    Can someone explain to me why anyone would get carbon fiber rims? They’re unbelievably expensive, there is no weight savings over comparable alloy rims (comparable’s not even the right word because of the cost differential), and they’re completely compromised by them smallest nick. Can someone please tell me one reason anyone – pro, amateur, or weekender – should ever look twice at carbon rims?

      ive been running carbon mtb wheels for a couple years. they are incredibly tough. the rocks that will ding a 340g stans rim (if my rims arent carbon, theyre stans) will do nothing to the carbon rim. they can be wider and are significantly stiffer. it really is a win/win/win. and they dont have to cost that much more than aluminum rims…

    I have an older set of Reynolds carbon wheels (26″). I have found them to not be completely compromised by the smallest nick. In fact they are stiffer and stay true longer than comparable alloy rims. By “comparable” I am referring to weight; a set of alloy rims that are close in weight are far more fragile. They are pricey, but I’m happy with them and will buy another set when the time comes.

    • Dan Morrison says:

      Thanks, Brian. Glad you enjoy them. Unless there’s a huge drop in either price or weight for carbon rims, I’ll be sticking with aluminum.

    I have over 2 years on my Enve composites AM wheel set with out any issues. Before this wheel set I was killing at least 1 or 2 wheelsets a summer. I’m talking 1800 plus gram wheel sets at that. The Enve wheels are stiffer, stronger, faster, and haven’t required trueing yet!
    As for durability check out the tests done by the Syndicate team. The carbon rims were outlasting aluminum rims by more than 10 to 1. That’s coming from pro DH guys running the same rim that I do.
    You also need to understand Carbon wheels are built by hand not a machine. My Enve wheels are made a few hours from where I live in Utah. That’s right hand made in America.
    I love these wheels and will gladly pay the premium for them again.
