Armstrong performance mast 935 specifications:
Armstrong wanted to create a new, cutting-edge mast that would maximize performance for riders who push themselves and their equipment to the limits. Based on feedback received, Armstrong foils designed this mast to minimize drag and ventilation while also being ultra stiff and highly responsive.
Armstrong worked with a team of America's Cup foil engineers to design a high-performance carbon mast that would be ready for the future. The goal was to create a mast that was strong, stiff, lightweight, and had minimal drag. Using CFD analysis and collective expertise, Armstrong was able to optimize each section of the mast from the baseplate to the fuselage connection for maximum efficiency.
" To ensure optimal strength and designed flex, we tested over 100 prototypes made from the latest premium composites, using various fiber orientations. In line with our philosophy of combining strength and light weight, we also redesigned the mast top geometry to reduce the weight as much as possible"-Armie Armstrong
According to structural analysis, a combination of high modulus (HM) and intermediate modulus (IM) carbon fibers is the best way to distribute loads throughout the various sections of the mast. HM fibers provide stiffness to minimize flex in the central strut area, while IM fibers offer high tensile strength for the complex shapes of the top plate and fuselage connection.
The result of this process is a top-of-the-line mast made from top-quality materials, featuring a new mast section, refined baseplate, fuselage connection with reduced drag, and a new construction method. The mast is also equipped with proprietary titanium M7 hardware at the top, which provides a strong, lightweight, and low-drag connection to the board.
By lifting the nose of the board slightly (1 degree corresponds to a lift of 17.46mm/m), the mast rake angle makes it easier to ride at high speeds without the risk of catching the nose at steep riding angles.
If you want to ride the most advanced foil mast, the Armstrong Performance mast is the answer. Armstrong was able blend high modulus carbon fibers with intermediate modulus carbon fibers creating a mast that is not only stiff but also responsive. The other main feature is the reduction of air ventilation, this means that doesn't matter how hard and angled you carves are, this mast won't suck air down to the foil keeping you always in control.
