2013 North Gold RS Boom

$533.00 — $544.00

After intensive research and development North has created the GOLD RS, a new high-tech alloy boom which is designed purely for race usage. The GOLD RS is produced with NorthSails unique BONDED.TECHNOLOGY. The boom arms and the head are “melted” together with special aerospace-standard glue.

This exclusive production technology in combination with a material mix of T8 alloy and ALU.TITAN (ALU.TITAN.HYBRID.CONSTRUCTION) has enabled a quantum jump in terms of durability and stiffness. This technology also has been applied to the three-piece tail-end that is produced in the same BONDED.TECHNOLOGY method using the same materials.

The tail-end-fitting (patent pending) with rollers made of Teflon-POM plastic ensuring minimum friction is also a new addition. In addition now all models feature an increased 30mm tube diameter again increasing the bending strength. As a result the new GOLD RS boom almost reaches the stiffness of a high-end carbon boom. This is also due to the revolutionary OVERSIZED.OUTSIDE tail end concept (now used for all lengths). This means that in comparison to thinner internally placed tail ends, the boom maintains stiffness even at full extension.
