Looks nice, maybe except for handling pre-preg without gloves.

Carbon copies from China :o

Thanks for giving links from Alibaba, on the 2 first link this supplier is using the picture from internet, the first picture of 4.5 is a picture made in my home , the second one is a picture made by one of my american dealer near his swiming pool
and for the third link , we know tha actually a big surf brand is making copy or our 5.0 carbon we think it is a picture when this big brand carry the foil in a chinese company to do it. fortunatly ou lawyer are in charge of this. as you could see in the video Alpinefoil factory is french and manufacturing is done in france

I enjoyed the factory tour. I have the 5.0 titanium ultimate and it is fantastic! I have more than 2000 miles on it this season. The ride is smooth, fast and stable.
