Easton XC1 29er wheels for a 200 pounder?
Please weigh in with your opinions. I want light wheels for my Big Mama. I weigh 200 with gear.
I've been looking at c29ssmax and easton XC1. The Easton's caught my eye beucase they are less expensive.
I am a line picker, not a basher. I don't EVER jump mre than one foot. My trails are a solid mix of technical/smooth climbing, rooty and rocky trails, and some twisty descents. I roll a Crossmark rear, and Ignitor/Ardent up front. The Eastons and Mavics are somewhat narrow, but I'm not sure that that matters too much.
Easton's a good choice give the details above?
Thanks for the replies so far...
The Havens look SWEET. BUT, are out of my budget.:madman:

Easton makes nice stuff.:thumbsup:
