Strengths:    Light weight rim which looks nice

Weaknesses:    Rim cracked after less than 3 months use. Have not done any big drops or jumps. Unfortunately i purchased another one and just had it built for my from rim. Now wishing I chose another brand.

Bottom Line:   
Would probably choose another rim, maybe the made in Taiwan sticker means something, especially when it comes to product integrity.

Strengths:    almost everything...

Weaknesses:    just the stickers...

Bottom Line:   
one hell of a rim, I'm a heavy rider @ 220Lbs, can't find a brand new pair of this baby so settled for a used pair...did some small jumps with it and still it's doin good for an XC application...
even fast runs on out back yard trail, and it still hold up and do it's job quite well.
hope the guys in Syncros will use a different kind of paint on this wonderful product either instead of stickers why not use paint on putting the Syncros brand name etc.

Strengths:    low weight, style, stiff

Weaknesses:    paint

Bottom Line:   
I'm a heavy rider (240 pounds) and searching white and light rims for my enduro-am bike. Initially i wished to buy the 25 Syncros model but they was out of stock and i have decided to risk and have chosen 23DS model. Wheels have been build with DT Champs 2.0 spokes and light hubs.

Initially I have varnished rims because the paint is very easily spoiled.

After 200km all what i can say i haven't lost. The rims is very strong and rigid. I already had a couple enough firm landings and thought what i will have problems with wheels, but they are ok!

Highly recommended!

Strengths:    Didn't expect much from these rims at first. Purchased them a day before a Duathlon. But these rims are really cool. Performed more then my expectations. Set up with DT spokes and an XT hub, this thing is lightweight like a feather.



Bottom Line:   
Highly Recommended; Reasonably priced; Nice white color; Sturdy all around rims

Syncros FL DS23 rims?

Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with Syncros' FL DS23 rims? I am looking to build up a new wheelset for aggressive XC-trail riding. I weigh in anywhere from 215 to 225 depending on the time of year before adding my riding gear so figure up to 240 pounds when ... Read More »
