Seldén have worked with some of the top 470 sailors to develop the most complete range of spars for the class which now includes ZETA, our newest section.
All our tapers are CNC plasma cut and auto welded making them the most consistent masts available. This is vital for effective two boat tuning and to ensure race and spare masts will have identical bend.
We heat treat all are spars in our own oven to deliver a higher hardness specification. This means our masts are strong and can bend further without breaking or taking a permanent set.
Zeta is our latest section developed specially for Womens 470. It is about 10% softer than Cumulus making it ideal for lighter crews. Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark won the World Championship using a Zeta mast.
Cumulus is our most popular 470 section for Men. It
provides an excellent balance of stiffness, weight and gust
response. Luke Patience and Stu Bithell currently use a
standard Cumulus mast.
Alto was developed for the light wind conditions of Bejing. Being 5% stiffer than Cumulus it is used by heavier teams looking for extra power in marginal conditions.
