BOYD 44's have proven themselves to be the perfect do-it-all wheelset for my local terrain. 2.5 years and thousands of miles since purchase, they have exceeded every expectation. They're light for climbing, stiff for sprinting, and aero for maintaining speed. Best of all, they're still rolling true and trouble-free, just as if they were new.2x Ironman
BOYD wheels have a reputation that is well earned. Owning a set of 44/60 staggered carbon clinchers, I've found them to be the most versatile wheels I've ever owned. Their tubeless rim profile has performed flawlessly, and the deep section clinchers perform exceedingly well in the heavy South Jersey crosswinds. My BOAD wheels have proven to be lightweight, durable, AND a great value!Financial Instruments Analyst
The wheels will come with our Onyx brake pads which work great. A substitution brake pad is the Swissstop Black Prince. However, avoid the Swissstop yellow brake pads as they can leave residue on the rims that will create a lot more heat build up.
Yes, carbon fiber rims have advanced quite a bit in the past decade. With high temperature resins, heat build up on carbon fiber rims is not an issue like it used to be.
The wet weather braking is not going to be as good as dry weather, however the textured brake track helps a lot with stopping power. You will notice the first revolution of the wheel wicks the water off and then the braking starts to kick in.
