Strengths:    Strong, True, Fast, Perfect for riders who want that balance between weight and strength. Oh, and they come in white!!!

Weaknesses:    Can be pricey (maybe not compared to similar sets)...I purchased mine with a 15% military discount offer.
White is slightly heavier than black. :(

Bottom Line:   
I own a set of 'Arc'h AND 'Arch EX'. My main bike has the newer EX and other than a slight difference in looks, I cannot tell the difference (mainly because I peeled the stickers off). Sure the EX are slightly wider, but I never had a problem with burping a tire before, and I certainly don't now. These rims (built with Hope hubs) have been fantastic over the last year. I have ridden them on hard trails with many roots, rocks, drops and jumps and they have performed flawlessly. I will not use another wheel.

Stans ZTR Arch EX 29er Wheelset

I'm coming off of Easton Haven carbons, and while I did have a few busted spokes and had the rear hub replaced under warranty, I'm tough on wheels and thought that they held up well for 2-1/2 years of abuse on a Santa Cruz TBc. Loved the light weight and the quick spin-up and acceleration. So, wil ... Read More »

wheels with better stiffness than Stan's ZTR Arch 29er?

I'm thinking about replacing Stan's ZTR Arch 29er on Scalpel 29er Carbon 2 with something that has better stiffness / less flex. Would Mavic CrossMax SLR 29er 2013 do the job? Or CrossMax ST 29, with +4 spokes? I think both DT Swiss Super Comp spokes and ZTR Arch 29er contribute to flex prob ... Read More »

Epic Carbon Comp 29er with ZTR Arch wheels or stock Epic Carbon Expert 29er?

I decided I wanted to get a 29er hardtail as my every day XC/trail bike for mostly non- to moderate technical riding (and maybe an occasional race). The reality is, however, that the hardtail leaves me feeling beaten up. So, I demo'd an Epic Comp 29er (aluminum). I was very impressed with how it c ... Read More »
