Finally it came from the paint job! :D And what a paint job!!!! A really unique master piece made by makeityours__miy (instagram) - www.morphiscomposites.com/services

Frameset went through a weight cure, was all stripped up from the original paint and painted again, this time with a unique color pigment which - at an angle appear blue - and at another angle appears UNPAINTED! Letting you to see the raw carbon weaves. Beyond this, a really lightweight paintjob with a mere 11g for paint and matte finish clearcoat!

And believe me... The pictures just doesn't make it justice :D Don't miss out the link at the end of this post. It's a video for you to see the changes happening! :)

@naavt congrats, that's a solid weight saving!

For anyone wondering, the journey starts in this thread. I had a similar amount of weight saved after repainting my Aethos. At least Specialized offers a raw paint job option and advertises no-paint weight. Not sure why open mold vendors don't do the same, that should cost almost nothing and improve marketing towards weight-conscious folk.
