Corima Chrono Bike Wheels With Hexcel’s Carbon Fiber Prepregs A Tour De Force At The Tour De France

july 30 2012

Hexcel customer CORIMA, a leader in the manufacture of carbon fiber bike wheels for road racing, was one of the major technology players in this year’s Tour de France, supplying the ASTANA and SOJASUN teams. We were delighted to see Corima’s CHRONO wheels, made with Hexcel’s HexPly prepregs and Primetex 12K carbon fiber reinforcements, performing so well on the Tour de France roads.

Hexcel’s PrimeTex technology allows light fabrics to be woven from higher K tow fibers (with weights as low as 200gsm possible using 12K fiber) while maintaining perfect quality and uniformity of reinforcement.

The HexPly range of industrial resins enables the twin objectives of “industrial processability” (competitive and efficient cure cycles) and high performance to be achieved, meeting the high demands to which a wheel is subjected during the Tour de France challenge.
