G-Race Track Straps
R96 Frame Carbon Technology HM + IM + HR. : HM: High Modulus. « High-end » fibers. Their stiffness is very high, on average double that of HR fibers. The HM fibers permit more rigidity without the added weight. LOOK bicycles are made with either HM 3K or 1.5K fibers, the latter having a finer weave, and therefore lighter (ie. a 1.5 fiber =1500 threads in 1 fiber). / HR: High Resistance. Fibers made from the shortest carbonization process. Their stiffness is the weakest of all but they benefit from a greater stretch resistance before breaking, which makes them a useful compound for product durability. The products produced solely using HR fibers are heavier because more material is necessary to obtain a desired rigidity. / IM: Intermediate Modulus. These fibers have good durability and their characteristics fall in between HM and HR which makes them a good complement.
