Road Rims - Real lightweights
At some point, every ambitious road cyclist comes to the point where they start to think about new wheels - faster, lighter, better looking! Wheels make a big difference to how your bike feels, so upgrading makes a lot of sense here. With a healthy mix of low weight and high stiffness, you can get real advantages on your road bike even in the mid-price segment. In terms of material, you are spoiled for choice – inexpensive aluminium rims with good all-round properties or more expensive carbon models. When choosing new wheels for your road bike you need to check the wheel size, width and tyre compatibility if you are thinking of running tubeless tyres. For carbon rims, you must also pay special attention to the brake pads that will work properly with carbon.
