    New Wheelset for Reign X

    Hi there,
    I'm seeking your advice for a wheelset for a Reign X. The style of riding would be rocky trails at the smoothest to heavy freeride with jumps and drops.
    The parts that i have i mind are DT Swiss 440 hubs, Mavic EX729 rims and DT Swiss spokes. Not sure how much the total weight would be but i would be happier if the wheels withstand abuse at the expense of weight. Tires would be 2.5 fronts & 2.3 rears.
    Appreciate your advice.

    Just one set?

    I am using my original WTB wheelset for AM/trail riding, and a heavier set for DH/FR, so I can also have trail and DH tires mounted, making for easy swaps depending on the ride.

    If that's the case, yeah 729s all the way. If you are using them for trail riding, you might get a bit lighter rim? (Singletrack or DT 5.1 or)
