If you have not tried out carbon wheelsets, this is your chance for sure. Much less expensive than the Enve or Easton carbon wheelsets, and granted they weigh more but are still lighter than nearly all AM wheelsets out there.

The hubs are rebranded DT Swiss 240 hubs, so you know those are great and easy to service. Super stiff and strong wheels, your immediate engagement and acceleration are noticeable. The extra stiffness in the rims helps noticeably whenever you get up to speed. Well worth it, especially since backcountry gives you their return policy. Ran mine all last season and have never been happier even after my Chris King/ZTR flow rims.
