Depending on the size of the mast, a rake is applied to boost your performance
4 mast sizes:
The Performer mast benefits from a variable rope. This last one is widened at the level of plate allowing to increase the rigidity and thus the support at takeoff. The submerged part of the mast has a lower chord which reduces drag and increases maneuverability.
The Performer masts are between 14 mm and 15 mm thick. This thin thickness increases your glide tenfold. For comparison, an aluminum mast with equivalent rigidity is about 19 mm for twice the weight.
This indeed a lively, slippery and playful foil.
All the know-how of AFS: quality & performance. The Performer masts, made of ultra or high modulus pre-preg carbon in France, have been designed to transcend your foiling experience with a significant improvement in your glide and performance depending on your practice. The use of high modulus carbon allows to gain in rigidity (bending and torsion) while decreasing the thickness of the mast and thus the drag to optimize the glide.

The conical carbon monolithic fitting at the lower end of the mast allows a tight assembly with the fuselage without play. A set of three screws lock the whole thing together for maximum rigidity.
The full carbon construction brings stiffness and lightness to the foil. In the same way, you will not be bothered with marine aggressions such as corrosion that could weaken it.
