The Apex ring we just completed a Kickstarter for is one of our best designs. It is different than most other carbon fiber rings on the market because it utilizes blackwood carbon. Blackwood carbon fiber is horizontally cut from a 1.5" thick block of carbon fiber. It's 3x's the size of our Aurora Carbon Fiber. It gives the ring the appears of having wood grains. We find that to be mesmerizingly beautiful. In addition, we added tasteful glow in the dark racing stripes. The goal was to be subtle. We didn't want to detract from the black wood carbon fiber. The end result is an incredible ring design.
