Bike Doc: Carbon wrap simply means it's an alloy post with a carbon looking finish to it. Basically meaning it's not carbon. A proper carbon post or bar will make the ride more comfortable as they are designed to flex ever so slightly. This reduces ''buzz'' and makes for a more comfortable ride.
BH: Thanks Bike Doc
