Not really? Insanely stiff yes, but afaik when you crash a carbon fiber mountain bike and nick the weave in any way you're in trouble, and the nicking isn't all that hard to do.

I've been out of the cycling universe for a couple years, maybe things have changed.

Admittedly, this is a vid made by a bike mfg, so it may lack some objectivity.
