Inspection & Assessment

Carbon fiber bicycles have come a long way since their inception in 1971. Initially, carbon bikes were reserved for a select few, but today, they are more accessible than ever. Despite challenges like supply shortages and distribution costs, carbon fiber remains a revolutionary material with unparalleled strength-to-weight ratios. When crafted with precision, carbon bicycles can last for decades, offering both performance and durability..

However, the story changes when carbon fiber craftsmanship falters. Poorly manufactured carbon frames may contain hidden vulnerabilities, such as voids or gaps within the structure, which can weaken the frame over time. Voids can ultimately lead to cracking which can then lead to failure. These imperfections often lurk beneath the surface, invisible to the naked eye. Additionally, the impact damage caused by blunt force is not readily apparent, and even when it is visible, its full extent may remain unknown

To uncover these hidden flaws and ensure the safety of carbon bicycles, we employ cutting-edge Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspection methods, specifically Ultrasound Testing (UT). UT allows us to determine the exact point, depth, size, and shape of hidden anomalies within the carbon structure, such as voids and/or cracks.
