Anyone tried these rims. A claimed weight of 276g apparently. I can't imagine they are very robust but for WW...

I think I have got the name right but any user experience welcome as I want to build myself a wheel set with these rims in 26" form.

I wonder if these have the same or similar bead seat technology/design as the Stan's Podium MMX rims.

Flexy, even for my 127lbs. frame. I suggest get the lightbicycles.com carbon rims.

Ryde is the new name for Rigida rims and is owned by Sapim, I have their Edge 7 rims (375g) on my bike, put them on the hubs myself (first wheel build) and not had any issues!

Great rims if you like true-ing your wheels :d
Have one set myself. taco-ed the front rim in the first race, with a small crash/mistake. Wasn't even a crash actually :D
Friend of me has also a set and rear wheel is wobbly. I had 2 setes of Gold Race rims from ZTR and they kept fine all the time. I'm 68 kg's. the rims are great, but can't handle heavy tracks, only fast smooth but then they are super light also!!.
I build mine with Extralite hyperrear and hyperlefty hub with cx-rays. wheelset is 1220 grams including rimtape!! 29"!.
Wheels are staying fine now for 500km already i think :D
Ride First!!

I wonder about these you see for a road disc brake build. I think for that they will be fine and silly light.

@ ninko

Is your wheelset for sale, just saw a set identical to yours yesterday.
I've been thinking about purchasing them but they aren't my size, I'm looking to build 650's, with QR, I believe yours were 142x12.
