NeilPryde 2012 Mast Extensions
2011-08-16 / Extensions
New for 2012: all extensions are now fully integrated with stainless steel cleat/pulley bottom assemblies. Until now this feature was exclusive to our top of the line MXT extensions. This year it has been redesigned to become lighter and stronger and is used across the range.

The weight has been reduced by eliminating all unnecessary plastic while increasing the cross-section of stainless steel parts for increased strength. This part can now withstand over 900kg of downhaul load – twice as much as used on the largest racing sails.

The special geometry with tilt bottom pulley makes perfect sail pulley/rope alignment. This allows the sail to be downhauled all the way down (block-to-block) and it reduces downhauling friction.

The new specific UXT RDM features this same integrated stainless steel component but specially designed to be small and streamlined.

Also new for 2012: we are introducing the MXT 34 and 48 SDM Carbon and the MXT 34 RDM Carbon Extensions which offer the best weight to stiffness ratio creating very light but also extremely strong extensions.
