Strengths:    Strong, light, instant power transfer of the hub, low flex, paint and decals unscratched.

Weaknesses:    None Yet.

Bottom Line:   
I have them on my Niner Rip 9 and abuse them every now and then. 3 - 5 ft drops, rock gardens, tubeless with mid psi.

Strengths:    Perfect combination of lightweight and strength. I ride these on my Rocky Mountain Element 950 which is built to have the speed of an XC bike yet be able to take the abuse of everyday trails. The super wide rim really helps give your 2.2-2.5 tires the intended shape they were designed for. The freehub body has a great sound while shredding on the trails which is just a bonus and makes them sound high end. The hubs also seem to have a very reliable sealed cartridge bearing set. My only complaint would be the spacers for the 20mm conversion up front fall off the hub very easily when installing on the fork.

Weaknesses:    None unless you do not like beefy light rims.

Bottom Line:   
Get them and rip it!

Strengths:    At 1775 grams with Stan's 3.30 hubs, these are a fantastic balance between strength and light weight! The Arch EX is flat out great. No other way to put it!

Weaknesses:    None whatsoever!

Bottom Line:   
These were purchased as an upgrade over a set of Bontrager Race Lite FCC Disc 29, 28 hole wheels. And what an upgrade! These are currently retailing at $595. Sure, you can get a lighter stronger carbon wheel, but not for less than twice the price. AND, they would be only slightly lighter and only somewhat stiffer overall. All I can say is if you are considering an upgraded wheel set, you won't regret Stan's Arch EX!

Rims = Stans ZTR Flow EX 29er versus Mavic TN 719 Disc 29er

Which would you go with? I want a new "big boy" wheel set, and these two rims are what I'll choose from. For reference, I'm 6'1.5", stout build, and weigh around 250 pounds all decked out in riding gear. I ride a hardtail 29er. All of my riding is tame-to-fairly-tame XC and/or light trail. No j ...
