    It is 100% Carbon. All 3 of the new P1 Mountain bikes are.

    Non P1 bikes -
    The Fuel Ex 9.8 has carbon seat stays and Alu chain stays
    Superfly 100 Elite SL has carbon seat stays and Alu chain stays

    And the Superfly 100 SL and Fuel Ex 9.7 have got an all aluminium rear end.

    The 2014 rhythm elite and comp are new designs. Unfortunately they only are for Project One bikes at the moment.

    ~200Grams less than current rhythm pros according to a rep.

    Like DukeNeverwinter said the new Rhythm Elite wheelset that should be available later summer is a fresh take on Bontragers wheels. Much improved from the current offerings. You can see them in the P1 stuff right now, possibly will trickle down later in the model year. I would like to see them spec'd on the Fuel Ex 9.8 29. If that happens that will most likely be my next bike!
