Also,

From a strength point of view they have missed a trick...

They have used unidirectional fabric, where more strength for the same weight can be gained from a decent 2x2 or 4x4 Twill Fabric.

Simple enough to change at point of manufacturer and something I would insist on.

Most choose the unidirectional fabric as it is simpler to work with when looking for a 'cosmetic' finish.

SW :D

im surprised simon, with your weaving skills, that you havent made a carbon frame yet??... is this something you would consider???.. i heard about a carbon composite product that offered humungous strength...id be interested in one if you did... anything to chop a few kilos off my macro! lol

Don't get me wrong, most stainless frames are 6.5 kg to 7 kg and the carbon frame is very well made and 5.9kg with the ali arms. Would have to tread with kid gloves as it would scratch but could also be polished out and repaired. We are working on a superlight chassis sub 4kg.

I am on the lookout for a light weight harness.
