Has anyone made one? I like original but reckon a carbon one would make it even better

Aren't they the same as early model S-works? As I remember it looks very similar but never actually tried swapping them and I sold them both. By the way, as I recall it, the Carbon spider is a bit heavier than its alu counterpart. Or alu ones were stiffer, can't remember...something like that. But someone did make a custom alu spider that's lighter and stiffer than both...

Should ask FWB. They did a bunch of cranks comparison, they would know on actual fitments in fact have them both still.

I recall someone made a custom alloy one that was significantly lighter.

Ahh, found it:

That looks promising. I would like to get an aero spider for my lightning cranks or a 1x set up.

what BCD are you looking for/ring size. Carbon-Ti used to make carbon X-Spiders that fitted the Lightnings/S-works and others, and weighed from 14g but only for a 76bcd. Surely someone could adapt that to road sizes.
