Re: Armstrong Foil is junk

Stainless steel is stronger than titanium. I do not understand why companies like Armstrong market hype titanium which is weaker and softer than steel. Titanium has a higher strength:weight ratio, that's it. So using it on bolts that weigh a few grams is kind of pointless.

Re: Carbon mast on liquid force impulse setup?

I think a carbon fuselage would be more improvement than a carbon mast. My lift carbon mast weighs about the same as my aluminum (zeeko) mast, but the carbon fuselage and wingset weighs less than an aluminum fuselage (without wings). Liquid force does make a carbon fuselage, or at least they did. P...

Re: Moses 72cm Mast Review

quoted from the moses website: https://moseshydrofoil.com/products/mast-72-carbon-plate-kitesurf "The shape and the profile are designed to have the stiffest and the lowest torsion carbon mast in the market. Everything in this mast is optimised to have a quick response for Surf wings. Despite the ex...

Or you can submit them through the website. As mentio...

Re: Lightweight carbon mast for any wings

carbon masts have certainly improved since I started this 3 years ago, but I still see little benefit to them over the aluminum counterparts that now cost 1/4 the price... Yet you propose and sell them? R H R H, did you not visit the website? Project Cedrus is 40% lighter than aluminum masts. It is...

Re: Lightweight carbon mast for any wings

Thanks Derek440, I took inspiration for Project Cedrus from the cycling industry. I actually have various steel, titanium, and carbon fiber bike frames that are up to 20 years old. I have upgraded wheels, replaced the groupsets 2-3 times, and made small customizations along the way that keep them fe...

Re: Lightweight carbon mast for any wings

Thanks for your questions. I don't have latest weights for Moses, but again Cedrus weights are on the websites. 90cm mast is 1.25kg, and the lightweight mount is 0.25kg. https://projectcedrus.com/mounting/ Project Cedrus can connect to any board because the mounts are separate machined components an...

Re: Lightweight carbon mast for any wings

just one thing that guys must remember when weighing their masts, the removable base plates weigh a considerable amount, and if your making adaptors for your masts the weight of these is not to be ignored. This is a good point, which is why all of the mounts and adapter weights are listed on the we...

Re: Lightweight carbon mast for any wings

Happy to report the project is going great! We are beyond serial number 50 now, after a brief setback due to COVID-19. So far all of my customers are really happy with the stiffness and compatibility of the mast. I have transitioned to the bigger Lift 150 wings, and Project Cedrus is perfect for the...
