FULLY LOADED

Construction of the vacuum infused, carbon monocoque continues on with loading the remaining fabric and core materials.


Core material applied to the sides makes the SKR's shell extremely stiff and as a bonus the core reduces interior noise levels.

The circular cut-outs in the core allow for maximum shoulder width.


Aluminum tapping plates laid out on a section of core to accept the mounting of rear suspension components and the rear power idler

All of the aluminum tapping plates are sandwiched between layers of E-glass.



 Strips of unidirectional carbon are added in the floor area of the nose to strengthen the edges of the foot-hole cut-outs.



 Integrated stringer-beam provides exceptional drive-line rigidity and strength.






Aluminum square tube rail for the sliding bottom bracket mounts to the top of the stringer-beam.






Rear power idler in situ.
