    Sram Rise 60 29er - Carbon Wheels - anyone try these?

    I'm looking for some feedback on these wheels: RISE 60 29" | SRAM

    There is a bunch of marketing info out, but not much that I can find in the way of real knowledge.

    The only thing I can see wrong with these wheels is the internal width of 19mm?

    In europe 1,800 RISE 60

    IMHO... better add a bit more money and get 250gr lighter Ax-Lightness tubelars.
    In this price tag and weight SRAM is too expensive. But one pros - it is light and/for clincher!

    AX lightness pretty much cannot be bought in the U.S. and there are not many options for Tubular Tires.

    These can be had (found on sale) for $1,100 (USD) for a pair.

    No ****! I have been saving for roval control SLs but would consider the rise 60s for $600 less.

    Though I need more info.

    What hubs are these built on? POE? TLR rims? Weight limit? Warranty?

    The species excel in all of those categories.

    That is a viable option for an entry level carbon wheelset. A little heavy compared to the control SLs and the rise 60s though...
