Seldén’s new Cumulus section, which was developed as a lightweight (0.9kg/m) section specifically for non-trapeze boats, is now available. This section combines light weight with a ‘dynamic’ gust response for performance through the range of conditions.
Choose a Seldén mast and you will find many performance enhancing features unique to our products, for example: l The Seldén tapering system ensures that our tapers are minimum size and weight. This giveslow windage, centre of gravity and topmast weight. This maximises your speed by enabling the topmast to react quickly to gusts and waves giving better acceleration, a smoother ride upwind and, ultimately, more races won!
Automated welding keeps excess heat out of the taper for guaranteed consistency and performance. The weld produced is so perfect that there is no need to mechanically grind the weld (which can induce inconsistencies). This means that once we have finalised a winning design, you can be sure that your spar will perform identically to the champions.
All masts are heat treated in our purpose-designed oven. This artificial hardening ensures that you get maximum performance from the high performance aluminium alloy. Our spars pass through a purpose-developed bead-peening machine. This gives the mast a perfect satin finish that dramatically improves fatigue properties, giving you a mast that will perform reliably for many years.
