In addition to quality improvements to their high end carbon fibre gangways, Exit Engineering is introducing two new carbon fibre steering wheels.
A 170 cm model goes to fill the gap between the existing 3 spoke 160 cm wheel and the big, 7 spoke, 180 cm model. This last one is in turn going to be substituted by a 3 spoke model of the same size, to present a uniform brand image and to make available also on this size the advantages of the new 3 spoke architecture.
Both new models will be ready for delivery by early July, with first deliveries of the 170 cm diameter wheel going to Dehler for installment on their 39SQ special series model.
The moulds have been built according to schedule and the first 170 cm prototype was tested and approved by mid June. Thanks to the experience gained by Exit Engineering from several years using its patented Continuous Shell construction Method, no major adjustments were needed by the new wheels before starting series production, which is already going on.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
Cobra International is celebrating its 40th year and has commissioned a book that will look at 40 key projects and 40 key people that were integral to the company’s growth. ‘Klaus Simmer and The King Cobra: A breakthrough in surfboard design and production technology’ is an extract article from this book and a breakthrough composites product for Cobra, establishing its presence as a manufacturer of high performance windsurf boards and creating global visibility for the Cobra brand.
