Wrapped Carbon Tubes

Wrapped round carbon tubes are created by wrapping resin pre-impregnated cloth strips around a mandrel and then curing the tube. The result is a highly specific and customizable tube that is lightweight and strong. These tubes are created in small batches, can be tapered, and have an endless variety of lengths and thicknesses. Our stock wrapped carbon tubes are available tapered or straight and are frequently used in kiting, RC hobbies, and in high-tech scientific equipment. Goodwinds can custom roll-wrap just about any carbon tube under 1 inch in diameter. We specialize in small batches, so give us a call at 206-632-6151 and tell us about your project!

  • G-Force Tubes

    G-Force Tubes --

    G-Force Tapered Tubes are a tapered wrapped carbon tube created as a variable-flex spar. This means that the flex, stiffness, and strength at any given point along the tube is different than the flex at another point along the tube. The advantage to this is strength and stiffness close to the cantilever point and lightness and flexibility on the other end.

    G-Force are straight wrapped carbon tubes created for the kiting market but also used in hobby and industry. G-Force Tubes have a better stiffness-to-weight ratio than pultruded carbon tubes.

  • Sky Shark Tubes

    Sky Shark Tubes --

    Sky Shark P Series Tubes are lightweight wrapped carbon tubes with a brushed, matte finish. Sky Shark P Series Tubes are non-tapered and can be cut anywhere along the straight carbon tube and ferruled. P-Series wrapped carbon tubes are designed to be joined with PT Series tapered tubes using an internal carbon ferrule. Sky Shark P Series Tubes are commonly used as framing for high-end sport kites.

    Sky Shark PT Series Tubes are tapered wrapped carbon tubes –one end of the tube is larger in diameter than the other. Designed to be ferruled with other Sky Shark Tubes, the PT Series wrapped carbon tubes all have an inner diameter of .244 inches at the large end. These tapered carbon tubes are primarily used for sport kites, RC gliders, and helicopters.

  • Tail Booms & Sail Masts

    Tail Booms & Sail Masts --

    G-Force Tail Booms are a larger diameter version of the G-Force Tapered Wrapped Carbon Tubes specifically created for gliders and RC Helicoptors.

    Sky Shark has created two RC Sailboat Masts to fit the Victoria RC Sailboat class and others using the same specifications. The XLS Sail Mast is a straight wrapped carbon tube, while the XLT Sail Mast is a tapered wrapped carbon tube.
