In summary, the 700C carbon fiber wheelset is suitable for long-distance riding or competition in the dirt on a flat single track or a good dirt/gravel road. The reason is that the larger the tire. Due to smaller the angle at which the tire touches the ground,  makes it easier for them to roll on imperfect surfaces. Besides,the wheelset can give more play to the advantages of rolling faster. Compared with the 650b equipped with a large-capacity wheelset.

The 700c carbon fiber wheelset provides less rolling resistance. Greater power and better rollover ability.

The 650b gravel bicycle carbon fiber wheelset has a smaller diameter and shorter spokes. This will make the wheels feel slightly harder than the 700c. The smaller diameter 650b wheelset allow you to run larger capacity tires in the same frame. This wheelset is more suitable for riding on rugged trails and rougher dirt. The 650b size shortens the wheelbase. Making the bike feel more lively and maneuverable. Differences between mountain bikes with different wheel sizes have different effects. The 650b wheel size has long been popular with touring riders. For short riders, an additional benefit is that the ratio of the 650b wheel to the small frame is larger and toe overlap and upper tube height can be reduced for better standing clearance. And this size has a variety of touring tires to choose from.

So, which type is best? For racing cars or smoother surfaces. Obviously I would recommend carbon wheelset 700c. What is more, for riders who think of gravel bikes as slash mountain bikes. Undoubtedly, I recommend trying at least one set of 650b.[/s7upf_information][/vc_column][/vc_row]
