Which DCB Carbon Wheels Are Right For Me?

In the world of Mountain Biking, everyone is always looking for the next upgrade. What is the newest technology? What is the best upgrade for my bike? There is no doubt that many would say that wheels are the best upgrade for any Mountain Bike. Particularly, carbon wheels.To get more news about mtb bike Wheels, you can visit zpebicycle official website.

Carbon wheels are light, and they are light where it counts... rotating mass. You will be faster on carbon wheels!

Carbon wheels are strong, and they stay true longer and are much stiffer than aluminum rim wheels. Carbon wheels will be lower maintenance!

Carbon wheels are wide, and this means you can run wider tires and run lower pressures for better feel and cornering. Carbon wheels will make your bike feel better!

The bad part is, carbon wheels can be expensive, but the good news is, we at DIY Carbon Bikes are here for you to find some amazing light carbon wheels at an affordable price. When choosing MTB wheels on our website, the first question you want to address is diameter. If you already have a 29er bike, then you will need 29er wheels, but if you have a 27.5 bike, you will need 27.5 wheels. If you are building a bike, you must decide if you want a 29er or 27.5 frame, then you can select wheels to match.

The next question you want to address is the type of wheel for your riding conditions and style. We offer three types of wheels: XC/Trail, AM/Enduro, and Ultralight wheels. XC/Trail and Ultralight wheels are wheels that are best for rocky and rooty trail conditions and normal to small sized jumps and drops. AM/Enduro rims are meant for the gnarliest conditions and big jumps and drops. If you weigh over 260ibs or have a history of destroying rims, AM/Enduro rims will be better. If you weigh under 220ibs and are looking for the biggest race advantage on a largely dedicated race bike, then the Ultralight wheels might be best. For most others, XC/Trail are the best.

Once you have selected the diameter and type of wheel, the wheels are split by hub. All of our hubs use the same rims, but all of our rims can use different hubs. In order to choose your wheelset, you will want to choose which hub you want them built up on.

The most affordable hubs are the Novatec hubs. The hubs are still very quality and also light, but are not quite as low maintenance and high engagement as other hubs. If you are looking for a quality build at the best price, Novatec hubs may be the hubs for you.d

The most low maintenance hubs are the DT Swiss 350 hubs. These hubs are light, high quality, and easy to swap out parts. There is also an option for an upgraded high engagement ratchet. DT Swiss hubs though are a bit more expensive. If you have a history of breaking hubs, or just want the strongest and low maintenance hubs, DT Swiss 350 hubs may be the hubs for you.

Both the Fastace Hubs and the Bitex hubs are the best hubs for high engagement. Both of the hubs offer 3 degrees of engagement, with 120 rotating points. High engagement hubs are good for technical climbing where there is frequent short bursts to overcome an obstacle. In these situations the high engagement hubs allow quick, short, pedal bursts without pedal strikes. The Fastace hubs are a little heavier and less expensive; the Bitex hubs are a little lighter and more expensive. If your looking for the highest engagement hubs at the best price, Fastace or Bitex hubs may be the hubs for you.
