I have regular mavic wheels on my bike, but I was wondering what are the true advantages of carbon wheels like Zipps or Mavic Carbones ? - I would like to upgrade my wheels. I think the carbon wheels look very sharp but I want to understand the mechanical advantage (if any) of them.
I was told at my LBS that the carbon wheels are heavier than normal wheels and thus rotate more (have more momentum).
What are somethings to consider when choosing the carbon wheels?
In addition, what are the advantages of a tubeless wheels is any.
