Pro’s Carbon clincher is made for flat to rolling courses where speed and aero are the number one priority. Using a 3k carbon weave to create a super smooth, super stiff surface, this disc wheel pairs well with a deep front wheel for wind-cutting excellence. Unlike many carbon discs, the Carbon Clincher does not use shrouded spokes, so expect an incredibly inflexible wheel that may ride a little harsh. On the plus side, the aluminum brake track is actually a huge boon to riders who have come to expect poor stopping power—particularly when trying to slow down so much rolling inertia—on a disc wheel. Although, at this weight, don’t expect the Carbon Clincher disc to be a good choice for hilly courses.
