Is This the Steepest Rampage Line Ever? - Video
@Geoff-Smith: That's not entirely true. All major carbon wheel manufacturers adhere to UCI safety regulations that in the event of an impact the carbon hoop cannot completely explode and must retain a [mostly] round shape. My Zipp 303 cracked, but did not explode, when I got hit by a van this spring and the Zipp rep explained their testing procedures to me when I showed him the damage. They do various "curb" tests that involve front-on collisions, lateral impacts, blowing tires off, etc and they must retain integrity and not splinter completely. Pretty interesting structural engineering in fact. Real old carbon like the tri-spoke Spinergy wheels, or bad batches of Shimano's recent Pro Trispoke (seeing a theme with tri-spoke wheels) gave carbon a bad name. Most modern carbon wheels will fail similarly or under much harsher conditions than aluminum and could be trusted. Just maybe not here in the comment section of pinkbike.
