    light and fast

    dropped a bunch of weight with these wheels, yet they seem very strong. should make a big difference on the trail bike for XC riding. & I9 Hydra's are amazing. Super stoked on this wheel set.

    Climb like crazy.

    My Merida Big Nine 9000 came with these wheels stock. They are ridiculously light and 100% true from the beginning (not that obvious thing for new wheels) up until now, after 5 races and about 200 training miles. The hub is crazy lous which many riders love, but I prefer not being heard by other racers when I make an approach on decent in order to make a surprise attack. Riding on Maxxis Aspen EXO TR 2.25 with about 1.25 bar pressure (I'm 165 lbs) and love it that way on XC tracks.

    Good Decision

    So many options out there for lightweight, smooth rolling XC wheels. After talking to my LBS, I decided on the Blacklabel 259 Hydras and was able to take advantage of the 20% off sale through my shop. The wheels are light (dropped 2lbs of rolling weight from stock set), the Hydra hubs buzz like crazy but engagement is incredible. I've only had them for a few weeks, so I'm unable to review durability, but the I9 hubs are easily serviceable, the CX Ray spokes are not propietary, and the whole set looks really well made. To this point, I'm very happy with the decision I made.
