    OK set of rims for a HT. For an AM bike? Forget it. Buy some AtomLabs or Azonics.

    To be honest, i'd look for another set of rims. I had a set of SL's, and while I never had any issues with them they worried me. Given your weight, you should be thinking 36h minimum.

    I'm just shy of 300 lbs and have been riding the Mavic Crosslands for about three or four months now with nary a problem. Same as you, XC only, no jumps or drops, just a lot of kms and I have had no problems at all (knock on wood). Wheels are still true and good to go. I'd buy them again for the price I paid (around $250) but if I had four or five hundred, I might look at something else (a buddy has Easton AM Havocs and loves 'em).

    Worth a shot!

    XC should be fine, but don't slam them into stuff or jump. I am an aggressive rider at about 240lb and found the crossmax xl to be hard to keep true. I wrote it off to my weight and fact that I do jump and mess around. I would however run them in a heartbeat for strictly xc riding.
