Discuss light weight issues concerning mountain bikes & parts.

The bikes are supposed to be available next year I think. So it'll be hard to get one now, and if we consider materials shortages and covid...
Ok found the answer here:
http://carbonexperts.scott-sports.com/i ... mx_hmf.jpgHMX-SL utilizes Nano-technology, which incorporates a carbon nanotube reinforced epoxy resin as well as T1000G carbon fiber. The carbon nanotubes offer an improved strength perpendicular and at off-axis to fiber direction, which allows for a better inter-laminar shear strength. The cohesion between the fibers is improved compared to our industry leading HMX carbon blend offering an unprecedented resistance. T1000G is the world's highest tensile strength fiber. This fiber is traditionally used for aerospace or defense applications. Strategic use of this new material results in a frame that is lightweight without compromise in power transfer.
Friend of mine has ordered two, delivery *about* easter time. One AXS equipped (not sure which one) and an eagle (GX?) equipped one.
Means he'll be selling both his current ones (bought last august), which are too small for me.
