Here’s a few words from the guys at Swift Carbon on their brand, philosphy and love of bikes. C3 Products is proud to be the exclusive UK distributor of Swift Carbon.
Swift Carbon is a new species of bike brand, born of a genuine love and passion for cycling. We are not bred on the heritage of a place nor a person.
We are a new, fresh brand and we are pioneering a smarter model for developing and delivering the highest quality carbon fiber cycling product. Our philosophy is to tap into the best global talent in design, engineering and manufacturing to deliver the highest caliber bikes at rational prices.
SwiftCarbon is the concept of ex-professional cyclist Mark Blewett. Mark won’t be remembered for his winning the Tour de France, although he notched up some impressive results against the likes of Ullrich, Hamilton, and Jalabert on the international circuit in the early 90’s. Instead his place in history will be remembered for his role as a leader and pioneer. Mark was the captain of the South African national road team, which was the first South African team of any sport to compete outside of sanctions in 1991. He went onto to be one of the first South African pro’s riding on European teams in the early 90’s.
SwiftCarbon is pioneering a new business model. With 96% of the world’s carbon fiber bikes produced in Asia, it made sense to base our selves here. Mark lives and breathes SwiftCarbon, moving between SwiftCarbon HQ, our OEM partner production facilities and the mountainous testing grounds that surround our production area. Mark and his team are personally involved with QC process of the products and test the gear right from prototype phase. He works face to face with engineers and designers on a daily basis.
We call our model the “SwiftCarbon Matrix Approach” and it allows us to develop bikes that punch well above their weight when compared to our competitor’s bikes. We stay lean, remain competitive and entrepreneurial. Being based in the epicenter of the carbon fiber manufacturing world, gives us unique access to the World’s best designers, engineers, processes and state of the art materials. We harness these talents to create unique project teams for our products. Our team has over 90 years of industry experience together and when this is combined with the bike handling knowledge and experience of an ex-pro we are able to create a line of amazing, race-bred bikes which have real soul and unmatched performance.
