Hi can anyone summarise the differences between the two above wheels?

There seems to be a choice between the two on a set of wheels and I'm not sure of the difference that the rims will make.


  • The rim defines if the wheel is stiff and will decide how long the wheel lasts. Stans are a bit too light to be stiff and durable.
    Also, Stans are tubeless ready rims, while open pro are clincher only
