Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

-Strong -Nice, long lasting color -Inexpensive -Can hold a ghetto tubeless. -Tough to knock out of true.

The Bad:

-While not overly heavy, they also aren't overly light.

Overall Review:

I've been running my Azonic Outlaw wheelset for a season and some change now, and I can honestly say that these are an incredible bargain.I'm 5' 11" and a mere 150lbs (with gear on), and I love to jump my bike, and charge into rough sections of trail. I have managed to destroy one wheel (from a competingcompany)withina week, so it's safe to say that my riding style can reap havoc on a wheel. Despite multiple casings and bike flinging crashes, the Outlaw rims remain dent free, and only required minimal truing after nearly 8 months ofneglectand abuse.

After a while I decided to convert to tubeless using gorilla tape to seal the rim. The system is holding up very well, and I have yet to experience the dreaded air burp while hammering a corner. Oh, and my tires are not the UST model.

I've been running my Azonic Outlaw wheelset for a season and some change now, and I can honestly say that these are an incredible bargain.I'm 5' 11" and a mere 150lbs (with gear on), and I love to jump my bike, and charge into rough sections of trail. I have managed to destroy one wheel (from a competing company) within a week, so it's safe to say that my riding style can reap havoc on a wheel. Despite multiple casings and bike flinging crashes, the Outlaw rims remain dent free, and only required minimal truing after nearly 8 months of neglect and abuse.

After a while I decided to convert to tubeless using gorilla tape to seal the rim. The system is holding up very well, and I have yet to experience the dreaded air burp while hammering a corner. Oh, and my tires are not the UST model.

There are a couple of nit-pics that I wish Azonic would change. First, while the green on my rims has stayed strong, and still looks new, I wish they had more colors than black, white, red, blue, green, "hustler", and the occasional gold. Mainly I think that gold should become standard, and that "raw," purple and orange be added to the line up.

Second, they need to find a way to lighten up the wheel set without sacrificing their strength. At a claimed 2200 grams they are neither light, or heavy but there are wheel sets out there that are just as strong, and lighter, but for extra cash.

Overall, I have received way more performance and bling than what I paid for from the Azonic Outlaw Wheel set, and with a few changes, they could go from being the best deal I know of, to simply the best wheel set around.
