2015 NORTH GOLD SDM 75% MAST (490 only) high-tech carbon content, high-tech prepreg production and excellent dynamics This makes the GOLD series the indisputable performance, weight leader.
Except for the slightly reduced carbon content all models are technically identical to the Platinum. Therefore the GOLD RDM version can be referred as the lower-priced version of the thin, high performance Platinum RDM. The Natural White Poly.Shield full coating prevents any scratching or abrasion. The white surface protects the material especially against strong sunlight as it effectively prevents the heating up into the critical area and thermal overload.

Overall, a top-quality, versatile mast made even more durable and it now comes with an unlimited 2-year warranty!

NATURAL WHITE POLY.SHIELD SURFACE PROTECTION
Now often imitated but still unrivaled:
A groundbreaking development in the NorthSails mast construction is the Poly.Shield coating. This is a highly abrasion-resistant material that is also used for ski and snowboard bases and is unique in its capabilities. Carbon fiber is very stiff, but not particularly resistant to abrasion. Especially in the area of the boom and camber, but also at the mast leading edge, the carbon fibers are now effectively protected by the Poly.Shield against abrasion.
As the only brand we use un-dyed polyamide, in its natural white color, which improves the abrasion resistance compared to dyed polyamides by 20%. The Poly.Shield covers the entire surface of all Platinum and Gold masts, as well as the base of the Silver series! This means no more wear, scratches or damage to the carbon fibers.
