L.I.T.E. Series Shafts

L.I.T.E. Series Carbon Fiber

The EMT L.I.T.E. Series air shafts and mandrels represent a new generation in carbon fiber construction. Features include:

  • Light in weight
  • Integrity of structure
  • Technologically advanced
  • Engineered to Last

Custom-designed to fit your unique needs, our L.I.T.E. Series air shafts and mandrels are roll-wrapped with precision ribbons of prepreg, a highly controlled process that assures uniformity of resin-to-fiber content, while eliminating strength-robbing voids common in conventional shafts that are wet wound.

While other brands of shafts have interspersed layers of fiberglass—a cost-cutting practice that significantly lowers strength and rigidity—only EMT International gives customers the weight-saving advantage of a composite body without compromise, plus EMT’s quality and exclusive design features.
