Admit it – you know you want it. PLATINUM AERO 3.0 is the lightest boom in the world (140-180: 1.65 kg | 190-250: 2.85 kg) and the ultimate choice in terms of technology, weight and quality manufacturing. However, because of the incredibly sophisticated manufacturing process, there is only an extremely limited number available (on a first-come, first-served basis). Thanks to the highest-quality mix of materials and unique production methods, it is an astonishing 250-400 g lighter than its otherwise very lightweight PLATINUM SLS counterpart. Despite its slimmed-down design, the PLATINUM AERO 3.0 features sensational stiffness, ultra-direct feel and range-specific features
and bend curves, which make it a must-have for high-performance riders. Even though the AERO 3.0 is only available in two different lengths they all possess the performance and equipment features of the PLATINUM SLS boom (see below). However, a warning is in order: high-end technology has its price, so don’t be surprised. NEW: the 140-180 Mega Slim features the brand-new VTS TAIL fitting. In combination with the 2022 Duotone sails, the VTS TAIL fitting offers for the first time a clear visual indication for the perfect outhaul tension (patent pending).
EXCLUSIVE & ULTRALIGHT
The lightest and most exclusive boom on Earth
VTS TAIL FITTING
With the integrated visual indicator and rope markings, you can have the perfect trim every session
100% T900 Carbon Prepreg + SENTEX Resin
Ultimate in technology, weight and processing. 400g lighter than the platinum boom
iFront 2.0 – The lightest moulded front-end on Earth
140 – Inside gripped tail with iTail Wave fitting
190 – Outside tail with iTail Race fitting
Since 1992 all our sails feature VTS dots clearly showing the right downhaul tension. With the introduction of the VTS TAIL we have finally made the correct outhaul tension visible as well. Due to the integrated visual indicator and rope markings, now you have the perfect outhaul trim every session.
INSIDE GRIPPED TAIL
THE ULTIMATE TAIL-END GRIP! The EVA-gripped tail-end guarantees anti-slip. A reduced diameter of the inside tail-end additionally increases grip-comfort up to a maximum.
PROTECTION GRIP INSERT
MORE RESISTANT! The high-density EVA grip insert at the outside guarantees maximum abrasion resistance during rigging.
THE LIGHTEST FRONT-END ON EARTH!
A VERTICAL STIFFNESS: We use 50% longer stainless steel axle-bolts which are directly connected to the side walls. We obtain a maximum vertical/torsional stiffness, which results in an extremely direct connection/transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance).
B HORIZONTAL FLEXIBILITY: The partially recessed center of the collar gives the iFRONT 2.0 a hinge like function, so that the collar fits to any mast diameter without gap (= extremely slip resistant). We know of no other front-end that fits so smoothly around the mast and thus effectively protects the mast.
