Description If you need a rim-brake compatible hoop for aggressive trail riding and freeriding, the Dual Duty FR is your rim. It features a 28-millimeter width, International Bead Seat, eyelets and 6-millimeter pins for extra strength.
Pros: Very strong & take a beating. They look good in black as Madd mentioned. Solid wheels
Cons: Yeah, they are a bit heavier than XC wheels, but hey, that's why they are called Dual Duty FR wheels....LOL
Recommendation: These are very strong wheels that have taken a beating beyond what some of my DH wheels have taken. They are very solid and the Heavy Duty LaserDisc hubs that came with it are awesome and don't miss a beat. Five seasons on the first pair (which I still have) and just starting on a new pair.
Pros: I have a set of these on one of my FR bikes and they are bomb proof. They take big hits off of 20' plus drops & anything else you can throw at them. Have not had any warping or problems in the year I have used them so far.
Cons: None yet! A little on the heavy side, but that is expected for these kind of rims.
Recommendation: If you want a bomb proof set of rims, these are the ones. They take a lot of abuse and keep rolling strong.
