Let's face it, carbon rims are sexy, they're stiff, they're light and they're fast. What they don't always do is brake particularly well in some conditions, which in some situations may not always work to your benefit. That's why Vuelta introduced the Corsa Carbon 50 LE road bike wheelset. It's still a carbon rim, but has a bonded alloy brake track for improved stopping performance in the rain, on extreme downhills, and a few other situation where aluminum just does a little better than carbon.
NOTE: Only use carbon-specific brake pads (included) with these rims. While the brake track is alloy, it is bonded directly to carbon which can still build up heat if regular brake pads are used.
