Unidirectional Carbon Fibre

You will probably be used to seeing a carbon weave on many items. These 'weaves' are a part of the manufacturing process, and you will see them called 12K, 6k, 3k etc. The smaller the number the closer the weave pattern.

Unidirectional carbon fibre is another method of producing carbon, but no weaves are visible. Instead, the material is layed on top of each other in a random pattern, and results, particularly in strong sunlight, to appear that the moulding process is random. It results in a much stronger, and stiffer frameset when used in bicycles, such as our Aero 883 or Sportive Racing frames.
