I don't need to concern myself with grinding huge chunks out of the rim when I brake heavily in the wet anymore which in itself is a huge bonus. From what I've read, delaminating carbon rims is fairly unlikely however carbon rims and rim brakes on a steep descent, wet or dry, doesn't fill me with coonfidence. I have no concerns ripping down Donna Buang, Baw Baw or Hotham at full throttle on the discs, knowing that the chances of anything failing are virtually nil.
This is definitely a bonus associated with discs. Won't be putting carbon rims on my roadie until such time as I go to a disc brake frame.
