The bicycle industry has been at the forefront of composite lifestyle and consumer product development using carbon fibre and other advanced composite materials.
This ShapeTex preform showcases the excellent use of carbon fibre in a structural application with plies curving and along in the load path direction.
A ShapeTex preform that is the exact shape of the final part has the significant advantage of being a “no waste” process bringing significant cost advantages to using this process.
The bicycle seat preform showcases these advantages.
