Bombproof rim

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Durable and stiff without breaking the bank

The Bad:

After two seasons of riding I can't think of any so far

Overall Review:

I’ve been running the Mavic 823’s for two years now without any issues. These truly are an awesome rim both for durability and come at a very reasonable price point. Although they may not be as flashy as some of the other rims on the market such as the Deemax or Easton rims, these really do get the job done and get it done without any issues or maintenance involved. The rims came stock on my bike and they were laced to WTB laserdisc hubs and from day one it was set and forget . After riding for 2 years now the rims are still straight, spoke are still tensioned correctly and there are no flat spots on the rim. I’m not a very smooth rider so I tend to be a bit hard on wheels but even after numerous cases and flat landing these rims stay true.

Another great thing about these rims is the ability to run these tubeless. I’ve been running mine with tubes but next year I may try a tubeless setup so its a bonus that these are already setup to be run either with tubes or without.

If you are looking for a durable and stiff rim that you know will last a long time, or you’re someone that abuses and goes through rims a lot I would definitely recommend these as with my experience they have been an amazing product.

Strong as Hell

The Good:


The Bad:

They take a little longer to lace up

Overall Review:

I worked at a bike shop for a few years and this was by far the best selling rim that I laced onto everyones hubs. We couldn't keep these in stock because they just fly off the shelves. I never had one person come back with any issues and after a couple of years these rims stay in great shape. I had to build myself a set and I have never even thought about changing rims since. I love that I get tubeless capability and the bead of any tire seats very well. This is why you see World Cup DH riders running these rims. Get yourself a set. You can't go wrong

You will need more than rocks

The Good:

-Look Good

The Bad:

-Only fit french valves

Overall Review:

The Mavic EX 823 Disc rim is one of the stongest rims out there and can really take a hit. I use it on a Santa Cruz V10 and have put it through the works and it has not even showed signs of damage. I have landed on flat on countless occasions and the rim is not even buckled. The spokes on the rim are strong and are held in place well and the tire fits into the rim well with no movement.

Overall this rim is a more affordable version of the Mavic Deemax and a must buy for anyone looking for new rims on abudget.
