Making the most sustainable Windsurfing rig products on the market

Sustainability is the most important and pressing challenge of todays mankind to secure a livable mother earth for future generations to come!

Over the last 50 years Windsurfing has developed into a super high tech sport. But let's face it despite what others might tell you with the exception of aluminium booms and extensions Windsurfing rig products are a "mixture of petrol-based plastics". And most of the time up to 100% of these plastics are non-recycled (means "freshly produced") plastics. 
At least as of today there are no eco-friendly substitutes existing for the structural components offering the minimum requirements necessary to design modern Windsurfing products. Or why do you think no one wants to sail with wooden booms, aluminium masts or stretchy sails made of woven fabrics anymore?
There is only one sustainable way out of this dilemma:

MAKING LONGER LASTING PRODUCTS (LONGEVITY = SUSTAINABILITY)
A high performance product that lasts longer and best case can even be put into additional use on the second hand market is the best and only way to conserve the resources of our earth.
Of course light components have a massive impact on the performance and handling of your rig. That's why light weight is always on our briefing list when designing and engineering new products. And DUOTONE products are among or in many cases are the lightest on the market.
But durability and longevity were and will ALWAYS be on top of our priority list. Our industry leading warranty extensions bear witness to this philosophy:
- 2 year unconditional warranty on almost every hardware product (masts, booms and extensions+bases).
- 5 year warranty on 80% of our sails.
On sails we cannot emphasize enough that especially reducing the thickness of the monofilm and the XPly laminate has a radical influence on the longevity/sustainability. Reducing the film thickness by 50% reduces the UV-stability by 70%. Just to shortterm impress magazine testers or customers some brands use up to 70% thinner laminates/films than we do. This is not our understanding of sustainability.

DOING MORE
However, since we are fully aware of the importance of sustainability, we cannot simply stop here.
>> Only we have stopped using any plastic for packaging our sails. This saves approx. 5 sqm of plastic film and foam per sail.
>> Only our aluminium products (booms and extensions+bases) are manufactured in a CO2 neutral production facility.
>> Only our aluminium products (booms and extensions+bases) are produced in Germany using 100% European raw materials in order to keep shipping distances (to our manufacture and then to our central warehouse) at a minimum.
>> Only our sail bags are made out of 100% recycled plastic.
>> Only we compensate all carbon emissions caused by our sails during manufacture and transport by supporting a hydropower carbon offset project in Sri Lanka, the country where our sails are produced.

DETAILS

iBase 2.0 series

Un profil plat, une longévité extrême
L’iBASE 2.0 a été conçue exprès avec un écrou central pour permettre un montage et un démontage sans outil. Bien que les bases soient habituellement au profil haut, nos techniciens ont trouvé une solution pour faire de l’iBASE 2.0 l’embase la plus plate ans son genre. Rien n’empêchait de réduire au maximum le risque de blessures aux pieds et aux orteils. Contrairement aux pieds de mâts conventionnels, qui sont fabriqués en plastique Zytel, l’iBASE 2.0 est la seule base composée de POM, un matériau bien plus rigide qui augmente sa durabilité.
Une pour tous : une seule base suffit pour toutes les plages d'utilisation
Nous sommes convaincus à 100 % que chacun n’a réellement besoin que d'une seule base, indépendamment des conditions et des disciplines. La grande flexibilité et le montage/démontage facile rendent l’utilisation de plusieurs bases et de différents système tout simplement inutile. C’est pourquoi notre offre se limite à l’iBASE 2.0. Toutes les fonctions supplémentaires citées ne l’alourdissent aucunement, ce qui n’est pas le cas pour les autres bases disponibles sur le marché !
Fonction de déblocage
Nous avons toujours trouvé frustrant de devoir, une fois la séance terminée, dévisser avec nos mains fatiguées la plaquette de la planche pour que celle-ci puisse rentrer dans sa housse. C’est pourquoi l’iBASE 2.0 possède une option de déblocage pratique, qui permet de retirer le tendon simplement en tirant sur l’axe U-pin en acier inoxydable résistante au sable. Vous pouvez également changer le tendon à votre convenance sans aucun outil et en quelques secondes.
Autre avantage de cette fonction : en cas de besoin, il suffit d’utiliser un tendon de remplacement pour être de nouveau opérationnel, sans devoir s’embêter à réparer l’ensemble base/tendon.
Encore plus de sécurité
A. Pour tous les maniaques de la sécurité, il est également possible de visser le bouton de déblocage (OPTION PERMA LOCK), ce qui verrouille la fonction de déblocage.
B. Si la iBASE 2.0 venait à se « gripper » après être restée longtemps inutilisée, deux trous sont disponibles qui permettent de faire levier avec un tournevis et de la libérer facilement.

We have always been annoyed having to unscrew the base from the board after the surf session with tired hands, just so the board fits into the board bag. And: Why do you have to unscrew the joint from the base when changing or replacing the joint? Both annoyances are a thing of the past with the iBASE 2.0. The iBASE features a convenient sand-resistant release option, which allows you to remove the connection joint by simply pulling the stainless steel U-wire. Or for the first time ever have the free choice of different kind of joints.

Joint for iBase (incl. Duotone-pin long)Joint for iBase (incl. Duotone-pin long)

This version features the legendary, slightly softer original PowerJoint durex. Together with the large cross-section this guarantees maximum longevity. Since the built-in DUOTONE pin has been established as the standard on the market for decades, the joint can directly be used with approx. 90% of all mast extensions on the market. (Note: Not compatible with EPX.XT RDM)

iTENDON (incl. Duotone-pin short)
iTENDON (incl. Duotone-pin short)iTENDON (incl. Duotone-pin short)

The most innovative tendon when it comes to performance and safety.
Instead of the usual polyurethane material we use a BASF high-tech material for the connecting string, which is about 50% tougher and more durable. Another advantage of this exclusive tendon material is that it avoids the usual offset between rig and board slowing you down. That‘s why the iTENDON is the first choice of many PWA competitors as it offers a more direct power transmission between rig and board than any other tendon out there.
Maximum security is granted through the new DYNEEMA.SAFETY.SYSTEM – a highest quality Dyneema kite line that is integrated into the BASF tendon guarantees absolute safety. Extremely lightweight, extremely tear-resistant and absolutely stretch-free.
For maximum durability the top and bottom parts are milled out of single V2A stainless steel blocks.

iTendon Shox
iTendon ShoxiTendon Shox

Identical to iTENDON, the SHOX-version comes equipped with the revolutionary Shox-attachment instead of the Duotone pin. Thus, the iTENDON.SHOX is compatible with all extensions of the SHOX SERIES and makes the iBASE the ideal fitting base.

2.PHASE.WASHER.PLATE

The exclusive washer plate is produced in a 2-phase over-moulding process (like an electric toothbrush).
- The white upper side consists of a low friction PVC material effectively reducing the forve necessary to tighten the iBASE 2.0 onto the board
- The bottom side is over-moulded using a special rubber-mixture to avoid any sliding on the board

So that the iBASE 2.0 can be installed or removed without the need for tools, it has been designed to include a central screw. Although these designs are normally built relatively high, our engineers have found a solution for making the iBASE 2.0 the lowest base of its kind.

Should the iBASE 2.0 ever become stuck to the board after long storage times, now two holes allow using a screwdriver as a lever to release the base.
