Kitefoil Board VR7 Freeride - 4.5" x 16'.9

The VR7 is associated with our very high-performance foil project, the ZENOS. Its dynamic DNA embodies the radicality but seduces by a particularly balanced relationship between sportiness and comfort.

This VR7 offers maximum performance without giving up the tolerance essential to very high level navigation.

The volume of the foilboard and the dimensions have been completely revised to result in a much more compact and dynamic set. In 2020, the VR7 takes more angle and provides a feeling of lightness and manoeuvrability under the feet.

The outline has been redesigned to provide better behaviour in contact with water. The spatula is much more progressive and the volume distribution more homogeneous.High-speed touchdowns do not destabilize the pilot and limit the loss of airspeed.

The low-deck capabilities of the VR7 were also improved with powerful accelerations during the take-off phase.

The construction of the VR7 2020 offers an absolute rigidity, the feedback of the foil is precisely measured. The Zenos VR7 is extremely accurate and equipped for the highest navigation regimes.

The characteristics

- Powerful acceleration amplified by volume distribution on the rear and front, giving exceptional stability

- Lower concave bridge to facilitate freerace supports, maintaining the comfort of freeride use

- More pronounced and parallel inverted rails along the entire length of the board

- Narrower outline and volume optimization for greater compactness

- Progressive scoop for better behaviour on the water and when touching.

- Low double concave hull to avoid suction effect without limiting acceleration.

- Reinforced fields, carbon, airex, heavy duty paint, VR6 is designed to last

- Large deck pad for excellent comfort

How our boards are built

Its closed-cell EPS core is digitally machined and successively clad:

- Fiber glass, a traditional material used in the manufacture of boards;
- Of carbon T700, arranged in the following 3 axes with recovery of forces on the housing to cope with the stresses of the foil

- a bio-polymer bamboo-fibre-epoxy composite applied longitudinally to the foil board, which provides a foilboard resilience property.This technology allows the board to accept session after session efforts without changing behaviour and thus avoid so-called "fatigue" breaks.

- a high-quality epoxy resin used in the manufacture of all these composites. This resin was chosen over another because its solvent-free base is not environmentally aggressive. Moreover, by its nature, it is not subject to the phenomenon of osmosis.

Its F-Box carbon housing with automatic game catch-up is integrated into the board during its construction and allows a solid connection between the deck and the hull.Carbon fibre reinforcements distribute the forces over a wide area thus increasing rigidity and response and improving the pilot/foil bond. Its perfect underrun results in an absence of drag and therefore a better glide performance.

 Its fields were reinforced with Airex and then covered with carbon.

Its wide and comfortable pads allow precise contact with the board.

Its polyester finish and bi-component paint are covered with UV-resistant polyurethane varnish.

On deck, a layer of Airex, a closed-cell material characterized by extreme tolerance to damage, strengthens the foot support area.

Its 32 inserts for Alpinefoil footstraps placed at the front and rear allow multiple combinations of foot placement. One, two, or three footstraps, placed straight or in V, loose or adjusted as close as possible to the feet, will personalize the ergonomics of this foilboard according to the level, the type of practice, the conditions of navigation, the morphology and preferences of the pilot. The positioning range of the footstrap is 15 cm at the front and 10 cm at the back.

We have chosen modern, high-tech materials over other, more classic and less expensive ones to design a high-quality, high-performance and original foilboard that is as well suited to your foil progression.
