Ritchey SuperLogic Carbon 46 Clinchers Pro Review

Feature Articles Pro Review Wheels

Bottom Line
This is quite possibly the best all around wheelset currently available. They are very light, yet extremely stiff for climbing and descending. And the moderate 46mm rim depth provides a clear improvement for time trials and triathlons while not sacrificing safety and handling in windy conditions. And best of all they provide all of these performance gains as clinchers.

This wheels epitomize the spirit of this project by providing incredible performance gains and significant weight savings with no real sacrifices.

    “Braking
    Carbon rims are notorious for mediocre braking performance. Because they are harder than alloy rims, they build up more friction and require more effort to stop.”

    I think you mean that they build up more heat in the pads because they don’t dissipate the heat as well as alloy rims. If they built up more friction, they would brake better than alloy rims.

    The swiss stop yellow pads I have found to be amazing. I have used them on an Xlab 48MM carbon wheelset and the stopping power and brake modulation ability has been superb. The only hassle is when switching over to alloy training wheels and having to switch over to other pads – if only to keep aluminum grit out of the carbon pads (I have found that the carbon pads indeed work very well on the alum rims too, but you don’t want to end up gouging your nice carbon rims).
