    xc roval control wheelset, fragile?

    i was talking to the boss of the bike shop yesterday about a lighter wheelset for my epic, i was thinking xtr but im interested in the superlight roval control wheelset found on the s works epic and stumpjumper, they are the same price as the XTR wheelset,

    he said that the roval wheels may be fragile for the terrain here, its dry and rocky and somewhat rough, but my wheels dont leave the ground and i only weigh 130 pounds, surely they would be able to hold up??

    I put my first ride on the new XC Roval wheels and so far so good. Where I ride it is very rocky and I weight 210. Specialized told me they have a lifetime warrenty so will see how it goes.

    The wheels are different but...

    I just bought a tricross with Rovals and beat the crap out of it just like a Mtn Bike. Unfortunately, the wheels flex a bit. I am 205 lbs.
