    Atomlab suprelite wheels

    I just saw that Atomlab is making a 29er wheelset. Has anyone tried them out? I know the make super tough wheels, having run pimps on my DJ bike.

    The 29er is narrower at 18mm internal width, but they could be a nice option for an unbreakable wheelset. Not light at ~2kg.

    I think you can get a lighter and stronger wheel with a wider rim with Blunt SLs or even flows. With the right setup you can build a 1900g P35 wheelset.

    Depending on the price I don't see how these would be better with such a narrow rim, IMO.

    ^+1. you can build wider and lighter wheelsets for cheaper. probably just as strong too. for less money you could get a lighter and wider set of pre built bontragers if you really wanted to go the stock route.

    They look cool, but as other have said, better options out there.

    They look pretty cool. I gotta say... Atomlab used to make a triple wall rim. it was narrow, but wayyy diesel.
    No compromise.
