Strengths:    WIDE light stiff strong, priced better than competitors

Weaknesses:    Bumble bee buzz (not really a problem)

Bottom Line:   
have had these for 6 months now on a Rip9. Tires are Schwable Knobby Nic 2.35". These wheels give you a very stable foot print and increase your control dramatically. I am 225 lbs and run these at 20psi and have had no rim strikes or pinches. The newer version has DT Swiss 350 hubs with a 54pt ratchet for positive strong engagement. They do buzz.... Front hub is some no-name but works as well as any other quality hub out there.

Retail is $1450 direct from Ibis

I got these on a sale with a cash back program which netted them to my door at $1000 flat. I could not be happier with my selection considering Enve and others cost in excess of $2000

Strengths:    stiff

Weaknesses:    hubs look cheap but work great so far

Bottom Line:   
Where to start? These are the best wheels I have ever ridden. I am an embarrassed wheel junky, custom, endure industry 9 and more although for disclosure I have never owned carbon rims. Yes, compared to I9 the hubs are ugly and they look cheap. But if I had to choose between looks and performance I want the ride. These wheels are wide. With 2.5 specialized grounds control tires its looks like I am riding a fat bike tire/wheel combo. They are super stiff. I could hardly bend them sans tires in my hands and ever so slightly when leaning down with all my weight just for giggles. Tires pressures of 15 front and 19 rear feel fully inflated…almost over inflated on the pinch and ride test. I don’t pretend to understand the physics. Low pressure results in fast, stable and predictable ride. No burping and no squirming when cornering. It turns out a lot of the weird unpredictability I hate about a full suspension 29er turned out to be the wheels. I have painstakingly built up a tallboy LTC in an attempt to make it as good as my mojo hd 26 and failed miserably for years. I always had a little ghost in the machine on the tallboy and couldn’t make it totally predictable. It would be ride great for the most part and then suddenly become unpredictable and scary on downhill off camber turns, successive big hits, and fast technical cornering. I always felt like I was fighting the bike when things got really rough. On the ibis the rougher it gets the more we work together. The ibis 941 wheels eliminated most of the sketchy small variables in the ride I couldn’t control on the tallboy regardless of my setup. I put them on the tallboy Ltc and instantly it felt razor sharp like the ibis, which is the benchmark for me personally. That is to say a set of 941’s on the tallboy feels like the stiffest, most precise, and most fun to ride 26 I have ever been on except they monster truck ride over everything. Thank you ibis and P.S. make a 26 fatty.
