    Syncros XR RC wheels? Any idea weight, DT Swiss equivalent, reviews. Thanks'

    I'm thinking of buying a Scott Scale 900 RC 2014, and curious about Syncros XR RC wheels that come on bike?

    If they require that dt swiss rubber band conversion kit, they are garbage. That tubeless set up sucks... But I hear they eliminated that kit, and the tubeless setup is better now. Ask a Scott dealer, or maybe someone here knows...

    Also the syncros wheels tend to be heavy...

    I think we had them on the scale at the shop and they came in just under 1700g. Not great. I picked up some DT Swiss XR1501 Splines for $1000 on ebay and they were 1500g - same weight at Syncros' carbon XR1.0 wheels. Tubeless setup that came in the boxes was just some tape and valve stems and worked perfectly first try.

I picked up some DT Swiss XR1501 Splines for $1000 on ebay (brick and mortar bike retailer, full warranty) and they were 1500g with the XD Driver - same weight as Syncros' carbon XR1.0 wheels. Tubeless setup that came in the boxes was just some tape and valve stems and worked perfectly first try. Gotta be the lightest alloy 29er wheelset on the market I would think... and unlike Stan's, they haven't needed truing after every ride.
