    Strengths:    Light for there class and fairly strong too. black ano is a friend of mine.

    Weaknesses:    Pin joined, not the best for tubeless systems

    Bottom Line:   
    Great rim for the all mountain rider and the talented dirt jumper. If you have the ability to ride smoothly you can ride them on certain DH tracks without worry.
    This rim is a mid weight mid wide option. WTB offers steps up and down in size/ weight. It's up to you to decide if you can get away with 'em.

    Strengths:    Burly, Very Strong, Stiff, Maintanince Free

    Weaknesses:    Weight

    Bottom Line:   
    Whenever I see a pair of DeeMax's, I always want to save up and get them, but I forget that my current wheelset is basically bombproof. My WTB Dual Duty's have held up through EVERYTHING. They're a very strong and durable rim, for not that much money.

    Recomended for Freeride and Downhill. The only con is the set weighs a lot. It doesn't bother me too much however.

    5 Chili Value: Can't beat it (Not even Rhyno Lites)
    5 Chili Performance: Holds its own, does everything it should.

    Strengths:    Strength, weight, and color.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Great for dirt jumping and trail riding. I have been riding these rims on my slalom and freeride bikes for a couple years now, and have never had any serious problems. They also make an awesome looking pair of wheels when built up with black spokes, nipples, and hubs. If you are having problems bending rims, or are looking to give your bike a new look, I recommend trying out a pair of these rims.

    Date Reviewed: October 5, 2002

    Strengths:    Light enough (590g), black color, high profile, reinforced eyelets, price is OK

    Weaknesses:    PINNED SEAM, only come in 32h

    Bottom Line:   
    Decent rim. Stronger than a 32h Rhyno lite because of the tall profile. Rhyno's tend to get flat spots really easily because they are quite thin (distance between both walls). WTB has made a decent rim but they don't WELD THE SEAM! I saw a brand new rim on which you could see daylight through the seam!

    My rim has held up well for trials- I run 38psi and a Tioga factory DH rim and have yet to get a pinch flat or even phase the rim.

    The only thing I am worried about is the seam. If I come down on a concrete corner very hard on the seam, I can imagine it might bend there. Welded seams are the way to go- look at the Mavic D521- it is a very similar rim (WTB copied them) but even better with a welded seam.

    Overall a decent rim at a decent price. Could be better if they welded the seam and offered it in 36h- I'd be willing to pay another $10 for those features.

    Strengths:    30mm. Perfect size for a freeride rim.
    Wilderness Trail Bikes quality


    Weaknesses:    uh...

    Bottom Line:   
    I've just built this wheelset up and they're going on the bike today. From my past experience with WTB, I know these are going to hold up. I've been running the SpeedDiscs on my freeride bike for the last year and have no problems with dings or dents. With suspension protecting them, it's rare that I damage a rim anymore. Having a wider, larger surface area makes a large 2.4 or 2.5 tire fit the wheel alot better, and the footprint feels more secure, hooking up longer and inspiring confidence. This is the perfect Freeride rim for anyone who wants something that will take abuse without resorting to a full on heavy DH only setup.
