First, these looks awesome, and a huge weight savings!

As for the comment about "100% pure unadulterated carbon fibre": It appears you're using prepreg tow, which has resin (glue) already applied to the fiber, (rather than running the fiber through a bath as it is wound). This is a method of filament winding which can result in a higher fiber content with less voids (and is a lot less messy), but is not entirely without a matrix.

I understand if you can't answer, but what prepreg are you using?
