Since I had such a great experience with my previous Lomax cover, I splurged and purchased their carbon fiber one for this R1T. It is lighter than the previous coated aluminum one I sold with my Ridgeline. It is also not as thick as the old, coated aluminum one. This one works equally well and I look forward to many more years of use, just as I did on my old Ridgeline.I do not have experience with Lomax covers but they do seem good. I have plenty of experience with CF.. The CF finish is my only concern. Hopefully they have taken precautions to ensure the integrity of the CF aesthetics. For me, this material choice would be mostly for aesthetics.
Looking forward to CF Lomax owners experiences......
