X-sports is set to introduce a new carbon fibre frame to replace the current aluminium one it has used in its carbon fiber racing cars for more than two decades.
X-sports will unveil the new frame on Tuesday at the first X-Finity race in Melbourne, with its first road race on Saturday night.
The new carbon frame will be available in both aluminium and carbon fiber versions.
It will also offer a range of lightweight options such as a carbon seat, carbon floor and carbon exhaust pipes.
“We are taking a step forward with our carbon frames, as they are a much more advanced frame than the previous ones we’ve used in our racing cars,” X-Sports racing director Andrew Tulloch said.
With the X-finity series set to go to a single round, the company will not be running the same bikes all the time, which means the new frames will need to be used to race.
We are going to be using the same racing cars that we’ve raced before for many years, so we’re taking advantage of the carbon fibre for a longer period of time, he said.
“The carbon frames have really given X-Sport the confidence to run these race bikes, and the carbon frames are going forward with the new X-Series cars.”
We’re taking it to the next level.
“Xsport will not go back to the old carbon frame for its road races.
Instead, the new carbon frames will be used in a series of road races for X-Sports’ road cars.
In 2017, X-Force won three series titles at the Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide, including the Australian Superbike Championship.
A number of the teams racing under X-Motorsports brand have raced with the carbon frame, including reigning World Superbike champion Josh Childress, who raced the carbon bike in 2017, and Lance Graham, who won the World Supercross title last year with the aluminium frame.
But the carbon and aluminium bikes have been plagued by crashes, including in 2017 when X-speed collided with a rear tyre.
This year, Xsport has been testing its carbon frames at the same track as its road racing, where they are currently racing.
And the carbon bikes will also have to deal with the same problems as their road racing counterparts.
Last year, there were six serious incidents involving the carbon X-series bikes.
Two of those were in the first race of the season, when a rear suspension failure killed the race winner James Hinchcliffe.
Hinchcliffe was wearing carbon frame parts for his X-Moto bike, and had to be flown to the hospital for further tests.
Another crash occurred when an X-Speed racer crashed into the wall on a straight.
There were also several incidents involving carbon bikes on track, including a crash in 2017 at the MCG.
During the 2017 season, XSport suffered the loss of two of its four championship wins at the World Supersport Series.
All six of the major crashes involved carbon Xsports bikes, including two in 2017.
While there were fewer incidents involving Xspsports carbon frames last year, the race at the Gabba caused a minor injury for a rider.
After the incident, the Xspar racing team said it would be replacing its carbon frame with carbon and carbon fibre parts for its new carbon race bikes.
The Gabba race was also the first time that Xsporters carbon X cars had been raced.
One of the main reasons Xsperts carbon X bikes have won races is due to their ability to withstand more crashes, the team said.
While it’s hoped the carbon-fiber Xsors will still be used for road racing in the future, the carbon race bike was used at the Melbourne race and it’s believed the race will be its last.
Australian Superbike rider Jamie Whincup had to take a medical leave after crashing in the 2017 Gabba GTR race.”
I’m hoping that I can be back on track in a few days.” “
The race at Gabba was just a test for us, we’re looking forward to that.
I’m hoping that I can be back on track in a few days.”
The Australian Superbikes team has been using carbon frames for years, with the last time they raced a carbon bike was at the 2012 Suzuka round, where the first carbon bike won the championship.
Australia’s first Superbike World Series race in 2013 saw two of the top four Australian riders take the championship title with carbon frames.
At the 2016 Adelaide Grand Prix, the top three riders in the championship took home the title with their carbon frames and the podium was won by the two carbon bikes.
