HOW IT COMPARES
Carbon is light, Steel is strong but Bamboo is both. Bamboo is a great resource which grows very fast. Bamboo absorbs more carbon than any other plant which helps the protection of the environment. Bamboo is strong and can be compared to steel. Its tensile strength per inch is twice that of steel. It is antibacterial and light.
Although similar materials, Bamboo grows naturally in nature, unlike Carbon Fibre, Bamboo’s vascular bundles are extremely stiff. Bamboo is significantly more durable than Carbon Fibre. Although they are SLIGHTLY heavier than carbon, it is nearly impossible for the bamboo to break under riding stress (including heavy impact).
Bamboo has greater tensile strength (resistance of being pulled apart) than Steel and withstand compression better than concrete, making it some of the strongest stuff on the planet.
