Hardware

 

 

AXXON has chosen to use all carbon hardware whenever possible in order to reduce weight aloft (mast head, head stay attachment, sheave boxes, carbon spreaders, goose neck and vang bracket, etc.)
Even if aluminium spreaders are used on some small masts these spreaders are designed with a minimum wall thickness and tapered by welding to reduce the weight.
All these weight reductions help to improve the stability and the pitching moment of the boat.
AXXON also offers a range of integrated aluminium and carbon tracks laminated within the mast tube to eliminate the need for backing plates and screws fasteners required by  standard tracks which again results in a weight saving.
