What are the advantages of carbon fiber rims?

1. Carbon fiber rim is lighter

       Carbon fiber is a new type of fiber material with high strength and high modulus fiber with carbon content above 95%. The quality is lighter than that of metal aluminum, but its strength is higher than that of steel, and it has corrosion-resistant and high-modulus properties. It is an important material with excellent mechanical properties in defense military and civil applications. The carbon fiber wheel hub is designed in two pieces. The rim is made of carbon fiber. The spokes are forged lightweight alloy with forged rivets, which is about 40% lower than the weight of the same size.

2, carbon  road  rim higher strength

      The density of carbon fiber is 1/2 of that of aluminum alloy, and its strength is 8 times that of aluminum alloy. It is known as the king of black gold. Carbon fiber technology not only makes the body lightweight, but also strengthens the body. Cars made of carbon fiber weigh only 20% to 30% of ordinary steel cars and have a hardness of 10 times.

3, carbon fiber rims are more energy efficient

      According to relevant experts, the use of carbon fiber hubs to reduce the unsprung mass of 1kg can be equivalent to reducing the sprung mass of 10kg. For every 10% reduction in vehicle weight, it can reduce fuel consumption by 6% to 8% and reduce emissions by 5% to 6%. In the same oil situation, a car can open 50 kilometers per hour, which helps to improve. Acceleration and braking performance of the car.

4, carbon road rims more durable performance

     The carbon fiber composite material has stable constituent elements, and is more resistant to acid and corrosion than metals. It also means that the designer does not need to consider the performance degradation caused by corrosion during the use of the product, which also provides more possibilities for the weight reduction and performance improvement of the vehicle.

5, carbon fiber rims better control

The carbon fiber wheel has a good shock absorption effect, with more controllability and higher comfort. After the car is replaced with lightweight carbon fiber hubs, the suspension response speed is significantly improved and the acceleration is faster and easier due to the reduced unsprung mass.
