We have been able to develop an even more flexible sprit by combining a 28mm tube with a very thin wall thickness. The charasterics of the used high yield alloy, the extrusion manufacturing process and the used thicknesses makes the sprit +- 20% more flexible compared to the well known MK3 Flex sprit. This sprit weighs less than 500 gram and is +- 30% lighter compared to the MK3 Flex sprit. Your Optimist rig can be further optimized for those who prefer a more dynamic leech which opens more easily. This can be usefull when sailing in strong winds or on high waves.
