I'd been pretty much set on Hope Pro 2s on Mavic 819s but then saw the 2012 Havens for a slightly lower price.
They're almost a pound lighter, but how tough are they and how good are the hubs? I've ridden on Hope for the last 4 years and know that they work, while the Eastons are an unknown quantity. I am aware that the graphics are gopping.
Riding will be varied from mincecore to big mountains in the Lakes on a 150mm bike.
