North Sails boom PLATINUM RACE SERIES

Ultimate World-Cup Race boom for the highest demands. Naturally produced in high-quality North Sails AEROSPACE CARBON TECHNOLOGY PREPREG and in FULL MONOCOQUE with an ultra modern race bending curve.

The carbon PLATINUM is the ultimate in AEROSPACE.PREPREG.TECHNOLOGY and a 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!

We are so convinced by this technology that we are giving 2 years full warranty on all Platinum booms, even including bending*!


The Platinum Race sizes, however, feature extensive Race/Formula bend-curves and are equipped with the innovative iFRONT 2.0 head. Propelling forces are transferred entirely free from play and directly via the iFRONT 2.0 head. All PLATINUM.RACE booms come with individual OUTSIDE.TAIL.ENDs for 20% increased stiffness.
The 190cm and 240cm sizes have the same boom body, and are extremely extendable thanks to two OVERSIZED.OUTSIDE tail-ends of different lengths avoiding to loose stiffness even when fully extended! This means that in comparison to thinner internally placed tail ends, the boom maintains its stiffness even at full extension. The Platinum 170cm has the same but smaller body.
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).
Also new is the PROTECTION.GRIP, an extra stiff EVA stripe on the outside of the tubes, which effectively prevents surface damage when rigging. 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.

The Platinum Race boom is the undisputed leader in professional carbon boom area after an intensive work with World Cup pros. He matches 100% on uncompromising race usage. He fits naturally with all sail types of all brands!
He is not less than the lightest and stiffest carbon boom on the market!

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.
