Masts made of carbon fiber pre-preg technology for maximum value, translating into a high performance mast that fits like a glove to SSS sails, and is compatible with most market sails.

What is pre-peg? The fibers are used for optimum preimpregnated fiber-resin ratio, before being used to form the mast which is then cured.

All our masts are RDM, this is, reduced diameter, improved handling and maneuverability in water.

The mast is essential, and the best sail, poorly rigged, it´s a bad sail. Masts SSS Black Series are constructed with the maximum carbon percent, ensuring a lower relative weight and high reactivity and response, which results in more control, aid plan, acceleration and maneuverability.
Made with the so-called “Constant Curve”, believe that we must be clear and transparent in this regard, where there is much confusion and darkness in many cases. Thus, must clarify certain concepts.

While taking as standard nomenclature name “100% Carbon”, the exact percentage of the masts is a 97% carbon.

The curve reaches the mast under pressure is called curve “Constant Curve”, that fits most market sails, and especially our SSS.

Exactly and speaking of numbers, the average curve is in our masts 62,70 / 75,97. this is, 63/76. This number can vary depending on the mast unit and considered this far, can oscillate slightly less than 1 average point.

As a rule, are between 62-63% and 75-77%

 

 

 

 
In SSS not adorn or decorate masts. Production is limited to get a mast with maximum durability and performance. Thus, our masts are manufactured exclusively in carbon, and do not use mixed compounds. Not add color and decoration,elements that do not contribute to improve performance and add weight to the total. In his stead, masts are reinforced at these points with extra carbon layers, simply the most effective material to achieve the best performance on a mast.

 

An example of our philosophy is the kevlar or carbon-kevlar. This material has excellent properties, but protrudes and is used mainly for its impact resistance, besides having an attractive aesthetic. Usually placed at the height of the boom, to prevent wear of the friction with the head. However, this is the most protected area of ​​the mast over shocks, the same boom as it protects. Contrast, wear occurs equally, or Kevlar aramid being an especially vulnerable to humidity which is exposed after the continuous friction and wear. And Carbon does not exceed any of the specific properties must have a mast. Following our philosophy of aesthetics vs. performance, carbon used in this area.

 

If you care about protecting your mast of boom or cams, just use a little of mylar to protect the wear zone. Failing, everyday materials serve the same function in a very efficient and simple way.

True to our philosophy, in SSS have tested thoroughly and for a long time the quality and durability of the material to be able to say that we offer a high quality mast and insured benefits.

With balanced weights, SSS masts have greater thickness in specific areas is required or advisable, exposed to constant friction and pressure against other materials, as is the neck joint area to plug or extension, or the joint between the two parts of the mast. Always, carbon.

The only weak point in the SSS masts is the sticking vinyl where are printing the specifications. Hopefully this will not worry…
