Introducing the NOAX Carbon Fiber Handguards by Brigand Arms – the ultimate solution for reducing weight, enhancing style, and optimizing shooting performance in your AR build. Crafted with aerospace-grade carbon fiber, these handguards redefine lightweight excellence, providing strength comparable to aluminum at less than half the weight. The lattice structure ensures a solid grip and allows for versatile accessory mounting from almost any angle, while also insulating your forehand and facilitating superior barrel cooling rates for accuracy even in sustained fire. With a free-floating barrel nut that exerts no pressure on the barrel, your point of impact remains consistent for precision shooting. Plus, backed by an industry-leading warranty, you can trust in the durability and reliability of NOAX handguards.
Choose from lengths ranging from 7” to 15” to suit your shooting style and rifle setup. Each handguard features deep-black hard-anodized aluminum end-caps for easy mounting to your upper receiver and protection against impact. The NOAX lineup includes the EDGE, BLADE, and ATLAS models, all constructed with precision NOAX material, differing only in the forward end-cap design to accommodate various preferences and accessories.
With every Brigand Arms handguard order, you receive a lightweight barrel nut to replace your existing one. Installation is made simple with tutorials available for both AR-10 and AR-15 setups, although consulting a gunsmith is recommended. For frequent AR build enthusiasts, the ultra-compact BAAR armorer’s wrench is an ideal accessory. Additionally, ensure compatibility with low-profile gas blocks; we recommend Faxon for a lightweight option and Aero Precision for adjustable gas blocks.
Experience the difference with NOAX – our redesigned fabrication process gives us complete control, resulting in a stronger, sleeker material with improved accessory mounting precision. Built in Birmingham, Alabama, each NOAX handguard reflects our commitment to quality craftsmanship and innovation. Upgrade your AR build with the unmatched performance and style of NOAX Carbon Fiber Handguards by Brigand Arms.
