SPX65 mast is now the lowest carbon content mast in our range with 65% carbon content. Thanks to the added fiberglass prepreg layers in the lamination process it is virtually indestructible. Use of fiberglass results in considerably thicker walls making the mast immune to ovalization under compression as well as very resistant to impact damage. In weight it is very close to the previous FLX70 range and we believe this is the minimum carbon content we should recommend for a NeilPryde sail.
The new NeilPryde mast program is based around three performance levels: TPX100, SPX90-95 and SPX65.
All new masts are made using pre-preg technology that ensures optimum control of resin content and resin distribution throughout the laminate (avoiding risk of dry spots that could cause local weakness).
All new masts are featuring our unique Progressive Flex & Bend Curve, compatible with previous sail models. Higher performance level masts will have higher carbon content reducing the weight of the mast as well as significantly increasing reflex and overall performance.
Every NeilPryde sail will perform to its highest potential when used with the specified NeilPryde mast because our sails are designed around our mast curves.
The NeilPryde RDM masts are compatible in curve with NeilPryde SDM Masts. Choose a RDM mast for a softer, more forgiving feel and durability and a SDM mast for faster response, stability and more direct feel.
We recommend the use of SDM Masts on cambered sails
