The Alpinefoil Access 5.0 V3, is accessible to all riders. beginners will progress quickly and confidently whereas the most experienced riders will find that they can really get the most from the Access V3. The Alpinefoil Access V3 5.0 is the first Aluminum hydrofoil to reach 30 knots using the sport wing option.
The new Alpinefoil Access V3 is the direct evolution of Alpinefoil Access 2016. A Modern design, performance comparable to the best carbon foils at an attractive price makes the Alpine Foil ACCESS V3 5.0.07 a unique product in the kitefoil world. If you have previously looked around at current foil designs on the market, that offer a short mast Aluminium set up you will notice that the Alpine foil is streets ahead in design and quality.
The Alpine foil ACCESS 5.0 V3.07 is designed to be accessible to all riders. Beginners will progress quickly and confidently while more experienced riders will find that the Access has the option to be a race winning foil. With the Aplinefoil access being the first Aluminium foil to reach 30 Knots.
Exclusive to Alpine Foil is there patented GIS galvanic isolator system which allows Alpinefoil to use carbon wings with an aluminium fuselage without the risk of Galvanic corrosion. If you have purchased or used some other foils in the past then such as Slingshot, Liquid force or Naish you will have had this problem. And found that you cannot get your foil apart again.
Not only have Alpinefoil patented the GIS system, they also have and exclusive injection moulded GIS wedges. These electrically Isolate the components of the Foil and thus Entirely eliminates, electrolysis from the contact between carbon and Aluminium.
The GIS wedges also allows you to tune Access wings, 4 for the front and 4 for the back wing. With this option. With the option it allows the Access 5.0 to be set up for windfoiling as the windfoil requires a much larger angle of attack.
The Alpinefoil (Reflex Stabillty System) which is a selling point for Alpinefoils, is designed to stop the foil looking for extra torque on the wing, the Alpinefoil is supremely stable and consistent from 6Knots to 30knots.
Alpinefoil continue to use the now standard KF-Box foil mount (KiteFoil Box), the only box specifically designed for the foil. This box distributes the massive loads on the five large surfaces of the mast-box connection, providing superior rigidity and durability. Using this standard KF-Box makes the 5.0 Full Carbon compatible with all Alpinefoil foilboards (VR5,VR6,VR7, CXV6S) as well as foil boards from other manufacturers such as F-One, 3G Camet.
The Alpinefoil Access 5.0 V2.07 can also be ordered with other mounts: Tuttle box, Platinum mount (compatible Liquid force, Naish, Slingshot, Cabrinha, Sword 1 Carafino and many other boards), and Probox (compatible with Sroka, Sword 2 and other boards).
The Alpinefoil ACCESS 5.0 V2.07 like the previous model is manufactured from 6061 T6 aluminium normally used in the aerospace industry. This type of aluminum is durable, light and is well know for its low tendancy to Oxidize is known for its high resistance / All components from Alpinefoil are manufactured in an ultra modern factory which specializes in aerospace parts.
The mast is shaped by extrusion and then CNC machined. It is then anodized using 70 micron OAD (Hard Anodizing). Its shape has been reworked from the 2015 Access design to reduce cavitation incase maximum speed. Its internal profile is completely redesigned for improved rigidity and easier assembly.
The Alpinefoil Access 5.0 V2.07 is available in normal mast (95 cm) or short mast (60 cm) or a combo pack with both normal and short masts. It is also available with 80cm and custom mast.
The 95cm mast is the standard size – this length is required for comfortable high speed riding, the longer mast stops the foil from cavitation, and therefore stops the tendency for staling.
The short 60cm mast is ideal for foil novices and learning to foil, it really gives the rider the chance to understand foiling a lot more. The Short mast teaches the rider to get the perfect balance point. Before venturing onto the longer masts.
Alpinefoil have 2 mast options, and the lengths they have decided to use are as follows:
95cm Normal mast
60cm Short mast
The Alpinefoil fuselage is fully machined, in 5 Axis CNC, raw aluminium block, and then its is anodised with the 70 micron OAD process.
Set up is simple and with 4 Screws to distribute the load and provide the best connection of the wings to the fuselage. This system is now on all Alpinefoils allowing complete.
Four screw inserts are staggered to distribute to provide the best connection of the wing to the fuselage, ensuring the rigidity and cohesion of the components as a system. This system now standard on all Alpinefoils and allows full compatibility with all our existing and future wings (Wave, Sport, GT, XLP, Race, etc...). The XLP 2 wing that ships with the Alpinefoil 5.0 has been redesigned and is built with an exclusive MCF (Monobloc Continuous Carbon Fiber) Technology for rigidity, improving the control and performance of the foil, whatever the wind speed. The XLP 2 is the must-have wing from Alpinefoil. It enables beginners to learn to foil and move with confidence, while the more experienced rider can achieve speeds of up to ~28 knots. The XLP 2 has an area of 682 cm² and the progressively recurved wings allow complete control from 4 knots without being overpowered.
The rear stabilizer wing has been designed to increase control in low range and high-speed stability.
Like all of Alpine foils, the ACCESS 5.0 V2 is easy to disassemble and packs fully flat for easy transport in the optional Alpinefoil travel case.
The combination of carbon and aluminum, exclusive to Alpinefoil, and has allowed them to create a foil with top-class performance at a very affordable price. The choice of quality materials, careful design and excellent performance make the ACCESS V3 5.0 Alpinefoil a sure win for riders all over the world.
