The Alpinefoil VR7 has a pronounced double concave hull shape prevents the suction effect that happens when a foil board with classic hull shape touches down and takes off. The result is smoother takeoff and faster acceleration, and the board remains stable and keep its speed at during touch-and-go riding.
The unique shape and a volume of 33.5 L and length of 149 cm x 45 cm, the VR7 board has plenty of volume while remaining compact and light, making it easy to water start without the need for big kites.
The progressive reversed rails allow easy and smooth gybes and limit the consequences of touchdowns during fast maneuvers.
Additional volume in the nose of the board helps the board behave well during foiling touchdowns and takeoffs.
The numerous carbon reinforcements in the deck and the hull increase stiffness and steering responsiveness.
The construction of the VR7 is identical to other Alpinefoil foil boards, giving it a still unmatched rigidity.
The CNC machined closed-cell EPS core is built up using:
carbon-wrapped wooden stringer running the entire length of the boarda central car
T700 carbon fiber, laid up along three axes to support the forces generated by the foil
A composite Bamboo fiber-epoxy biopolymer applied in the longitudinal direction of the board, which provides extra resilience and durability. This technology allows the board to be used session after session without deterioration in its performance characteristics – no board "fatigue.
Alpinefoil use a high quality epoxy resin in the construction of these composite boards. We chose this resin because its solvent-free base is not damaging to the environment. This resin is also highly resistant to osmosis.
For the deck we use a layer of Airex, a cell closed material characterized by extreme resistance to compression, which strengthens the support zone beneath the feet.
The rails are reinforced with Airex and then wrapped in carbon fiber.
The fully integrated internal carbon F-Box is built into the board during construction and provides a solid connection between the board and the foil. Carbon fiber reinforcements in the box-board construction distribute the forces over a wide area thereby increasing the rigidity and the responsiveness and improving the rider's feel on the foil.
The board's polyester finish and two-component paint are coated with a UV resistant polyurethane varnish.
The foot placement is wide and comfortable, allowing perfect and precise contact with the board.
The VR7 has a total of 32 inserts for footstraps at the front and rear, allowing for multiple combinations of foot placements. You can set up the FS-1 with 1, 2, or 3 foot straps, with a single front strap in the center or two front strap in a "V" configuration (or strapless of course), depending on your preference, riding style, and riding conditions.
