The composite plates I make are 4 layers of 600gsm carbon laid at opposing angles and 2 layers of carbon/twaron, one top one bottom. Incredibly stiff but will flex a little if required. Bagged and infused with epoxy. Yes they are more expensive than ally, I did them more to show people what can be done with composites for rally bikes than to actually sell them. Here's one just before being drilled. The blue black colour is the carob/twaron fibre. Twaron is an aramid like kevlar, just black rather than yellow
