Looking to score a wheelset for the holidays? Maybe a nice gift to yourself? If you are in the market for a beefier all mountain wheelset or a freeride light wheelset; this is a solid choice. The 41% off makes it look even better.
The Mavic En321 is a sturdy rim that can withstand a significant amount of abuse. The En321 is made to endure light to moderate freerding so you can run these Mavics on your wheelset so most people have nothing to worry about with this wheelset. Exceptions would be if you are doing some epic freeriding in places like the North Shore. This rim is a great choice for your all mountain baby that you are looking to rip down the mountain on as it is a pretty substantial rim.
This wheelset is rounded out with the Shimano M756 XT hubs for the front and rear. I ride the Shimano M756 XT on my Specialized Enduro (check out my Specialized Enduro Review) as the M756 XT hub is a great balance between weight and durability – This is super important to me as I tend to ride my gear pretty hard. If you ride hard like I do, the XT series is great. While it isn’t as light as the XTR components, the XT line IS high quality and significantly more durable than XTR product. The Wheelset is completed with brass nipples and DT DB spokes. And, of course, this wheelset is 6 bolt disc compatible.
You should be looking at the Shimano XT 756 Mavic En321 Wheelset if you are looking to grab a wheelset for your all mountain bike that you can depend on. Unfortunately CBO didn’t give us a weight on this one (I’m sure if you called them up, they would be happy to tell you the exact weight), but this is going to be a little heavy for an XC or maybe even all mountain light bike, but makes up for it with the ability to cope with heinous downhills.
Bottom line: rock solid wheelset, dirt cheap price. For $200 (Save $150) it’s hard to complain about.
