2019 Lithium Moth


As a technologies company, we analysed the build process from start to finish in order to develop a platform that would be repeatable, consistent and able to maintain a high standard in terms of quality and performance heralding a new era in the International Moth Class. 


Form meets Function

Utilising a combination of pre preg, traditional wet lay up and infusion methods we have optimised the platform for todays athletes and the increasing demands of top level performance.

2019 Lithium Moth


Every inch of the Lithium was exhaustively thought out and designed over a period of 18 months to integrate with the hundreds of components that make up the platform. With over 60 moulds and countless jigs, the main drive was for repeatability within a micro manufacturing environment.

Atomik UK - Behind The Company

Creative Team

AtomikUK was born out of a passion for composites and specifically the International Moth. The creative team behind the Lithium Moth extends beyond Phil and Matt with help and guidance from many friends both inside and outside the Moth community. With input from Americas Cup team members to Olympic Tornado builders, the Lithium project continues to grow beyond our expectations.
