Strengths:    These are bombproof and they look sweet.

Weaknesses:    They're a little heavy, but if you're putting them on a bike where that matters you must have your reasons.

Bottom Line:   
I use these for both XC and FR. You can definitely feel the weight on climbs, but I haven't had any problem throwing them around other than that (but I'm kinda built like a gorilla, so that might be problem if you're scrawny). I got tired of breaking other rims, so I went with something beefier, and I've been extremely happy despite the extra workout. Now, on stuff I'd break other rims on, the rest of my bike complains a little, but I keep rolling on. I'd pay way more for these.

Date Reviewed: February 26, 2008

Strengths:    The strongest rims I've ever used. Used it for urban in D.C. for two years, and now for urban and Ray's indoor park for two and they have needed little truing considering the abuse they get. I'm 6'2" 240Ibs and have broken countless cranks, frames, wheels and virtually every other part on BMX and mountain bikes and these are one of the longest lasting products I've ever tried. On one of the first urban rides the spokes were completely de-tensioned at the end of the ride and I never new it-the rim was still completely true!

Weaknesses:    Very heavy, 360's spin slow and they are not as easy to throw around, so if you are a smaller, light weight rider you may be unhappy with these.

Bottom Line:   
Great for the larger urban/park/dirt jump rider if they can handle the weight, I would assume they would be equally great on a downhill course. Not for weight weenies or cross country bikes. I've been tempted to replace them with lighter weight rims but I've been burned every time I go that route, plus the rims are still rock solid.

Strengths:    great rim for the back, I havnt seen one of buddy riders fold it. its not too heavy, strong and looks nice when riding

Weaknesses:    too heavy for front wheel use.

Bottom Line:   
a great rim for the back of a downhill/freeride bike... but not good for the front... because of the weight... I personally suggest a single track in the front and a double track in the back... its what I run and I think it does me well. double track isnt a good rim for urban assualt riders, too heavy for that kind of stuff.

Strengths:    Cheep, and sideways strong, pretty wide.

Weaknesses:    Hevy, about 850g where mavic 729 is 650g.
Not really vertically strong


Bottom Line:   
Good value for money, but it's not that hard to bend them even in fullsuspension bike. If you are short on money, and don't care about the mass it's a good choice, but be aware you can get better rims.

Strengths:    A good strong rim that will take some punishment day in day out.

Weaknesses:    None, what a great rim.

Bottom Line:   
I am generally fairly hard on my gear but so far this rim has taken whatever has come its way. I nearly bent my last wheel in half in a high speed crash. I've already crash tested this one , altough not on purpose, and it came out the other side true and strong. Highly recommended.
