Got these for my new Pivot Trail 429. Worth every penny! Made climbing a whole new experience! So much more fun than the heavier aluminum wheels that came with the bike!
I was looking for a super light but durable wheelset for my new Trail 429 down-country rig. Originally I was looking at the DT Swiss XMC 1200 with 30i rims. At virtually the same weight these wheels have the incredible performance of Hydra hubs and Reynolds rims. A friend who is 6'3", easily 200+ lbs and an ex-pro DH racer has yet to crack his Reynolds rims after running them on 3 bikes over 2 years. 'Nuff said.
