Why X-Booms?

Our booms are the stiffest on the market with less than 3% brittleness and we also give 2 years warranty.
You can choose your boom head.
We use tubes with narrow diameter (for slalom and formula – 27mm vertical x 31mm horizontal) which are easier to hold.
When you take apart the boom then both pieces are smaller than 175cm (incl. formula boom).
All the products are hand made by the company owner himself to give a personal service and guarantee the best quality.

How to choose the best boom size?

We recommend to use at least a 10cm longer boom than is recommended for your sail to guarantee the best rigidity and best position of the boom cleat which is located on the backend of the boom.

What boom head should I choose?

We offer for our booms the best boom heads on the market and for the slalom and formula we recommend:

  • Maui sails ®boom head for its balanced rigidity, flexibility and endurance
  • Streamlined ®boom head (SDM, RDM) for its rigid connection between boom and mast

For wave boom we recommend:

  • Severne ®boom head RDM

Why cork grip?

Our grip is made from cork which is natural material feeling good in your hands. The grip is also pretty warm (appreciated specially in the north of Europe), easy to repair and allowing tight connection between the boom tubes and backend to eliminate sand pollution.

Where can you meet us?

Our company is based in Czech Republic but you can meet us most of time in Tarifa (Spain) and the French event Defi.

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

X-Booms is a Czech family company established in 2011. Our products are handcrafted booms made from the best carbon fibre to provide top quality. Using our own elliptic tubes allows maximum rigidity of the boom whilst delivering minimal weight. We use mostly natural cork grip for its superior feel while holding the boom, endurance and warmth during cold weather sailing. To keep the highest quality of our booms we use the best possible components like Ronstan® rollers, Clamcleat® cleats and a boom head of your choice.
