Vision Trimax Carbon 40 CSI Disc review

A budget carbon alloy mix wheel set that will save you a good amount if you have £1000 to spend, but are the Vision Trimax Carbon 40 CSI Disc any good?

Cycling Weekly Verdict

At over £800 these wheels come in at a competitive price that has been hit because of the hybrid carbon/aluminium rim and although they feel bombproof, they're a bit sluggish.

The Vision Trimax Carbon 40 CSI Disc wheels are the brand's mixed terrain wheelset which is apparently suitable both for road riding as well as gravel or cyclocross, too.

Despite the name, the wheel isn't actually a pure carbon fibre rim. The wheels CSI moniker denotes that it is in fact an alloy and carbon fibre hybrid, and the rim is in fact aluminium wrapped in carbon fibre which supposedly takes on the stiffness properties of a carbon rim (and presumably the strength of aluminium for those wanting to go off-road).
