I'm looking to shed some weight on my current set up of Stans Flow/Hope Pro 2 wheelset which comes out at just under 2050g when you include the rim strips.
As my pockets arn't deep enough for a set of the carbon Haven's (as much as I would like them!) I have been looking at the alloy alternative's which come in with a full UST rim at 1650g, so just about a 500g saving, which is a shed load when it comes to wheels.
Got a trip to the good old USA coming up, and these wheels can be had for around £400, which is reasonable to me. Question is, how tough are they? I appreciate i'm moving away from the 'spares on every street corner' wheelset, but I will be keeping the others anyway as a spare set.
I don't need a DH tough wheelset for my 5, but I also don't want a floppy XC noodle wheelset, but there really doesn't seem to be much inbetween.
So, anyone got any experience of these? Alternatively, what am I missing out on?
