NorthSails are proud to release their 2013 Hardware range, which includes:

Light, lighter, the lightest!
Back in 2002 this was already the case with the design study VIPER AERO. Back then it showed the limits of feasibility. Weighing in at less than one kilo this mast still holds the world record. Unfortunately, this limited production series was suitable only for flat-water use. With the radical PLATINUM AERO 2013 we introduce a dignified ultra-light successor that is much more advanced than the former design study. By processing the revolutionary, ultra lightweight D4.SHIELD this mast achieves minimum weight combined with unexpected durability. In concrete: laboratory tests prove that 85% of the fractional values of a regular PLATINUM mast are achieved! An absolutely sensational result, which is why the new PLATINUM AERO is not only the lightest, but definitely also most durable mast in its class!

One for all, all in one! A completely new, universal mast base system. The top priority in addition to the functionality was a requirement to create ONE single, uncompromising system for ALL conditions. The result is the iBASE, the lowest mast base system with central screw! A highly functional base with an extremely low profile, is lightweight but virtually indestructible and provides numerous benefits in handling and tuning options.
