If you need a super strong boom, but don?t want the expense of a carbon boom,
this Aeron V-Grip is an excellent option.
Exceptional stiffness and comfort, in an affordable aluminium option.
It does what it says on the tin!
The Aeron V Grip was a revolution in aluminium windsurfing booms?superior
strength comparable to carbon, for the price of an aluminium!
The Aeron V Grip range brings the very best technology in boom manufacture to
the everyday windsurfer. Of all non-carbon booms, it has proved to be the
strongest aluminium boom on the market, and as a result is the boom relied upon
by heavier riders or for those who love to ride fully powered up. The V Grip
also has a unique ergonomic boom arm shape due to it?s design.
TRY THIS FIST CLENCH!
Start by making a fist, or bending your fingers to replicate gripping a boom.
You?ll notice that inside your knuckles, or through to the palm of your clenched
fist, the shape is closer to a ?V? than a semi-circle. Aeron?s development team
discovered this shape on the inside of the boom not only feels more comfortable,
it also reduced ?over-gripping? of the boom that can lead to forearm cramps
during long sessions.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE V GRIP BOOMS
When it comes to construction, the extruded alloy ?V? shape on the inside of the
boom arms bring phenomenal stiffness, narrowing the previously large gap in
rigidity between alloy and carbon booms. The only downside is the boom is a
fraction heavier than a standard oval shaped aluminium boom?which is not really
noticeable when you?re using the boom out on the water. This is what makes the
Aeron V Grips the stiffest non carbon booms on the market.
