    Upgrades to stock Mach 429C X01

    Just got this bike and it is fantastic however I have been thinking about upgrading the wheels to make it a better climber. I can't find any info on the stock DT Swiss wheels that came with it and am not sure if it is worth upgrading to Nox, Ibis or Specialized carbon rims.

    If not the wheels, any other upgrades any Mach 429 owner might recommend to enhance the performance of the bike?

    Thanks

    I have built numerous 429c and hands down, people love when we put I9's on them over DT's. Hub engagement and the dwlink traction is just unfair when climbing technical terrain. I9 now have there reyonlds built carbon rims which is even stiffer and lighter than they originally were which is mind blowing cause they were amazing before.

    Wide carbon rims on a quality wheel build is a tremendous improvement.
