    Easton Havoc AM or DT Swiss X1800s???

    I am trying to decide on a new wheelset for a Yeti 575. I am 155lbs and ride technical/all mountain trails predominately and have narrowed my search to either the Havocs or X1800s.

    Does anyone know the actual weights of either wheelset?
    The X1800s require a centerlock to IS 6 bolt adapter, any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    I have had the Havocs for 3 years, the DT swiss seem like a 370 hub and plain jointed rim maybe EX line. Seems pricey for what you get $450. No magic there. I also have ridden 2 DT sets.

    Havoc is light and wide. Also adjustable front 9mm to 20mm and rear can be bolt on. I have never had a problem with straight pull proprietary spokes, but not regular j bend. The rear hub has more precise engagement and runs smoothly.

    Another alternative would be

    Good Luck,
