At Kismet, we have been hands on working with composite materials since the early 90s. Developing our understanding of stresses and loads in detail across many applications including cycling, military, aviation, aquatic and motorsports.
Years of honing and perfecting our techniques has allowed us to write the bible of carbon-fibre compliance. We can orientate our bikes to take pressures, strains and loads that are hyper specific to our clients requirements.
We work by the words of Will Durant when he eloquently summarised a collection of Aristotle's thoughts on morality: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." By exclusively working with carbon-fibre here at Kismet, we have developed an inside-out understanding of this material.
Our knowledge of carbon-fibre construction is advanced to the level that we have the ability to repair damage. Operating a carbon-fibre repair service for the past 7 years has provided an even deeper understanding of the limits and potential of carbon-fibre.
This also provides our clients the peace of mind knowing that if they damage their Kismet Bike in any way then we can inspect, and in most cases fix their frame to an 'as new' state.
LOCATION: MOIRA, DERBYSHIRE
Our headquarters are located right next to the recently refurbished and revamped Moira Furnace on the Coventry-Ashby canal, which was originally built in 1804 by the Earl of Moira. Surrounded by an abundance of awe-inspiring natural beauty and history, long gone are the days of the industrial revolution.
The modern-day physical presence of the furnace is a creatively stimulating reminder of how the revolutions significance and impact can be seen throughout our day to day work. Our site location is also very practical for business, being placed just a few miles away from the geographical centre of England has many logistical and client accessible benefits.
