Wow.  Telemarktalk.com got resuscitated? It's looking a little emaciated... 

I'm sure Peter W. or Chris J. could both chime in with some first-hand knowledge here.

If carbon fiber couldn't flex, then how could and why would it be used in sail cloth?

BTW, Partrick H. might have been referring to past-part-time Skivittler Peter W., known on the sadly-no-longer-deceased-forum TTips as "Carbo" who may or may not have worked with carbon fiber in a previous career.

P.s. On another topic, did anybody else beside Wes's family & I score any loot at the Cochran's Ski Sale this past weekend?

I didn’t think carbon fiber flexed at all?

Mike

I'm no expert in CF boots but I know a thing or two about CF bikes, and yes, carbon weaves do flex. According to Google:

Carbon fiber composites flex according to the direction and number of fibers in the lay-ups, and react slightly differently according to the molding pressure, temperature and other mold-related inconsistencies. Carbon fiber frames tend to flex easily for a slight distance and then tighten up in a more progressive manner. Aggressive climbers and sprinters like this feel.
