Once again, thank you guys for best wishes!
@plpete prototype product that I'm using on my bike right now, has no problem flexing around bends, that have 2.5cm (1") radius.
@eric, making the survey I had no intentions in collecting any personal data. I assure you, these informations will be used exclusively for development of the cable set and won't shared in any way.
(P.S. I'm an mechanical engineer and I have basically no experience in making surveys. If I was intrusive I appologize, it was unintentionally
@DMF thanks for asking! This was out primary concern. The problem with nokon carbon fiber cable set was the combination of production process and the shape of the links. Nokon produced their links on turning machines, cutting them form a pre-made carbon tube. Any kind of cutting a carbon fiber composite once the resin is hardened causes microfractures that weaken the material. These microfractures combined with the male/female cone shape of the links caused the links to break under pressure.
Production process that we're using is injection moulding, to avoid the surface damage caused by cutting mentioned above. The shape of male/female part of the housing link is redesigned in a way, that it generates as little transverse tension as possible.
Regarding the nylon material; On it's own, Nylon's highly compressable compared to aluminium. Once you reinforce it with carbon (or any other fiber), it becomes up to twice as hard, plastic deformation is next to nothing and all this at 1/3 of the weight of the Aluminium.
