1. Lighter and faster
Lighter wheels will be more responsive to the rider and easier to maneuver while riding. One thousand grams will not give you an overwhelming advantage but you will notice a little more comfort and control in your ride.
Carbon rims are made either by first lacing carbon strips into effective weight supporting lattice patterns and then heat treated with a resin bonding agent to form hard carbon shapes. Or the resin is added to a carbon composite and then molded into shape similar to 3D printing with a hot steel mold or press.
These processes make it far easier to construct unique aerodynamic shapes as opposed to aluminum which can really only be pushed through steel dies to create the shape of the rim. In the past this made aluminum clinchers more reliable because the entire rim was one solid shape as opposed to older carbon rims where the peak (clincher part) of the rim was added after the original shape of the rim was molded.
3. Smoother and more rigid ride
Carbon will reduce flex while still absorbing road vibration. That coupled with it already being a lighter construction material, engineers can work with more spokes and rigid lacing patterns so that it can outperform aluminum in any circumstance. Every major tour winner for a long time has won using carbon. The only drawback is cost.

Advantage of carbon wheels
The biggest appeal of upgrading to a carbon fibre wheel is the aerodynamic advantage over a box section aluminium rim. There is plenty of wind tunnel data (if you want to believe it) from the leading manufacturers showing that carbon wheels reduce drag significantly. If you’re racing, whether against the clock in a time trial, or in a road race, carbon deep section wheels will make a noticeable difference at higher speeds.
Building a deep section rim in aluminium would result in a very heavy wheel. Carbon is simply much lighter and is the reason it's the material of choice for aero wheels. The lightest carbon fibre wheels have tubular rims, and can be exceptionally light: Lightweight does a set that are 940g for the pair! If you’re a climber and want your bike to be as light as possible, carbon fibre tubulars are the way to go, provided you’re happy to glue your tyres to the rims. The stiffness to weight ratio is also better than aluminium wheels.
Ride quality and performance.
Good carbon fibre wheels can transform the ride of a bike. Stiffness is greater than an aluminium wheelset so for powerful riders, sprinting and out-of-the-saddle climbing, this attribute can make a clear difference to how the bike feels, with a more responsive nature. Some carbon fibre wheels also provide a smoother ride over rough road surfaces as well.
They look cool
Don't underestimate how important this is. You’ve got to admit, there’s just something undeniably appealing about the way a sleek road bike looks when rolling on a pair of deep section carbon wheels. While many might not admit it, many invest in carbon wheels mainly because of the appearance.
