About Caran d'Ache Alchemix Ballpoint Pen - Solar Impulse Special Edition
With a bold fusion of materials and design, the Caran d'Ache Alchemix collection is a skilful combination of elements. Pure outlines and high-tech materials give Alchemix the perfect amalgam of power, strength and elegance.
To mark the successful completion of the historic flight between Japan and Hawaii, Caran d'Ache has dedicated this special edition pen to the Solar Impulse adventure. After 5 days, 5 nights and 7,900 km of non-stop flying in Solar Impulse, Andrí© Borschberg touched down in Hawaii on the morning of Friday July 3, 2015. With the eyes of the world looking on, and to the applause of his partner, Bertrand Piccard, he successfully completed this leg, which was as dangerous as it was gruelling, as part of the attempt to complete the first solar-powered circumnavigation of the globe.
In support of this human and technological challenge the Alchemix Solar Impulse Special Edition includes the official logo of Solar Impulse and reflects the state-of-the-art materials used to construct the plane, while its ultra-flat slimpack features the signatures of the two pilots, Andrí© Borschberg and Bertrand Piccard.
The Carbon finish has a gloss brilliant polished carbon fibre effect with polished chrome appointments.
Fitted with the legendary Caran d'Ache Goliath refill in colour blue with a medium tip.
