What Can And Cannot Be Repaired On Carbon Wheels?

Whilst clearly we can repair most areas of damage on a carbon frame, can the same be said for carbon wheels? Carbon wheels are certainly a lot more subjective in terms of whether a repair is viable, but we can effect repairs to some areas.

The areas that we generally can’t repair are fracturing to the brake track (on a rim brake wheel), the bead area and spoke hole areas. As rider safety is our first priority, these specific areas are very difficult to test to the limits with non-destructive testing. As such, we do not undertake these repairs.

In terms of fracturing, we can generally repair any other area, as long as it doesn’t go into any of the above areas. We have successfully repaired many types of damage to rim fairings for example.

If you have cosmetic or other damage, we generally treat each case on its own merits. Perhaps email in with your issue first and we can advise from there.

We sometimes get requests where a brake track has warped after heat build-up going down a descent. We can generally help here but we need to ascertain how warped the brake track is and make a judgement from there.

So if you do manage to damage your carbon wheels, before you bin them or just go for a straight replacement, why not get in touch with us first to see if we can help?
