    The Blackgold Rig is the world's most advanced Optimist rig. For many years it has been chosen as the official charter rig for the I.O.D.A World, European, Asian and Oceanian Championships.

    Several outstanding results have been achieved in the past years. A lot of credit goes to all the coaches, trainers and sailors with whom we developed this ultimate rig for Optimist racing.

    Feature for feature, there is no equal to the Optiparts Blackgold set. 45 microns Black hard anodized 7075 mast, a choice of 3 black anodized booms and a black anodized 7075 sprit. All black fittings, hard anodized cleats, a black sprit chafe guard, captive eye straps on the boom, a halyard cleat with becket. Zero stretch, zero creep, black, Vectran line package, 45 mm power boom, Harken ball bearing halyard blocks and pure Vectran spliced halyards.

    • Heavy duty Black hard anodized 7075 T6 mast.
    • Aerospace spec. alloy super stiff 7075 T6 mast and sprit section.
    • High Delrin heel plug, for less friction and to avoid wear.
    • Stainless steel hook-in block backing plate - to avoid wear.
    • Through bolted and insulated vang cleat - to prevent failure.
    • Aluminum pin stop instead of plastic - to avoid breakage.
    • Aluminum pennant holders - which do not cut the lines.
    • Halyard with Harken hook-in block and 29 mm Harken Tielite block.
    • Pure Vectran spliced halyard.
    • Low friction nylon wind indicator - extra sensitive.
    • Delrin pin type heel-plug - no wear.
    • Vectran control lines - zero stretch, zero creep - the ultimate.
    • Sprit adjuster handle.

    The 55 mm Blackmax Boom is ultra stiff and yet lightweight boom can be used without a bridle. This enables the larger sailor to land further forward when tacking.

    The 29 mm Blackmax Racing Sprit has 19% stiffer than the 27 mm Blackgold sprit; it gives more control over the leech of the sail and is especially recommended for sailors over 45 kg.
