THE PROCESS OF CREATING PERFECTION.
By now it’s almost common knowledge, the material we call carbon fibre is a combination of different types of carbon filaments bonded and held in place by resin. Just as there are different alloys of aluminium and steel, so there are numerous types of carbon fibre filaments. We use various grades of Toray and Mitsubishi materials combined in different ways. Unidirectional (UD) carbon fibre has all the filaments running the same way – it's very strong in one direction, less so in others. Woven carbon has interlaced filaments positioned at 90 degrees to one another, making the sheet strong in multiple directions. It’s about using it where and when appropriate, all with the view to deliver a superior ride quality suitable to each and every bike in the range.
