Now there are three types of carbon wheels, the clincher, tubular and tubeless types. And the clincher tires is the standard, typical and most common type. It is the most widely used type of bicycle.
The carbon clincher bicycle wheels have an outer carcass. And as the name suggests the tires fit against the rim of the wheel. As similar to car tires, the clincher type have an open bottom. Which require inner tube to operate. Such a tube is what keeps the air and it creates a solid pressure against the tire.
What use carbon clincher wheel instead of tubular and tubeless?
First, easy to use and change.
Since clinchers are quite common, most cyclists already know how to use them. The opposite situation is the use of tubular tires, which is quite tedious to use. Besides, it needs to glue to the rim. If you are using it for the first time, it may take some time to learn how to replace a the carbon tubular.
Second, it makes road fixes simple and fast.
When it comes to road repair, the simple and familiar design carbon fiber clincher type is the better choice. Fixing a clincher is easier and faster. While fixing the tubular requires some patience and time.
It is ready available.
Since carbon fiber clinchers are relatively common. You can usually find available clinchers for any bicycle tire model you are looking for. Whether you own a mountain bike, a bicycle trainer or a three-wheeled bicycle, carbon fiber clincher wheels are everywhere.
