    Clyde DH hoops ?

    My trusty dusty 7" Bullit needs new hoops.

    I am stuck between Sun Ringle Rhyno Lite XL's and MTX's. I have Chris King hubs that are 32 hole. That leaves out my first choice, Outlaws.
    The MTX are heavier, are they stronger? That's what matters most to me.
    Spring and fall I run - 2.5 Minions. Summer - 2.5 High Rollers.

    Haven't run MTX or Rhyno Lite XLs, but have had great luck with Halo SAS. They are beyond beefy and come in a 32h flavor. They are a couple hundred grams more than your other options.

    Depends on which MTX...the 33's are probably a bit stronger but the 39's are probably darn near indestructible

    I use double tracks and they're very strong... but heavy.
