Celtibero high performance racing parts

That the Olimunllum® race products do also look unique is not a coincidence. Real performance seldom looks wrong.

Olimunllum® is the sum of the proven high performance fibre and the probably most preciously engineered plastic of our time. The result is the high tenacity of the reinforcing fibers paired with the strenght, excellent impact, creep and temperature resistance of the polymer, that makes Olimunllum® our choice for dynamic structural parts -like engine mounts-, wear resistant components -like chain wheels-, and heat resistance products -like our exhaust systems-.

Olimunllum® also exhibits a damping characteristic unseen in classic composites, which significantly reduces vibrations. Add chemical and corrosion resistance, as well as 250°C continuous use temperature, and see Olimunllum® components adapted for the use in the most arduous environment.

Main material characteristics

- minimum weight (1/3 of Titanium, 1/5 of Steel)
- very high strength
- excellent impact strength and creep resistance
- high damping (less vibrations) > 15% higher than conventional carbon fibre composites
- high chemical, corrosion and temperature resistance (250°C continuous use)

Flattrack training day with Randy Krummenacher @ MSC Mühldorf

"This bike feels at home on the big track, and really amazing how quick Randy found his pace already on the 2nd round."

Celtibero Racing Components Team ready to line up for the first run at the UK Shorttrack Champioship 2011. See you in Oxford!

After hard and meticulous mechanical work rebuilding the base bike, engineering and tests on our low inertia Celtibero Racing Components, comings and goings from test bench to test bench, from test track to workshop and back to make sure our parts work out as good as we target, this along with lots of great support from friends and family (thanks Jan-Willem for the beautiful head work), we can't wait any longer and go now racing.

Upper engine mounts made of Olimunllum®

If you love riding like we do, you know how hard the waiting can be until you fire up the engine, select first gear and start rolling. Finnaly ready for the track! Last week we went to Jacopo's and Ulde's beautifully shaped and very technical training track in Novara, Northwest Italy, for a first real roll out. Jacopo, very fit and critical as I have never seen him before, welcomes the great power at high revs, the ability to pull the gears over 10'000 engine rpm and the light and nimble frame. He starts tighting corner lines and sliding as deep as he points, which looks like a game when you watch from the wall, scares you when you observe it close at the corner entry, and don't believe when you see it on pictures.

And here a back view!

Thankfully, little issues came up, like a fuel-tank cracke, a leak in one fork, and wrong mounting clearances between our own silencer and the swingarm, but, hey! we didn't even had to make a single adjustment on the suspension.

So now, 2 further crazy days sorting last details, organizing logistics, (like always, we are later than late on that) then entering the real life: The round 1 of the 2011 POZZANI GRAND NATIONAL UK CHAMPIONSHIP.

Our goal for this Friday in Oxford: see Jacopo challenging the best shorttrack riders in europe, UK's number 1 Aidan Collins, number 2 Tom Wooley, 2009 Champion Peter Boast, Les Collins, Eddy Kenneth, Steve Plater, and guest riders like Dave Alana (USA), Tyson Nelson (aus) and many more, and see all souls involved in our quest with a big sincere smile in their faces. Monti’s unmistakable style will be, in any case, a guarantee for that smile.

Good job guys!

Stay tuned and follow us if don’t want to miss it!
