  • The Carbon Roller is designed after a bicycle's bottle cage, with the water bottle used as the weapon's reservoir.

Etymology

Carbon refers to Carbon fiber, a very light material from which the Carbon Roller is apparently made. Many bicycle frames are made of carbon fiber, which alludes to the possibility that the Carbon Roller was made from salvaged bicycle parts.
