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.
Applications for composites in the sports and leisure sector will be showcased by various exhibitors at Composites Europe in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November.
The programme has been announced for the second Composites in Sport Conference and Exhibition, being held at Loughborough University, UK, on 3-4 October 2018.
