Strengths:    Stiffer than Crest, not much heavier

Weaknesses:    slightly heavier...

Bottom Line:   
Had a set of Crest rims for about 2 months, they were flexy as hell under my 190lb butt... just switched to these and first ride around the yard was awe inspiring. Between the internal box-section and the additional 25% spoke tension these build a MUCH stiffer wheel. If you weigh over 160lbs and are deciding between Crest and Arch, go Arch so you don't have to buy twice.

Luckily, I found a lightly used set on ebay....(where my crest's are currently)

Strengths:    Reasonable price and weight. Strong enough for me. 650B

Weaknesses:    Not as cool as carbon.

Bottom Line:   
I looked at all aspects of what a rim can do and this seems to be doing it. I have had issues mounting tires. They have stayed true and hold air reasonably well after giving a bit of time for the sealant to do its thing. I looked at carbon and they weigh about the same. The stronger ones are bigger and heavier just like aluminum. Stan makes some lighter rims but I did not see the need to shave more weight. The Crest is about 60gm a wheel or 120 gm lighter choice. That is a quarter pound. i probably have shed more weight in seat in the first 20 minutes of a ride, At 210 pounds and enjoying riding some technical downhills where I have tacoed the odd cheap wheel i feel very secure on these. With hope hubs this is a great set of wheels at a quarter the cost of the plastic gucci wheels everyone is gaga over.

ZTR Arch EX or DT Swiss Tricon M1700?

[ATTACH=CONFIG]817056[/ATTACH]Just got a new Pivot Mach 5.7 alloy and it came with DT Swiss Tricon M1700 wheels. They look and feel pretty good, but I've heard some mixed reviews since they have proprietary spokes and adjustments/repairs are not readily available at the LBS. I have a set of ZTR ... Read More »

Stans ZTR Arch EX 29er Wheelset

I'm coming off of Easton Haven carbons, and while I did have a few busted spokes and had the rear hub replaced under warranty, I'm tough on wheels and thought that they held up well for 2-1/2 years of abuse on a Santa Cruz TBc. Loved the light weight and the quick spin-up and acceleration. So, wil ... Read More »

Rant: Converting ZTR Arch EX to tubeless

Hi, I must apologise in advance for the rant, but I have to let my frustration out. A couple of years ago, I decided to treat myself to some nice wheels. I went for Chris King Hub with ZTR Arch EX hoops. The wheels are really nice. Somewhat light and stiff, nothing wrong with them, unless you ... Read More »
