Pocket kitefoil Full Carbon,

Ultra Light (1.9 kg)

A new ultra-innovative Pocket kitefoil 100%  made in France

Alpinefoil Innovates and presents its new pocket no volume 100% carbon prepreg built as a foil wing.

It took 10 years for AlpineFoil to once again embark on the construction of a no-volume board.
In fact, it was in 2011 that the first volume plate in Airex 20 mm was produced by AlpineFoil.
This project is the culmination of two years of development and maturation but especially of ten years of experience in manufacturing foil wings in prepreg.

The challenge was not to bring another pocket in the middle of the kitefoil but to really bring something new, the specifications for this board was to take out a board, solid, light (1.9 kg  +- a few grams.) with new sensations.
We also absolutely wanted a concave bridge like our planks with volume, 
Inverted rails on the hull and a double concave for touchettes.

Last point, it was absolutely necessary that this board be ultra rigid:

Only with a core of 20 mm all this is almost impossible, with 20 mm of thickness, even with high-end carbon the board is not totally rigid, the thickness is insufficient to be able to dig the volumes and generate the concaves necessary for its behavior.
The solution was to completely review the usual production method of this type of board and thus to model a form that allows to meet the stiffness constraints while using prepreg carbon. 

The bold choice was to use the method of making foil wings for a pocket but it’s a resounding success!

Unfortunately this technology at a cost, it is moreover disproportionate for the manufacture of a board.
The mould weighs more than 200 kg, and took more than 3 weeks to be machined and manufactured in-house. 

Today the result is there and we were right to make these bold choices.
