Levitaz has its own high-tech production in Austria to guarantee the best quality possible.

Check out this Video to see where the Foils are manufactured:

Hi Adrian,
nice high gloss video made with effort, but I would prefer more substantional work, with at least a bit of information. Clicking this I think customers expect something about new products or really insight about production as alpine has done in its video some time ago. I know it is all much about transportation of feeling, but if it is just this..

I think new short alu struts are a good idea, if adapter is not to expensive. To late for me as cutted a carbon one, but also stepping 110, 96, 80, 60 looks good.

Still wonder if there ever will be a carbon fuselage similar to that one malolo shows with a steel inlay for the threads jacketed by carbon. Maybe I try to build one for the mono as easiest way and every 100 grams count :wink:

That was a waste of time to watch, could have been a ad for the architect of that building.

I totally understand that people would like to see more substantial work :lol: but we are very careful with what of our production we want to show.

Other brands have a different approach but we don't show much of what happens behind the scenes. The video was more about that we have our own production in Austria.

FYI - this was filmed after work hours :thumb:

It literally looks like your product with a different paint job...

Did they ask to copy?

Sorry, I have no idea,
what about malolo reminds or is like levitaz.

The only similarity is "sticking fuselage through strut base" but already from the other side. All the rest is as much completely different as it just can be:
- torsion control via conical hexagon instead of a steel plate
- many very different thicker wing shapes
- 3D-printed parts, different strut head design and not to forget much better bags
I just found it interesting, as till seeing it, I was not sure if a wide steel inlay inside carbon could work well.
There are indeed levitaz copies around as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A7VNx7RWFo


But I also think it fits better to topic, to discuss about new Levitaz products as far there are infos. Also think the new mid size board is a good idea, as EXO has been small for many.

And I am sure next video will be better specifiable from commercials for country tourism, building architecture, maybe soap and what not :wink:
