Whoever says, "Yeah, but air is lighter..." doesn't get it. Coil just works better (more consistently as Curtis said) and is more reliable. This is wicked. How about a 27.5 non-plus guys?

Awesome video! I hope they release a coil kit for my Ohlins RF34 (160mm) fork!

^^^100%. LB wheels, built however you want from a decent local builder are the dirty little secret that the big boys don't want anyone to know about. One can build a more durable set of wheels that have all of the positives that carbon is known for without all the bs proprietary hub or...more

I agree that SRAM's handling of your issues was top shelf, and one day when my LB Chinese Carbon rims give out I'll likely get worse service than you experienced with these wheels. But I'm more than a year in on my substantially less expensive wheels, riding every bit as technical rocky...more

Thanks, liquid! We try to be as transparent in our reviews as possible. SRAM handled this very well.

Possibly the best damn review on a carbon wheelset, I've ever read. To actually show us the readers the video of when the damage occurred and how it may have occurred is MUCH appreciated. Thank you for the honest review and SRAM should take note and try to figure this one out. $2k...more

Why couldn't they just have used 150mm rear ends and 83mm bbs? That would have given them all those claimed benefits plus some. They could have kept the chainrings the same and without any real effort made xx cranks with a longer shaft. It really is ridiculous introducing...more
