As far as I know the ones from Chris Barnes (UK) are made in carbon and on request in aramid (aka kevlar). The latter would be a far superior material to use in this application - especially compared to fiberglass - due to it's abrasion resistance.

Personally I would go with that, and get the top layer in carbon to get the cool look as well.
