racing carbon rim brake
After the best in aero and weight? Our racing carbon rim brake build is for you. With 55mm deep carbon rims you are getting the best compromise between weight and aerodynamics.
Built as a jack of all traits these carbon wheels are ready to hit the road at a sprint. Halo RS hubs laced to JRA Mahi Mahi rims. These are built for speed and uk roads.
For this build we have gone for Halos RS hubs. These are light hubs with unrivalled engagement. Ready for your next race or fast ride. Using supper smooth sealed cartridge bearings acceleration has never felt so easy.
This build uses j bend hubs as this lets us increase the lateral strength. As a result of this your brakes perform better. These wheels are also laced 16/8 on the rear. This gives you far greater stiffness on the drive side so that you don’t loose any of the power you put down.
Just Riding Along rims are the optimal choice for this build for a couple of reasons. First is that they are optimised for aero gains but are still stable in the cross wind. When you first ride deep section carbon wheels you can feel the wind push the front end away. These rims reduce that feeling, leaving with you only the feeling of speed. Pushing into the corner feels natural and the sprint out again is a joy.
Optimised for 25mm-28mm tyres these rims give you all the speed you could want whilst maintain the comfort needed on uk roads.
We use sapim race or cx-ray spokes for this build. sapim race are strong and dependable and keep the mass down. cx-ray let you get most of the aero gains that these rims give you. Laced radial front and 16/8 rear
