The North Windsurfing Mast Extension Shox XTR new windsurfing extension is for wave, freestyle and freeride use.
These advantages of the new SHOX.XTR count for any of range of use and all disciplines:
Be it speed, racing or freeride, with the SHOX.XTR you can finally appoint on a dead downwind course without fearing any control problems. Immediately makes every rider 1-2 knots faster
In the waves, firstly the SHOX.XTR dampens landings and delivers a new level of board control when going down the line
Supports the pop in freestyling by using the rebound in the shock and additionally the damping attenuates impact on landing
The travel can be varied between 60 and 80mm, with longer travel for tougher conditions and higher waves
Of course we have integrated the POWER.XTR ratchet mechanism for SDM as well as RDM masts. And all of this is achieved with only 100g of additional weight compared to a standard Power.XT extension.
SHOX.XTR – get ready for an unprecedented riding sensation.
Do your running shoes still have super stiff leather soles? Do you still race downhill on a hard-tailed mountain bike? And why must you focus like Michael Schumacher in a Fiat 500 at150 km/h while a Mercedes driver shoots by on the phone at 220 km/h?
The magic word is: chassis. A perfectly tuned chassis avoids bounce and oscillation. Only this additional control enables higher speeds. Until today only windsurfers have largely believed that only non-compromising rigidity leads to more performance. The full performance potential of our windsurfing gear stays unexploited since control problems reduce speed potential. Last year we took our first steps toward more control with the launch of our new iFRONT head with controlled suspension. With the SHOX.XTR we now present a chassis that has the potential to change the sport and be as sustainable as the invention mountain bike suspension…
SHOX.XTR combines our pioneering POWER.XTR ratchet mechanism with an integrated high-end shock absorber.
Since windsurfing equipment is clearly exposed to further wind and weather stresses, high tech Polymers from BASF take over the damping function. During a special procedure these Polymers are resinated with precisely defined air embeddings. Through this process we reach a similar fast response-behavior like an air-suspended high- end mountain bike suspension. Just as a bike suspension fork avoids riders being thrown off over bumps, steep chop is now simply being “absorbed” by the SHOX.XTR, instead of inducing a catapult.

NORTH SAILS INTEGRATED.RIG.TECHNOLOGY – The perfect rig
For over a decade North Sails has been one of the few brands who develop all windsurfing rig components for use exclusively by North Sails. This guarantees that all North Sails components are state of the art and work better when used in conjunction with a North Sail to generate the absolute maximum performance.
NORTH SAILS BEST.FIT.SYSTEM – Perfectly matching components
One thing is sure all North Sails components fit almost all sails of different brands and improve their performance. In addition there are ideal combinations that can get the maximum out of every rig. Components within the Red, Silver, Gold and Platinum series make great combinations and were designed to perfectly match each other. In terms of performance and price the following rule of thumb applies: the more money you spend, the lighter, more dynamic and powerful your rig will be. This means that you determine how much performance you need or how much you are willing to invest in your performance.
