Forte manufactures using a 4-Axis Continuous Fiber Braiding Technology to produce a light and extremely strong part. Forte's process yields a stronger and much more durable (impact resistant) part than a typical "rolled" or "laid-up" carbon fiber part because a braided part has continuous fiber strands and no seams to delaminate. Forte is also able to engineer the orientation of each strand of carbon to create strength and flexibility as necessary.
