    New rims for trigger 29

    I had my front rim ruined on trigger 1 29er and need to replace it. I think I am going to upgrade both wheels while I am doing it. Just going to have new rims laced to the stock hubs. What rims do you recommend for what I would call aggressive trail riding no large drops just small ones. They will be ran tubeless. I was thinking arch ex or flow ex, but am open to anything. I want to do it right the first time. I am around 205lb with gear. I appreciate the help, I am new to the all mountain type of riding so I'm not to familiar with these setups.

    Stans FLOW EX, that's what I replaced the front with and am right at your weight to +10 above

    I'd go for Mavic EN821.
    Proper UST, wide enough and not too heavy.

    I have the same bike as you do, and though my wheels are still in one piece, I'll probably be upgrading to Mavic and moving Crest to my light HT bike.

    Crest are not a bad rim at all, they survived some quite aggressive riding, but I'm not that confident in them and Trigger deserves a stronger rim.
