..... it's so light and even quite cheap
Hmmm...do we have to raise prices? I do not read the word "cheap" in this forum very often....
..... only the white color is not so pretty IMHO..... will we see a black one in 2005?
The LW disk is one of the very few disks with a paint on it on the market. Most disks are black (carbon) because they are made from exactly this.
Some amongst you might already know that we use a very unique technique to build the disks. The LW disk is a carbon sandwich where carbon rowings are wrapped around a foam core. Only the lines of stress are from Carbon, not the rest. This makes it so light. (sorry, my English may not be good enough for a perfect explanation...).
The foam is white, the rowings are black. The white paint never really could hide that a LW disk in "natural" looks like a spoked wheel (you may look at some pics).
AND: The paint adds weight and is really useless for the performance of the disk.
Conclusion: We will not paint the disks in the future. It saves some significant weight and lacks no function. LW disks will be looking absolutely unique: Black "spokes" on a white background.
If you search for "nice" carbon weave looks, you´ll have to buy something else in the future.
By the way I find it really cool te get info like this from the people who actually make WW stuff, like Carbonsports and Ted Ciamillo...... keep us informed please
I will do as long as you people want me to. I also will try to give information without advertising our products............... If you let me.............
