Strengths:    relatively light considering their width, stay true

Weaknesses:    the valvestem-hole does not accept 8,5 mm-valves, if you want to call this a weakness

Bottom Line:   
So far the rims have not let me down. Only work I had was the poor building quality of CRC - but what do you expect if the entire wheelset is EUR 284,-? The first 5-10 rides I had to retension spokes, until the nipples had bedded in. Since then no worries at all.

I take them from XC to rocky and rooty single trails. Jumps are infrequent, so my technique is poor ;-( Tires are Schwalbe Fat Albert 2.4 with 130 g-tubes. No flats up to now at 2.2 bar for a 80 kg rider.

For me these rims pose a healthy compromise between weight, price and durability. If I were a hefty freerider, I´d stick to my old welded SingleTrack and lace them to better hubs. If I´d only go for XC, I´d probably take the Equalizer23 and save some noticeable weight.

Only thing I don´t really understand is why the widest part of the rim is not on the very outside next to the tyre - if the shape would be a little bit different, the bead-width could easily rise from 21,2 mm to nearly 23. Resulting in a wider rim you could use to ride at lower tyre-pressure. Therefor only 4 out of 5 chilis overall.

Replacing a bent Sun Ringle Equalizer 29

Hello everyone, Unfortunately, I took a bit of a tumble today and bent my rear Sun Ringle Equalizer 29 rim. I've been searching for a new rim, and was wondering whether I could replace it with an EQ31 or would I have to replace the entire wheel if the rim is not identical? I don't particularl ...

Sun-Ringle Equalizer Rims (27,29 or 31)..........

Anyone running these? I searched and found the post about the dude running the XC rims laced to Tune hubs, crazy light build. Looking to build a light but strong wheel w/ either of the above widths. May play around with a 31mm rear and 29mm front. Curious to see if anyone has thrashed on th ... Read More »
