North iBase & Parts

A two part product. Each of these parts (base and connector) can be bought separately as a "part" should you need to replace them, or as a complete product. The "iTendon" and "Joint" will fit most extensions. The "iBase" fits onto the board (and can stay there) and the connector connects the board to the sail. There are three types of connectors available, as explained below.
Mast base system.
The lowest mast base system with central screw. A highly functional base with an extremely low profile, it is lightweight but virtually indestructible and provides numerous handling and tuning options.

Connectors
Note: The iBase system can be purchased complete or as separate parts (so that you can replace used parts at a later stage). There are three connectors available depending on your requirements - for details on the different connectors please click the "Parts" tab. The three variations of the iBase system are shown in the image below.

1. One for all - just one base for all conditions
North are 100% convinced that everyone in all conditions and for all disciplines needs only one base. The flexibility and ease of de/ attaching makes the need for different bases and systems simply obsolete. That is why from now North offer the iBASE as a separate part.

2. Low profile, extreme durability
To guarantee that the new iBASE can be attached and detached without any tools in seconds, it was deliberately designed with a central screw. Although these solutions usually require a relatively high profile, North engineers have found a solution, so it became the lowest base of its kind. Since there is nothing in the way, the risk of injury to feet and toes is as small as possible. In contrast to conventional mast feet, which are made of Zytel plastic, the new iBASE is the only one produced using the much stiffer material called POM, which improves the durability.

3. Release option
North have always been annoyed having to unscrew the base from the board after the surf session with tired hands, just so the board fits into the board bag. And: Why do you have to unscrew the joint from the base when changing the joint? Both annoyances are a thing of the past with the new iBASE. It features a convenient sand-resistant release option, which allows to remove the connection joint by simply pulling the stainless steel U-wire.

4. Free choice of the connection joint
From now on you can choose from three new, super highquality connection joints that are a slightly softer or stiffer just as you prefer. To be absolutely clear, this is a two part product. The "iBase" plate fits onto the board (and can stay there) and the connector connects the board to the sail. There are three types of connectors available, as explained below. Each of these parts (plate and connector) can be bought separately as a "part" should you need to replace them, or as a complete product. The "iTendon" and "Joint" will fit most extensions.

Connectors

iTendon
This innovative Heavy Duty Tendon is ranked highly in terms of reliability, performance and secureness. Instead of the usual polyurethane material, for the first time the tendon is constructed from a BASF High-tech material which is about 50% tougher and more durable. The highest level of security is enabled with the new DYNEEMA.SAFETY.SYSTEM - strands of the highest quality Dyneema kite safety cord which are constructed from BASF are integrated into the tendon, for the first time this provides absolute security. Extremely light and extremely tear-resistant. Works with most extensions
Weight: 150grams

iTendon for Shox Extension
Identical to iTENDON, the SHOX-version comes equipped with the revolutionary Shox attachment instead of the North pin. Thus, the iTENDON.SHOX is compatible with all extensions of the SHOX SERIES and makes the iBASE the ideal fitting base. All these unique features do not lead to any additional increase in weight, something other bases in the market cannot claim to achieve!
Weight: 100grams


Joint
This rather classic version uses the legendary, slightly softer PowerJoint original. For safety it comes with an outside safety rope. Since the built-pin North is established as the standard on the market since decades, the joint can directly be used with approx. 90% of all mast extensions on the market.
