Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I have had these rims over a year, been to Spain and alps riding DH and they are sill not dented unlike my DT swiss.
However i hate the Internation Bead System, my Maxxis tyres really do not want to sit on the bead, especially Dual ply tyres. After fathing around for ages the single ply tyres run true but the Dual ply will just not seat on the bead and it really frustrates me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous served well for 5(!!) years of hard street/dirt/dirt (was ridden by 4 guys, even on rigid fork)
ended up with eyelet tore off from the rim, but its still perfectly straight

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Came as standard on my giant reign. I wasn't expecting too much but have been very impressed. Seem stronger than the Mavic D521/EX721 that i've used in the past and slightly lighter too. Highly reccomended. Not needed any attention in over a year!
