Starboard Aluminium mast V8
Starboard Aluminium mast V8 + Quicklook II
19mm thick and thicker walls: the new V8 profile makes the mast extremely stiff. The cross-sectional area is the same as the V7 mast, resulting in the same mast weight per cm.
3cm narrower: the reduced chord adds more glide and flying efficiency.
NEW TOP PLATE
The new V8 Top Plate continues to use Starboard Foils' innovative side-bolts solution for a rock-solid connection. A generous fillet radius was added at base to further stiffen the connection between mast and board.
Compared to the V7 system, we lose the Deep Tuttle adaptability since the new V8 mast is 19mm thick: thicker than a Deep Tuttle box.
NEW FUSELAGE ADAPTER
The connection between mast and fuselage uses an new aluminium CNC-machined adapter, for maximum connection stiffness.
2x STIFFER 2x STRONGER
In 2019, Starboard Foils introduced the quickest foil assembly system with Quick Lock.
For 2022, we introduce Quick Lock II: with 55% more thickness and a new Lock-Slot, the front wing connection becomes twice as stiff and twice as strong for impeccable control and flight stability.
