The Way It Is Now

From elite athletes to enthusiastic amateurs, everyone strives for peak performance. Advanced materials such as carbon fiber can turn effort into excellence more efficiently — but manufacturing limitations make such products prohibitively expensive, and design constraints hold athletes back from achieving their full potential.

Where We Are Going

With ARRIS, it’s simple and cost-effective to create lighter, stronger consumer and sporting goods products using high-performance materials in new, stylish form-factors. Using carbon fiber, thermoplastics, and embedded electronics, designers can help athletes at all levels achieve their full potential. When every ounce, split second and that special feel makes a difference (and it needs to look good) you need ARRIS on your team.

Consumer Products Examples

ARRIS Consumer Products Composite Manufacturings | Shoe Plate
ARRIS' running shoe plate design leverages an advanced open-lattice structure to align continuous fiber where it’s needed most. Legacy composite footwear designs have been constrained by the simple geometries of constant-thickness sheet laminates. As illustrated below, continuous fiber ribs are the most efficient way to increase stiffness. Our innovative Additive Molding™ technology opens up unprecedented visual design latitude and performance capabilities while eliminating scrap and solving the sustainability issues of the past.
