The latest Carbon race rim from Planet X. These rims are very, very light: 400 grams. Hammer the competition up the climbs, jump everyone in sprints or sit easy in the bunch. These rims are quick, responsive and build up strong.

The Carbon 50 rims weigh a feather-like 400 g, you can buy them individually as rims.

A bit about the technology used to make the rims.

We use a Smooth-Wall technology production method on our new Carbon 50 rims. It makes the internal surfaces as smooth and wrinkle free as the outer surface. The result is better uniformity of the carbon layers and reduced wrinkles or voids compared to normal carbon wheel production - ultimately this means greater strength, minimum risk of stress fracture and a significantly lighter, yet stronger carbon products.

  • Carbon Tubular Rim
  • Super-stiff High Tensile TC35  Carbon
  • 50mm deep rim

    Customer service was excellent. I incorrectly ordered 2 front rims (oops!). The price was excellent and they organised the correct wheel to be sent out at the same price as the offer price despite the offer having ended.Rims are excellent quality and have been built and surviving the punishment of cyclocross.

    Excellent value for money. Strong enough to withstand the punishment of cyclocross
