MAST SDM C100
The Cesare Cantagalli I-99 Masts Collection
The evolution of Brand expanding from boards collection to Sails and related rig components such as Masts and Booms, makes me feel very confident as my technical back-ground experience comes from several years of sails and mast designing together with boards developments.
When it came to choose the Mast manufacture I had no doubts about my choice.
For over 6 years I worked in Reglass and contributed to their first ever 100% Prepreg-carbon Technology developments and expansion to the market.
It is a personal honor to proudly mark my masts with a “Made in Italy” label, as well as being given the privilege to closely develop and produce my personal Branded mast at Reglass which I consider family and a true excellence of quality and technology to stand above any level available today in our industry.
Constant curve, usable on almost all modern sails, which use, in most cases, this type of curve.
However, remember that the curve is not the only one of the indicative parameters and, in many cases, not even the most important, able to make the sail work at its best.
I worked together with the Reglass team to create different carbon arrangements, combined with the types of resins used on each specific application and on the mast profile to obtain more Reflex.
The Reflex translates into a quicker return response to mast flex, when flexed by the sail while sailing. In fact, the duty of a mast is not only the primary one of giving the design profile to the sail, but of keeping it under the gusts, that is, of returning the sail, when stressed by the wind, to its original shape as quickly as possible and generate control and maximum sail profile efficiency and stability.
A quick Reflex will be essential to give maximum stability to the profile for greater comfort and maximum efficiency of the sail surface as well as guaranteeing the best reaction timing in wave sailing.
It is a cooking process in an Autoclave, which lasts over 8 hours, during which the variables that influence the product are infinite and vary between the chemistry of the applied resins combined with the type of carbon thread impregnated with it. What happens over this long period of time is what makes masts made of the same material completely different and a Made-in-Reglass mast, superior to others.
The construction of a carbon mast itself is very long and complex and the difference between the models of different sail lines is not only due to the type of fiber, which remains the starting point, but to the way in which it is prepared , to the process by which the prepreg high modulus carbon produced in Reglass is distributed on the mandrel (mold) and treated in the following phases.
SDM - GRAND TOUR - 80/100
2 sizes with different carbon variants and designed for the latest generation FreeRide and FreeRace sails with or without camber such as Grand Tour 6 and Grand Tour 7.
Its genesis depended on the need to conceive a mast, by its very nature and very performing, able to withstand high bending and torsion loads very generated by the upper sail surfaces, as well as being light and adapting to the profile of the sail.
460 - 490
Material: T800 Toray High Module, pre-preg made in Reglass, Shark skin structural reinforces in the boom area.
Connector: glued inn for a optimized structural smooth curve
