Do you drool over carbon? Dream of it? If so, C6Cycling is for you. Founder, Brian Friend is releasing an all new design for 2014. Hand built in Colorado, Carbon Six Rims are full carbon fiber--and not just a fairing covering a conventional aluminum rim. Molded to exacting standards by their factory in Taiwan their carbon clinchers are reinforced to allow higher pressures of race tires and safely carrying riders up to 250lbs. Since the rims are full carbon fiber they include special carbon brake pads that are designed to provide better braking performance under all riding conditions. Amazingly fast and responsive. C6 has more in store for Colorado. See the press release below.
