- Recommend me a solid ‘All mountain’ rim…
Just bought an Enduro SL which came with DT XR 4.2D rims, I’m feeling these are just a bit too narrow/light weight for this bike esp. with 2.3-2.5″ tyres… So I’m thinking of replacing them with something a bit more burly (reusing the existing hubs though).
Any thoughts on a good solid proper AM rim, hopefully still nice and light? I was thinking the Stans ZTR flow perhaps? Or maybe DT EX 5.1d’s?

I_Ache, that happened during the Mega qualifier last year and weirdly I didn’t even pinch flat. People slate 5.1s for being soft but I dunno, I think it’s a choice between something beefier or something made of harder alloy but which is more likely to crack than dent.Posted 9 years agonickcSubscriber
Probably not what you want to hear, but most of a wheel’s strength is down to spoke tension, and not a lot down to rim construction. Some of the more robust rims would probably be a bit better at surviving a head on slam into a rock, but TBH whatever will break/ding your 719 will probably do for a 321/5.1 as well.Posted 9 years ago
