Strengths:    Super stiff. Light AND bomber. Made in America. Cool technology. Three year warrantee. Confidence inspiring.

Weaknesses:    None yet. Except for price perhaps. Tubeless set up from the factory costs too much. It hurts to add even more cost to a wheel set like this.

Bottom Line:   
After riding a set of these on a demo bike, I was hooked. I can't remember when a part of my bike, when changed, effected the entire ride quality like this. Take my advice, don't ever try a set unless you have the cash burn. You have been warned! :)

When I was building up a new bike I lowered the component group to free up some money to purchase these wheels. I did this on the advice of Dave Turner at Turner bikes as well as my bike shop. So glad I did. I went tubeless with the DT Swiss 240s hubs.

When I first rode these wheels I found myself over steering into the corners. Over correcting until I got used to the stiffness. I am a Clydesdale at 6'4" 225 lbs rtr and I was flexing my nice Stan's Flow wheel set without even knowing it. If you are a bigger guy like me, you can now lean it over in the corners and the only thing that will flex will be your tires. Tire pressures I normally use have also changed. I actually ran my tire pressure in the 25-27 range for several rides to see if I would have any issues or problems and I did not have any. Pick your pressure, these wheels can take it.

I ride trail and all mountain type stuff in the western Colorado eastern Utah high desert mostly, with some high alpine stuff. I bought the all mountain wheel over their cross country wheel because of where and how I ride. I don't currently race.

So far, so good. No weird noises, no dings, no problems after three months. Outstanding product.

Anyone running this combo? If so, how is it performing? I'm ripping the beads during hard cornering. Protection TR tires set up tubeless on Enve AM 29 on a Tallboy LTC. Been through 3 tires now. None have lasted more than a few days. Bead tears from casing during high speed bermed cor ... Read More »

New Enduro Comp 29..I want to convert to 1x, am I screwed?

I'd like to convert my 2x to a 1x, but because of the Taco blade, I'm reading that once the Taco blade is removed, the spacing isn't correct and that it's next to impossible to find the right part. Is there any truth to this? Also, can I just pull the crank off without having to mess with the BB? ... Read More »
