Why Carbon?

Forty8 is light enough? Well yes and no. 48 grams for an alloy bashguard is extremely low, but why not push the limits on this one too. We did and the result is more than awesome. Stealthy look with green decals fits on any bike, but providing the "stealth" factor to maximum. 38 grams is nothing. Sometimes my bugger is heavier than that.
