    I you wanted to go tubeless Stans flow would be the answer but otherwise Mavic are ace.

    Dt and Pacentini also have some nice rims.

    en521? slightly more but apparently slightly stronger?

    Flows are meaty enough

    521 is supposed to be an enduro rim, lighter but a wee bit less strong than the 321. Though in reality who knows, Mavic’s “job descriptions” vary pretty randomly at times.

    I’m a Flow/Flow Ex fan… Quite a bit lighter, tubeless ready, and wider. Also plenty tough- I finally killed an old Flow in the back of my downhill bike but it’d taken a righteous booting and I don’t think any less of it. Replaced with a Flow Ex. But they are more expensive so if you’re not using the advantages it’s a harder sell.

    If your not dead set on Magic the Halo SAS rims are pretty good. Also the Sun MTX. The nukeproof generator rims are re-stickered mtx too. Pretty good prices too. MTX are bombproof 100%. I put mine through huge abuse and they didn’t even untrue or flat spot. I’m your weight also.
