Why do we stick with carbon fiber?
Ultra-light carbon fiber, hard material, carbon fiber cloth, modern machinery, high temperature baking, multi-layer stacking to increase rigidity
【Ultra Lightweight】Carbon fiber is one of the composite materials with high strength and light weight. Under the same volume, it is 5 times lighter than steel and nearly 2 times lighter than aluminum.
【High Strength and Stiffness】Compared to metal, plastic and wood, carbon fiber has the highest specific strength and specific modulus (stiffness) per unit density
[Corrosion resistance and wear resistance] The material of carbon fiber is epoxy resin, which is inert, not easy to corrode or rust, and the carbon bond in the fiber is extremely strong and resistant to oxidation.
【Low Thermal Expansion】When metal is heated, it expands, causing problems and possible failure of parts. Carbon fiber has virtually no thermal expansion.
【Low Thermal Conductivity】As a conductor, metal can transfer or radiate heat to the surroundings and cause heat soaking. In comparison, the thermal conductivity of carbon fiber is very low.
【Radiation Transparency】Carbon fiber is transparent to radiation and invisible in X-rays, making it valuable for use in medical devices.

low thermal expansion
Metal expands when heated, causing problems and possible failure of parts. Carbon fiber has virtually no thermal expansion.
low thermal conductivity
Metals act as conductors and can transfer or radiate heat to the surroundings and cause heat soaking. In comparison, the thermal conductivity of carbon fiber is very low.

Rockets and spacecraft are subjected to enormous loads when they are launched into space. To survive, they must be made of strong and durable materials. Another important factor in rocket launches is weight, which is why carbon fiber is the material of choice for the aerospace industry.
Carbon fiber materials are ideal for fuselage components and rotor arms for recreational or industrial drones.
Carbon fiber can be used in a wide range of applications from diving fins to kayak accessories and boat construction and decoration.
Whether you're looking to save weight or save money on your RV, car, truck, ATV, to add some style to your motorcycle or scooter, carbon fiber can be used for many different purposes.
Carbon fiber has the best parameters for weight, stiffness, durability and ease of use in bike construction. Therefore, it can withstand high impact forces, allowing athletes to reach the finish line faster.
Due to its high strength, light weight and low damping, carbon fiber has become an ideal material for musical instruments, capable of making instruments comparable to the most expensive wooden models.
The increased strength-to-weight ratio of the carbon fiber material not only makes the racket lighter, but it also allows for greater control over the manufacturing process and racket quality, resulting in improved comfort, control and power swings in use.
Advantages of carbon fiber frames
While ensuring light weight, rigidity and shock absorption, carbon fiber itself is both soft and processable. Through aerodynamic performance testing and research and development, the geometric angle and airflow path of the frame are optimized to improve the windproof performance of the frame. Riders can easily handle headwinds or crosswinds and maximize riding speed. This kind of performance can best reflect its advantages when climbing. It is smooth and refreshing, unlike the aluminum alloy frame, which has a backward pull.
Advantages of carbon fiber forks
The molding method of carbon fiber is to lay the fiber sheet on the mold, and then flow into the resin for sintering, which can be made into various shapes of frames. This urban character dictates the formation of a newly designed lightweight and super-streamlined carbon fiber fork. After a series of tricks and improvements, the weight of the front fork reduces drag and increases its lateral stiffness, giving it a unique windproof structure that enables precise handling of the bike, making it the best guiding travel helper for the rider.
Advantages of carbon fiber wheels
It is important for a rider to have a solid and reliable pair of wheels. The new carbon fiber rim design allows the bicycle to widen the width of the inner and outer rims, and also meets the requirements of the lightweight and rigidity of the rim, which well achieves the aerodynamic effect and makes the wheel table flow.
The airflow over the surface is smoother and smoother for easy starts and quick acceleration.
