PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Every year, we invest a lot of time to enhance and fine tune our production process. Here is in a few lines, the differents technologies used to create the SELECT foil.

Exclusive technology: Part manufacturing in high pressure full carbon prepreg.

All masts / front wings / stabilizers profiles of our windfoils are made of carbon.

For our fuselages, we offer 2 different technologies: full prepreg carbon or Aluminum Aero: alloy specific to aeronautics, this material is solid, lightweight and ultra-rigid.
This technological development allows us to maintain the level of performance of our foils whilst reducing production costs to offer more attractive retail prices.

Our Alu Aero fuselages are machined directly in our workshop in France.

Whatever the technology used, they are built by SELECT / SM COMPOSITE.

The advantages of the SELECT technologies :

  • The moulding and machining ensure a high precision manufacturing and a constant production.
  • Thanks to the use of pre-preg, we can put reinforcements in differents directions to get the twist and flex values we are looking for.
  • We master of production process end to end : our hybrid carbon / aluminium foils benefit from the same hard work and dedication as the SELECT fins…no compromise on quality !
