DUOTONE Extension Power.XT 2.0
- Max. length: 36
- Diameter: RDM
An inspiring (r)evolution – the POWER.XT 2.0 can do much more and do it better than the previous model. And as POWER.XT 2.0 SLS RDM 36 it is also the most lightweight ratchet extension of all time!
Beyond the basic idea, the POWER.XT 2.0 has almost nothing in common with the previous model any more. From the extremely solid ratchet mechanism plus lever to the simplified release mechanism, the high-strength Lyros® Dyneema harness downhaul lines and the option to retrofit the damper function – everything has been radically upgraded. The latest version comes with a completely new adjustment ring, which offers a unique feature: based on the tried-and-tested SDM adjustment ring, the RDM version now for the first time ensures that the aluminum tube does not come into contact with the mast anymore, which avoids any contact corrosion. No other RDM extension can offer that! In order to guarantee the same durability despite the reduced diameter, a double-walled construction of 7075 aluminum outer tube and ovalized T8 inner tube is used (patent pending).
For many years, the POWER.XT has been the benchmark when it comes to extensions with trimming tools. Those who use it will never want to do without it again. Thanks to the integrated lever, it overcomes even the strongest downhaul forces, enabling perfect re-trimming or fine-tuning even when on the water. Even children could handle the extreme luff tension of modern slalom sails, each profile can be adjusted to millimetre precision in a matter of seconds. The 15 cm long lever and the ratio of 1:60 enable trimming without any noticeable effort.

AVOIDS TANGLED ROPES! All UNI.XT and POWER.XT 2.0 feature a slotted top cap. This way you can get rid of the excess rope during storage and transportation.
Based on the original SDM adjustment ring the iSNAP 2.0 offers some unique benefits:
- The extension tube cannot come in contact with the mast anymore thus preventing any contact corrosion. No other RDM extension can do this!
- The 2-component pins feature a synthetic head which prevents the tube from being damaged during the adjustment process.
- The iSNAP 2.0 is the lightest adjustment system on earth. Yet the proven construction provides maximum durability.
Attention: the RDM iSNAP 2.0 is NOT compatible with older RDM extensions (season 2019 and older).
1. ADVANTAGES WHEN SETTING UP THE SAIL:
- Faster rigging: attach rope-loop – pull on standard-cleat – ratchet, ready!
- Significantly less power required (power ratio approx. 1/60)
- No need for trimming tools (e.g. “easy-rig“ or harness hook)
2. ADVANTAGES ON THE WATER:
- Adjustments can be made even on the water, increasing as well as releasing (e.g. when the wind speed changes)
- Increased safety
- Sail performance and wind range are exploited to the full
2 THREAD SYSTEM POWER.XT 2.0
NOW COMPATIBLE WITH ALL SAIL BRANDS! The POWER.XT 2.0 features a stainless-steel open pulley enabling loop-loop-go rigging – the fastest and most comfortable way to rig your sail! The POWER.XT 2.0 is now the first choice even for sails with twisted tack-rollers (e.g. Loft, Naish, Severne). Yet their rope distribution has been taken into account during construction. This tack-roller orientation does not permit a loop-loop-go rigging though, means the rope needs to be threaded.
RAPID RELEASE POWER.XT 2.0
INSTANT DE-RIGGING! Due to the modified position of the standard cleat, just place one foot on the extension and pull the rope with a short jerk out of the cleat – done.
SHOX UPGRADE KIT
PIONEERING DAMPING TECHNOLOGY! All UNI.XT and POWER.XT 2.0 extensions can be upgraded with the unique Duotone SHOX suspension system (except AERO). SHOX is the first integrated shock absorber, which adds a chassis to the board similar to a full-suspension on a mountain bike. Especially in choppy conditions it smooths out the board and the rig, absorbing chop and the impact after landing. Tests in all leading Windsurf-magazines have proven that the rig doesn’t bump, the rider can convert the wind power much more effective into acceleration making you a proven 2-3 knots faster, and also preserves the equipment and your joints. Whether speed, racing or freeride, the SHOX.UPGRADE.KIT definitely guarantees more control, more speed and more comfort.
During wave sailing the SHOX suspension system provides cushioned landings and increased board control when going down-the-line as well as when crossing the white water. The upgrade is easily done in a few simple steps. The new, very stiff cup ensures that the suspension tube runs with absolutely no friction, the damping elements respond more sensitively and thereby creates a more enjoyable ride. No wonder that almost all of our top athletes swear by the SHOX option rather than going without!
