    Syntace W30 MX wheelset reviews/opinions?

    Trying to get some info on what looks to be a great ~1600 gram alternative to carbon or, specifically, ENVE AM wheels.

    Most notable about these hoops is the 24mm internal rim width.

    anybody running these right now? and how do you like them? any comparisons to carbon?

    i would take W35MX, because there are no alternatives to them.
    and there was review in internet.

    I'm also between 30 and 35 and was e-mailing back and forth with somebody from Syntace.
    he told me if there's gonna be jumping and aggressiver riding to go with 35, rather than 30. to go 30 only if I'm total weight weenie.

    I'd rather get 35 and don't think about it.
    the only thing now is to try to find info on how much significantly stronger 32 spoked wheel is, compared to 28.

    i don't think 32 spoked is that stronger. Rim is main in wheel. so i'd take 28 spoked rather than 32, but 28 spoked front wheel is still unavailable, and i'm waiting.

    just realized - this is 29er forum. I was talking about 26 wheels.
    but reckon they have the same effect, whether 26 or 29, right?

    plus, I'm from Europe. it's cheaper here and available.

    when I get ready to get it, I'll ask Syntace again regarding that 28/32 spokes thing - just to make sure.

    I ride 2011 S-Works Enduro (which has 135x10 rear spacing) and their distributor told me they'll send me 12 to 10 mm adapter for their 135x12 rear wheel for free if I get the wheels from them - nice touch...
