The Vision Trimax T42 is a versatile alloy/carbon wheelset that's suitable for everyday use as well as racing.
Okay, first the essential info... when Vision describe these as 'carbon alloy clinchers' they mean that they're alloy with a carbon surface on the deep section of the welded rim. They call this Carbon Structural Integration, or CSI for short, and explain it like this:
'Once an aluminum component is wrapped in carbon fibre, the fibre becomes an integral part of the structure and increases the overall stiffness of the component.'
So the whole of the rim, including the braking surface, is alloy but the V-section is covered with carbon fibre for reinforcement. Of course, the unidirectional carbon finish doesn't hurt in terms of giving a high-end look.
Q: Tell us how the product performed overall when used for its designed purpose
A: They put in a solid all-round performance. They're designed to be versatile and that means that there are going to be compromises, but if you want some fit-and-forget aero wheels, these are worthy of serious consideration.
Q: Tell us what you particularly liked about the product
A: The balance: good aerodynamics, reasonable weight, predictable braking and handling.
Q: Tell us what you particularly disliked about the product
A: Any weight saving would be welcome but, as I said, these are a reasonable weight for the rim depth and price.
