I have read up on many recent posts (yes, the search feature is great and is my first go-to place for finding information before asking questions), but I didn't see anything specifically focused on the best carbon brake track technology in recent posts. Lots of manufacturers have brought new stuff to market in the past 6-12 months, thus my query into finding wheelset bliss.
Since it's been 3 years since my past wheel failure I'm interested to get real-world feedback on what's out there and what does and doesn't seem to work for heavier riders (~200 pounds). I've heard great things about the new Zipp layup and even a few positive comments that the Campy Hyperons might be worthwhile to check out. But what about the Mad Fibers and LW's?
In terms of importance, I'm not concerned about cost, so let's just throw that factor out the window. However, here's my ranked priority of what I need to know:
- 1. Brake track/heat dissipation capabilities
These wouldn't be used for racing (I've got some tubulars for these rides), just some nice bling to add to the bike.
