Caron Fibre makes your bike more rough and tough.

There are several different styles of mountain biking, usually defined by the terrain, and therefore bikes employed. Styles of mountain bike riding and mountain bikes have evolved rapidly in recent years leading to terms such as Free ride and “Trail bike” being used to categorise mountain bikes.
Carbon fibre composites currently offer the best weight, stiffness, durability and ease of use parameters out of all other materials available for bicycle component manufacture. Composite literally means made of several materials – in this case carbon fibres, and resin. This means that in order to achieve optimal stiffness at any part of the frame, once the basic shape requirements are met, all that is needed is to improve the carbon fibre layup and the manufacturing process used.
Virtually all carbon fibre bicycle component manufacturing for various bike brands occurs in China and Taiwan by one, or several carbon fibre component factories. The factories employ material and composites engineers who research and implement the ideas and proposed solutions of the bike brands. Velocity carbon fibre components, frames and rims are also made in China and Taiwan, but almost uniquely, they are made by the same company meaning that we preserve all the knowledge and fine tuning that we accumulate over time across our entire carbon fibre frame and rim range.
Bicycle components, specifically bike frames are made using various grades of carbon fibre characterized mainly by their tensile strength and tensile modulus. Tensile strength is the amount of force needed to cause the fibres to break, while the tensile modulus is a measure of the carbon fibre’s stiffness. Most new mountain bikes use disc brakes. They offer much improved stopping power (less lever pressure is required providing greater braking modulation) over rim brakes under all conditions especially adverse conditions, because they are located at the centre of the wheel (on the wheel hub). They therefore remain drier and cleaner than wheel rims, which are more readily soiled or damaged. The disadvantage of disc brakes is their increased cost and often greater weight.
