With Jeffrey Buis, a member of MTM Kawasaki Motoport team, winning the 2020 World Supersport 300 class on a Carbonin-equipped Kawasaki Ninja 400, this is the first ever World title for a Slovenia-based carbon and avio fibre specialist.
Carbonin was involved in the world of roadracing since the beginning; it’s founder Peter Kuduz was a racer himself in a national and regional road racing championship when he found a lack of quality parts for his race bike: they just didn’t fit! That pushed him to start making his own bike parts.
The quality and perfect fitting of early Carbonin’s avio fibre and carbon fibre products was quickly recognised by racing teams in Europe and worldwide, and riders were winning individual races in many championships and cups (WSBK, BSB, EWC, IDM,…), but there hasn’t been any World Championship won until 18th of October 2020 when Jeffrey Buis (MTM Kawasaki Motoport) secured the WorldSSP300 title in the final race of the season in Estoril, Portugal.
Peter Kuduz, Carbonin CEO: “Partnership with MTM Kawasaki Motoport team is relatively young, we started cooperating in late 2019, but the team had a big impact on the development of the race fairings for the new Ninja 400. During winter we’ve been working together to develop an optimal race body, their comments and demands were crucial for making a product that we can be proud of and a product that is helping fantastic riders to win races. Besides our well recognized first-class quality we’ve improved aerodynamics to reduce the turbulences around the seat unit, increased cooling of the radiator and the engine and enabled more directed airflow towards the air-box which all resulted in better engine performance. I want to congratulate the talented young racer Jeffrey Buis, the team manager Mr. Ludo van der Veken and everyone else from the MTM Kawasaki Motoport team for a fantastic season.”
Ludo van der Veken, MTM Kawasaki Motoport team manager: “We’re very satisfied with cooperation we have with Carbonin. Their high quality products are what we need in our team. The bikes were in perfect shape this year. All our riders were winning races and we won the Team Championship and a World Championship title with Jeffrey Buis, so it was a fantastic season. All our great partners made this happen. Also Carbonin was part of it and we’re proud of that!”
