The high-strength, light-weight properties of carbon fiber have taken sporting goods to the next level of performance. Golf shafts, racquets, skis, snowboards, hockey sticks, fishing rods, and bicycles have all been advanced through carbon fiber reinforcements.
Carbon fiber has been described as a game-changing material, and this couldn’t be truer as it is in sporting goods. Bikers ride faster, golfers swing stronger, skiers have more control and versatility; carbon fiber pushes sport to the next level of performance.
- 70% of the world’s filament wound golf shafts are wound on Entec filament winding machines (Entec is a Zoltek-owned company).
