Specific Sources for China Carbon Wheels

This is not another "are china carbon wheels reliable" thread. I am more curious about where specifically people source their's from. Im looking for specific websites or eBay sellers. Any other info would be appreciated including bad experiences with particular sellers.

alibaba.com or aliexpress.com

They are owned by the same company I believe.

X-Bike is the best supplier. According to them, they use polymethylacrilate foam (PMI foam)as a core in their wheels. They are noticeably stiffer than other Chinese wheels I've had but none of them compared to the FFWDs I eventually got.

Yea aliexpress is a legit site for china products. I have order many things from there and if you were looking to buy a set of china carbon wheels, I would trust the ones that already have feedback on them. If you need any extra help or questions, feel free to msg me!

I originally found X-bike through the "Ali sites, Aliexpress or Alibaba, I don't remember which.
I mentioned about the PMI foam because it really is a sign of a quality carbon structure I've learned. I still ride my X-bike wheels for training/fun. No problems. The same products are also sold under the name "Karbona".
