Strengths:    Uber Light for what ya getting, double eyleted for increased rigidity and resonably strong.

Weaknesses:    non

Bottom Line:   
had a set of rims lying around at work, i thought id give em a go. when built [by yours truly] they went together quite nicly and easy enought to tune up. they have taken the punishment of 4x riding thus far.

resonable weight, strength, price. cant go to wrong.

if you have them hand built, [same to be said about any wheel] it will last you a long time.

Date Reviewed: June 18, 2007

Strengths:    Relatively low weight and inexpensive. And they are white, white is soo hot right now.

Weaknesses:    Very weak eyelets, I've managed to detension them several times and now the eyelets are actually ripping out of the rim. Noice one. If you arent very aggressive and want a rim that looks pretty rad but dont have the coin for some DT Swiss Enduro 1750's you might like, but if you are a serious downhiller looking for something to take punishments like the DEE MAX will look somewhere else. These were recently replaced with a set of Sun Ringl'e A.D.D.s no complaints on these yet but I'll post a review once I get some time on them.

Bottom Line:   
Save your cash unless you really like retensioning your wheels after every ride. Great for all mountain (unless your a weight weenie or a hack) not so great for DHing.

Date Reviewed: May 30, 2007

Strengths:    Good racing Rim will hold up to a fare amount of abuse and hard to buckle but not a hucker rim.

Weaknesses:    Easy to dint and flatspot if doing drops to flat

Bottom Line:   
Awsome rim, have done huge drops and landings onto stairs but if landing to flat go with somthing else as the flat spot and highspot really easy. For the same pric you would be better off going with some sunringle intense mag 30's or save your money for some mavic 729's

Syncros DPS 32 rims?

After a couple of big casings last season I banged up my Mavic 325 disc pretty good, and I was thinking about picking up a set of the DPS 32's. I thought the 325's held up about as good as I could expect. Any thoughts on the Syncros?Read More »

Maxxis tubeless rim strips for Syncros DPS 32 rims?

Hello, After having had 2 flats in 3 rides lately (1 puncture and 1 pinch), I decided to convert my Syncros DPS 32 rims to tubeless with the Maxxis rim strips. This also because of very positive experiences with my Mavic CrossMaxx tubeless wheels. I have no shop in the neighbourhood having the Max ... Read More »
