After about four months of time in development, we’re extremely proud to do a complete re-launch of the Carbon Fiber Gear website. Even with all the time spent on the new look and feel, this is actually only phase 1 of 3-4 phases in which you’ll see even more improvements to the site.
What Has Changed?
We literally went through every single page of the site and re-designed from the ground up for not only good looks, but faster performance and better functionality.
The first thing you’ll notice is how quickly pages load now. This will actually get even better as we continue to optimize in upcoming phase releases, but one big change is a new server with dedicated resources to handle CFG traffic.
In our previous look the site was more blog oriented, most people probably didn’t even know we have a store on our site. The new look is more store-oriented. We still have our carbon fiber blog on the site, and we’ll still continue to post to it…in fact, we’ll be posting more frequently. We have a ton of great content coming up to look forward to! You’ll find the new design to be much cleaner and easier to navigate and explore the site.
The biggest changes were made in our store, where we spent a ton of time revamping every page and product. You’ll find it much easier to browse around and find unique carbon fiber products, and we have a bunch of new stuff to add that we’ve been holding off on for this launch. The store is easy to get to, just point your browser to https://carbonfibergear.com.
We’ve also added some great new functionality, such as PayPal payments directly on our site and the ability to get auto-notified via e-mail when a product is back in stock. Our customer service section has been revamped as well, making it much easier to contact us or find the answers you’re looking for prior to making a purchase. As with the rest of the site, we’ll continue to tweak the store and improve.
We’d love to hear your feedback on what you think of the new site. If you have any suggestions, or just want to pat us on the back, please do so. We’re also looking for any bugs (there are already a couple we’re working on), so if you see something funky, be sure to let us know.
The new site launch arrives with our new slogan “Carbon Fiber is the New Black”. Black is so outdated, it only looks sleek. Carbon fiber on the other hand is extremely lightweight and strong, which is why it’s the new black.
