The carbon PLATINUM made in AEROSPACE.PREPREG.TECHNOLOGY is an absolute must for performance-oriented experts. Thanks to the mega stiff monocoque construction, it is considered to be the lightest and stiffest boom on the market. It is an open secret that even PWA professionals from other brands now buy the PLATINUM!
To meet the highest requirements, we offer three different models: Wave-Freestyle (140 | 150) Wave-Freeride (160) Slalom/Race (170 | 190 | 240)
Wave-Freestyle Series: The bend-curves of the wave sizes have been completely redesigned for 2015. The smaller opening angle at the front and the wider tail result in the new EVEN.CURVE, which ensures a uniform pull onto front- and backhand. This improves the handling during wave riding and freestyle moves and leaves the rider feeling less fatigue. It comes with the iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING featuring a patented loop-loop-go fitting (perfect friction-free rope alignment) and a complete non-slip EVA gripping! For maximum gripping comfort these models come with an inside tail-end. Thanks to popular demand, we offer the new PLATINUM again in 150 cm length ideally fitting for larger wave sails from 4.2.
Wave-Freeride Series: The Wave-Freeride version with HYBRID.CURVE was developed especially for sail sizes 4.5 to 7.8. This bend curve fits perfectly with these kinds of sail sizes and types. For unique grip comfort and a secure hold during duck jibes, the tail end also features the INSIDE.GRIPPED.TAIL. In addition to being incredibly lightweight, the iFRONT 2.0 front-end and the rigidity of the monocoque construction probably make this the highest quality wave/freeride boom that has ever been produced.
Slalom/Race Series: The new length 170 – 230 cm now also comes with a slim 28,5 mm diameter and an INSIDE.TAIL perfectly suited for smaller slalom sails as well as being an ideal match for freeride/freerace sails. PLATINUM 190 and 240 feature a 30 mm diameter plus an OUTSIDE.TAIL for 20% increased stiffness avoiding the loss of stiffness even when fully extended. These booms come with a mature Slalom/Race bend-curve and are equipped with the iFRONT 2.0 head to ensure minimum torsional flex. Another highlight is the iTAIL.RACE.FITTING featuring low-friction Teflon-POM rollers. Absolutely unique: The rope can be looped even when using an outhaul trim system (patent pending).
