Berk Composites in Slovenian Media
Once Jure Berk started his career in making handmade carbon cycling parts, his appearance in media grew exponentially. This is just a few media in Slovenia that have done a piece about Jure and his team Berk Composites. Jure also held a few lectures about young people getting into business and of course he also held lectures about carbon fiber modeling in cycling. Basically every media writes about Jure’s success story. Jure started to model carbon fiber early in his life. He started when he was still attending primary school, when he and his friend produced rockets. His friend worked on propulsion components and Jure the body of a rocket, which had a shape of a bike frame tube. The principle that he uses still today. After the two found out that the missiles are quite dangerous, Jure decided focus on modeling carbon fiber for cycling purposes. Which is not a “shocker” because, Jure was a professional cyclist, racing for a Slovenian pro continental team Radenska. At the beginning he helped himself with scholarship and cycling salary. He still remembers: “It was really tough to get right material. At first, nobody would take me seriously.
Now he’s purchasing material directly from the biggest manufacturers. He says: “The latest and most sophisticated materials are initially reserved for the biggest companies. Companies, primarily in aerospace industry. Only after the materials are tested by largest companies on the market, what is left over is made available to smaller manufacturers, also in cycling.”
