I spend the day testing and comparing a set of deep section carbon wheels and a set of traditional aluminium road bike wheels Yoeleo discount coupon - 🤍🤍yoeleobike.com/discount/GIANPAOLOBASILE?ref=m9vJRFcn Yoeleo C60 Pros vs Fulcrum Racing Zeros The testing including a flat test around a closed track, and a climbing test on the One in 20 Strava Segment out in Melbourne's Dandenong Ranges. Prretty interesting comparison - Results at the end of the video.

280 watts average only gave you 22km average speed?
Either power meter or speedometer is doing sth wrong i think.
280W should give at least 30km/hr avg i think.
I put on my first carbon wheels this week and did a test ride of 40mi in NYC traffic.
It did make a difference from my stock wheels imo. I pretty much got from South Brooklyn to the Bronx zoo and back with very little fatigue. I don’t know if I was faster (3 hours round trip), but it sure as hell was easier than when I’ve had my stock wheels on.
Really interesting. I have noticed a clear improvement in average speed over my 100mi rides after switching to carbon (Reynolds AR58) from the stock aluminum shimano wheels. Difference of just over 1mph faster. Riding a Felt VR40 aluminum frame bike w/Tiagra Disc 2x10.
If I didn’t see the video, I wouldn’t know wth a “boik” is.
I completely agree with you, first buy a power meter it will make you a better..."athlete" on a shorter time. I'm getting the wheels next, and I'm definitely going for the fulcrum racing Zeros. Thank you for this breakdown.
Awesome. Good honest advice, and nicely presented. Thanks for your work on this clip.
I'm really late seeing this, but better late than never. I recently had the opportunity to demo a new bike with all the latest and greatest. In all honesty it didn't feel any faster than my aluminum Trek Domane with aluminum wheels and rim brakes. On club rides we average 17 to 19 mph. At these modest speeds I don't think all this aerodynamic technology makes much difference.
This is the video I was looking for. Thanks for that. I'm using the Alloy DT Swiss R470 and being very tempted to upgrade to a carbon wheel to get faster. However it seems the speed benefits of carbon wheels are not much as compared to price point.
I dare not ride on China made carbon wheels
Were similar tyres used on both wheels while testing?
I love these tests of the new tech. So far, disc brakes, carbon wheels, and tubeless tires are all hyped by manufacturers to buy new tech. The results are that they do not perform better enough to warrant the cost, at least for the non racer.
thumbs down b/c you didn't use the same tires. gotta use the same tires to compare rims
Very good! Thank you! You have the decency to compare an excellent aluminum wheelset with a good carbon wheelset! This is quite fair! I watched a video before yours by a famous American Criterium racer comparing a set of Shimano rs100 (crap) with a Bontrager 60mm carbon wheelset!!!!!!! Totally BS!
Great video, but I think when you compare two types of wheels, to make the comparison more fair, you should test the wheels on the same tires. Besides, nice work!
Almost didn’t recognise hawthorn valedrome in the sun
All I can say is I have studied the "carbon vs aluminum wheels" issue quite a bit and this is literally the first video I have found that didn't favor the carbon aero wheels.
In the real world, the lighter wheel will always come out ahead. Aero doesn't help on a climb. No matter what the material the rim weight counts.
overall weights is the matter Great Video !Thanks👍👍
Good Honest review thanks 👍
