    Yeah, my first reaction was "dang, those rims are ginormous".
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    They look great indeed. Makes me wish I had ordered this outlook instead of UD matte. Maybe this final outer layer adds a couple of grams compared to UD.

    Oh, and they charged me $130ea plus $50 shipping. Not the listed $140/piece.
    those look nice, good pics

    actually, they are listed at 370g+/-10g, so i'd say thats pretty good...you are thinking of the narrow rims, which it sounds like you paid for

    Yes, that's right. I certainly ordered via the "wide" "Buy It Now" and they charged me the $130/ea. And yes, I definitely received the Wide rims. Weight is pretty much on the mark.

    Just placed my order for UD 32h rims only. Hopefully it'll be much faster than the road rims I ordered from them.

    I'm really hoping my 3k's come looking like that last picture. Looks like they set up the UD base, then wrapped the whole thing in 3k, which would be a lot stronger, IMO.

    Great pics, measurements, and weight. Thanks for the info! I am very tempted to order a set. gosh it is hard to take a risk on an all mountain set up. I'll be realy curious what you think of the build and such. Thanks for sharing!!!

    What would be the benefit of going with the wide version of the rim versus the narrow? Anyone know what the minimum tire size is for the wide rim?

    Looking at these for XC and endurance races

    How much lighter & narrower (internal width) are the lighter XC rims compared to these AM rims? I emailed Nancy a few days ago, no word. Makes it hard to decide which one I want :-)

    I've just had a UD matte come in at 374g. Mine has fairly obvious manufacturing marks, and one sections where someone has clearly just filed down excess material around the bead hook. Also, I suspect that the uniform surface of the UD just shows imperfections more clearly than the cross weave. Still, I am happy to experiment with it for what it cost.

    I'll try get some photos up tomorrow.

    So would a wide rim still be able to handle a 1.9 to 2.3 tires?

    Has anyone tried out their road rims as well?

    states on the website 370g +/-10 for the wide and 330 +/-10 for the narrow
    page 1 of this thread has the internal widths of both
    nancy has been getting back to me within a few hours for my last few emails, but chat is even better when they are at work

    It sounds like buyers are just starting to receive first shipments of the wider all mountain rims. Please post your experiences running tubeless. I am very interested in ordering a set but am waiting to hear of tubeless experiences. Thanks Much!

    I just got my rims today too! I got the UD version, and there are definitely marks where someone just cut and filed down the excess resin. The bond joints are very visible, and to advertise these rims to have a UST profile is pretty sketchy in my opinion.

    On the outside, the finish look pretty good, and the rims feel really light. I'd say 370 - 380 grams is about right. I dropped them off at the LBS, so they should be built up soon.

    The rim bed tapers away from the rim wall, therefore, I think these will burp pretty easily without support below.

    What is everyone's plan for tubeless? Yellow tape or the Bontrager Rhythm strip?

    I wouldn't run a 1.9" tire on a 23mm wide rim. I'd try to shoot for 2.2" at least

    This rim can probably handle up to 3" wide tire since it's internal width is identical to the Mavic 823.

    This rim is WIDE. In comparision, the DT 5.1d is 21mm wide, and Mavic 819 is 19mm, and most XC rims are 17-20mm wide.

    Any tubeless successes or failure that folks may have, please post them up. I am really on the fence about these rims, the tipping point is absolutely in the reviews about tubeless compatibility.

    They say you can only have two...light, cheap, strong

    I hope these are strong, they already have light and cheap. By strong I mean at least like a 550 gram aluminum rim.

    You can easily see the filing and the bond joints on ENVE rims as well. I just hope these rims are as successful with tubeless like their 29er version.

    This is different. I have a few sets of carbon road wheelsets, and they are finished MUCH nicer.

    For the $$, I have no complaints. Just wanted to mentioned the "imperfections" I see.

    What do you think about the UST groove? I'd feel pretty nervous with the rim beds that tapers away.

    Totally agree. Tubeless function, propensity to burp or not, will make or break these rims in my book

    I ordered some Flow rimstrips. I'll take the weight penalty to ensure a tighter seal over the yellow tape.
