North iBase 2.0
North is 100% convinced that absolutely 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. All these unique features do not lead to any additional weight, something other bases in the market cannot claim to achieve!Some call it fanaticism; we call it attention to detail. Even in supposedly unimportant components there is a lot of potential, you just have to realize it. This requires the courage to think differently and to patiently rethink or question even proven designs. That`s exactly what our engineers have done together with the team when it came to developing a completely new, universal mast base system. The top priority in addition to the functionality was the requirement to create ONE single, uncompromising system for ALL conditions. The result is the iBASE, the lowest mast base system with central screw!
Version 2.0 comes with a new, ergonomically shaped main-body that facilitates tightening and opening of the base significantly.
A: For all hardcore freaks the release button now optionally can be fixed with a screw (PERMA.LOCK.OPTION).
B: Should the iBASE ever become stuck to the board after long storage times, now two holes allow using a screwdriver as a lever to release the base.
Low profile, extreme durability
To guarantee that the iBASE can be attached and detached without any tools, it was deliberately designed with a central screw. Although these solutions usually require a relatively high profile, our engineers have found a solution that makes it 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 bases, 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.
