Pros: Stiff, lightweight, dependable, rugged.

Cons: Bladed spokes are a pain to get replaced. Would like to see wider rims on the newer versions.

Recommendation: Good wheel set.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Lighter then most stock wheels. Price.

Cons: Durability.

Recommendation: Good set of budget wheels. I did have to have them rebuilt twice in 3 months.

Pros: Super lightweight
Accelerate quickly

Cons: Makes a little bit of noise when landing a hop

Recommendation: These things are unbreakable. They also accelerate quicker than anything I have ever ridden. If you are a XC Weenie and are looking for a fast, reliable, tubeless wheelset, these are for you.

Pros: bomb proof,

Cons: none

Recommendation: I've done ten foot drops on these rims with out taco-ing them and I think that's pretty damn good for an XC wheel. They accelerate very quikly and just keep goin'. A little expensive but it's tottaly worth it for the amount of performance you get:)

Pros: Ultra light stiff rim, rolls forever

Cons: can scratch easily.

Recommendation: Great wheel set for XC racing or performance oriented riders who want the most out of there ride.
