    You must have missed the memo telling the world that carbon fiber can be painted.

    I don't even see any part of it that remotely looks like carbon. It looks all metal with foam padding at the top.

    It has pretty good reviews on amazon but I still don't know where the carbon is.

    Why would you paint carbon when it's the main selling point not to mention that paint adds weight.

    This isn't a Honda Civic... you don't need to worry about the couple extra grams the paint weighs. :mamoru:
