Does anyone know the difference between the Corima carbon range of rims between 2016 and 2017. The only difference I can see is the rim width for 2016 is 23mm whilst 2017 is 26mm. Quiet a jump to fit the newer larger tyres these days, I still run 23's or 24's..... just my preference.

Is there any difference in braking surface perhaps? The weave stays the same at either 3K or 12K carbon.

There have been so much advances in carbon braking surfaces in the last 2-3 years, I'm wondering if Corima have done so for 2017!

Hello - we have the new 2017 rims arriving, they are the same brake finish. 3k weave on all rims now so you can mix depths easily. I have not had any negative feedback on braking performance. The key difference is the new wider profile and revised aerodynamic shape. I'll be posting a pair of 58s shortly on my Insta feed.

Dear Sir,

Yes, you're right, the different is the tire section of the rim which have changed from 22.6mm to 26mm.

You can use 25mm clincher on rim 22.6mm, just be careful with the maximum air pressure. So, please find enclosed below our user's manual with advices about tire air pressure.

Best regards.

I brought 47mm clinchers in Holland half price :wink: with carbon hubs, I put on some Tufo 23mm race tyres. I've ridden about 6 rides, most long and I must say they are super light for a clincher, fast, rigid and seem very reliable it seems like, hubs are super smooth. You know the likes of Enve and Zipp come out with their new wind resistant technologies and new braking surfaces, but probably Corima are just as good if not better, it's no wonder Nibali won most of his races on Corima, the braking is fantastic. I know its early days but my 1st impressions I rate highly.

May I ask what brake pad you using? I found the Corima cork brake pad pretty terrible, especially in wet.

I'm using Corima red pads, they seem fine. I haven't tested in the wet yet.

From Corima documentation, tip (this may help):

Cleaning brake pads: These brake pads need
regular maintenance. To remove glazing on your
CORIMA brake pads, clean them regularly with a
sand paper.
