ROCKET SCIENCE

The most successful, most popular and most advanced raceboards. The Phantom series dominate through sheer technological advantage, with their Bat Wings, slanted mast track concept and raised side walls.

For 2018, they are available in a few sizes: the Phantom 295, the Phantom 299, the Phantom 377 and a new Phantom 377 L shape that is thicker, with a new slanted mast track position and daggerboard position for more performance in light winds.

The Phantom 299 is available in Carbon Reflex, Carbon L.C.F. and 3DX. It is also available as a Phantom One, for racing clubs and national associations, with a special extra-durable construction and simplified graphics.

The Phantom 377 and 377 L are available in Carbon Reflex and our more environmental-friendly Carbon L.C.F. construction.

PHANTOM 299

The Phantom 299 is the dedicated R300 Class design, a thoroughly modern raceboard built for technical racing and a lower planing threshold.

Considerably shorter than the 377, it is 2 cm wider than the Phantom 377 to improve planing performance while losing as little as possible in pre-planing conditions.

In high winds, the Phantom 299 is tracks best upwind without the daggerboard. When heading downwind, the compact outline and wider shape allows it to go deeper than the 377.

The 299 is also available as the Phantom One, a Phantom 299 finished in an extra durable construction and built for direct sales to national clubs and associations.

PHANTOM 377 | PHANTOM 377 L

The Phantom 377 carries over from 2017 with new graphics. It is longer, narrower and thinner than the Phantom 299. Recommended for sailors under 80 kg (175 lb).

The Phantom 377 L is all-new, with improved light wind performance. It is thicker, with new mast track and daggerboard positions and a new outline. Recommended for sailors over 80 kg (175 lb).

PROFILES

The Phantom 377 is 19.5 cm thick at its thickest point. The Phantom 299 is 3 cm thicker to compensate for the shorter length while still lifting early onto the rail.

The new Phantom 377 L is 1 cm thicker than the Phantom 299. This helps the board to get onto its rails quicker while avoid nose dives and maintaining the nose over the chops.

BAT WINGS

All Phantoms feature the Starboard Bat Wings.

These Bat Wings offer a wide planing surface at high speeds with reduced drag and more lift at low speeds. This translates into earlier planing, improved upwind tracking, a wider wind range and the possibility to use larger fins.

On the new Phantom 377 L, the Bat Wings are wider at 60 cm by 3 cm. They're also narrower in the tail to get more top-end speed and a better feel of the fin.

This helps to get planing earlier than before thanks to the wider planing surface at the front footstrap but because the wetted surface area behind the fin is smaller, it also increases top-end speed.

SLANTED MAST TRACK

The slanted adjustable mast track raises the front section to help the board get on its rail even earlier in light winds and sinks the back section below deck level to improve control in planing conditions.

On the Phantom 377 L, the mast track has been moved 2 cm further back. Combined with the daggerboard being moved forward by 2 cm, it helps make the board more sensitive in light winds and get on the rail quicker.

BOTTOM SHAPE

The flat Vee bottom shape of the Phantoms absorbs chop, improves tracking and helps the board roll onto its rail.

DAGGERBOARD

As mentioned above, the daggerboard is placed 2 cm further forward on the Phantom 377 L to help make the board more sensitive in light winds.

All Phantoms are supplied with a Drake Daggerboard 78 cm for optimum all-round performance.

DRAKE READY to RACE

DRAKE READY to RACE

The Phantom 299 is delivered with a high performance Drake Race 58 Ready to Race while the Phantom 377 and Phantom 377 L are supplied with the Drake Race 52 Ready to Race fins.

They have an extremely quick and efficient foil with a near vertical rake angle that generates massive power for early planing, accelerations and deep angles.

DRAKE ULTRALIGHT MK. IV FOOTSTRAPS

The Phantoms are fitted with the next iteration of Drake UltraLight footstraps.

These hydrophobic footstraps weigh 99 grams dry, saving up to 232 grams dry and 676 grams when wet.

Two layers of Kevlar X-Ply monofilm replace the internal plastic strip to keep the footstrap comfortable, light and flexible and eliminate any stretch.

CARBON L.C.F.

The Phantom 299, 377 and 377 L are available in our new carbon construction designed for the lightest weight but also the lowest carbon footprint.

At 86 kg of CO2 emissions for a 117 liter board, Carbon L.C.F. is our most environmentally-friendly board yet, using bio resin and our exclusive end-grain Balsa sandwich core.
Learn more about Carbon L.C.F.

CO2 EMISSIONS PER TECHNOLOGY

 

Our bio-resin has half the carbon emissions footprint of conventional epoxy resin and end-grain Balsa has a tenth of the footprint of conventional PVC sandwich cores.

Boards built using the Carbon L.C.F. technology use Smart Carbon vectors: putting the carbon smartly in the right places for an optimized combination of stiffness, flex and feel and ultimately allowing us to use less of it.

We've also removed all plastic from our packaging: bubble-wrap, plastic dust bags and EPS blocks have been replaced with honeycomb and corrugated cardboard to further reduce the carbon footprint of a Starboard.

CARBON REFLEX

Carbon Reflex is our flagship technology, built to be lightest and fastest.

The deck uses the lightest grade of biaxial carbon fibres orientated between 45 and 30 degrees for optimized flex and reflex characteristics.

The bottom of the board uses 45 degrees biaxial carbon, as uni-directional carbon proved to be too stiff for longer raceboards.
