There have been similar systems for 4x4 trucks for 10+ years they were used as a beadlock to keep the tire on, but allow single digit pressures. They are a pain to install, but do work well for the application. It should be viable in MTB if done correctly, it should be a similar effect to the old T.H.E. Eliminator rims.

Yup, but without a vacuum setup I couldn't get enough compression. In test parts that I made, I found I could only compress 2 layers with the tape method that I used before there were bunching issues during the wrapping. The next frame will make use of a Vacuum system to allow for more layers at once and less epoxy.

I used fabrics from Soller Composites ( http://www.sollercomposites.com/ )
The top and bottom layers were 3K 2x2 Twill 220GSM 640Ksi
The mid layers were 4in and 8 in wide Uniderictional 305gsm 711Ksi,
I alternated the direction of the uni fabric. No Vacuum, one or two layers at a time with tape compression. The 4" travel enduro frame I am building this winter will have a combination of tape and vacuum compression.

For this one I did just tape wrap, but will start to work with vac-bagging the new frame I will build this winter.

I have been riding it since around April '13. No durability issues, delam, or cracks. I have done XC rides and a bit of Dual Slalom racing on it. I am guessing that I have 1.5 to 2 times the amount of carbon I actually need in the frame. When I was building it, after I put the chainstays on, but before the seat stays were on, I was riding it around the basement without any issues.

I was wondering when the AMP fork would be re-born. Next will be the Lawill Leader!
