    CR9 Full Carbon Fiber wheels by Carbon Revolution

    There is a new wheel manufacturer on the block, Carbon Revolution.
    They make one-piece Carbon Fibre wheels.
    The wheels are not cheap at all.
    With a $15.000,- pricemark they can be called expensive.
    But what they promise is awesome.
    A 19 x 8.5 front wheel weighs only 6.9 kg, rearwheels 19 x 12 only 8.1 kg.
    That is 40% lighter than a forged aluminum wheel.

    I don't trust a full carbon wheel. It's a cool idea but I'll spend less and stick with metal that bends and does not shatter.

    The % is small but if you want the lightest and are not going for magnesium this is it.

    I don't know on the testing, warranty, or whatever else. Sure look cool though....
