Carbon contraptions + Resin X = Woa!



Matt Campbell of C3d industries/Resin X came out to the factory for a few days to work one some new things with us along with trying a few new tweaks to his unbelievable product.

This is one of those projects we worked on. The shape was an old shape from last year sitting and waiting for a miracle. I dusted it off and gave it a few tweaks. As far as glassing schedules, we used a 6oz/carbon laced bottom with a 4.Xoz full carbon deck + 4oz E glass, a pretty solid construction and stiff flex pattern.

This was a great experiment since we already know how good the flex charactersitics are on a board glassed with standard E/Warp/S cloth boards and Resin X. Carbon fiber as you know is a very stiff but strong product when used with epoxy..... surprisingly with Resin X, the Carbon acts much differently than what I thought, its stiff but positive stiff and still strong. You can stand on this thing on the floor and have the deck not touch the ground.

The positive "stiff" flex is very different than anything I've ridden. Its something I cant put into words.. it just gives me a big smile when you lay this thing on rail....

This board is available to Demo if you are around our area. Be awake since this is a protoype Its not the prettiest thing in the word. We will be doing some more of this and see how people liek them... Keep checking in on updates about this construction!

Thanks for the good times Ian. I am really glad to see you Russel have a good size factory and room for growth. I like how you guys are keeping it's were abouts a secret too. Thanks for being a valued resin-X customer. Carbon is so different with Resin-X than epoxy.
