Carbon fiber

The items we sell are identical to the OEM parts (Aprilia, BMW, etc.) in terms of carbon finish, weave and color.
Upon request, we can customize these options and manufacture a different version.

The finish indicates how much light is reflected by the transparent coating that protects the carbon fiber, and can be:

Glossy
reflects the light completely, creating a mirror effect and making the bike shine
Matte
doesn’t reflect the light, giving the bike a modern and delicate look
The carbon weave defines the arrangement of the different carbon fibers, which are twisted at 90° into two possible combinations:

Plain
little squares, tied in a chessboard-like pattern
Twill
slightly bigger rectangles, interlaced in diagonal lines
On request we can manufacture the forged carbon (left) or high module (right) carbon weave:


Finally, the color of the carbon fiber can be black (standard), red, green, golden or silver:



Items with custom weave and finish can be ordered directly in their pages, selecting the desidered combinations (there’s a 10% surcharge), while colors other than black (30% surcharge) or forged carbon / high module carbon (both 30% surcharge) have to be ordered by contacting us.

All the parts not listed in our catalog can be manufactured on request, starting from the original item or its 3D draw, but the price is quite high because we have to cover the costs of creating the mould (hundreds of euros), besides those of making the part.

We recommend, as an alternative, the carbon coating of the original part: we apply a layer of carbon fiber (just a few millimeters thin) to the item, and the final result is identical to that of pure carbon fiber parts.
The price depends on the size and shape of the item; it starts from 200€ approx. for small sizes, and from 400€ for bigger parts.

If you want to proceed with an order, kindly send us the pictures and size of the item by mail: info@maxicarbon.com.
Our carbon fiber items replace or supplement the plastic or metal original parts of the motorbike. Fitting carbon accessories lets you customize every detail according to your own taste and style, and get a unique result through the use of a very valuable material.

Besides the attractive look, carbon fiber offers several advantages when compared to other materials: the high resistance to impacts, the thermal insulation, the lightness, the flexibility and the ability to maintain its features over time, even in adverse conditions, make it the perfect compromise between weight, durability, appearance and cost.
Every part undergoes a very elaborate, and mainly manual, manufacturing process. Extremely thin carbon threads are twisted (in twill or plain weave) on a textile called carbon fiber, and then glued with a very resistant epoxy resin to get the pre-preg carbon.

This material, structurally strong but still easy to manipulate – so it can be modeled into complex shapes, is then placed inside an aluminium mould and processed in CNC, starting from the 3D scan of the original part. The mould is then put in a vacuum bag and cured in an autoclave, where both the external and internal pressure, combined with the high temperature, solidify the fibers.

The result is cleaned out to remove possible imperfections, varnished with a transparent layer anti-UV, glossy or matte, to guarantee its durability in time, and finally cooked one last time to make the varnish dry.

The carbon fiber used is 3K plain 200g/mq for plain parts and 3K twill 245g/mq for twill parts.

This procedure is called “dry system“, because it makes use of the pre-preg carbon instead of filling the mold with resin. Compared to the wet system, the result is stronger, lighter and more resistant.
