    Best freeride/dh wheelset for 6x6 bike

    What is the best freeride/dh wheelset for my turner 6pack.

    I already have a set for cross country:

    mavic 819
    hadley rear hub w/ thru axle
    marzocchi front 20mm


    I was thinking to get the same wheelset except for using different rims; maybe mavic 823, DT Swiss 6.1, or maybe one of the new easton rims.

    I would like to be tubeless capable, and will be using these rims for shuttle days and stunts. I'm not taking any big jumps/drops yet...nothing over 3-4 feet.

    Thanks

    What about
    DT EX 5.1d, their new enduro rim. Add some CK or Hadley hubs and Sapim CX Ray spokes and you have very nice, very light, very strong and very expensive wheelset.
