EXTREMELY LIGHT, EXTREMELY STABLE
Four layers of carbon fibre, epoxy resin, elaborate handiwork, autoclave technology: they all come together to produce the twin-wall, two-part, extremely lightweight, carbon monocoque, which is manufactured by composite-fibre specialist Wethje in Germany. The result is a carbon-fibre construction that provides the highest levels of safety, but only weighs 80 kilogrammes – with an unbelievably high torsional stiffness of 35,000 Nm/o. Alongside the safety factor, the monocoque can provide a further decisive advantage in racing use: Damage can be repaired in next to no time and very inexpensively.
The KTM X-BOW is the first production vehicle to boast a monocoque made completely from composite carbon fibre material – a trailblazing and pioneering technology, previously reserved exclusively for racing vehicles.
