Rock West Composites expands carbon frame part offerings

Published October 13, 2017

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (BRAIN) — Carbon frame tubing supplier Rock West Composites has tripled its product offering of frame tubes and related parts, the company said.

RWC's carbon fiber tubing products include head and seat tubes with steerer tubes and seat posts, top and down tubes, chain and seat stays, and bottom bracket shells. The company said it offers one-stop shopping for frame builders, also offering aero tubing, pre-preg materials, fabrics, resin systems and bonding agents.

"As the composites industry has become more mainstream, carbon fiber products have become more affordable for smaller frame builders as well as for the average consumer," said Dave Erickson, the vice president and general manager of RWC's Utah facility. "We wanted to expand our standard carbon fiber product lines with tubing specifically engineered and sized to meet the demands of the carbon bicycle frame market. We have cyclists in-house with extensive industry experience, so this not only grows our marketspace, but adds to the team's work gratification." 

RWC provides composite products for variety of markets and customers. It offers custom products and services, such as product development, engineering services, prototyping, and manufacturing. Manufactured processes include filament winding, roll wrap, resin infusion, bladder molding, and modified closed mold processes. The company has facilities in San Diego and Salt Lake City, Utah.
