Duotone Uni XT 2020
Stripping back weight to reveal the bare essentials of what an extension needs to be was a key design criteria during the development of the Uni.XT. Available in carbon or alu and suited to all sail brands.
UNI.XT – the most technically advanced and yet the most lightweight standard aluminium extension we have ever built. Now also built using AERO carbon technology to create the most lightweight extension in the world.
When it comes to standard extensions, everyone has probably experienced some nasty surprises at some point. They rarely fit with the rope alignment on the sail, most of them need high downhaul forces, and more often than not the mechanism for adjusting the height is extremely fiddly. Before designing the UNI.XT we analysed all of these issues in detail and came up with workable solutions. The strong and super-solid UNI.XT extension may look like numerous other standard extensions at first glance, yet it is replete with innovations which make it a far superior product. 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).
THE FIRST AND ONLY EXTENSION ON THE MARKET WHICH IS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL SAIL BRANDS.
LIGHTEST EXTENSION - UNI XT AERO RDM 36: THE LIGHTEST EXTENSION ON EARTH
2 THREAD SYSTEM - COMPATIBLE WITH ALL SAIL BRANDS
The UNI.XT features a stainless-steel open pulley enabling loop-loop-go rigging – the fastest and most comfortable way to rig your sail! The UNI.XT 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. Furthermore, this roller arrangement for the first time enables the Loop-Loop-Go feature for all sail brands. Simply fit the rope loop over one of the outer rollers and start trimming.
DOUBLE FOOT TRIM - 30% INCREASED EFFICIENCY
In terms of rigging comfort the UNI.XT offers much more than existing standard extensions. In order to ensure the most effective tensioning of the downhaul we have designed the cup under ergonomic points of view incorporating the DOUBLE.FOOT.TRIM. Through the intelligent positioning of the cleat, for the first time it is now possible to prop with both feet against the cup, and thus cope far greater forces avoiding lower back strain. Now you can use the same technique for the downhauling as in rowing, where you naturally also use both feet to mobilize maximum power through pushing with the feet rather than pulling through your back. That increases the power efficiency by approx. 30% compared to the usual one foot operation!
RAPID RELEASE - 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.

ISNAP 2.0 - THE LIGHTEST AND MOST INTUITIVE LENGTH ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM TODATE!
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.
