So far so good
For the current sale price of $299, these can't be beat. They came perfectly true and tensioned, and with a rear skewer and front 15mm lockring. Tubeless tires were a cinch to mount with my floor pump. I'm not crazy about the anodized graphic treatment on the rims, but some might dig it.

The rims are 21mm internal width. Better than most XC offerings, and holding my 2.3-2.5 tires well, but not quite as wide as the current crop of AM/trail stuff. But whaddya want for $299?

The rear hub has quicker engagement than other Shimano hubs Ive used, and noticeably so. Cup and cone is old tech, but will last nearly forever with proper care and maintenance.

Only ridden them about a month, but they've taken a moderate beating (5-ft. drops to flat about the worst so far) without a whimper.

PROS: Lightweight, Shimano Reliability, Ust Ready, Cup-n-cone, Am Strong

CONS: Axle Not Convertible, Cup-n-cone

Solid Performance
I run these wheels tubeless, with great results. These were my first tubeless set, and I'm not going back to tubes. I had to buy a centerlock lock ring that fit the 15mm hub, but no other issues. I am very impressed with the strength, weight, and looks of these wheels. Strong buy rating!

PROS: Durable, Attractive Design, Easy To Install

"The go to wheel"
From my stock Bontrager wheels these XT shimano's is fantastic. They are my Go To Wheels. I'm running tubeless Tires and at very low tire pressure the handling is just incredible. The control is pure awesome. And coming down technical single track is a joy. My XT wheels came straight and true out of the box. I do wish the wheel had a little bit of Bling, perhaps more decal or something. At this price sold at Jenons is unbeatable. And, if you find them cheaper else where they will match it. I do not work for Jensons but I do buy from them a lot.

PROS: Good price, Looks Cool, Nice Handling, Attractive Design, Easy To Install

CONS: Need More Bling

BEST USES: Casual Riding, Mountain Biking, Upgrade

Strong and light wheelset
Been riding these wheels about a month and I'm impressed. Strong, light, and easily mounted some specialized purgatory 2.2 tires. Haven't had any significant leaks nor have I had to do any out of the box truing that you sometimes see with new wheelsets. The pawl engagement is solid and they roll great. A great wheelset for the price!

PROS: Lightweight, Easy to install, Durable

Great Wheel Set
I think this is a great wheel set. I don't think that you can ever go wrong when it comes to the XT line. These are great out of the box, no need to true them. I like the simple design, in not one for flash, just function.
