Like the all-carbon wheels from Lightweight and Reynolds, Madfiber constructs its wheels by bonding carbon rims, spokes and hubs together to make the wheel. And like the carbon wheels from the other brands, these are crazy light. The biggest difference comes in the price. The other wheels are priced around $5,000, but the Madfibers can be had for thousands less. The designer says Madfiber’s carbon construction process is totally unique in the bike industry and gives his wheels unprecedented stiffness. A road test quickly confirms that bold claim.
