    It does suck they were putting out questionable product (spoke drilling angle) in the beginning. I'm just passing the info i rcvd along.

    My 65mm Black Eagles that i bought last winter laced up real nice. No weird angles FYI

    They're responsive, but sadly that doesn't help moving the packet forward. It's still stuck somewhere between China and Europe, with no tracking movement since beginning of August - 2 months now.

    Nextie has suggested sending replacement rims so let's see how this works out... Will post an update.

    Can anyone share their measured ERD on the Xiphias 85mm rim?

    They list it as 542mm.

    I used that number on mine and got the right lenght.
    The number looks right.

    Finally got the rims after more than 2 months of waiting Nextie was responsive during the whole time, but no idea why the courier too so god damn long.

    Long story short, Xiphias' are being built soon. My measurement for ERD was 543 mm, but the spoke length change is minimal compared to officially stated ERD 542 mm.

    For given width they're pretty light, but also with noticeable flex when being squeezed together. Should be fine for snow usage though. Tubeless with Vanhelga inflates OK, just a bit of soap needed.

    Nice! Glad you finally got your rims!

    Squeezed across the circumference or the cross section?

    So i have some 65mm already and I'm in the budget for a wider pair of rims.

    85mm is a good and little bit lighter all rounder but the 105mm would offer max float.

    Knowing I have the 65's would you folks have more use for 85's or 105's?

    @Kirkerik: yeah It was an awful long wait, but at least the guys are responsive.

    Flex is noticeable when squeezed across the circumference. After all, it's a 85 mm single wall rim with only 520 g. Can't really compare it when you have the same weight rim in a 35-40 mm package for MTB. Those are considerably stiffer.

    If you already have 65 mm my take would be 105 mm for snow & float. Depends on your frame, I'm a bit limited with clearance so I went with 85 mm.
