About this project
Carbon fiber is revolutionizing high performance sports, automotive, aerospace and prosthetics industries. Its lightweight high strength properties are giving athletes and astronauts alike the edge to push themselves to the limits and beyond.
NEW WIDE WIDTH!
We are offering our rings in the NEW WIDE width, as well as the narrow and standard width.
Choose Standard or Ultra Polish
We have two different polishes, standard and ultra. We polish all the rings by hand, but the ultra polish is polished five times longer than the standard polish. The longer ultra polish results is a smoother, softer edge finish that can be felt and visually seen under close inspection.

We are back! We started two years ago offering only size 10 rings. Since then we have expanded to offer sizes 5-14 and we are now excited to announce a new 10 mm width option!
We see beauty in performance and that’s why we are passionate about using carbon fiber as an artistic material. We are two brothers who grew up near Seattle and each came to know carbon fiber independently in our engineering careers. Jack studied carbon fiber while at graduate school, and now as a material scientist at a major aerospace company he builds elegant carbon fiber components. Patrick was introduced to the amazing advantages of carbon fiber while in graduate school and working at a research center in a hospital developing next generation prosthetic feet. Together we are now hoping to blend art with the high tech to bring you carbon fiber rings that are simple, elegant and unique.
We design and sculpt the carbon fiber rings partially in our homes by hand and partially using state of the art production manufacturing techniques. The rings start at an aerospace manufacturer with prepreg carbon fiber fabric that is "impregnated" with a two part curing liquid resin. We bevel each ring ourselves by hand. To produce the ultra polish rings we continue to sand and polish the edge of the ring to a rounded shape with a high polish. The edges then feel smooth and silky to the touch. We then do a cleaning and inspection on all the rings to ensure quality and perfection.
We already have a large batch of rings cut and we are currently sanding and polishing the edges. These rings will be finished and ready to ship shortly.
The profit we get from this fundraising project will go towards buying new equipment which will allow us to produce the new wider 10mm width rings. Our goal is to be able to share our enthusiasm for high performance jewelry with as many people as possible by making these carbon fiber rings.
We see beauty in performance, if you do too, support us and get your rings today!

Risks and challenges
There are always challenges in composite processing, most of these are related to product consistency. With our early prototypes we had some issues with wrinkles, porosity and surface finish, however, we have now solved these issues and are currently extremely confident in our manufacturing processes. Each ring is hand inspected at the final stage for quality. Based on our last Kickstarter campaign, about 98 out of 100 rings were perfect, the remaining 2 sometimes had small surface blemished and therefore got discarded.
Professional Fast Shipping!
We will ship the rings with a professional fulfillment company that can process thousands of orders in one day. This means you will get your rings faster without hassle.
100% satisfaction guaranteed!
If you don't receive your ring or are unhappy with it in any way just let us know and we will immediately ship you a new one. We are committed to making our backers happy!
Carbon fiber is an extremely lightweight and strong composite material. It is used for the highest performing aerospace, automotive, and sporting good products. These products all need to be both extremely lightweight but still strong. Carbon fiber is a combination of an epoxy thermoplastic resin and pure carbon fibers.
Many reasons! For one, they look unique and elegant, but you are also showing that you are part of a club of enthusiasts that understand the brilliance and beauty of this amazing high performance material.
The men's style size 10 ring only weighs one gram!
Unfortunately, we currently only have whole sizes.
Yes the rings are made completely in the US. We personally polish and inspect every ring ourselves by hand in our home town of Seattle, Washington to ensure the highest level of quality.
The narrow width is 0.20in (5mm) wide, the standard width is 0.25in (6.3mm) wide, the wide width is 0.39" (10mm) wide. All the rings are 0.065in (1.65mm) thick. The sizing follows standard US ring sizes.
Yes, and there will be no additional shipping charges (compared to domestic shipping).
How can your rings cost so much less but yet be higher quality than the other solid carbon fiber rings on the market?
We are a two man business and we have very low overhead, but we also believe everyone should get to experience the amazement of carbon fiber. As for the quality, we have over ten years of experience in aerospace composite processing and pride ourselves in perfection.
Yes, as these rings are made from actual carbon fiber epoxy and it can be scratched like any composite material. So you should either avoid contact with abrasive surface like rocks or wear those scratches with pride as you summit your next mountain!
You can determine your ring size using this online tool.
Or you can go to the jeweler and have them size your finger.
Back for one level but them when you go to enter the pledge amount add the amount of the second reward level to the amount you originally chose. Then when we send out the survey at the end we will ask if you backed for multiple rings and you can indicate the size and styles of all the rings you backed for. Feel free to message us if you have any questions.
Narrow width in size 5 to 13 in whole sizes only.
Standard width in size 6 to 14 in whole sizes only.
Wide width in size 5 to 14 in whole size only.
