The all new Gaastra race boom

“We have two sizes for wave and freestyle, along with three race sizes each having monocoque one piece carbon tail pieces, which we introduce to you today.

The Outline curves are optimised based on target sail sizes and the back ends come with different widths for each boom length making for a perfectly integrated rig. The Race back ends comes with a built in pulley system for adjustable outhauls.

Oversized front and tail sections for increased stiffness, reduced diameter in the grip area for increased comfort and ergonomics. A textured grip section in the grip area increases the traction.  A stiff mast cup for direct force transmission between the boom and mast makes the connection rock solid.
A long closing lever for easy opening and closure while rigging.

The new high tech Gaastra front end is built out of reinforced Plastic for more stiffness, better power load for more performance and lighter weight for better handling.

The new monocoque arms and back ends are built out of the best 100% Carbon quality composite technology. The all new Gaastra molds are produced under extreme heat and pressure to reach the highest level of carbon composite quality.

Gaastra Race Boom 100 % Carbon
The All- New Gaastra Race Boom comes in 3 sizes: 180, 200 and 220. A no compromise racing boom extremely stiff and light. In particular the monocoque molded tail with integrated pulleys is super light and ultra stiff reducing considerably the swing weight which is a very important factor for jibing around the marks of the racing course. The front and back sections are oversized, properly making it the stiffest and lightest boom on the market.

Boom Length Weight Diameter Scale
180-230 cm 2.92 kg 32.2 mm Carbon
200-260 cm 3.24 kg 32.2 mm Carbon
220-280 cm 3.64 kg 32.2 mm Carbon
