This is a pair of wheels for aggressive XC and adventure racing. The tubeless XM819 rims are nearly bombproof and are easy to mount tyres to, and the Stan’s ZTR hubs keen the weight down. The Stan’s hubs have proven to have excellent durability and are very good value. The front can be upgraded to QR15mm should Dave want to upgrade his suspension fork later.
Spokes are black DT Swiss Competition double-butted. The front nipples are 16mm aluminum and the rear uses 16mm brass.
All-up this is a very respectable weight for a wheelset with this durability.
