The SpeedDisc i19 offers race worthy weight (450 grams), and excellent strength characteristics. The disc-brake-only SpeedDisc i19 features WTB’s Global Bead Seat and eyelets, but lacks the I-Beam and Unbendium Bulge of the LaserDisc series.
WTB SpeedDisc i19 Rim 26'' Specifications:
Usage: Cross Country.
WTB SpeedDisc i19 Rim 26'' Technologies:
GBS: WTB’s proprietary Global Bead Seat design utilizes deeper grooves for the bead seats as well as two raised lips that lock the tire’s beads into place on the rim. GBS–featured on LaserDisc, SpeedDisc and Dual Duty series rims–holds the tyre firmly in place and greatly reduces the chance of “burping” the tyre off the rim in heavy lateral loading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sasu Easy to build the wheel, looks nice
I bought a few of these rims, the price is very tempting for such a quality product. I can get two of these rims for the price of one wheel build in the local bike shop.
I used one of these wheels for my first ever wheel build, on a Shimano SLX rear hub. It was an easy and straightforward build, it came out straight without any special effort. By building the wheel myself I already saved the price of two of these rims. Fantastic!
No riding on this rim yet, as the first wheel is for my son's MTB and he will try it only after the winter. Going to build a front wheel for him, too, when the XT front hub arrives. My son rides hard and destroys rims and wheel axles, so it will be interesting to see how this rim will hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlexK Looks good, check the valve type
The reason I write the review - this rim comes with the hole for PRESTA valve, not schrader as you may expect from cheap rim.
There's nothing more specific I can tell - bought this rim as a spare, so no real life tests were made. The rim makes good visual expression though - well finished and such.
The real weight is 449grams.
