For the past few years, Rocket Composites has been making an all carbon backpack frame for their customer KUIU, a maker of ultralight hunting gear.
Rocket also designed and manufactured their own tooling for the frame, and parts are made using a compression molding process.
A custom C-PLY™ triaxial
Working with Chomarat and Professor Tsai, Rocket Composites was able to redesign the backpack frame utilizing a custom triaxial C-PLY™ fabric that is 25% stronger with much better torsional stability compared to previous models made from traditional woven carbon fabrics.
- C-PLY™ makes a flatter and more stable part.
- It handles and cuts better than woven fabric and generates less waste
A strong, light and flexible backpack ensuring performance and comfort
