A lighter case

Based on this new concept, the «DANI PEDROSA CARBON», sober and elegant at once, sculpted by the latest technology, generated by different stages of vacuum castings, where the nano fibers are arranged randomly, according to a specific mix, composed of carbon nano-fibers (black) and colored orange REPSOL glass fibers and a binder made of epoxy resins.

Fabrication Process

An autoclave oven at controlled temperature and atmosphere induces a vacuum, to remove all forms of air bubbles from the mold, either in the resin mixture, as in layering of the fibers, to obtain, a homogeneous and compact mass of material, obtained after processing through the cooking process. At the end of each batch, all the pieces have their own aesthetic comparable to fingerprints in humans ... we'd be pushed to tell as each piece is UNIQUE!!!

Inspired and captivated by the philosophy of the Samurai warrior, Dani Pedrosa has chosen to make it his logo at the age of 13, early in his career. He was the youngest driver in the circuit, and it was then that he decided to add a pacifier to the paraphernalia of his Samurai warrior. The latter represents the image of the child in every one of us, and helps to recall the beginnings of the pilot and his own passion for this sport.
