Model/Year: 2013 W/ XT Hubs

Pros: Tough
Easy to Set Up
Cost Effective
Light for the Money

Recommendation: I don't have a lot to compare these to, but I've been really happy with these wheels! I ride them hard through the gnarly rocky trails in New England and have not had a single issue. Highly recommended!

Model/Year: 2013 with X9 hub

Pros: Stiff, light, strong, price

Cons: None

Recommendation: I've got a front wheel a year ago with X9 hub and now can say this wheel can withstand daily use and abuse on fairly rough terrain. And it's not heavy to roll across the finish line in your local race. I prefer tubes, so don't know about tubeless performance, but will recommend this wheel to a good friend.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Very tough wheelset with good seals and easy to maintain and mount tires.

Cons: Not blingy or expensive enough for some people.

Recommendation: I bought these as a backup wheelset to a set of Easton Havens that I sent in for warranty two years ago. I ended up keeping these on the bike and haven't had a problem with 10,000 miles. Easiest tubeless rim you'll find. I can handpump on just about any tire with no problems.

Pros: Strong. Decent width.

Cons: Flex.

Recommendation: I've had 2 sets of these wheels and both have performed well. Tubless setup is a breeze with most tires.
