Incredibly light and super-tough wheels!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am so impressed with this wheelset. I was a little skeptical of how light these are, but they have held up to countless rock gardens, ruts, roots, and drops. I've never had to true them and they are still perfectly round. Tubeless setup was very easy. I run a Nobby Nic up front and Rocket Ron in the rear (24/27 respectively for my 175lb rider weight) and traction is great on my 150mm Intense Carbine. The Aerocomp spokes are really beefy/thick, which is how I suspect they can get away with such a low spoke count. I love the DT 190-based spline hubset which takes the XTR centerlock rotors I prefer. My only gripe is the hub uses the 18-pt ratchet and not the 36-pt standard. You would think they could have tossed that in on a $3K wheelset? I upgraded mine and the procedure was almost too easy. I would easily recommned this to anyone who rides aggressively; their performance far surpasses their XC-oriented weight, feeling right at home on "trail" and "enduro". If you can even find these, get 'em!

The image shows the "stealth" version, but the title and description don't mention that feature. Is it in fact the "stealth" model? Also, if I order it even though it's not currently in stock, how long does it take to actually get it from the distributor and [ultimately] to me? Are we talking a few weeks or will it be months? TIA.
