    “Strong carbon rim”

    The Good: Strong and sturdy, perfect for xc racing, tubeless ready, affordable, Lite,

    The Bad: Nothing that I could find

    Overall Review:

    I have been searching for a light weight rim for a while. These rims were better than some of the other brands I was considering. The carbon is strong, I feel super confident on them. I got these for my race bike but will probably get some for my all around every day training bike as well. For a while, I was debating on going tubeless. Now that I have them and am using their orange tubeless system, I think it's been one of the greatest transitions! My race bike is super light. I want to get more carbon components as soon as I have more funding. Just don't want to break the bank. But I love Loaded components. I appreciate the affordability and the quality of their items. I have not had any problems so far and don't really see any in the future. Their customer service is great. I received my product quickly and was able to start racing immediately.
