LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® TECHNOLOGY
The LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® technology is a composition of Honeycomb Kevlar DuPont™ composites and Toraika T800 Carbon fiber. The Honeycomb Kevlar structure imbedded in a sandwich of CarbonFiber, helps absorbing the 80% of the vibrations coming from the pavement.
Military, aerospace and High-Performance cars industry has embraced Honeycomb composite made with DuPont™ Nomex® composite for the benefits of this revolutionary material. Today we can find the DuPont™ Nomex® Honeycomb in aircraft, F1 cars, helicopter blades and tail booms. Nomex® HC composites are also used in the construction of boats to help provide buoyancy that enhances speed.
We have applied the LUNAR Honeycomb Carbon/Kevlar® to some of our frames and after several years of designs, projects, prototypes and tests in the most important races in the world, we are today able to offer the fastest bicycles on the planet. Today we are proud to announce something unique, technologically advanced, performances oriented an absolutely brilliant: Handcrafted in Italy bikes with the exclusive LUNAR Honeycomb Carbon/Kevlar® technology.
Construction composites help strengthen concrete structures
LUNAR Honeycomb Carbon/Kevlar® deliver performance and value to customers in the construction composites industry by helping to provide better elongation properties.
This technology, allow our engineers to be focused on designing stiff frames with a superior reactiveness, because the Honeycomb technology absorb the vibrations comes from the road and make the bike very comfortable at the same time. Not only comfort but also better stability of the bike in every situation and more control in descents, which is means more speed.
AVION HC internal tube
As visible in the photo above, the core of the LUNAR Honeycomb Carbon/Kevlar® technology is a honeycomb structure made in Aramid Kevlar®. The Honeycomb structure is an aerospace-grade aramid fiber constructed from DuPont paper that is phenolic coated. Over-expanded cell structures allow it to be more flexible, which also makes it perfect for use in tight radius curves.
STRUCTURAL HONEYCOMB ADVANTAGES:
High fire resistance and thermally insulating
Vibration absorption power
Higher flexibility and strength
Sophisticate technology for the highest performance bikes on the planet:
Athletes expect performance, our technology helps you deliver it. LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® is a vibration-canceling technology that significantly improves performance without compromising structure, giving your product the competitive edge that today’s athletes need. A true composite-materials solution, LUNAR HC Carbon/Kevlar® is applicable to a wide range of commercial products with virtually no impact to the production and manufacturing process.
HONEYCOMB PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE:
