I've done as much chasing on this rim as i can but does anyone here have any experience of them?

What are they like compared to a mavic xc717, i have bought some hope hoops with a pro 2 hub and the 4.2's but my old wheel was xc717 with an xc hub.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

    , not had the xc717! , but the 4.2d , got them when merlin were selling them with XT hubs and xt rotors

    touch wood, been fine, i weigh 13 stone, ride Llandegla, marin and such like, dont really get air born!

    seem fine, true so far! was thinking to send them off to merlin for a service ( bearings such like) in november

    have head reports the rims can be a bit soft? i run at 30 to 40 psi ( 2.1 inch tires), no issues yet!
