    Everything will break if it's "hit" wrong. Warranty from any manufacturer covers defects in manufacturer process.

    However, with warranties being pretty much standardized (give or take) across the industry what i would look at more is how the company CS treats you if you were to have a warranty issue.

    With brands stocked by an LBS you can talk to a person who is local to you and dropping a bike off with them.
    With brands that are mail order you're dealing with contact by phone or email and taking care of shipping yourself.

    My $0.02 ..

    I have a YT Capra 27 and the paint chips pretty easily on the carbon. Not sure why but I've had small pebbles chip the paint off right down to the carbon, it chips off really cleanly. Never seen that on another carbon bike, maybe it's just mine.
