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

Ok rims but good for the price
I had been meaning to upgrade my OEM wheelset on my Kona Process 134 for a while. When I saw the price of these I decided to try them out. The price and weight combo seemed a little bit too good to be true which ended up being the case. When they originally arrived the spokes were all pretty loose. The rims do feel a little fragile overall. I brought my bike in for a regular tuneup and afterwards the spokes felt much tighter. The ride of the aeffects can be summarized as somewhat loose/bouncy. I ended up purchasing a set of WTB Frequency rims and having those custom built at a shop. Although it cost more these rims feel much better than the aeffects and were not a waste of money.

If looking for a upgrade from OEM wheels I would say pass on these and save a little more money to get yourself a custom built wheelset in the 500 - 600 price range. Moral of the story, you get what you pay for.

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

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.
A shopper on Jan 18, 2017
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.
Will the quick release endcaps convert the wheels to 10 x 135mm rear and 9 x 100 mm front?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2017
are these also QR or just thru axle?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These wheels include front and rear QR hub end caps.
It says 9 and 10 drivetrain, cathe freehub fit an 11 or i have to buy a different freehub?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will fit only XD driver cassettes such as SRAM X01 11 speed and X01 Eagle 12 speed.
