    Depends on the brake track. Allow require what you probably have already. Carbon tracks will require special blocks. These are usually supplied with the wheels or purchase at the same time. Should fit in your existing brake shoes
  • So to answer the question that I think that you are asking, if you are constantly switching between training wheels with metal alloy rims / brake tracks and carbon race wheels with carbon rims / brake tracks then you will need to keep swapping to the appropriate brake blocks.

    If you are just swapping wheels then you only need to ensure you have the correct blocks in to start with.
