These came as part of my Canyon Strive, the rear TR6 hub had a total failure with multiple Pawls shearing off while riding and leaving my bike completely inoperable and rear hub destroyed. So far Hayes has been fantastic about working to fix it, but it makes me very nervous with doing remote rides on this hub now given that there has been other feedback of the hub failure. no explanation of how it could happen either? Great wheels, feeling a bit dubious about the hub though.
the order was made and the wheels were to me in about 4 days - - awesome experience - set up was super easy - even for someone like me without a whole lot of mech experience - they came with valves and an entire set of wheel decals...you could mix and match how you like - !! I had to get a few other parts...cassette - tires etc - so have not ridden them much yet...but so far I am very pleased - !!
I noticed a huge difference in how my bike rides with this wheelset. Stiffer, more responsive, holds a line better. Hub engagement is plenty and actually the same as Chris King hubs. I'll be buying another set for my hardtail.
These wheels give me much greater confidence when riding rugged trails. I live the Rockies and some of my trails are just dangerous. Until I purchased the TR 309S, I had no idea how much my wheels were deflecting from a straight line because of the rocky terrain. My timed speed has increased along with a feeling of being safe.
I like the ride quality of this wheelset. I’m not an enduro racer but I have noticed a significant improvement in traction and damping over my old AC (very lightweight) wheels. I run specialized 2.35” tires. The fact that Reynolds decal color exactly matched my Stumpy color was a plus. The front hub has a tight tolerance for my RS Pike fork, sometimes requiring little help when inserting the front wheel into the fork, but it is a small issue. Included rotor center lock adapters were very nice, too! Great deal and high quality for the price.
