Carbon Fiber Aero Performance parts—hood, frame, trim, fenders, etc.—is an aesthetic, aerodynamic performance enhancement.
Carbon Fiber Aero Performance
Do you really need carbon fiber aero performance parts on your vehicle?
The majority of carbon fiber aero parts that RW Carbon carries actually add real aerodynamic characteristics to your car. Some parts like trunk lid spoilers and front lip spoilers can even increase the amount of drag that is applied to the car.
What kind of carbon fiber aero performance parts can you install on your vehicle?
We've got basic aero trim kits made from carbon fiber such as the Carbon Creations Body Kit (front bumper cover, rear add-on bumper cover extensions, side skirt, rear wing), the APR Performance Aerodynamic Kit (4 pieces), and the 12-piece Aero Function Body Kit with more aggressive-looking "wide body" bumper covers, side skirts, fender flares, and door caps. While most components in the kit are carbon fiber, minor bits may be made from urethane.
Why is carbon fiber called the material of the future?
Carbon Fiber, more accurately known as carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, is a polymer-like epoxy that's strengthened by actual carbon fibers. Those carbon fibers are constructed from carbon atoms bonded together in crystals that align parallel to the long axis of the fiber - an alignment that makes the end result very strong for its size and weight. And as you might guess, carbon fiber gains its distinctive appearance because the fibers are woven into the polymer "fabric".
