KATEGORI RACE -PERFORMANCE
Starboard ligger i framkant med utvecklingen av foil. Genom modultänk man man modifiera eller uppgradera sin foil enkelt. Allt för att passa för hårdvindsegenskaper, egenskaper för tyngre seglare, högre vågor mm.
Mast: Carbon 95cm
Fuselage: Aluminium 115cm PLUS
Front Wing: Carbon 800cm2
Tail Wing: Carbon 255cm2
Starboards supersmarta modultänk som gör att man kan modifiera eller uppgradera sin foil enkelt, exempelvis byta ut masten mot en kolfibermast senare om man vill maximer prestanda och minimera vikt. Varje foil består av mast, fuselag, frontwing, tailwing. Du kan variera alla dessa delar för att få antingen lättvindsegenskaper, hårdvindsegenskaper, egenskaper för tyngre seglare, högre vågor mm. Passar i alla deep tuttlebox brädor. OBS en foil ger mer G-krafter än en vanlig fena. Helst skall man köra brädor med förstärkta boxar.
Forget weight, forget flex: foil masts have to be stiff and torsionally rigid to achieve controlled flight. The stiffer, the more stable. And the more stable, the more control and more performance the foil delivers. Starboard Carbon masts are built in 100% pre-preg carbon, with forty layers of wrapped high-modulus uni-axial, bi-axial and tri-axial Toray carbon hydraulically pressed, heated and fused into one monolithic mast of incredible stiffness. Starboard Aluminum masts use a proprietary and patent-pending triple beam cross-section with a unique profile that pushes more material to the perimeter than any known other masts, providing unprecedented stiffness and performance.
The shape of our mast has also been optimized for flexural and torsional stiffness. Computer-simulated analysis shows the Starboard mast, by virtue of its shape alone, is already up to 52% stiffer than a traditional mast.
We found G10 wings and glass fibre wings to flex too much, no matter what we tried. Flex reduces control and stability. Since thicker wings would reduce performance, we chose to make all Starboard Wings in 100% pre-preg Toray carbon. Like for the mast, stiffer wings equal controlled and stable flight.
Aluminium. Why aluminium? A-B testing repeatedly found aluminium fuselages to outperform carbon fuselages in spite of their weight and the extra care needed to avoid corrosion. The longer the fuselage, the more apparent it became: unlike masts or wings that are thin, because of the solid, circular cross-section of a fuselage, not only is an aluminium fuselage stiffer, it is also tougher, stronger and torsionally more rigid. Since added weight is not a disadvantage in foils, possibly even an advantage, we chose 6061 aluminium for the fuselage construction.
The key to a good saddle design is width and square, mechanically locking shapes. With a flat and large mating surface that makes the most of the fuselage's width, Starboard's wings bolt-on with ease and allow wings of all shapes and sizes to be fitted. Want to attach your own wings? We supply G10 shimming blocks that allow you to bolt on any wings to the Starboard Modular Foil Platform.
A super stiff mast, a hyper-rigid fuselage and full carbon wings would all go to waste if the fuselage fitting wasn't up to par. So we designed our own patent-pending fuselage fitting that not only allows for convenient disassembly, it also allows four lateral bolts to crank up the fitting pressure between the mast and the fuselage to the max, enhancing torsional rigidity and creating a single, fused high performance unit. Three Torx bolts on the bottom carry the vertical loads. When the fuselage fitting could be the weakest link in a foil construction, our patent-pending system turns the design equation upside down, making the connection a stronger and stiffer link than had we made a single-piece mast fuselage combination.
