Why Carbon fiber?
Best shock absorption
Infinitely mouldable to any design
Flexible where it needs to be
Won’t rust or corrode like steel
What is the best type of carbon? 1k,2k,3k, or 12k?
Well, I am about to explode a myth.
The "k" refers to the weave of the fiber and is usually only on the surface for cosmetics. In order to provide some precision when laying up a frame all inner layers are typically UD, or unidirectional. There is no strength or stiffness difference between the weaves REGARDLESS of the propaganda issued by various companies. How do I know? I design this stuff for a living.
If it really made a difference then jets and race cars would also use woven material and it would be used on multiple layers but they don't and it isn't.
