Alpinefoil 5.0 Access V2 Kitefoil

Alpinefoil 5.0 Access V2 Kitefoil

1 alpine.jpg
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.

I love how the Alpinefoil looks! :thumb:
Nevertheless carbon in combination with aluminium... :o
I hope they have a good solution to electrically cancel out any contact between the 3 materials...

Alpinefoil continue to make his very high quality fuselage in full CNC milling the process of manufacturing is extremly long , more then 8 hour just for Milling
then CNC fusleage is manualy polished, then we make a thermic traitment to modify the internal aluminium structure to come to T6 state that give very high stiffness of the fuselage
After this we make Anodisation OAD 70 micron for having a good protective corrosion . finaly the fuselage receive printing.

Hey Mig, I have an AlpineFoil Ultimate. And I can send you some pics if you want.
Still in perfect conditions after 6 months.
The secret?? Clear water & grease.... But, in fact, everybody who live near the sea know this...

Thanks, just bought another foil from France ;)

Unfortunately that is not the case...
Some are, but most are not aware.

Moses is using the same combination and seems to hold up quite well.

About the new 2017 Alpinefoil 5.0 Access V2 version,

Alpinefoil patented the GIS system Galvanic Isolation system, that alow to fix all the Alpinefoil carbon wings to the Aluminium fuselage,
with this sytem, carbon don't corrode the aluminium, it is extremly important.

Rider have now the choice in between 8 differents wings all carbon and with curve design (not flat wing) for maximum comfort

also the second function ot the GIS Sytem is to give the possibility to make any seting you want in fucntion of your board, Kitefoil, Windfoil and level of riding

beguiner will use 0° setting on front and rear 0° also , then after a time Alpinefoil with the XLP2 wing using 0° on front and 0.7° on rear or eventually 1.1° on rear

Aluminium is present a lot in marine activities , you will find this on every boat engine, sail boat , windsurf boom, windsurf bottom mast ...
To prevent any corrosion it is important to care of it, that mean to clean your foil with clear water, to don't let it full assembled for a long time, to grease the thread
if this is done the foil keep a very good aspect
