Carbon Fibre Road Bike Wheels make a huge difference to not only the weight of a road bike, but also the way that the road bike handles and feels. Carbon Fibre wheels have become increasingly popular in recent years, and are the wheels of choice for professional athletes. As with anything in the world of cycling, upgrades and materials that were once the reserves of the professionals, very quickly make it to the world of amateur cycling - and more and more people are choosing to make the switch from aluminium to carbon fibre wheels.
Carbon Fibre is an incredible material, and those making the switch can expect aerodynamic gains - with wind tunnels showing that the shape and design of carbon fibre wheels provide plenty of drag reduction. Carbon fibre wheels are also incredibly lightweight, the deep section rims of aluminium makes for a heavier wheel - where carbon fibre wheels, especially those with tubular rims, can be incredibly light.
Carbon road wheels also provide a stiffer ride, which increases performance for powerful riders. Stiffer wheels are more responsive, and carbon fibre is better than aluminium at soaking up uneven and rough road surfaces. Carbon Fibre Wheels are also incredibly tough, but if they are damaged - they are impossible to repair and are expensive to replace.
