    Alex SUPRA 4X for a hack

    So I'm getting a set of Wheels built for by DH/FR Bike as I keep destroying mine.
    Last rim was a Mavix ex325 and only lasted about a month, and got flatspotted when I landed on a loose rock.

    Been chatting with my LBS about a few different rim's and we are currently been looking at the Supra 4x.

    Basically looking for a rim that's no too wide, tough and sub 700g.

    The 4X looked to have really nice feature with the bead seat, which is good as I will run tubless.

    I was looking for a welded rim but this "4 pin" design sounds interesting.

    Does anyone have experience with this rim?

    Maybe, instead, you should run tires with stiffer sidewalls? Like Big Bettys. Don't tell me you're running Kendas?
