The use of highly sophisticated materials such as Carbon, Kevlar® and glass is sometimes not enough to guarantee special performances. This is why X-Lite has carried out constant research and experiments to create new fabrics where the single materials are combined in predetermined quantity and patterns, which are to ensure the best results during the various working stages of the outer shell. This ensures the best results during the various working stages of the outer shell, and gives a balance between shell lightness and shock resistance. The painting stage is a combined automatic and manual process, assuring a high quality standard for surface finishing. The shells have the various colours applied in automated phases, and the graphics are applied manually.
