If you’ve been on the fence about carbon wheels, Race Face might have the answer with their new Carbon Confidence Guarantee. We certainty haven’t needed it after a season on the Rally R carbon wheels, but if we did manage to somehow crack a rim it looks like the new program would cover it.
Available to anyone who purchases a set of carbon Race Face wheels from a Race Face dealer, the Guarantee will cover them for two years – no matter how they get damaged. That covers the complete wheel down to the rim, spokes, hub, and even bearings.
We’ve been smashing the Next R component group since Sea Otter, and so far there’s been absolutely no need for the guarantee. There have certainly been a few heavy strikes to the wheels with a few nicking the graphics, but other than that they have remained impressively solid. The same can be said for the crankset and the handlebar- though I did chop the bar down to a more manageable 780mm from 800mm. Even without crank boots, the carbon arms are still in good shape giving the impression of a complete group that is probably overbuilt for most riders.
The result is a carbon component group that is comfortingly durable for even the toughest rides, made even better with the new Carbon Confidence Guarantee for the carbon wheels.
