which rim to buy?

Looking for a new wheelset and the rim is where I am stuck. Buying from Chain Reaction Cycles and going with Hope Pro 2 laced to either SunRingle Rhyno Lite XL, SunRingle Single Track, or Mavic EN 521. Currently have Mavic EN 321 rims and love them, a little heavy, but definitely strong. I am 170 pounds, need a somewhat light rim for pedaling but strong enough to take some abuse. Its on a Heckler and I ride light freeride with 3-4ft drops, rocky technical trails, but also smooth single track and fireroads occasionally. Thanks if you got any advise or experience with these rims!!

I would take the Singletrack over the Rhino XL, since the Rhinos often are very difficult to mount some tires.

Not sure about that Mavic, but you can't really go wrong with most of their rims.
