Happy with RF wheels
I'm a All mountain/downhill rider. I've been rolling on this wheelset for 5 months now with a set of 2.40 highroller 2's 4 rubber and the only issue so far was some loose spokes on the back end. Raceface recommends xc and trail for these rims but after a long convo with the forks at RF they assured me this wheelset could hold up to anything I could throw at it and so far so good. The trails I ride and race should have tacoed these wheels by now. Rim width is a bit narrow so it narrows tire size but 4 all mountain enduro riding 2.40 is plenty wide enough.

PROS: Easy To Install, Lightweight, Durable, Attractive Design

CONS: Limited Compatibility

BEST USES: Upgrade, Mountain Biking

Nice wheel set, easy tubeless conversion
I got these wheels with a Jenson custom bike with the XD 11 Sram free hub. Quality seems very good - rims are absolutely true and spokes are very tight. The SRAM hub is noisier than the Shimano I'm used to, but not excessively loud and good for letting other trail users know I'm behind them. Converting to tubeless was easy. There is some confusion as to whether you can use the stock rim strips or not. I just installed a tubeless stem and sealant and they sealed up fine at first (Nobby Nic tubeless ready tires), but the rear was plagued with recurring slow leaks until I installed tubeless rim tape. The front is still trouble-free with the stock rim strip after 200 miles of rocky/rooty single track. You can take your chances with the rim strip, but I'd advise taping the rims.

Solid light weight wheels
I got these wheels and set them up tubeless without issue. Been riding them on roots and rocks around New England and they've performed quite well, no issues so far after a full season.

PROS: Tubeless Ready, Lightweight

would not recommend
This wheel set came on a banshee rune I purchased and are not well matched for the riding application of the rune. In a handful of rides, I average atleast one pinch flat per ride and have bent the lip of both front and rear rims. No confidence at all in these rims. Weak... These rims must be for lighy duty only... like pavement.. Needless to say, I am going with a beefier wheel and tubeless setup.

PROS: Lightweight

CONS: Durability

I,
Just got a Yeti 575 from Jenson and it came with those wheels. Do I need to add or switch the tape inside to make them tubeless ?

Regards,

Philip
Philip on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used the rim strips that came with the wheels and they seemed to seal up OK at first. But I had recurring slow leaks on the rear (through the stem and spoke holes) so I just installed the yellow rim tape. Too soon to tell if that was the problem, but so far so good. If I did it again, I'd tape both wheels from the start. The rim strip that comes with the wheels is just a strip of plastic that's stretched over the rim. It's kind of a pain cleaning all the sealant and sealant crystals off the rim so the tape will stick if you need to redo it.
The only listing is for a SRAM XD driver, is this the only option in stock? Or is it a mistake. I need a regular Shimano driver.

are these also QR or just thru axle?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's your standard thru axle. 15mm front and 12mm rear. No QR option that I'm aware of.
