A story about Carbonin is Peter’s story
What do you do when you can’t find parts for racing motorcycles that fit your demands?
Simple: You make them on your own.
Well, it’s not THAT simple. Reading a story about Carbonin will help you understand how and why we stand behind the quality of our carbon and avio fiber motorcycle parts. Here’s Peter’s story:
I was a passionate motorcycle racer, addicted to speed and committed to perfection, just like you might be. But back then, at the end of the second Millenium, there was a lack of quality parts for the race bike I was tuning by myself.
The parts were either too heavy, or they didn’t fit at all – and they broke into pieces after a slide. No one likes to fall – but that’s just as part of racing as winning a race. You can’t find your and your bikes’ limits if you don’t go over the line …
I started making parts by myself. At first, that was in 1999, it was only for my second biggest love, the Honda CBR600RR, but after some of my racing buddies saw my work, the demand was on. After testing the parts on the track and improving the production process on every try, the parts became good, incredibly great for that time.
My goal was to take away all the unnecessary work, like drilling holes, installing the right bolts, cutting the parts, and bending the original holders to fit. Racers and mechanics were nodded contentedly after a simple out-of-the-box installation. The parts fit!
Putting on new race fairings became as simple as installing an app on a smartphone today. And they kept their original shape after a crash or a slide. Not always, that’s true, but reinforcing the carbon with a bit of a kevlar makes miracles.
Carbonin brand was soon recognized by professional racing teams from all around Europe, while our products are now present in more than 50 countries across the globe. FIM World Superbike, World Endurance, 300 Supersport, 600 and 1000 Superstock, AMA Moto America, plus various national and regional championships … You name it. MotoGP? No, … not yet.
As a father of two kids and owner of a company, I don’t race anymore. Which doesn’t mean our team doesn’t compete! Making sure Carbonin avio and carbon fiber parts keep the world’s leading quality in the motorcycle world and other industries, where lightweight, perfect fit, and premium look is required, is a race of its own.
It’s YOU, dear racer, who benefits from the whole story now. YOUR bike is craving Carbonin parts. Carbonin – it fits; your bike and your needs.
Personally and the whole dedicated team is happy that you chose Carbonin to make your lighter, faster, and looking fantastic. Enjoy – in your garage and on the track!
