- Designed, developed and assembled in Germany
No doubt, security and handling are also first priority also for the brand new UNI.XT. Highest quality materials and the anodized surface leave no doubt about the strength and durability of the extension. This includes the new cup. As the only brand we use extremely tough POM material which is significantly stiffer than previously used plastics. The length adjustment mechanism is easy to operate even in sandy conditions and with cold fingers and is locked absolutely reliable. This means: zero risk of fracture, unbeatable rigidity and length adjustment as quickly as possible.
- Compatible with all sail brands
Is there anything more annoying than unpack the sail and then determine the sail roller block does not fit together with the extension? When threading the rope takes hours? The UNI.XT solves this once for all through a technically ambitious and entirely new arrangement of rollers. The Rollers sit very well protected in the newly developed cup so that they are protected from damage while preventing injuries. This arrangement ensures an absolutely frictionless alignment of the downhaul rope in combination with 0 ° sail roller blocks (eg, North Sails, NeilPryde, Gaastra, ...) as well as with 90 ° rotated roller units (eg, Gun Sails, Naish, Severne). This saves power by reducing the friction and protects the rope. At the same time this arr angement for the first time allows the first loop-loop-go function with absolutely all sail brands! Means no annoying and time-consuming threading through the rollers - simply loop the rope-loop over the two outer tack rollers and you can immediately start dowhnhauling.
- Power-saving, less dangerous trimming
In terms of rigging comfort the new UNI.XT offers much more than existing standard extensions. In order to ensure the most effective tensioning of the downhaul we have designed the cup under ergonomic points of view incorporating the DOUBLE.FOOT.TRIM. Through the intelligent positioning of the cleat, it is now possible to prop with both feet against the cup, and thus cope far greater forces with lower back strain. Now you can use the same technique for the downhauling as in rowing, where you naturally also use both feet to mobilize maximum power through pushing with the feet rather than pulling through your back. Another plus is the f act that the dangerous slippage of the foot from the cup is effectively prevented.
For advanced suspension technology Certainly the killer feature of the sophisticated UNI.XT is the possibility to expand it with the revolutionary and absolutely unique NorthSails SHOX suspension system. SHOX, the first integrated shock absorber, which adds a chassis to the board similar to a full-suspension on a mountain bike. Especially in choppy conditions it smooth’s out the board and the rig, absorbing chop and the impact after landing. Tests have proven that the rig doesn‘t bump, the rider can convert the wind power much more effective into acceleration making you a proven 2-3 knots faster, and also preserves the equipment and your joints. Whether speed, racing or freeride, the new UNI.XT in combination with the SHOX.UPGRADE.KIT definitely guarantees more control, more speed and more comfort. The upgrade is easily done in a few simple steps. The new, very stiff cup ensures that the suspension tube runs with absolutely no friction, the damping elements respond more sensitively and thereby creates a more enjoyable ride. No wonder that almost all of our top athletes swear by the SHOX option rather than going without! Of course the SHOX.UPGRADE.KIT is available for both UNI.XT SDM and RDM in all lengths!
