Any of a class of synthetic polyamides that are formed from aromatic monomers, and yield fibres of exceptional strength and thermal stability.
- The most common fibers used in structural applications are fiberglass, aramid, and carbon.
- The aramid fibers in the bead will stretch a little, typically enough to make a tight tire go on much more easily by hand afterwards.
- It is largely made from carbon and aramid, which replaces fibreglass and is said to be much stronger and lighter.
