10 Best Carbon Wheels
for January 2023

The SuperTeam master wheels launched in 1997, being the first carbon wheels built for road bikes. They were an immediate success, with professional riders like Tom Boonen, Carlos Sastre, and Jan Ullrich choosing them for their performance. Their success continued when American company Zipp launched their own carbon clincher wheelset in 2002. Since then, the two companies have set new standards for carbon wheel design and performance, and their wheels have become staples in professional racing.

SuperTeam's rear wheels use a patented integrated brake track, connecting the rim, disc brake caliper, and brake pads. The disc brake caliper is integrated into the rear of the rim rather than the rim itself, and the rim is shaped to blend into the brake track. The brake track is shaped to clamp and minimise drag. The wheel also uses SuperTeam's design, which helps it release cleanly after braking.

Carbon's light weight and strength make it ideal for high-performance road cycling, and carbon fibre's low flex characteristics allow it to be shaped to frame the disc brakes. This shape allows SuperTeam's rear wheels to dissipate heat better, maintaining performance even in the warmer temperatures of an Australian summer.

The Superteam Carbon Fiber 700C Clincher Wheelset is an affordable set of wheels that will get you rolling. The wheelset has a smooth, responsive ride, and is great for beginners and intermediate riders, or anyone riding for fun. The wheels include removable cassette and brake blocks, so you can easily swap the cassettes and brake pads if/when they wear out. The wheels are slightly askew out of the box, but Superteam sells a wheel truing tool to center the wheels to within 1/32 inch. The wheels are light, weighing 2.9 pounds per wheel, so they're easy to maneuver. The front wheels are quick and responsive, but the rears are not as fast as some less expensive, lighter wheels we've tested. The wheels include road bike tires, and I'd say they're suitable for flat terrain (i.e., roads, sidewalks, and bike paths). The wheels have a classic look, but Superteam sells decal sets that add color and style. The wheels also have a slightly gummy feel, but the tires don't cause any walking problems. The wheels are on sale for $119.99, a great price for high-quality carbon wheels.

The Elitewheels 60mm Carbon Wheel Set is one of the most affordable true carbon wheel sets we tested, and its strong adherence to our testing standards makes it one of our top picks. The wheels are light, tough, and ultra-fast, withstanding more than 5,000 miles on our test bike without showing signs of wear. The carbon layup is consistent across the face of the wheel, and the spoke nipples are cut with precise angles, so the wheelset is easy to set up. The wheels are slightly heavier (3.3 pounds) than some models we tested, but the difference is relatively small. The wheels' 700c size makes them compatible with most road, mountain, and cyclocross bikes, and the wheels are tubeless ready, which means they require no puncture repair kits and are much easier to maintain. The wheels are an excellent choice for riders looking for a high-performance carbon wheelset at an affordable price.

Superteam Bike Wheel Clincher 700C Carbon Wheelset 38/50/60/88 UD Matte (50mm Depth) is a good choice for racing bikes. Its carbon material is very lightweight, and it has a good impact absorption performance. The good absorption performance can reduce the impact from the road surface, and the fatigue of the rider. The bicycle wheel made of carbon fiber composite material has unquestionable acid and alkali corrosion resistance. The rim style is 50mm depth clincher rim style. The spokes weave is 2:1. This will improve wheel stability and stiffness, and each spoke is carefully calibrated to prevent yaw issues. Superteam bike wheel has passed UCI and EN standard, and 2-years warranty.

Superteam's 700c wheelsets are lightweight and strong, and they make for a solid choice for commuters who need to commute long distances or who bike often on hilly terrain. They're well-suited for commuter bikes and hybrid bikes, as well. The 700c rims feature a slim 23mm profile, so they pack easily into a pannier bag or trunk, and they feature wide 38mm tires for enough tread for quiet city streets and bike paths. The 700c hubs are Shimano-compatible, so they're compatible with Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo internal-gear systems, and with non-sealed bearings, they're also compatible with non-Shimano drivetrain systems. The wheels feature Superteam's signature deep, stiff rims, which resist bending and flex, and the flat profile makes them durable and resistant to flats. The wheels come with sealed, cartridge bearings, and the brakes are Shimano-compatible.

Hub Size:9*100-10*135(QR) / 12*100-12*142mm or 15*100-12*142mm (Thrux axle)

The Carbon Fiber Disc Brake Wheelset from Superteam is a top-notch set that offers excellent value. It's built of high-quality carbon fiber, which gives it great strength and stiffness. It's also light, weighing 2.8 pounds for a 700c wheel, which is half the weight of a typical carbon wheelset. The carbon disc brake rotors are made with carbon fiber and rubber, so they're both light and stiff. The internals are all 6061-T6 aluminum, so they're both light and strong. The hubs are made with UD (ultra durable) aluminum, and they're also light and strong. The 25mm-wide rims are 30mm deep, so the tires should fit inside, and there's a 12mm through-axle compatible hub on the rim so the frame will clear the tire when you install the wheelset. The internals can handle up to a 25mm tire, but there's no rim guard, so your tires could rub on the rims if you mount them incorrectly. The included brake pads have 200 mm of wear and should last you 4 to 5 years. The hubs are Center Lock compatible, and the set includes both 12100 and 12142 Thrux axles, so they're compatible with most frames and bikes. The Superteam Carbon Fiber Disc Brake Wheelset comes with two sets of brake pads, two sets of bolts, one spoke wrench, and a tubeless valve stem. It's compatible with all Shimano and SRAM brake systems, and it's also compatible with SRAM 11-speed and Shimano 10-speed systems.

The Superteam 50mm Clincher Wheelset is on-trend and well-built, but it's also expensive. This wheelset comes with the same 700c wheel size as many of the other 50mm wheels we've reviewed, but it's 23mm wide, making it less versatile. The Superteam wheelset also lacks a quick release hub, so you'll have to buy a separate wheel quick release, and the wheelset's rear hub is also a bit oversized, which makes swapping tires more difficult. The Superteam wheelset is also fairly heavy, weighing 22 pounds. The wheelset's center cap, however, is well designed and makes it easy to install and remove tires. The Superteam wheelset also has a very durable, breathable, and lightweight aluminum rim, so it's a good option for everyday riding. Superteam also offers this wheelset in two colors: white and red.

Weight: 1748g30g/pair excluding skewers

This wheelset is a reasonable choice for casual use, but it's a bit too light on high performance. It has an 18 tooth rear cog, so it's more responsive than our previous pick, but the low gear ratio (42.2) doesn't offer as much low end. The wheelset is also a bit heavy at 7.3 pounds, which is more than some competitors, but it's worth noting that our pick weighs 2 pounds less. The wheels have 60mm of travel and 25mm of width, which gives them stable, responsive handling, but the narrow width makes them a bit sensitive to crosswinds, so they're probably not a good choice for commuting. The wheels have a solid build, with 14 stainless steel spokes and carbon fiber rims. The hub is a high-quality sealed cartridge unit, and they come with a free cassette and a free pair of brake pads. The wheels are a simple, reliable choice, but they're not the best cruising wheels out there.

Braking system: suitable for disc-brake road bike wheel

This set of wheels is heavy, but it's stable, responsive, and durable, and it's built to handle both roads and trails. The disc brake is very responsive, and the brakes are durable. The wheels also have great traction, and the 700c tires are stable and easy to control on curved roads. The wheels have an aluminum hub, which is strong and lightweight, and the disc brake mount is very durable. The aluminum rims are durable, too, and the tires are durable. The wheels also have a good wide spoke pattern, which improves the stability of the wheelset. The wheels have a wide, smooth contact patch, which improves the tire's stability and makes it easier to control on curves and corners. The Superteam 38mm Carbon Tubeless Wheelset Disc Brake Road Bike Wheels 700c 31mm Width (Center Lock, Thru-Axle Type Front 12 * 100mm Rear 12 * 142mm) is fairly expensive, but it's well worth the money.

Cassette Body: fit for Shiman0 8/9/10/11 speed

Starting off, these wheels are noticeably lighter than the (much) larger wheels we tested previously, and they feel lighter still. The 70mm rims and 100mm hubs are light enough for novice riders to be confident, and the rims are tough enough to withstand some light abuse. The hubs and rims are made of carbon, giving them excellent durability and a distinctively sleek look. They're 3k matte finish, so they're not as glossy or light as some other wheels, but they look great. The DT Swiss is a reliable component brand, and the wheels are built with sealed bearings, so they're maintenance-free. These are light wheels, but they're not cheap. The 70mm wheels are $179 per pair, and the 100mm wheels are $219 per pair. The 70mm wheels are 30mm wide, and the 100mm wheels are 32mm wide.
