blacklite mast


Tax included

The Optimist Blackgold LITE mast is ideal for lighter sailors. Extensive testing with coaches and sailors around the world has shown that the best solution for sailors under 40 kg is a flexible Optimist mast with a 40 mm boom. The LITE mast is 20% more flexible (compared to the regular Blackgold POWER mast), which allows the sailor to depower the rig in strong winds, while the 40 mm boom helps the sail maintain proper shape.

The BLACKGOLD™ Optimist rig is the most advanced Optimist rig in the world. For many years it has been chosen as the official rig for the I.O.D.A. World, European, Asian and Oceanic Championships. Several exceptional results have been achieved in recent years.
