One of the most parts of your bicycle is the wheels. Race wheels can be made out of aluminum, aluminum carbon, and all carbon.

There are also two different styles of wheels. One is a clincher tire, this type of wheel has tube inside the rubber tire. The other type of tire is the tublar, which has the tube seamed inside the tire and it is glued onto the rim. One of the positive aspects of tublar tires is they get the best grip on the road. But a negative is that they usually need to be serviced by bike shop professional.

Aluminum wheels are strong everyday wheels. Great for training no matter the weather conditions.

Aluminum carbon, and carbon wheels have a taller profile which make them more aerodynamic and faster. This type of wheels are mainly used for racing.
