SCHMOLKE can do carbon! We have been working with carbon fibers for 30 years, turning them into ultra-light and robust carbon components. True to our claim: #everygramcounts! We are constantly optimizing our products, developing new and lighter components and complete wheels from this high-tech material.

We call it Natural Beauty! Many of our carbon components are unpainted. On the one hand, this reduces the weight – because less grams means more performance – and on the other hand, the processed carbon fibers are clearly visible. Without paint, the smallest visual defects are immediately visible. Only perfectly processed components pass our strict quality criteria and are offered in our online shop. The quality and composition of the carbon fibers also plays an important role. Learn more about material, texture and our processing.
