The 100% carbon PLATINUM SERIES booms made in AEROSPACE.PREPREG.TECHNOLOGY are an absolute must for performance-oriented experts. Thanks to the mega stiff monocoque construction, it is considered to have the best weight to stiffness ratio on the market. It is an open secret that even PWA professionals from other brands are buying our PLATINUM booms!
To meet the individual requirements, we offer three different models:
Wave-Freestyle (140 | 150)
Slalom/Race (170 | 190 | 240)
On a shorter boom your front-hand is positioned closer to the front-end/mast. To avoid the front-hand ending up in the curved area thus leading to cramped forearms the curved area on these short booms is moved forward. The result is our NEW.SCHOOL.CURVE which also ensures a very uniform pull onto front- and back-hand. This improves the handling during wave riding and freestyle moves and leaves the rider feeling less fatigue. The 140 and 150 lengths are also equipped with our exclusive iTAIL.WAVE.FITTING featuring a patented loop-loop-go fitting (perfect friction-free rope alignment) and a complete non-slip EVA gripping! For maximum gripping comfort these models come with an inside tail-end. Thanks to popular demand, we offer the new PLATINUM again in 150 cm length ideally fitting for larger wave sails from 4.2.
The Wave-Freeride version with HYBRID.CURVE was developed especially for sail sizes 4.5 to 7.8. This bend-curve fits perfectly with these kinds of sail sizes and types. For unique grip comfort and a secure hold during duck jibes, the tail-end also features the INSIDE.GRIPPED.TAIL. In addition to being incredibly lightweight, the iFRONT 2.0 front-end and the rigidity of the monocoque construction make it the highest quality wave/freeride boom we have ever produced.
The new length 170 – 230 cm now also comes with a slim 28,5 mm diameter and an INSIDE.TAIL perfectly suited for smaller slalom sails as well as being an ideal match for freeride/freerace sails.
PLATINUM 190 and 240 feature a 30 mm diameter plus an OUTSIDE.TAIL for 20% increased stiffness avoiding the loss of stiffness even when fully extended. These booms come with a mature Slalom/Race bend-curve and are equipped with the iFRONT 2.0 head to ensure minimum torsional flex.
Another highlight is the iTAIL.RACE.FITTING featuring low-friction Teflon-POM rollers. Absolutely unique: For super fast rigging and de-rigging the rope can be looped even when using an outhaul trim system (patent pending).
