OK, it may not necessarily be lighter than lightweight alloy caps but who can say no to a carbon fibre headset cap.

There are loads on ebay, from China, typically from £1.35 upwards and despite having photos of carbon fibre, they turn out to be plastic with a grid printed on the top, I know cause I bought 2 lots of 2.

Disappointing and annoying due to the dishonesty.

Anyway, third time lucky.
Seller sells genuine carbon fibre caps, item no. 253401268133

Only downside is that trying to get fibres to be perfectly in line when fitted will be slightly out due to the matt lay up, but you need to be very picky or suffer from severe ocd for it to matter.
