Description

The new curve performance, skinny grip and ultimate boom to mast connection – balanced.

Streamlined’s top rider Josh Angulo and chief designer Dave Dominy have been working together on slalom booms for the last five years as Josh has been doing the PWA slalom tours.  Together they have designed, built and tested many new ideas, materials, and concepts.

And there is a NEW Freeride Boom just added to the range (180-230). It is wide, super light, super stiff and easy to adjust.

SUBTLE NEW CURVE

This CURVE is another design first by Streamlined.  It is often called the “new school” curve.  The idea is that your forward hand is on a straighter part of the boom as opposed to trying to hang onto a reverse curve, which is a big disadvantage.  The reverse curve area on most booms makes you inclined to sail underhanded.  Your front hand grip is so critical to control and just plane hanging on. This advantage is excellent for all styles of sailing, it helps everyone do everything.  This curve gives less fatigue and even eases carpal tunnel syndrome.

MOST SOLID MAST CONNECTION – PERIOD.

One of the best things about Streamlined booms is our own unique Dyneema alloy head design.  The boom to mast connection is absolute, it makes your entire rig feel like an extension of your arms.   It is amazing how good it feels.  This connection does not break down in time. This strong aluminum head is even lighter than many plastic heads.  The Dyneema alloy head is quick and easy to set up, adjust, and get tight .

GRIP

What is the diameter where you put your hands?  It is so obvious but this is such a point of rampant false advertising.  The truth is that Streamlined booms tubes are 27 millimeters in diameter at the actual area where you hang on.  But in reality, you will likely never see that diameter because boom grip is on every boom.   Often grip material is 1.5 millimetres to 2 millimeters thick.  1.5 mm would add 3 mm to the OD [outside diameter].  2 mm would add 4 mm to the OD.  If you see a boom advertised as having a 26.5 mm grip, in reality with grip it could be 30.5 mm.    what we really must be aware of is the diameter with grip we make our booms. It’s not only about being small, its about being good.

LIGHT TAIL

STREAMLINED means simplicity, literally.  Our boom tail is virtually weightless and absolutely simple.  Precision built prepreg Carbon fiber and Dyneema out-haul line.  No more, no less.  The tail design is perfectly designed for a 4 to 1 purchase by simplicity.  You can out-haul your sail so it butts up to the tail piece, so it is tight with no slop and no gap.
