Alpinefoil 5.0 Access V2 Kitefoil
Following the incredible success of the Alpinefoil 5.0 Access 2015, we are now ready to release the 2016 Access V2!
New for 2016:
- A fully designed mast with a new internal structure and updated hydrodynamic profile to further reduce cavitation and improve high speed performance.
- The fuselage now incorporates notches for the GIS (Galvanic Isloation system) shims for fast and easy assembly.
- A optional short mast is now available – ideal for learning to foil and for kite schools!
- 4 boxes are available: KF-Box, Tuttle, Platinum, and Probox.
New for 2016, the Alpinefoil 5.0 Access V2 is the direct evolution of Alpinefoil Access 2015. Modern design, performance comparable to the best carbon foils and an affordable price make the ACCESS V2 5.0 a unique product in the kitefoil universe.
The ACCESS 5.0 V2 is designed to be ACCESSible to all riders. Beginners will progress quickly and confidently while more experienced riders will climb the steps of the podium. The Alpinefoil Access is the first aluminium foil to hit 30 knots (with the Alpinefoil Sport wing).
Unique and exclusive to Alpinefoil, our patented GIS galvanic isolator system, allows us to use carbon wings and an aluminium fuselage without risk of galvanic corrosion.
Exclusive to Alpinefoil, the injection moldied GIS wedges electrically isolate the components of the foil and thus entirely eliminates electrolysis from the contact between the carbon and aluminum.
A complex shape for a very low drag and a high stiffness
The second function of the GIS wedges is to allow the ACCESS 5.0 V2 the most extensive versatility on the market. The ACCESS 5.0 V2 comes with a full set of 8 different GIS wedges – 4 front and 4 back – that allow you to adjust the angle of the foil according to your preference, your riding style, your Alpinefoil (or other brand) board, and your choice of wing and stabilizer.
