Default Carbon bicycle wheel explodes at 60kph. Video footage.

Why did it explode when the single rolled? What could have caused the single to blow out? Wasnt it clued on?

The wheel was likely not built for a tandem either. 350 - 400 pounds of rider(s)
Second the wheel did not EXPLODE it collapsed and crushed under the weight of the riders.
Do you write headlines for the STAR?
