Reply To: Carbon, Real or Fake ?

How can you tell ,
The plastic covering on the caliper link hose rubbed completely through the front “carbon mud guard” in 1500mls , no damage to the hose coating , as I said can you see a carbon weave on the unfinnishad back , that’s assuming carbon weave was laid up in a mold vacuumed and heated , there is also a lot of carbon injection moulded , (longer fibers = stiffer molding) plain gray look and hydro graphics give it the carbon look in your chosen weave, possibly a little harder than a hose covering,
while your looking at each item try a magnet on you stainless wheel spokes .
