    DT 2350 s

    Anyone know if the DT 2350 wheelset is UST compatable or do I need to buy a kit? My other question is that I was talking to the DT Rep at the Snowmass finals last year and he said that the 1750 wheelset was coming in a 150mm rear spacing sometime this year. anyone else heard this? These wheels are going on my wifes Glory DH and she only weighs 115. If not any other suggestions for a light tubeless wheelset

    Tubeless...Mavic makes xm819's and the EX823's(both UST)........819's are more xc but if your wife isn't dropping higher then 4 feet and for her size I would go here.....823's are stronger...I ride those at 210 pounds

    Yeah, I am riding the 823 with a 440 hub. I was trying to find a complete wheelset, I think that I may go with the 819s. However will they be able to hold a 2.5 tire?

    Yes.

    May also want to give a look into Magura's FR wheelset...

    if it was me and a 2.5 tire then I would just get an 823.....not that much difference in weight penalty there

    Over 200g per rim when comparing the 819 vs. 823. Don't get me wrong, I'm a 260lb clyde and I'd go for the 823s every time...mine are holding up great for all my riding. But a lightweight rider, especially one not doing big drops, could possibly get away with the lighter rim and save almost a pound of rotating weight.

    Regarding tire size, according to Mavic the max recommended tire size for the 819 is 2.3". FWIW.

    I've run a 2.5 on an 819 before. The profile was really round, but I haven't run into any problems. I've been running this wheelset for local stuff that isn't real high speed but really really rocky and its been holding up very well. I weigh ~160.

    In my experience, rocks are what kills rims, not drops as much unless your landing to flat, or landing in a rock garden, or just really botch the landing.

    EDIT: 200g is quite a bit of difference in weight. IIRC, the 819's w/ eyelets weigh about the same as DT 5.1's

    Right off the mavic website, 823's are 657g and 819's are 450g's, of course adding ~60g to both for eyelets....a litte bit more than 80g's.
