Im not sure it was just to get people onside with their carbon frames, to be fair I would imagine the profit on alu frames is much higher then that of carbon fibre (but im probably wrong??) and they do the frame in both materials. I think it's definately a material that splits people, im all for hi-tec materials but I also appreciate good quality steel and aluminium, hell I even like those plastic volvo things!
They are a respected crew, and I believe their results.
Wouldn't it be nice to see a decent steel frame in the mix?
No issue with them promoting their frame material choice, if that is what the game is, but I question the competitive advantage for the majority of users.
Seeing as the majority are not competing.
"It is definitely a material that splits people"
I used to surf kayaks. I began back in the days of wood and fibreglass, and when plastic arrived it was a godsend.
Just as I packed it in there was a trend towards carbon use.
This was a hideous return to the old days of holed hulls and snapped kayaks.
Sometimes lighter is not better, unless your success in competition is compensation enough.
