  • Kinda Boring – What Rims? Tough trail riding and a different…
  • …colour to black!

    My old Mavics now have seen better days and I think its time for a total rebuild. Planning on getting my hugely reliable Pro2s serviced and built up with new spokes but not sure about rims. Last time I had a pair of wheels built, Mavics were the #1 choice but not so anymore it seems. I also don’t really want black rims – the tart in me says white or yellow.

    So, whats out there for about £40 per rim, tough but light enough for general trail riding around rocky areas, not too bothered about tubeless compatibility and available in funky colours?

    Cheers

    i’ve been using atomlab dhr’s for the last 9 years (or there abouts) super tough and never had any problems with them. granted they are heavy and are black but atom lab rims in general are super tough even the lightweight ones.
    have a look at the superlite sl rims they make. they come in black, red or gold.

    If you like blue parts, these might look damn nice:

    If your Pro IIs are blue, then it’s a no-brainer !

    Stans? I got a pair of white flows on my bike and they’ve been great.

    Superstar Tactic:

    I raced a whole Enduro season on the more XC based Sentinel rim and it was spot on. The slightly wider, tougher Tactic should be spot on for you I reckon and it’s available in loads of colours.

    Cheers all. Been looking at the SS rims and I’m not bothered about the whole ‘SS ruined my life’ rubbish – they tick a lot of boxes.

    Anyone know anything about the Nukeproof Generator TR rims?

    I’ll pass on the Atomlabs. It doesn’t surprise me they’ve lasted 9 years. My experience of Atomlab rims is that they’ll most likely last another 99 but with the cost of a fair old weight penalty.

    Hmm

    I have a set of brand new white stans flow rims in the shed doing nothing.

    would be in and around your budget.

    Interested?

    whats the consensus on the Mavic Crossmax Enduro WTS wheelset? (apart from them being yellow and expensive)

    +1 for the Stan’s Flow

    RudiBoy – how many spokes? I may well be interested…

    Have Stan’s Arch on Hope hubs on my bike. Have been crashed about in Wales, the Lakes and the Peaks with narry a sign of a problem. Given that I’m 6’4″, weigh the best part of 17 stone and have a riding style that, when it comes to wheels, could best be described as unsympathetic, that’s not to be sniffed at 😉
    On that basis the Flows are going to be even better.

    the superlite rim weighs 500g compared to 490g for the stans flow ex…
    for an extra 10g of weight and potentially years of hassle free riding…i know where my money would go…but then its your money so your prerogative…. 😀
