Date Reviewed: August 14, 2004

Strengths:    Awesome looking, the best-looking wheels in the world. Especially when runing.. When flats, tube does not get a snake bite.

Weaknesses:    Very NON-bomb-proof. They flat bends VERY easy.

Bottom Line:   
I wont ride any other wheels for street/urban rides. They bend, but they dont die.

Submitted by Roger audziss a Downhiller from Carleton, Quebec, Canada

Date Reviewed: April 17, 2002

Strengths:    everything!! I bet you cant break these wheels if you tried, I have dont everything...landed big drops...on flats!! not even a dent, the wheels are the best, the strongest, and if you flat, the tires wont come off, you can keep racing!

Weaknesses:    weight, but who cares, its DH...supposed to be heavy, dont want a little 200g rim on your bike! kind of a pain in the ass to change tubes, but thats all part of the DH game...dont want to lose your tire

Bottom Line:   
this wheel set is the best ever built, those folks at Sun-ringlé have really been doing their homework on this one! you can drop em, you can bash em, you can Dh em...you wont break em! These are highly reccomended for any one who turns their Rhino Lites into hectagones like me...if you dont care about price on your new DH rims, or weight...get your ass to the closest bike shop and buy these! you will not be disappointed!

Submitted by Fred Harrison a Downhiller from Canoga Park, CA, USA

Date Reviewed: February 21, 2001

Strengths:    Super strong wheelset, 46mm wide rims, hubs are top notch.

Weaknesses:    A little on the heavy side, tires are to mount cause of size of rims. Powder coating easyly scratches.

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line is that if looking for a set wheels that will stand up to anything you put in front of them. I had them for almost a year, I raced on them, I have freeriding on them, hell I even smacked a log on one ride and I have never had to true them yet.

If your a flat landing, no limit rider than these wheels are for you. You can even get them in standard quick release or 20 mm axle in the front and in back comes standard or 12 mm bolt through axle. make it great if you have an Intense or Straight eight from the big S company.
