X-JOINT TECHNOLOGY Thanks to the use of multi-axial carbon sheets, the X-Joint allow to obtain perfect action curves, absorbing all the torsions to which the blank is subjected, increasing the structural resistance and the response to stresses. X-Joint is therefore able not only to improve the section’s links, but rather assist the whole structure for maximum performance. Definitely the best joints ever made!
• Perfect curve, without dead spots. • Higher structural strength, because stress is dispersed through the blank, instead of being concentrated on joint’s ends. • Unique coexistence of flexibility and stiffness. • Less oscillations at the end of casting, which means quicker re-alignment of guides. Within X-Joint by Trabucco, the carbon cloth is wound by two directions, and such construction is visible on top end of each section.
45° REINFORCEMENT (X-JOINT)
• Stress is concentrated at both ends • Dead spots, risk of breakage
• Stress is dispersed along the blank • Perfect curve, no breakage risk

X-JOINT ± 45° CARBON TECHNOLOGY
+ The carbon fibers oriented along the longitudinal rod’s axis (0° unidirectional carbon) provide great resistance to linear traction.
+ The carbon fibers oriented at 90° to longitudinal rod’s axis enable the cross section to resist the compression caused by strong flexion.
The X-Joint carbon fibers, oriented at ±45° to rod’s axis, are able to absorb and disperse the torque, improving the joint’s performance and saving the rest of the section.
