Strengths:    Strong! Retail cost is reasonable. Nice product construction and performance.

Weaknesses:    Not as strong as Deep-V's at a slightly higher cost, but a lot lighter.

Bottom Line:   
I have been using these rims (32 hole) laced 3x to some surly hubs with DT 14/15 spokes and I am very impressed with their strength. While carrying a bag and panniers full of textbooks, I have run straight trough some mean potholes, bumps and even a few tree roots with zero rim damage. No truing so far at about 500 miles, and the wheels are less than a sixteenth of an inch out of true (more than likely, this is just relieved stress from the initial build). Of course, I am a lightweight and, along with the books I always carry, I tip the scales at around 160lbs.

Favorite Ride:   Long and vicious.

Similar Products Used:   Mavic Open Pro

Bike Setup:   Old steel bike (singlespeed road bike) set up with a rear rack for panniers. 28c tires.

Hutchinson Fusion 3 splitting rubber

I've got brand new Hutchinson Fusion 3 tyres running on Shimano Ultegra 6700 rims and they are splitting, front and rear, unevenly, all along the top of the rim. Is this normal? Is it ok to ride and keep riding or should I be worried and demand an exchange/refund?Read More »

Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless Blew Off Rim

So I am sitting here at work today and all of a sudden I hear a huge bang. I walk outside on my patio to see my rear tire clearly blown off the rim. The bike was not in the Sun and the tire pressure was about 100PSI so it should not have done this. Rim ZTR Crest 29er on My Cannondale Bad Boy (co ... Read More »
