Our new Velocity™ Series offers affordable two-piece telescoping carbon fiber whisker poles that quickly adjust to the necessary length with an easy-to-use line control system. Designed to maximize downwind sailing efficiency for racers or cruisers, these lightweight poles can be quickly deployed, adjusted and retracted as needed with a simple pull of a line.
The Velocity™ series poles feature strong all carbon fiber construction. This allows them to be telescoped to match the clew position of almost any jib, genoa or asymmetrical sail. The pole's length is easily adjusted to fit using Forespar's new 2:1 line control system which is partially led to the outside of the pole for quick location. This ultra smooth system allows the two pieces to be quickly and securely extended for deployment, or retracted for storage, by almost anyone onboard by simply pulling and cleating the adjustment line. Once fully retracted, Velocity™ poles are easily stored on or below deck using only a minimal footprint. They can also be vertically stored in front of the mast using our optional track and car pole storage system.
All Velocity™ poles feature Forespar's exclusive Marelon® lightweight and non-marring UXP composite pole ends that can be attached to the mast using a mast car or fixed mast mount. Each pole comes standard with a matte textured EZ Grip finish. They can also be customized with a high gloss clear coat.
