Why X-Booms

Our goal is simple: to produce the best carbon booms on the market.

  • Our carbon booms are 100% handcrafted. Made from the best quality carbon fibre to produce a top quality product.
  • We have developed our own elliptic tubing to manufacture our carbon booms. This delivers booms with maximum rigidity and minimal weight.
  • We use natural cork for the grip, which is produced in Portugal.
  • The natural cork provides a superior feel while holding the boom, endurance and warmth during cold weather sailing.
  • We only use the best quality components for our booms: Ronstan® rollers, Clamcleat® cleats and fitted with the boom head of your choice.
Manufacturing of our custom carbon tubes

Construction and technology

Oversized end piece has extra rigidity

Think different

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
On most carbon booms the end piece is the weakest point of the boom, because of smaller diameter of tubes. So we decide to go the opposite way and make our back end the strongest part of our carbon boom. We use a bigger diameter tail end to connect with the front part. In the front we use our custom tubes with extra thick wall for maximum stiffnes, while middle part has reduced wall thickness to keep the weight down. This achieves the ultimate rigidity paired with low weight.
