Turquoise makes all things better! Got these for my SB5c, was running 730mm bars but felt a bit too cramped so I opted for these. I tried the 785mm but definitely too wide for my small frame (5'7" 145lb) so I cut them down to 765mm. With a short 50mm stem the cockpit now feels perfect!

Wider is better!

Just got these for my SB5c. I was worried that 35mm internal might be too wide especially with no real lighter tires in the 2.3-2.8 width range. I mounted Maxxis DHF 2.3 and DHRII 2.3 front/rear on and so far they seem to be working well and retains a rounded profile instead of a square profile that happens when you slap on a too small of a width tire. I definitely love the more muted, planted feel, and notice the increased traction that they provide. The DT Swiss 54POE is also fantastic. I have upgraded my star ratchet on my previous wheel set and have had no issues with them for over a year. I expect same quality and durability from these as well!
I have had the Chinese carbon light bicycle 30mm internal rims in the past and these feel similar to them. Overall I highly recommend these if prefer getting an inexpensive (for carbon) no frills wheelset! If you want to save more money (Maybe a few bills and in sacrifice for warranty) go the Chinese Carbon route with a custom build.

Fantastic fork. I was on a pike 150 on my SB66c for a year, loved that fork and since then no fork came close to same riding characteristics until now. I currently ride a sb5c, had the stock 2015 Fox 140mm on for a few months, couldn't find the sweet spot for it so I sold it, put on my old 2013 PUSHed for the last 6 months and still felt like settings weren't right. Replaced it immediately when this came out and very happy I did. It's lighter than a Pike, rides stiffer, more supple but doesn't blow through it's travel and has better small bump compliance from previous Fox models. If you're looking for a new fork that's set and go this one is it.
