Laser Carbon Upper Mast Top Section
The new Laser top section carbon composite upper mast. Built to the exact same design in mind as the previous top section it boasts durability and ease of use.
The new carbon mast top section has been designed to be the exact same weight with the same bend characteristics as the existing aluminum upper sections. The new top section will not provide a performance advantage but instead will eliminate the permanent bending problems associated with the aluminum spars.
Sailing Chandlery are proud to be an authorised Laser Performance dealer.
In the International Laser Class Association (ILCA)’s announcement, President, Tracy Usher, said, "I've sailed with a prototype Laser carbon upper mast while training in a wide variety of conditions - I couldn't tell any difference between having this spar on the boat or using an aluminum one. I sail the same way and the boat seems to behave the same way. Everything felt the same. This is going to make Laser sailing easier. Sailors won't need to carefully align their mast rivet when rigging or worry about straightening their masts after a day of heavy air sailing. It's going to be a big improvement for everyone!”
The Laser mast comes in two parts, the top upper mast section is available in aluminium and also carbon.
The bottom section of the mast can be changed to adjust for the 4.7, Radial and Standard rigs.
