Sporting success is often the result of marginal advantages, whether that is in terms of the individual competitor, their training regime, or the equipment they employ. In pursuit of these marginal advantages, composites are now the material of choice for many sporting goods where their benefits in terms of high stiffness, low weight, protection and customisation are enjoyed by elite athletes and enthusiastic amateurs alike.
Composites in Sport will explore new composite material developments in sports-related applications including equipment, safety wear, apparel, prosthetics and infrastructure. It is aimed at material developers and suppliers, manufacturers, researchers, regulatory bodies and athletes of all abilities.
Following feedback from the 2016 edition, the conference is now taking place over 2 days; maximising opportunities for sharing knowledge and networking. Visit
