The wheels weigh 1700g and are unproven. That is around the weight of most good Alu wheels, why risk it?

I received my first set of yishun mtb wheels, I got the wider 29er, weights: 7692/9413, 28-32h :lol:
They look perfect and well packaged, I've no experience of China mtb carbon wheels, but i am happy with my purchase, it is the cheapest carbon wheel but quality seems very good
the picture i will upload tomorrow

I definitely agree here Dan. Alloy would be a safe bet. And I have read horror stories on RBR when people would try to warranty these things.

Most carbon 29er wheels are under 1500 grams now....even light-bicycles, which are not much more and known to be good.
