A Belt With StyleFunctionality

 

The CARBON6™ is the ultimate go-to belt for every occasion. Designed with a clean, sleek look, it's the only belt with no holes, no flap and no bulk. It’s extremely comfortable, low profile and lightweight. Made from premium carbon fiber and a custom engineered webbing, it was built to last forever and look awesome along the way. It’s completely adjustable and never slips. And frequent flyers celebrate! You can wear it right through airport security. 

Our Story: We like belts and wear them everyday, but finding a belt that both fits well and looks good is often problematic. Between the unused holes, the long, leftover belt flap hanging off the side and the awkward bulge under your shirt, regular belts don't cut it. We just wanted something simple, low profile and clean with no holes and no belt flap. We wanted a belt that held tight and didn't bulge under our shirt. So we designed a better belt.

CARBON6™ Design: Style

Minimal, Beautiful Design: The CARBON6™ belt was designed with style in mind. We are minimalists and wanted something simple and effective. Our goal was to get rid of holes, flaps and bulk. We spent months refining our designs and prototypes until we got it right. The end result is a beautifully designed, patent pending belt with no flap, no holes and no bulk.

Premium Materials: We love high-quality, long-lasting products so we selected and tested only the best materials we could find.

The Buckle - The CARBON6™ buckle is precision CNC machined from a 9-layered, premium grade, carbon fiber composite. Carbon fiber is the material of the future. It is used in race-cars, military, aerospace and rockets. It is lighter and stronger than high performance metals.

The Strap - The webbing has been engineered and custom designed by a 100+ year old manufacturing facility in Rhode Island. It boasts a breaking strength of 2000 pounds and provides a stunning, high quality look that is perfect from casual to formal. The strap is 1.5 inches wide.

Style Guide: The CARBON6™ is as versatile as it is functional. Excellent for high-adventure outings, chilling with your friends or fancy shmancy business meetings.

Other Belts: Most "carbon fiber" belts fall into two categories: 1) cheap look-a-likes with fake carbon fiber and 2) real carbon fiber belts that are excessively expensive and cost hundreds of dollars. We wanted to offer a high quality, fully functional carbon fiber belt with a reasonable price point.

CARBON6™ Design: Functionality

Ultra Functional: We love the clean, high quality look of the CARBON6™ Belt, but looks aren't enough. We engineered the crap out of this thing so it would stand above the crowd with it's functionality.

Doesn't Slip: The patent pending belt design does NOT slip. Most friction belts need to be re-tightened throughout the day, but the CARBON6™ belt holds tight all day long.

TSA Compliant: With the CARBON6™, you'll never have to take your belt off at the airport. Because it's metal free, the belt passes right through security checkpoints undetected. 

Lightweight: Weighing mere 2 oz., the CARBON6™ is one of the lightest belts available making it a perfect backpacking belt.

Ultra Comfortable: The CARBON6™ is so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing it. The lightweight, high performance materials produce an almost weightless feel and the friction lock gives complete adjustability so you never get stuck between belt holes again. Combine that with the fact that there are no moving parts, and the buckle is curved and low profile and you get the most comfortable belt ever!

Durable: This high performance carbon fiber composite is no stranger to rigorous tasks. It was engineered to be nearly indestructible. We promise the belt will last as long as you will.

How It Works

The patent pending belt design is deceivingly simple. Just tuck the belt flap under the buckle. Done. It will hold tight all day and never slip. The simple design makes it easy to put it on and take it off.

Risks and challenges

We've earned a few bumps and bruises going through the manufacturing/kickstarter process. We've experienced the delays, pitfalls and complications with producing products. We actually do a lot of our own production and fulfillment simply because we can do it faster and cheaper than most places.
In our experience, the biggest challenges for a project like this are the lengthy lead times for production when using other companies. Even with relatively large orders, a new, small company (like us) gets put on the back-burner. We've done our best to develop good working relationships with the companies we are using and we've put realistic delivery times in place.
There will certainly be plenty challenges along the way, but we've got some excellent problem solving skills and an iron will. You can trust that we'll do our very best and you'll be happy with the end product.
