    Strengths:    EXTREMELY STRONG! AWESOME LOOKS! NOTHING IS BETTER!

    Weaknesses:    NONE! Some people say HEAVY, Give me a break if you were going for light and industructable get real 710 grams isnt much for a wheel that you may never have to be trued. My 6.1 Dt Swiss's were 610 grams but for Urban riding cant take the abuse, they dent instead of going out of true!!

    Bottom Line:   
    I built with RED TorX nipples and their rad in 36 hole! I originally bought the Atomlab Triple butted spoked which I whould strongly recommend AGAINST, The colors are Plated on and will rub off when you touch them with your fingers. But DT SWISS SPOKES and never have a problem again!
    The rims are the BEST rims I have ever owned, I am a person who likes lots of color, High end parts and LITTLE wieght! These are not the lightest but they are well worth the additional wieght!

    Strengths:    Absolutly indestructable. I've taken these things off of a 10' drop to flat and no flatspots or warps. It even fell of the bike rack at 55 mph and I was able to rebuild it back to straight. Atomic Labratories means what the rimstrip says. They are tough as hell.

    Weaknesses:    none at all

    Bottom Line:   
    by far the best bang for your buck. 55 bucks for just a rim from their web site. and the 200 bucks for the whole wheelset was a steal. And anyone looking for some bad ass urban assault/dirt jumper rims best way to go.

    Strengths:    Strong. Pretty much the main thing you look for.
    Then after that, you can get them in 24" and they're V-brake compatible. Me likes that.


    Weaknesses:    None. People say weight but it's really not that bad.

    Bottom Line:   
    I've been using these things for 3 full seasons now, they have been built on a few sets of hubs for different bikes, they were the first set of wheels I ever built myself. They have been hit hard riding downhill, landed on completely sideways riding street/park, and genrally abused as much as I'm going to abuse a wheel and somehow they're still fairly straight. I've trued them very minorly in 3 years.
    They're pinned together, but you know what? It works. The seam hasn't split at all since I started riding them.
    When I get another pair of rims for street after these crap out I'm getting the same again.

    For how long they have lasted and how much faith I have in them they're getting the highest rating.

    Strengths:    they are ok on the front but will never run another on the rear!!!!

    Weaknesses:    they flat spot relly easly, side of rime folds in, heavy but im used to it, true them after every ride, they are just pure crap, and im a pritty smooth rider!!

    Bottom Line:   
    the rims are crap if you run them on the back of your bike, i use it for every thing from dh-urban-xc and even on xc rides they get messed up and i am a smooth rider for the most part and they are way to expensive!!!!

    Bottom Line:   
    I have been running these rims for almost 4 years. Taken everything I have and still came back for moe. All my bikes except for my 29'er run Aomlabs and it is for a reason - they are tough, they take whatever you put them through and they are dependable, at a good price too!

    Strengths:    looks cool.

    Weaknesses:    no weld at the seam. and kind of heavy

    Bottom Line:   
    the wheel lasted for about 2 months, there is no weld at the seam so it started to split at the seam after a few stair gaps. and it dents easily. i would recommend arrow racing rims to anyone who likes to hit big stair gaps, drops, and jumps.

    Submitted by Steve a Downhiller from Colorado

    Date Reviewed: January 2, 2005

    Strengths:    Stiff. Tough. Fairly wide for good tire profile. Tough Finish. Cheap.

    Weaknesses:    More prone to pinch flats. Tall sidewalls fold in. Very heavy.

    Bottom Line:   
    Even running recommended tire pressure, I folded the sidewall in on my front 26" Trailpimp while using a 2.7" DH tire with DH tube. The sidewall folded completely in so that at first it looked like I had lost that part of the wheel. With the same tires and tubes that I had run without a single flat on a doublewide last year, I experienced numerous flats. I bent the sidewall back out (it cracked where it had bent but stayed in place) and rode it the rest of the summer. The rim is still true and I'll keep riding it until it dies.

    Strengths:    very sturdy

    Weaknesses:    heavy, dint bother me thouht

    Bottom Line:   
    i used this all summer long and i trued itm abye twice.
    it would only go slitly out of true after racing and droping 10 foot drops amd such. thiswas aproblem though, the spokes would get loss, but since the rim was so strong it would go out of ture, and the spokes would pop my tubs. so be sure and manuly cheek the spokes for need of truing, i learned this after 3 flats in a day.
