FALCO Holsters proudly introduces its latest innovation, the CX85 Carbon Fiber Holster, at SHOT Show. This state-of-the-art slim-profile holster highlights carbon fiber material's renowned strength and lightweight advantages. Designed for a Glock 19, this meticulously crafted holster represents FALCO’s steadfast dedication to quality and customer satisfaction. See it in the FALCO Holsters Booth #42148 during SHOT Show. Presented by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), SHOT Show will be held at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 23-26.

Introducing the New CX85 Carbon Fiber Holster

"At FALCO Holsters, we take immense pride in establishing new benchmarks in holster design and testing the limits,” asserts Katarina Zacharová, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at FALCO Holsters. “The CX85 is not merely another plastic holster with a carbon fiber finish; it is a testament to our commitment to innovation and the highest quality materials. Crafted from genuine carbon fiber and weighing a mere 3.5 oz., this holster signifies a delicate balance of mechanical expertise and artistic finesse.”
 
With the debut of the CX85 Carbon Fiber Holster, FALCO Holsters goes beyond the surface to embrace the essence of carbon fiber. Zacharová emphasizes, “This holster represents more than a surface finish—it is a purposeful integration of real carbon fiber. Our thorough process involves embedding woven carbon fibers into resin, followed by autoclave curing, resulting in a uniform, high-end material system the same as those employed in aviation, aerospace, and top-tier racing cars.”
 
The carbon fiber components undergo manufacturing and curing at the same Slovak facility that is a distinguished supplier of specialized carbon fiber components for entities such as the renowned Swedish supercar manufacturer. The remaining stages of the manufacturing process, including hand-tapping, edge finishing, and drilling, are executed with precision in-house by FALCO artisans. The CX85 Carbon Fiber Holster is not just a simple holster; it’s a masterpiece that marries cutting-edge technology with a proven holster design.

In the January 2024 edition of “Guns & Ammo” magazine, their review of the CX85 describes the slender width of the carbon fiber, emphasizing the holster’s combination of strength, lightweight design, and low-profile nature. The review notes, “…the CX85 is one of the lowest profile OWB holsters available.”
