Equipment Trend: Carbon Volleyball Standards
So, what’s the deal with carbon volleyball standards? Let’s take a look at why these standards have gained such popularity in recent years.
- They’re Super Lightweight – Carbon standards are lighter than traditional standards; they’re easier to carry, easier to store, and easier to set up.
- They’re Extra Strong – Although lightweight, carbon standards do not sacrifice strength. Carbon fiber material can be three times as strong as the steel equivalent.
- They’re Cool – The sleek color, the glossy finish, the carbon-fiber pattern. What’s not to like?
- They’re Not Cheap – Carbon volleyball standards are designed to be the best; premium material, premium accessories, and premium features.
