Pros & Cons

  • Cardan Joint does not create tension when not in use unlike Tendon and Power Joint options so less exposed to UV damage
  • Ideal for inflatable windsurf and sup boards as the plug to accommodate the baseplate will not be loaded when the rig is still connected
  • In certain positions the sideways flexing properties can vary
  • Less shock absorbing capability compared to Power Joint or Boge Joint options
