Asymmetric vs Symmetric Carbon Rims: A Comparison
Nowadays, asymmetric carbon rims are more and more popular. Why do so many people choose asymmetric carbon rims? let's analyze the advantages of them.
Please see the picture above, by improving the bracing angle of the disc wheel and balancing the spoke tension between the drive-side spokes and the non-drive-side spokes, wheelset with asymmetric carbon rims results in a stiffer, stronger, more reliable performance(laterally due to proportionally increased lateral tension). On a mountain bike wheelset with disc brakes, there is a pronounced disc shape front and rear.Balance the spoke tension, that's the advantage of asymmetric rims.
Asymmetric carbon rims use fewer spokes, reducing wheel weight. Also, the weave of the spokes is more beautiful in appearance.
Nepest provides complete asymmetric series carbon gravel rims, mtb rims and road rims for your choice.
So, what are the advantages of symmetric carbon rims?
At present, more people are still using symmetric carbon rims, since the technology is more stable. Studies have shown that the strength of symmetric carbon rims will be better than that of asymmetric carbon rims for the same weight of the rim.
