Does anyone have a comparison? If so, are the Arrow FRX just as strong as Mavic's 321? I had a set of 321's last season and they held up fine, this years sponsor is Arrow so I was wondering if anyone has tried both? Help me out fellas!

i don't think you can go wrong with either in terms of strength,
but if you're dh racing i figure you're gonna take tire profile into consideration.

wider rim usually = better profile for wider tires
so you might want the 321s.

but i did run 2.6" gazzis on an FRX and a 521 and they were fine.

I've run the DHX and the D321, both are some of my favorites, DHX is the toughest rim I've tried. Haven't tried the FRX -- prolly fine for DH racing if you don't trash wheels. If you're talking widths, the FRX is 27mm, D321 is 29mm, not a significant difference (DHX is 37mm).
