Submitted by Charles a Downhiller from Seattle,Wa,U.S.A.

Date Reviewed: January 27, 2004

Strengths:    Excellent rims! practically unbreakable. Take 5-7 foot drops with no flex.

Weaknesses:    None so far , except for the high price.($750)

Bottom Line:   
This is a killer wheelset. You get what you pay for. It is just as strong as the pair of Sun MODO rims that I had but a lot lighter. These wheels, though they may be expensive, are worth every penny. My old laserdiscs had to be trued after about a month of riding, but not these. I've been taking continous urban obstacles, 5-10 foot drops and stairs with ease for a month or so now and can not feel any flex in the rims at all. Never had to true and I don't think I'll have to until race season. If you are serious about freeride or Dh racing,Buy these Wheels, Bottom Line!

Strengths:    Strong, durable, reliable!

Weaknesses:    I have to be a jerk and say weight, but without the heft they would be in pieces!

Bottom Line:   
Super strong. Able to take a good beating. Mainly used for free riding and occasional dual slalom racing. A must have for aggressive hard riders. I weigh 220 and can take 5 footers with no problem (assuming I land).

Date Reviewed: January 1, 2002

Strengths:    Mag30 rims rock.

Weaknesses:    Ringlé ABBAH S.O.S. hub left me hanging.

Bottom Line:   
Call me bitter, but the rear axle sheared in half leaving me high and dry seven miles from nowhere. I've bent several axles in my days, but never sheared one. And certainly not while climbing a hill. If you get the wheels, search around and get yourself a steel axle for the rear. For me I've having the hub replaced with a Hadley.
