Shimano Stradic. CI4 stands for Carbon Interfusion with the 4 referring to the number of electrons in the Carbon atom. Ultimately, this means CI4 is reinforced Carbon Fiber. The new CI4+ is the next generation of Shimano’s CI4 material and 250% stronger. It is over one and a half times stronger than their normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20% lighter and because it does not contain metal, it is impervious to rust.
