Rated 4 out of 5 by mac0 Good sturdy UST compatible rim
First WTB change alloy to WT69, and I get the new alloy.
Weight is 480/490g per rim, above stated weight, but not a big issue.
Rim have requires more finishing as there is machining residue on the spoke holes. Again not a big deal but expect better. Rim seal is also not perfect. So 1 star due to this.
Building wheel was a pleasure: very rigid and straigh rim, extremelly easy to tension (beware: very easy to over tension) due to 4D drilling.
Mounted tubeless with TLR schwable tyres, no issue in one summer season in rock garden. Robust, stiff and reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 1 rim cracked out of the 6 rims I have bought so.... not bad considering my riding habit
I bought the 1st pair, ride it aggressively in the trails after the build onto my old Chris King ISO hubs, like it as very much as it's stiffer than the previous ZTR flow on my old Chris King ISO hubs.
So I bought another 2 pairs for my other 2 bikes Chris King ISO hubs as well... have to buy one more as the 1 pair I bought have cracks on the spoke eyelets on the rear rim.
Don't know what cause the crack but for the track record.... 1 rim cracked out of the 6 rims I have got is not bad... will post another review to update it any other decrepancies should surface... ride safe.
