not worth it for a DH bike. at fort its pretty normal to kill 1 set of rims a day.

On a race bike, though probably not worth it on a non race bike.

go down to the comments and on the third is a link to what happened to the test pair, apparently they were a lightened pre production version, but still....

Wow i did want some (dont many of us?).

It really is a shame. As a matter of fact, it's BS. As a product tester I find it insulting that a company would claim to have sent me a pre-production prototype without telling me. These rims cost me a separated shoulder. When I wrote the review, these pics were included, but the editor cut them out. What is included is the ACTUAL weight of the wheelset, which is heavier than the company quotes it to be, which means that these 'proto' rims are not any lighter. Trust me, had they told me these were pre-production sample carbon rims for testing, I would never have put them on my bike. Carbon has it's place, which is for race use only. If you ride hard every day, forget about it.
