I am looking to buy a new wheelset for my bike. i have an ’09 Sx Trail which I use for All Mountain, Light Free-ride, and some DH. I need lighter wheels than i currently have. I have researched the DT Swiss E2200’s and have found that they are inexpensive, strong, and light. I am very eager to buy them as they fit my riding style and are in my price range. I just wanted to get an opinion on those wheels. Would you recommend them?
I’ve heard good things about DT Swiss wheels, and I’ve had good experiences with them.
The SMBA kids I coached were sponsored by DT-Swiss. Any wheel that stands up to those meatballs must be durable. DT-sponsored pro DHer Curtis Keene loaned me a light wheelset to race Sea Otter downhill. I rocked a Demo 8 with light wheels and XC tires. That’s right brother, I won my expert class.
At a retail of around $500 (with better deals available online) that E2200 wheelset looks like a good value.
As a Sun-sponsored rider, I should tell you the Sun Chargers are comparable, durable and also a great value. I have serious time on my Charger 27s, and they are rocking.
Enjoy that SX Trail,
PS: It’s snowing … AGAIN.
