Submitted by Roflat85footdrop a Downhiller from De Beque Co, USA

Date Reviewed: December 8, 2009

Strengths:    Rofl at the 85 foot dropers. Non nonchalantly hitting the 85 footers. "product good for HARDCORE crosscountry with occasional 85 foot drop". Really good rims though for my review. I have taken some 5' and ten foot drops and small simple park jumps and stuff, held up really nice. Cased a few street curbs too, not even a ding with the tubless maxxis hookworm high press combo.

Weaknesses:    Colorful sticker gets sun and water faded after awhile of use. Really none though.

Bottom Line:   
Good rims, good price, colorful sticker.... Buy these.

Strengths:    Strong.. Rock solid..... smooth ..... Look great...

Weaknesses:    Heavy if with the wrong tire...

horrifying to get heavy downhill tires of off, if there is a flat.. had to stop using downhill tires for regular use...


Bottom Line:   
Have had them for several years... A lighter set of rims might be interesting.. However.. for jumping curbs all day.. They have held up the test of time..

Strengths:    mag 30's are bombproof :|
and look madd awsomeee


Weaknesses:    nonee

Bottom Line:   
these wheels are crazy.. they look awsome, and i cant do anything to wreck them.. my buddies made a 8 foot stepdown, and im not the greatest at them lol, so i tried to hit it and sketched out, ended up landing with the bars sideways and cracked and bent my fork to the side (2005 dirtjam comps) the only damage on the wheel was a slight.. less than 1mm warp.. but its great cause i got a new fork :D

Strengths:    Where do i start....
Its a tank, you can go off anything knowing that the rims will not taco or untrue, you just know they will be able to take it.
It handles anything you throw at it, drops, jumps, gaps, etc..
I love it, it looks rad, its beefy, its indestructible!


Weaknesses:    Hmmm, getting tires on maybe, i didnt have that much of a problem, but it takes a whole lot of effort to get the last part of tire on.

Bottom Line:   
If you want a rim where you can trust going off big drops, jumps, get this one, it will not fail you!!
Its pretty cheap for a dh rim, kind of heavy but what the hell its a dh rim lol.
If you get it, you will not be disapointed!!
I LOVE MY MAG 30S!!

Weaknesses:    Get it built up right and it will be fine

Bottom Line:   
To Joel:
If it is such a amazingly unbendable, bombproof rim, then why was it bent of a 10 foot drop? Yea i'm whining about it because i thought i was supposed to be a EXTREME FREERIDING rim. If you ave a problem with that the e-mail me, otherwise before you start blowing crap out of your mouth, find out the facts.

Strengths:    - Strength
- Sidewall
- Looks sick
- Lightweight compared to my bombshell fatboy


Weaknesses:    - Sidewall can make it extremely difficult to get tires on / off


Bottom Line:   
Good rim so far. It's held up great since I got it. It's a little tough getting tires on / off, but no biggie. The only thing I really worry about with this rim is getting it all scratched... they are beautiful! I would recommend this product to anyone looking to ride downhill or freeride.

---- TO THE PERSON BELOW ME -----

No rim will taco on a 10 foot drop unless you case it bad. So I image that's what you did and now you are just whining about it.

Date Reviewed: July 15, 2005

Strengths:    Holds up well for the first while.

Weaknesses:    At c.o.p there is a 8-10 fot drop/gap. I hit it and it bent the living hell out of this rim. I cant believe i spend 120 to get this rim done up and have it bend easily off a simple 10 foot drop.


Bottom Line:   
IF ANYONE HAS A SUGGESTION ON A RIM THAT YOU CAN HIT A 10 FOOT DROP ON AND IT HOLDS UP REALLY WELL FOR UNDER 200$ CAN, PLEASE E-MAIL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
