29er Cobalt 2
Dont they look pretty?
Lightweight, tubeless off the bat.
Unpublished weight limit, tensioning/truing really needs to be done back at the factory.
hub body gets notched from cassettes easily.
People are always asking about the wheels as if you've been mounting a Kardashian.
Great XC wheels if you are under 175 LBS (unpublished limit). I use these on a Orbea Alma 29er Carb and being on a hardtail, usually take a different line. At 220LBS, I got many miles of wobble free use. I lent them to another rider, yes, a dumbass move, consider he was a budget rider and trashed everything. He was smaller than me, and a week later handed me a trashed set of wheels. I bought new rims, spokes had them rebuilt at LBS, only for them to come out of true in a matter of a few miles each time. Eventually elevated it to CB for Warranty. They acknowledged that I exceeded their weight limit (if it was printed somewhere I would have not bought them), so they upgraded me (for a not so nominal fee) to Iodines, the All Mountain design of the Cobalt.
