Do carbon rims make a difference?
Because they are lighter, carbon wheels reduce the effort you need to make to reach higher speeds on straights, whether on road cycling or even in MTB. Being more aerodynamic, they are able to provide better performance, less effort and friction while achieving better results and less energy spent by you.
What are the advantages of carbon rims?
Carbon fiber wheels are lighter and easier to turn and, therefore, quicker and more responsive to those deep corners you take on the track. On top of that, lighter wheels spin and stop with a lot less effort than heavier wheels.
How long do carbon rims last?
The lifespan can fall within a pretty huge window, In the worst cases, riders may experience rim lifespans as short as 1500 miles, and in the best cases perhaps up to 12000 miles.
