    Dt Xr 1450?

    I'm 200 pds, I ride a Yeti ASR5 C.
    Mainly XC and marathon race.

    Are they strong enough?

    Any experience?

    Thanks

    Best upgrade I've made

    I love these wheels but I weigh a bit less at around 170.

    DT-S rates the XR400 rims used in these wheels at 90kg max. rider weight, so you're right at the limit. If you ride smooth, they're probably all right, otherwise, you may want something a little stronger. You also might want to be riding 32 spoke wheels, not 28 spoke wheels. Check out the X1600, or go custom built.
    Hey everybody, ride my wheels! They ride good, real good.
