what is 'forged' carbon fiber?
Unlike typical carbon fiber, forged carbon fiber is created using a different process, involving heat and pressure. What results is a much more 'organic' marbled texture that we've come to love the material for. Of course there are more benefits to it than that.
Forged carbon fiber is . . .
LIGHTWEIGHT & COMFORTABLE
One of the first things that someone notices when holding carbon fiber is how light it is. In the case of sports cars and spacecraft, this allows each to travel faster and burn less fuel in one stroke. In a carbon fiber ring, it's so incredibly lightweight that you'll hardly know it's on your finger- making it incredibly comfortable.
STRONG & SAFE
On top of being significantly lighter, the strongest carbon fibers are 10 times stronger than steel. The benefits are clear when justifying building spacecraft and fast cars, are ever more apparent when it comes to rings. Unlike metallic rings which will simply bend when under pressure, carbon fiber simply shatters, likely saving you a finger and a trip to the hospital.
As stated before, your really can't beat that beautiful marbled texture of forged carbon fiber. The material absolutely brings itself out in the sunlight, being exceptionally refractory in nature. Of course, we feel that the traditional 'checkerboard' carbon fiber is simply nowhere near as elegant, and a clear reason why forged is the way to go. Of course, don't just take our word for it. Try it out yourself!
