    Hope II Pro on ZTR Flow or Crest

    Rider Weight: 135-140lbs naked
    Bike: FS Santa Cruz Nickel 130mm suspension F&B
    Riding style: rocky / rooty / single track / max 2ft dropoffs here and there
    Tires: usually 2.3 sometimes smaller, but never bigger

    Would the Crest rims be sufficient because of my light weight of should I go with the Flows?

    Also any thoughts on the Mavic XM819 vs above?

    Thanks

    The Arch are rated to 230 Pounds. I think the Flows would be over kill

    He didn't ask about Arch, he was asking about Crest.

    I am same weight thereabouts 140lb and ride the same terrain running same hubs with Crest rims, no problem.

    It's about riding smooth as well.

    I have been running 819's on hopes for 8 years. Needed trueing once after 6, but other than that no issues. I ride over all kinds of terrain. Frequently ride off 5 foot drops to flat. I weigh 190. Hope/819 has been a good combination and weighs about 1820 grams.

    I'd look at Arch EX as a good compromise. Crests are not exactly AM rims, but surprisingly durable XC rims.

    That being said, I'm #220 and rode on Crests(with Revo 1.8/1.5) for a summer just to prove that I couldget away with that light wheels,. However: that was with both wheels on the ground, and no gnarly stuff. For a more allround rim, I'd go with the Arch EX if I was the OP.
