Strengths:    Still true

Weaknesses:    rear pinch flats, heavy

Bottom Line:   
I've had a couple of nice crashes on my hardtail and these Rims have never strayed out of true. Wish I could say the same for my cheap@ss brake rotors that seem to warp if I look at them funny. ...
Rear tends to pinch flats when jumping a high curb doesn't go off as planned. First two times I took it as I didn't have the pressure high enough.. third time I looked at the curb and said to myself "oh, you're going to make me flat" and then laughed while changing my tube out. Never had a problem on the trail, just street.
Frickn burly.
Value? They came with the frame i bought secondhand.
If you need something to take a beating, these'll work. Just keep an extra tube in your pack.

Strengths:    Looks good, is very weak.

Weaknesses:    Weld point. Rim split after 2 days riding, don't buy is a waste of money if you intend on doing any form of downhilling.

Bottom Line:   
A waste of time, spend a little more money and get the next rim up.

Date Reviewed: October 10, 2008

Strengths:    Good overall geometry and weight for designed use.

Weaknesses:    needs welded joint

Bottom Line:   
The wheel works great for AM and smooth FR remember this rim does not have welded joint so if your going to do stair sets and gaps make sure you got some heaver tires, tubes, spokes and hub. The rim is great if you understand and build the wheel for what its designed for AM. If you wanted to DH this baby gunna have to double up in other areas.

Date Reviewed: March 21, 2008

Strengths:    Strong & reliable

Weaknesses:    A little too heavy

Bottom Line:   
these rims came on my sx trail 06, and after 2 years of pure abuse it needed the front wheel trueing up because off a slight kick on the rim. Great set of rims just a litttle on the heavy side.

Submitted by Coco a Downhiller from San Jose, Costa Rica

Date Reviewed: January 11, 2008

Strengths:    Look pretty nice

Weaknesses:    No strength at all... Too many pinch flats with them

Bottom Line:   
Horrible experiences with them. First time out, flatted pretty easily.

I am not yet doing pretty big stuff like jumps, gaps and drops, however I am starting to DH pretty fast, and myself being 195 pounds, I need something strong. These rims ARE NOT.

Last time I rode, was going downhill kinda fast, missed a line and got into a 1 ft hole at speed... And COMPLETELY tacoed the rim.

I mean, I was a decent hit, but the rim completely destroyed itself, could be because I'm big, but combining that with the propensity to pinch flat, I would not recommend these rims to anybody...

Strengths:    its mavic looks good holds a big tire

Weaknesses:    its poop i say poop! just like the guy below me said, i took a 6 foot drop and landed perfectly and cracked the rim and the front rim 2 months later cracked on the weld the mavic 321 is 8 billion times better

Bottom Line:   
rim is poop, get any other mavic just not the 325 its junk. cracks, welds come apart, pinches tubes, not strong enough go for the mavic 321 if u can find it or any other mavic

Submitted by daniel lorek a Cross Country Rider from san diego, ca

Date Reviewed: January 8, 2007

Weaknesses:    Cracked the rear wheel right at the weld from a 10 ft double. the landing wasn't really that hard, must have been right at the sup weld.

Bottom Line:   
i've been riding for many years but only recently got into jumping. although this wasn't the best landing, i dont' think it was hard enough to crack a rim.
