Following the product release of Hyperion Elite 4 in February 2024, the highly reviewed shoes are in high demand. In January 2024, ARRIS launched a line of next-gen carbon fiber bicycle spokes that are 2.7x stronger gram for gram than the best-in-class aero spoke in the market today.
In the summer of 2024, an industry-leading bicycle brand will release one of its top, award-winning bicycles that features an ARRIS bracket.

Fueling the company’s growth includes continued performance-driven innovation, strategic go-to-market initiatives, and the expansion of ingredient brand partnerships with an emphasis on expanding consumer products (e.g., footwear, bicycles, portable electronics) and aerospace applications.

Founded in 2017, the ARRIS Technology team created a new manufacturing category called Additive Molding by pioneering the development of patented software, materials, and high-volume production methods that prioritize specific stiffness and strength. New levels of product performance are now possible with this first-of-its-kind advanced manufacturing platform, enabling continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite structures that are lighter and more sustainable.
