I need some new hoops for my Santacruz Superlight. Been running Old Hope XC hubs with Mavic 717 rims (i think) but a large crack in the rear wheel and dent in the front means it's time to upgrade.
I'm on 6 bolt rotors. I mostly ride XC and tend to be pretty smooth (the old wheels have survived about 6 years of abuse with only 2 or 3 bearing replacements on the rear).
Looking at spending in the region of £500 for the pair give or take. Primary requirement is lightweight but need to be strong enough to take the usual weekend warrior abuse.
So.... What do you recommend? XTR? Mavic Crossmax? Etc, etc??
