Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After years of being a carbon snob and riding many of the well known carbon wheels, I decided to switch back to aluminum after a few too many cracks and other issues. The weight, efficiency, and tracking of carbon wheels still has my heart, but I couldn't stand the time off my bike waiting for warranty replacements to show up. One good way around this is to have an inexpensive backup wheelset, but I had always heard people rave about I9 wheels so I decided to go another route and try out a high-end aluminum wheel for once.
I have a few hundred miles on mine now, and I have been loving them. They really do rival carbon for ride quality, but at a much lower price point and with less fear of breaking down.
And the real cherry on top is the I9 hubs... the noise may be a love/hate thing I could see why you would find it annoying, but the instant engagement is incredible.
I would recommend these wheels to anyone, as long as the specs/intended use fit the bill of course. I still have love for carbon, but I don't think I'll go as far out of my way to get it anymore.
