About Akrapovic

Akrapovic is a pioneer in the innovative use of titanium and super-alloys. The brand is at the forefront of carbon-fiber component development and production. Akrapovic exhaust systems are renowned for increasing performance, unmistakable sound, innovative design, lightweight technology, quality workmanship, and durability.

Founded in Slovenia by former motorcycle racer Igor Akrapovic , the brand has grown to international prominence, winning major world championship titles and setting the highest design standards, which have led to multiple Red Dot awards (for outstanding international product design and communication).

A pioneer in its field, Akrapovic is widely recognized as a highly innovative materials technology company. The brand is synonymous with the highest level of design, performance enhancement and the creation of an unmistakable deeply resonant exhaust sound. The company’s products are designed and manufactured for motorcycles and performance cars by a passionate and highly-skilled workforce of over 1000 employees using the latest technology, processes and finest materials. The Racing R&D department works with dozens of racing teams. Over 100 world champions have already relied on Akrapovic exhaust systems. And this is just the beginning of a long exciting ride.

About Akrapovic

Racing has always been the lifeblood of Akrapovic and, as the company reached its 25thanniversary in 2016, it also celebrated its 100th world championship title, a feat achieved when Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) won the MotoGP championship in 2015. The technical ability and support Akrapovic provides to teams competing in MotoGP, EWC, WorldSBK, MXGP, Enduro, Supercross, Dakar rally, DTM, and FIA WEC give them the competitive edge, which follows the same heritage and know-how that is transferred into road and off-road systems.

Increased performance, user-friendly controllable power delivery, signature sound, and durable lightweight exhausts are all directly related to the research, development, and testing that every Akrapovic exhaust is subjected to in the racing arena, giving it a pedigree that is rarely matched.

The company operates from state-of-the-art production facilities and technologically advanced R&D facilities in Slovenia, which include an in-house titanium foundry, a metallurgical laboratory, several motorcycle and car dynamometers, and high-tech production machinery. Akrapovic has over 1000 employees and markets its products in more than 80 countries worldwide.

Akrapovic Materials

The company made a great leap forward in 2009, when it opened its own in-house cutting-edge titanium foundry; it is still the only exhaust system supplier with its own in-house foundry. The titanium foundry facility participates in all phases of the investment casting process, from wax injection to the final inspection of the cast parts with X-ray radioscopy and other control procedures, such as chemical analyses, mechanical properties, and dimensional accuracy.

Akrapovic has a fully equipped metallurgical laboratory for testing the material properties and quality of products. The company believes that metallography is a great tool for understanding the limits of exhaust systems and materials. They achieve all of this using exclusive in-house knowledge and technologies, and more than twenty years of experience in processing special materials for exhaust systems.

The company’s exhaust systems are crafted from proprietary titanium alloys. These are three times stronger than other “commercial” alloys available. Their high quality and strength make them more difficult to form than common alloys, but they ensure products that are substantially more durable, dimensionally more stable, and have significantly increased heat resistance.

Its carbon-fiber components are produced in-house with temperature-resistant carbon-fiber resins. Through innovative production techniques, the company can produce parts with very complex shapes in various sizes. These hand crafted high-quality materials are used as parts of exhaust systems such as carbon-fiber muffler outer sleeves and heatshields on motorcycles, and the appearance of a car can be further improved with optional handcrafted carbon-fiber rear diffusers and carbon-fiber tailpipes.

The family of nickel-based superalloys that are alloyed with chrome, molybdenum, and niobium are also commercially known as Inconel alloys. These kinds of alloys have exceptional mechanical properties at extremely low and high temperatures. They are also extremely resistant to corrosion and corrosive acids (both surface resistance and at the crystal level) and have very high oxidation resistance.
