Selden National 12 Carbon Boom (BC086-1156)



Selden Carbon Eliptical, Tapered Boom

Seldén supply carbon booms that harmonise with its carbon mast range. Carbon booms offer weight savings of up to 35% compared to aluminium.

A lighter boom makes gybing less dramatic, as the boom has less momentum. This has a positive effect on the whole boat, especially with regard to the service life of the mainsheet attachment.

A lighter boom also reduces the tendency of the boat to roll when sailing downwind and it improves the effect of the Rodkickers’ gas spring. The section modulus of a carbon boom is twice as high as that of an aluminium boom with the same weight per metre. A stiff boom makes for improved trim and thus higher boat speed.
