Strengths:    Great hubs with 4 bolt disks.
Rims seem to be strong and can easily be used with 2.5 Diesel tyres from Conti, though I now use only 2.2 RaceKing. Always UST.

Weaknesses:    The rims does not seal with the rim strips specially made for the ZTR-Flow rims, bought with the wheels.
The yellow tape is disgustingly difficult to clean after when you need new tyres.

Bottom Line:   
Next set of wheels for me will not have any Stan’s parts in them.

The hubs from Hope are recommended, but why Stan's products are so often recommended is hard to understand.

Strengths:    Light, fast, looks sweet.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
The best tubeless setup that I have ever used. I used to do a ghetto setup, which was pretty good , but when I switched to this full tubeless setup, I was absolutely addicted to it. I will never go back to tubes, these are too good.

Strengths:    Light, strong, Stan's stuff just works. Gives tire bigger footprint.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I got this wheel for a front wheel with hope Pro 2 hub. It is a light, strong wheel. I'm believing the Stan's hype more and more everyday. I've used their rim strips/sealant with non-Stan's rims before. With this rim all you need is their valve and yellow tape (special width for the Flow). It took me about 5 minutes to get the wheel taped and bead seated. I didn't even really have to work the sealant around and it was completely sealed. The result is a light, strong, tubeless wheel that I can run almost any tire I want on.

Strengths:    Width

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Highly recommend for all mountain use or more depending on weight and riding style. I was a bit concerned that they would be high maintenance or weak as I ride hard and weigh about 195 loaded. After 2 years of use in a variety of riding conditions, they've stayed true, round and work with a variety tires run tubeless.

Looking for Stan's No Tubes ZTR Flow EX Rim 29" 36H rims....

Found 32H rims for a good price but as a super-clyde I may be better off with 36H. Anyone know of some decent prices on them? $95 a pop is best I've seen so far after a short search.Read More »

Stans ZTR Flow and Spec GC Grid UST tire

Anybody try this combo? I bought a Specialized Ground Control Grid 2BR (UST) tire about 6 months ago and finally got around to mounting it on my Stans ZTR flow rims. At first, I couldn't get it to seat the whole way around. So I let it down and soaped up the sidewalls lightly and then hit it wi ... Read More »

Help....Brand New wheel set issue. Stans ZTR Flow with Hope Pro 2 Evo 40T rear hub.

I just got a brand new wheel set built with the new 40T Hope Pro 2 Evo with 40 tooth rear hub. I was super excited as this is my first set of "real wheels". My frustration is that the rear wheel does not spin well at all!! I turn the bike over, crank it as fast as I can and it stops spinning after ... Read More »
