Brakes are repeatedly applied and released to test the brake track durability and heat resistance.
A rim is placed in the test rig and with a load of 100kg. It is then rotated constantly at 12.5kph, while the brakes are engaged and disengaged at a set pressure every 3 seconds. Rims should endure 3000 cycles of braking with no sign of failure to meet industry standards.
This tests how well the rim can withstand the heat generated from braking on the carbon track.

I have a pair of Knight Composites 35 Clinchers with almost 20K miles on them and lots of riding here in Southern Colorado and I've never had an issue with the wheels. I delaminated a pair of 303's descending on my local ride in 2014. I think any wheel company can have a bad day and soon enough, that day will come to Alto as well.
