Why is carbon fork better than aluminum?

The answer of Filippi specialists to the eternal question:

The Aliante carbon fork gives the boat more stability. Why is that? The weight is transferred outside the shaft to the boat, through the "C" shaft support, which transfers the force evenly, while in the case of traditional fork constructions, a vertical turning force occurs between the bottom and top of the shaft, so the stability of the boat's drive increases, as the more the force acts towards the bow of the boat, the cleaner the hull behaves during the boat propulsion.

The Aliante carbon fork is lighter in terms of physical dimensions. Its lightness allows a more structured, layered construction to be used during the construction process, so we get a much stiffer, i.e. faster, ship. In addition, thanks to the stiffness of the Aliante carbon fork, it can transmit power more efficiently, without losing any of it due to fork deformation. A high-quality hull has an applied force of approx. It absorbs 17-18 percent. The new type of carbon aliente further improves this.

So the rower is able to convert his full force into the momentum of the boat, which technically means that he is always able to deliver the best performance. Of course, only technical facts, but reasons to consider in a highly technical sport to get an Aliante carbon fork as soon as possible. Of course, Filippi's innovation never stops...
