I am looking for a relatively light wheelset with a 20mm through axle front hub that is disc ready. I weigh about 200 lbs and ride aggressive XC with some light freeride...nothing over 6 footers. This is to go on my Kona Coiler 6'' full squisher. I would like to get a little lighter than my stock Sun Singletrack setup now. Any suggestions? I would like to stay in the 300-400 range.

I know you have a Coiler Shig. Whats your setup? I have been looking at an Azonic Outlaw wheelset. Ideally, I would like to go lighter than the stock Sun Singletrack rims and crappy hubs on my Coiler. I am not sure if I want to just replace the hubs or go with a new wheelset all together. I need a 20mm through in front to accomodate my new Pike fork.

Some times you get what you pay for. For me i would pass on the flamers, but of course thats a personal opinion. Ride on :)
The graphics are my addition. Not a factor.
The WTB FR rims are 75+ grams heavier. Not worth the extra $200+ IMO. Especially when one of the goals is to reduce weigh vs the stock Singletrack wheels.

The WTB wheelset is over the OP's price range anyway.

contact brian (esquire) at boutique bikes... i got hadleys and dtswiss fr6.1d from him along with a full bike...so i dunno how much my wheelset would be by themselves. But see how much he can price you at. I think they're very reasonable and will help u out.
