Just bought second hand bike with this rims in Queenstown. I ride mostly flow/ jump trails and some blue tech or single black trails. Wheels were looking brand new but after 3 days riding (3-4 laps a day quite short trails) all spokes came loose. I didnt even hear that I hit the rock and there were dings. Maybe its not the most expensive wheelset, but I think its only for XC riding probably. Very disappointing.
Building these rims into wheels is an interesting experience. The rims are well made with good surface treatment. Upon first lacing there are some hops radially and laterally. However as soon as spoke tension reach about 100kgf the rims straighten itself out. All i needed to do was minor adjustments.
All spoke holes on the drivetrain side are tearing...this rim cant handle the stress. Dissappointing.
Did well the first 5 thousand km regular trails

This is my third set of wheels with Duroc rims. The Duroc 35's are great for the 2.4-2.6 MTB tire. Just built a new set a wheels with the 35's and the tires mounted and sealed immediately when adding air. The price, durability and weight ratio make these a win.
Absolutely Great. I bought it for my 2014 trek fuel and it was like an updated version of the bike. The width of this rim allows the use of wider tires without the deformation therefore the grip and stability on the bike improves dramatically. Very glad that I bought it.
