Carbon Wheels look great and weigh zip – but BE AWARE they will overheat with excessive braking when you head down the Range, if using the old CALLIPER type brakes . Carbon Wheels are not suited for the steep descent of this ride, unless you are using FULL DISC ROTOR Brakes. We recommend Alloy Rims for #RTR2018 if you have CALLIPER Brakes with Rubber pads.
