Carbon fiber panels

Advanced carbon-fiber construction helps the ELF lead the way in 21 st-century transportation. The weight savings of carbon fiber panels increase the ELFs range while offering stability improvements: carbon fiber is 10 times stronger than steel. It is preferred in aviation and aerospace for the same reasons we use it: ultra-light weight, rigidity, and durability. Our carbon-fiber panels are vacuum infused with polyester resin for UV-protection and weather-resistance. A special blend of aluminum-coated fibers and carbon-fibers allows us to offer carbon-fiber panels in a variety of colors.

NuVinci© N360This gear-hub represents a tremendous leap forward in power-management and ease of use. The N360 uses a continuously variable planetary drivetrain, meaning that it does not have gears in the traditional sense. Instead, the N360 operates completely smoothly without the jerking associated with outdated drivetrains. While taking advantage of recent improvements in manufacturing, the NuVinci© concept is based on concepts developed by Leonardo DaVinci, grandfather of design. It couldn’t be simpler to operate; just twist the low-resistance shifter. Like our other gear-hubs, the N360 is completely self-contained and maintenance free.
