The new 2016 North Power XT shox RDM 36 cm new windsurfing extension is for wave, freestyle and freeride use.
The biggest innovation in Windsurfing history!
Hard to see, but true: The POWER.XT 2.0 has been completely redesigned. besides the basic idea it has almost nothing in common with its predecessor. From the brand new, extremely solid ratchet mechanism, the simplified release function and the high-strength Lyros® Dyneema rope up to the possibility to upgrade the POWER.XT 2.0 with a damper function - the POWER.XT 2.0 can do so much more and everything better.
Since its introduction 10 years ago the POWER.XT is the unmatched standard, when it comes to extensions with trim aids. Anyone who has used it once never wants to be without it. Thanks to the integrated lever it handles all downhaul forces and allows precise trim adjustments and fine tuning even on the water. Even kids can use it to cope the extreme downhaul tension of modern slalom sails. Each profile is adjusted with millimeter precision in seconds. The 15 cm long lever and the power ratio of 1:60 enable absolutely power-saving trimming.
Advantages when setting up the sail:
→ Faster rigging: attach rope-loop – pull on standard-cleat – ratchet, ready!
→ Significantly less power required (power ratio approx. 1/60)
→ No need for trimming tools (e.g. “easy-rig“ or harness hook)
Advantages on the water:
→ Adjustments can be made even on the water, increasing as well as releasing (e.g. when the wind speed changes)
→ Increased safety
→ Sail performance and wind range are exploited to the full
New: benefits during de-rigging:
Thanks to RAPID.RELEASE the sail-tension can be instantly released. Due to the modified position of the standard cleat, just place one foot on the extension and pull the rope with a short jerk out of the standard cleat - done
Now compatible with all sail brands
The brand-new POWER.XT features a stainless-steel open pulley enabling loop-loop-go rigging - the fastest and most comfortable way to rig your sail!
The Power.XT 2.0 is now the first choice even for sails with twisted tack-rollers (e.g. Loft, Naish, Severne). Yet their rope distribution has been taken into account during construction.
On these sails though the rope needs to be threaded.

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.
