none so far
I have the AC race 27.5 on my Giant/Liv Lust. I swapped out the factory wheels and dropped almost two pounds. I'm going on my fourth year with these and I've put them through the wringer. I began my search for a lightweight wheel set and looked at Enve, Easton, all the big names. The only contender was the Stans Crests. But all of the competing wheel sets were more expensive and weighted more. I believe these came in at 1359 grams. So, it was a no brainer to give these a try. I live on the east coast where things are tight, rooty, rocky, and muddy/clay to a sandy trail. Note, I do not do jumps so I cannot say how they would do. I use Schwalbe Racing Ralph tires and around 18 pounds of pressure. I've never had an issue. They are light, stiff, and roll well. They are a bit scratched up by now as I hit everything with them. I ride year round and I am very happy with these.
