The Blackgold collection contains two types of spars.
The regular BLACKGOLD mast which is suitable for sailors above 40 kg
and the 25% lighter BLACKLITE mast which is the best proven solution
for sailors under 40 kg and allows sailors to depower the rig in heavy winds.
Both are 45 microns black hard anodized 7075 masts and come with high
grade Nylon fittings, hard anodized cleats and complete rigging pack.
