North Sails boom RED WAVE SERIES

Sporty allround boom produced in high technology North Sails BONDED.TECHNOLOGY and new bend-curve.

The boom arms and the head are “melted“ together with special aerospace-standard glue. The brand-new iFRONT 2.0 ensures maximum comfort and the easiest handling as its flex and stiffness are perfectly adjusted towards the demands of the target group.

The North Sails Gabel Red Wave Series boom features an ultra-modern PROGRESSIVE.BENDCURVE and a thin reduced diameter of 28mm. An additional contribution to safety and superior comfort comes from the DOUBLE.PIN.LOCK system, which firmly locks the boom while preventing the tubes from twisting. Also new is the PROTECTION.GRIP, an extra stiff EVA stripe on the outside of the tubes, which effectively prevents surface damage when rigging. Due to its progressive wide new school bend-curve the boom is extremly comfortable and suits almost all type of sails from all brands.

North Sails iFRONT 2.0 - the lightest Front-End on Earth

The technical masterpiece which makes all NorthSails booms even more functional: iFRONT 2.0 the latest new and improved in all aspects headpiece of the next generation.

90% of all other booms on the market are equipped with the same front-end from China, which usually differs only in color or design details. Especially in major components we at North Sails are investing heavily in research and development to be far ahead of the competition. A prime example of this is the completely redesigned and absolutely unique iFRONT 2.0 front-end; it combines maximum ease of use with highest functionality, low weight and guaranteed durability.

Currently, two different front-end systems are offered on the market:

1. The performance-oriented design (NeilPryde, North Sails iFRONT 1.0). These are uncompromisingly rigid front-ends in ALL directions, offering maximum vertical (torsional) stiffness. This leads to an extremely direct connection / transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance). Whilst this construction offers no horizontal flex which is where the performance aspects come into play the adaptation to different mast diameters is possible only via a V-geometry of the collar, this can lead to point loading of the mast, which increases the risk of slipping and also breakage.

2. The "cuddly" construction (Aeron and all OEM versions that are used on 90% of all booms). This front-end flexes in ALL directions and the soft sidewalls of the collar adapt to any mast diameter. This protects the mast and avoids slippage. The disadvantage is that the soft sidewalls offer just a very low vertical (torsional) stiffness = low performance.

For the first time the construction of the new iFRONT 2.0 combines the advantages of both concepts in one front-end:

A. The sidewalls are designed to be extremely stiff (= maximum vertical stiffness), which results in an extremely direct connection / transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance)

B. The partially recessed center of the collar gives the iFRONT 2.0 a kind of hinge function, so that the collar fits to any mast diameter without any gap (= very smooth on the mast and extremely slip resistant)

The STREAMLINER.DESIGN has aerodynamic as well as weight-oriented advantages. It doesn’t just look slimmer and smoother; the iFRONT 2.0 is also a whopping 20% lighter than its predecessor.

The maximum vertical stiffness of the iFRONT 2.0 is achieved through a unique construction using special high quality materials, resulting in a very direct and effective power transmission.

Thanks to the finely tuned horizontal flexibility of the new collar the front-end will fit any mast diameter without any play, avoiding point loading. We know of no other front-end that fits so smoothly around the mast and thus effectively protects the mast. This exceptional fit is guaranteed on SDM as well as RDM masts and the iFRONT 2.0 can be adapted within seconds.


It is an open secret that different conditions require front-ends with different vertical/torsional stiffness so that the rig can develop its maximum potential yet the comfort doesn’t suffer. For this reason, we deliver the new iFRONT 2.0 in two different stiffness options that are tailored to the individual disciplines and requirements:

- Stiffness V1 with 30% vertical flexibility that ensures a certain degree of flex and thus increased comfort. All all-round-oriented RED booms are equipped with this version.

- Stiffness V2 with 10% vertical flexibility has only a very low flex for the most direct power transmission and comes with all SILVER, GOLD and PLATINUM booms.


Of course, we remain true to our promise of long-term compatibility even with the iFRONT 2.0. Therefore it is 100% retro-compatible with older North Sails booms that can be upgraded and tuned.
