Manufacturing

Hand-crafted high tech


Whether high-tech bicycles or high-quality components for Formula 1: The quality and unique character of these parts are primarily influenced by a unique, highly advanced manufacturing process.


From the initial idea to the finished product – beginning with a skilled development department to the finished production component made of complex fibre composite materials – ax-lightness offers you everything under one roof.
No machine is capable of working as perfectly, precisely and reliably as the people who create the unique specimens from ax-lightness manufacturing. Nearly every part is hand crafted, with the aid of a few, hand-picked mechanical processes. And even during the final inspection at the end of the production process, we trust the eyes, ears and instincts of our experienced employees.

This is how we guarantee that our products are tailored to the special demands of our individual customers. This is how we bring out the best characteristics of any material. And this is how we satisfy the our customers' demanding requirements when it comes to exclusivity, precision, quality and design.
