
Because every one of our sails is engineered around a specific flex curve and rigidity, you are correct in thinking that optimum performance comes when NeilPryde sails and NeilPryde masts are combined. Together, you’ll get “the feeling” at a whole new level. Besides, your kit looks a whole lot better, too.
- Standard outside diameter mast with high wall thickness for durability
- Construction Process: Filament Winding
- Carbon content: 30%
- For those looking for a price-point, performance mast that has great compatibility with all sails, in all conditions.
