Nearly Perfect Trail/Enduro Wheels
- I've put it through the wringer
As the other review states, the engagement with these Hydra hubs is awesome. Instant engagement, which is ideal when you are doing technical climbing. I have the Trail version of these, a bit lighter and narrower rims, but identical in every other way. I had the identical wheels in non-Hydra to start with, loved them. Got the Hydra version, and glad I did for the engagement. (The other wheels are my backups) Aluminum rims may not be as "cool" as carbon but I can't see why to spend $$ to get carbon rims. Sure, carbon is stiffer, but I've seen plenty of carbon rims blow up; whereas a hard hit aluminum rim will go out of true (badly at times) or taco. I have carbon wheels for my 29" bike, but swapped them for aluminum without any concerns.

If you're thinking of pulling the trigger, do it. I will never ride stock hubs again. the engagement is like all wheel drive: I'm getting up stuff I never could before. If I were a better rider maybe engagement wouldn't matter as much. The aluminum rims are pretty bomb proof. The engagement really makes a huuuuuge difference. Get em!
