Strengths:    Super light and well built.

Weaknesses:    Nothing!!!

Bottom Line:   
The alpine rims are the best I've owned. Super wide and super stiff. I've run tubeless since day one (28 psi front, 30 psi rear) with no problems.
Paired with the American classic hubs, you can't beat this wheelset.

It's my racing wheelset, so I would warn you on everyday riding. If you hit a rock hard, you'll damage the rim. But then again, what wheelset won't be damaged? If you are to use everyday I would run a higher pressure and maybe bigger tires.
I currently have them setup with Specialized Fastrak LK.

For the last 2 years I have run a Racing Ralph/Rocket Ron combo on my Anthem with tubes, but have been told by a couple of local XC riders that the new ... Read More »

Stan's ZTR Alpine For light All-mountain?

Hey guys, I might need to replace my front rim and have been looking at options, it looks as though Stan's rims have the best weight to strength ratio and I like idea of BST. My only problem is that my current front hub is 28h and that means I would have to use a ZTR Alpine on the front. Is this ... Read More »

ZTR Crest or Alpine?

I am 135lbs and XC racing in the pacific northwest. These will be my daily training wheels as well as my race wheels. I already have some DT Swiss Hug 240 hubs that I will lace one of these sets of rims up to. I'm planning on using DT Swiss Revolution spokes (2.0/1.5) with aluminum nipples. Does ... Read More »
