Adam shot us an email after meeting one of our other customers at Thredbo bike park. He'd been having issues with two consecutive sets of factory wheelsets, and had decided he needed some tough reliable XLR8 wheels.
He usually rides the rocky technical trails around Sydney, and being a heavier bloke, wanted a tough light wheelset with burly hubs. As a result we selected the Nextie Carbon Premium Enduro 27.5" rims with a 29mm internal width.
A reinforced carbon 36h rear rim and a White Industries XMR hub was used. The additional 35g of weight from the spokes and the extra carbon will never be noticed whilst riding, but the additional toughness and stiffness will! A standard layup 32h rim was used on the front, again laced to a White Industries XMR hub.
Sapim Race black spokes and black brass nipples complete the package - a super tough Enduro wheelset, that's affordable and still very light.
