The EF-model takes over all the advantages of the E-model - simplicity and economy.
Thanks to the 12 gores, the EF-model is much more usable for more complex artwork, sponsorship or advertising than the equally large types of the E-model.
EF envelope has the same technical parameters as the E-model, the same combinations with baskets and burners also apply to them.
This model is designed with the help of modern technology as the most economical, which in combination with the Kubicek Polyester Light fabric results in a very low weight.
