Carbon clincher wheels benefit from a superior stiffness to weight ratio compared to alloy clinchers. That allows for low spoke count and they offer a very smooth and compliant ride, almost like a "floating" feeling. We designed a wider rim to offer increased tyre comfort also, use from 23mm to 32mm tires.
The rim profile is optimized aerodynamically in comparison to a alloy-carbon rim or a full alloy rim, that simply makes it faster and who doesn’t want to ride faster? Full carbon rims are more responsive, stiffer and accelerates better.
In short, a superior combination of weight, stiffness and aerodynamics compared to other wheels. We only use straight pull DT hubs simply because they are the best hubs around. The nipples are external to make maintenance easy and efficient.
