Instant engagement

I was always skeptical and resisted spending this kind of money on wheels, but after riding a friends i9's, I was hooked. They are super stiff so corning is insane and the engagement when you push the pedal is confidence inspiring even in the sketchiest section of trail.

I have used the DH, AM and XC versions of these wheels and cannot find one flaw in their design, they are the perfect wheelset. I am a fan of how loud they are on the trail and love the beefy look of the spokes and hubs.
