also, kevlars natural color is a yellowish gold, and the mix of carbon fiber/kevlar is stronger than just carbon. It's extremely stiff, and cuts, sands, and finishes well.

Carbon kevlar is nice because it has the lightweight properties of carbon fiber with the tensile strength of kevlar .... necessary ? Of course not.... but it looks cool!

So if kevlar fiber is stronger than just carbon fiber, then an ALL kevlar fiber piece would be stronger than a carbon - kevlar composition?? :dunno:

Kevlar is stronger then CF and CF is lighter than kevlar.... combined as strong and light.
