Aluminium boom NEILPRYDE X-FS (Slim)
The X-FS boom is the best and stiffest aluminum boom NeilPryde has ever designed and the best alternative to carbon booms.”PRESSURE FLOW FORGED” ALUMINUM HEAD – Technology allows for shaping of exceptionally stiff aluminum moulded head tubing. This process increases the density of the aluminum and provides the ability to control wall thickness resulting in a far stronger head. Further, NeilPryde insert the boom arms inside the head tubes, Increasing arms stiffness and strength. The X-FS features reduced grip diameter to cover needs of people with smaller hands and decrease arms fatigue.

LOOP-TO-HOOK OUTHAUL SYSTEM
Super fast, easy and intuitive rigging guarantees low friction with no crossing lines for free sail movement. Identical geometry inspired by the XC wave boom system.
The NeilPryde VT-Joint provides a stiff boom connection and a more responsive transmission of the sail power than any other system used in the market.
- Increases contact area from the boom attachment to the mast. > It can be used on any standard diameter mast.
- Reduces chance of point loading.
- Minimises play between the boom and mast connection.
- Allows easy adjustment of boom height.
The mast cup provides 2 points of contact between the cup and the mast, creating a tight connection and ensuring great transmission of power. The V-Shape accommodates variation in standard mast diameters. Slightly thinner masts sit further into the V, while wider ones sit further out. The VT-Joint is standard on all NeilPryde booms. Additionally, it comes with an oversized forged carbon mast cup material tailored to suit each XC boom.
Embossed 3D structure on the outside of the boom to offer more grip, comfort and greater durability. Harness line position indicators.
Removable clickable RDM V-Shape mast shim adaptor.
INTEGRATED BOOM LEVER
