    SunRingle Helix SL TR25 vs DT X 392?

    Hello everyone!
    Firstly, please excuse me for my English, it's not my native

    I'm building a new "lighter" wheelset for my 700c (29") rigid fast commuter and jsut can't make my mind on what rim to use: SunRingle Helix SL TR25 or DT Swiss X 392.
    They are intended to be used with 700x35 - 700x40 tires (with tubes) on fairly rough urban terrain with lightweight Novatec hubs laced with 32 spokes. I'm about 85kg (187 pounds).
    Sun is about 1.5 times cheaper, 50g heavier and I just can't find reviews.
    DT... well, it's DT, it's lighter, it's a bit narrower (20mm vs 215mm internal), I love their serious site with lots of technical info...

    Is Sun worth a go? Or should I stick with DT?
    Thank you!

    Had Sun Charger experts on my mtb. Blew up the rear hub three times. Built a set of DT Swiss and never looked back.

    Thanks, Rngspnr, for your reply, but I'm about rims not hubs.
    Hubs are to be Novatec 711/712

    OK
    I still think you'd be better with DT.
