The latest Carbon race rim from Planet X. These rims are very, very light: 400 grams. Hammer the competition up the climbs, jump everyone in sprints or sit easy in the bunch. These rims are quick, responsive and build up strong.
The Carbon 50 rims weigh a feather-like 400 g, you can buy them individually as rims, or if you prefer we can handbuild them for you into your dream pair of race wheels.
A bit about the technology used to make the rims.
We use a Smooth-Wall technology production method on our new Carbon 50 rims. It makes the internal surfaces as smooth and wrinkle free as the outer surface. The result is better uniformity of the carbon layers and reduced wrinkles or voids compared to normal carbon wheel production - ultimately this means greater strength, minimum risk of stress fracture and a significantly lighter, yet stronger carbon products.
Effective Rim Diameter (ERD)
Our master wheel-builder recommends the following spoke lengths built on Planet X Pro hubs:
Rear drive: 291mm, Rear non-drive: 293mm, Front: 297mm
