4.5m, 5.5m, 6.5m: The Starboard Classic version describes the rig package that uses a two-piece mast and a two-piece boom. improved sail design with a longer second batten, stiffer boom clamp and a more durable universal joint.
4.5m, 5.5m, 6.5m: The Starboard Compact version of the sail package. With its four-piece mast and three-piece boom, everything collapses into a smaller bag that’s convenient to carry and store. Improved sail design with a longer second batten, stiffer boom clamp and a more durable universal joint.
UPGRADED BOOM HEAD
The boom head clamp has been redesigned for a better fit around the mast, thus requiring less pressure to grip. The lever is also slightly longer, stiffer and more ergonomic to allow riders of all ages and sizes to close the boom head easily.
BOOM CLIP WITH DOUBLE PINS
The boom clips with double pins are secure and durable. The boom end uses a loop-n-go system. Loop the rope through the sail and onto the hook. Pull the end and lock it in. Just like on the extension, correct settings for light wind and high wind conditions are marked on the boom adjustment holes to make rigging easy.
The Classic uses a two-piece reduced diameter 20% carbon mast and the Compact uses a four-piece reduce diameter carbon mast. The RDM masts are more reliable and make the sails feel smooth and light on the water.
With the adapter collar, you get an SDM (Standard Mast Diameter) extension. Remove the adapter collar and you have an RDM (Reduced Diameter Mast) extension: 2 in 1. The top adapter collar is a screw cap so it won’t get lost. This external lever clicks on in a snap: great for those who want to be able to release the rig from the mast foot and board without getting sore thumbs.
The R+SDM aluminium extension is included for the Compact and Classic 4.5m, 5.5m and 6.5m packages.
The downhaul 3-roller hook pulley makes down hauling hassle-free. Downhaul line comes connected to the hook pulley for even faster and simple rigging. Just hook it to the grommet and downhaul all the way.
The mechanical universal joint is great for inflatable boards as it puts less stress than a conventional rubber joint on the board when the sail is lying flat in the water.
The sails come with a bag made of a RPET 450D outer fabric layer made from recycled plastic bottles, in partnership with Waste2Wear. The bottles are chopped into flakes, washed, melted and extruded into yarns and then spun into a fabric. Between 30 to 50 bottles are used per bag. Bottles that now re-enter the market again, without risk of polluting the environment. Ripstop weaving technology improves wear and tear resistance.
The Classic Package bag is 230 cm (90″) long. The Compact Package bag is just 120 cm (48″) long.
